Wish your breasts were perkier, larger, or smaller? Today’s plastic surgery options are broad, letting you achieve the aesthetic you long for with a careful and precise cosmetic adjustment. The result could boost your self-confidence and self-esteem, and even correct certain health issues.
At Laughlin Plastic Surgery, with locations in Annapolis, and Easton, Maryland, Dr. Daniel Laughlin can help explain all of your options. You can choose from a breast lift, breast augmentation, or even breast reduction.
Do your breasts hang unevenly? Are they positioned on your chest in such a way that you have trouble achieving cleavage? Have you noticed the effects of gravity making your nipples point downward? All of these issues can be resolved with a breast lift, or mastopexy.
A mastopexy typically involves a few incisions that allow Dr. Laughlin to access your breast tissue. He’ll reshape and lift your breasts, then get rid of excess skin before closing the incisions. If needed, he can reshape and reposition your areolas so they are centered and perky.
If you want your breasts to be larger, Dr. Laughlin can perform breast augmentation. He can help you decide if you prefer implants made from silicone or from saline, and the size of your new breasts.
Your breast augmentation can be completed through an incision below the curve of your breast, an incision around your areola, or an incision in your armpit, depending on the size and type of implant you choose and your existing breast tissue.
Overly large or sagging breasts can cause neck pain or back pain as well as issues with self confidence. If you have always wished for a smaller bust, Dr. Laughlin can perform a breast reduction surgery to minimize and reshape your breasts to be smaller and lighter.
Breast reduction can be even more rewarding than breast augmentation, since the surgery can resolve so many issues for women who are unhappy with their heavy breasts. Dr. Laughlin will work with you to determine how your new breasts should look, and carefully remove excess tissue and skin for a beautiful result.
Are you wondering if you could be a good candidate for breast surgery? You’ll need to be a safe weight for Dr. Laughlin to complete your surgery, and you’ll also need to stop smoking well in advance of your surgery date. You can expect a consultation with Dr. Laughlin before you schedule your surgery, to walk through your options and get a visual idea of what your breasts will look like after surgery.
