What Are My Breast Surgery Options?
Breast surgery procedures can accomplish a host of different goals. Dr. Leedy will discuss all of your options, from single procedures designed to address a specific concern to combination procedures that complement one another to affect a more comprehensive outcome.
For women, breast surgery options at Cleveland Plastic Surgery Institute include:
- Breast augmentation: Dr. Leedy can enhance the size and volume of your breasts through placement of silicone, saline, or form-stable “gummy bear” breast implants, or via targeted fat grafting to the breasts
- Breast lift: Breast lift surgery offsets the effects of aging, heredity, gravity, and other factors that cause the breasts to droop
- Breast reduction: Many women suffer physical pain and self-consciousness because of oversized breasts; reduction surgery can alleviate physical symptoms and emotional concerns
- Breast reconstruction: Reconstruction of the breasts is generally performed as part of the recovery process for breast cancer survivors. Dr. Leedy will provide personalized recommendations for reconstruction using breast implants, tissue flaps, and other options
- Breast revision surgery: Breast implants are long-lasting, but they don’t last forever; in the event that you are dissatisfied with prior augmentation procedures or experience complications from breast implants, Dr. Leedy can remove the implant and replace it as needed
- Breast Implant Removal
- Transgender Top Surgery
Women aren’t the only ones who want to change their chests. Male breast reduction is a popular procedure among men who feel self-conscious about “man boobs.” Known clinically as gynecomastia, surplus male breast tissue is often a source of embarrassment.
