Breast Augmentation Without An Implant: How It Works

By | Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift, Breast | No Comments
Breast augmentation is a procedure that increases the size of the breasts. Typically, an implant or fat are used during a breast augmentation procedure to achieve larger breasts. However, some patients may benefit from a surgery known as auto augmentation. Auto augmentation is a breast augmentation procedure that does not utilize any foreign material to achieve larger breasts. How does this work?   Breast augmentation without an implant utilizes a breast lift procedure to correct sagging breasts, while repositioning breast tissue for a natural augmentation. Auto augmentation does not provide the dramatic results that traditional breast implants can. However, for many patients, these are subtle, natural results are preferable.   Dr. Jonov performs the procedure similar to a breast lift. Making an incision down the breast, he will lift the nipples and areolas. He will then carefully move existing breast tissue into a more flattering and youthful position. This creates a perkier, fuller breast.    Auto augmentation is a wonderful option for patients who have some breast sagging and volume loss, but do not want breast implants. Depending on your goals, it can also be part of a traditional breast augmentation.

Causes Of Drooping Breasts

By | Breast Lift, Breast, Mommy Makeover | No Comments
Droopy, saggy breasts often serve as a source of insecurity and annoyance. Not only can they make buying bras and clothing difficult, sometimes overly large, saggy breasts can cause chronic pain. There are many causes of sagging breasts and discovering the cause can allow your plastic surgeon to devise the best plan for your Bellevue breast surgery.    First off, saggy breasts can run in families. Breasts come in all shapes and sizes and genetics plays a role. Some women may be predisposed to developing droopy breasts later in life, or others may have fuller breasts that naturally droop. In these cases, either a breast lift or reduction may address these concerns.    Secondly, pregnancy and breastfeeding can result in a loss of breast tissue as well as the stretching of the skin on and around the breast. Another common cause of drooping breasts, this stretched, excess skin sometimes combined with less breast tissue can cause breast ptosis. Normally, a breast lift can resolve these issues and for women who have given birth can be part of a mommy makeover surgery that targets the breasts and abdomen.   Finally, general aging and lifestyle can cause breast sag overtime. Smoking can increase the chances and amounts of breast ptosis. Other times, aging simply causes the breasts to sag as skin loses laxity. Depending on the specifics of your breasts, a breast lift, reduction, or breast augmentation may benefit you.   Determining the cause of drooping breasts at your consultation, will help Dr. Jonov plan the perfect breast lift for your needs.

Breast Lift Or Reduction: Which Is Best For Me?

By | Breast Lift, Breast, Breast Reduction | No Comments

A breast lift and a breast reduction are extremely similar and sometimes even utilize the same surgical techniques. Therefore, for women wanting to lift their sagging breasts and get rid of extra skin and fat, it can be hard to distinguish which procedure will best benefit them. 

A breast lift is usually performed for women who experience breast sagging or ptosis. This can happen naturally with aging, breast feeding, and hormonal changes. During this surgery, the nipple is usually repositioned and extra skin and fat removed to make the breasts look perkier. A breast reduction often involves repositioning the nipple and removing certain amounts of skin and tissue. 

The main difference between these procedures is usually the amount of tissue removed. During a breast lift, Dr. Jonov will attempt to remove the least amount of breast tissue possible. Usually, a breast reduction surgery removes more tissue and there may not be breast ptosis or sagging to correct. While the surgical techniques are similar, the goals are different. 

A breast reduction can also relieve problems like back pain, rashes, and recurrent skin infections on or under the breasts when these are caused by overly large breasts. Breast lifts typically do not provide this same kind of relief like a reduction.

Some patients choose to add on a facial plastic surgery, Brazilian butt lift, or other cosmetic surgery.

During your consultation with Dr. Jonov at The Gallery of Cosmetic Surgery, you can discuss what you want to achieve with your mommy makeover and determine if you are a good candidate.
