Breast Surgery in Lexington, KY
At Dowden Plastic Surgery, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. William L. Dowden offers several different breast procedures for both men and women. The typical reason for a breast surgery is to improve the breast appearance, as well as enhance patient self-image and self-confidence. Dowden Plastic Surgery offers breast procedures to residents from Lexington, Georgetown, and the surrounding area of Kentucky.
Types of Breast Enhancement Procedures
We perform breast augmentation to increase breast projection and fullness. Typical candidates for the procedure are women who want to amend breast(s) appearance and improve their self-image. During the procedure, we place breast implants, made of saline or silicone, inside the breasts to make them fuller and bigger. Breast augmentation is also used to restore volume after significant weight reduction, or to reconstruct breasts after mastectomy or injury.
A breast lift helps improve the breast shape and appearance, instead of adding size to them. The procedure is typically used to treat breasts that are sagging, flat or elongated, unsupported, have nipples that point downward, or have stretched and/or enlarged areolas.
Breast reduction is used to remove excess breast fat and skin to achieve a breast size that is more suitable for your body type. Large breasts can be an encumbrance, causing both physical and emotional problems. Breast reduction helps reduce your breast size and can help alleviate large breast discomfort and inconvenience.
Revisional breast surgery is used to improve or adjust the results of previous breast surgery. A typical candidate for revisional breast surgery is a patient that has suffered from breast changes due to aging, weight fluctuations or gravity. Revisional breast surgery is also required if you have problems with your breast implants, such as leakage or deflation. Revisional breast surgery is typically more complicated and carries more risks than the initial procedure. Sometimes changes in the skin, fat, or muscle tissue cannot be corrected.
Male breast reduction is used to treat gynecomastia, a condition that leads to the breast enlargement in men. The condition might be caused by an increase in fat, glandular tissue or both, and typically affects both breasts. Dowden Plastic Surgery can help evaluate your condition and plan a treatment strategy based on your individual case.
Finding out that you’re at high risk of breast cancer leads to difficult questions and decisions. Prophylactic mastectomy is surgery to remove one or both breasts to reduce the risk of developing breast cancer.
Breast reconstruction includes a variety of procedures performed to restore the form and shape of the breast, following mastectomy or lumpectomy surgery. Breast implants can be used, as well as your own skin, fat, and muscle.
