The two most common methods for breast enhancement are using a silicone breast implant or transferring your own fat. Dr. Sieber offers the best of both in performing composite breast augmentations. During this procedure, a breast implant is placed to help increase the size of the breast. Liposuction is performed at the same time as any problem areas, most commonly taken from the abdomen, flanks, arms, and inner thighs. The harvested fat is then transferred to the breast to further enhance the breast shape.
At Sieber Plastic Surgery, we believe that no woman should have to live with breasts that don’t make her happy. Maybe you were born with breasts that are smaller than you’d like. Maybe they’ve lost volume due to pregnancy and breast feeding or are sagging now with age. Whatever the reason, breast augmentation surgery can quickly and effectively change the size, shape and appearance of your breasts. Our goal with any breast augmentation procedure is to not just deliver your desired outcome, but to find the ideal implant for your individual body. Why? Because no two women are alike which means that what works for your friend, may not work for you.
Breast Implant Revision
Although every surgeon strives to deliver the best possible result the first time around, many women who have had prior breast augmentations wind up being unhappy with their results and require a breast implant revision. The reasons are varied. Some women are simply not happy with their size. Others may develop asymmetries in their breasts following surgery from capsular contracture, implant rupture, or malpositioned implants. Some simply want to exchange the type of implant used. Whatever the reason, Dr. David Sieber has extensive experience in breast implant revision surgery and prides himself on delivering superior results for his patients.
All women are born with some degree of breast asymmetry. It’s simply part of what makes us human. However, for certain women, this breast asymmetry may be significant, resulting in poor body image and low self-esteem. Breast asymmetry can also be the result from a less than ideal prior breast augmentation, and is one of the primary reasons for breast revision surgery. Breast asymmetry can range from a difference in breast size, breast shape, or position on the chest wall. Dr. David Sieber has extensive training in the correction of breast asymmetry whether congenital or from prior surgeries. During your initial consultation, he’ll work with you to determine the underlying cause of your breast asymmetry and to come up with the best plan for achieving more natural symmetry in your breasts.
Perky breasts appear to be more youthful looking breasts. A breast lift is a surgical procedure to literally lift your breasts to a higher point on your chest wall. Whether you were born with sagging breasts or your breast shape has simply changed due to age, weight loss/gain or pregnancy, a breast lift will help revitalize your breasts, restoring a more youthful contour to your entire torso.
Breast Reduction San Francisco
It may seem as if most women in the world only want larger breasts, but this isn’t actually the case. There are a lot of women of all ages with overly large breasts who dream of making them smaller. Patients with very large breasts complain of constant pain, discomfort and emotional distress. The latter is particularly true for teenagers. They often can’t play sports or dress the way that they’d like because of the size of their breasts. For them, breast reduction surgery can be life changing.
After breastfeeding, massive weight loss, or simply aging, the breasts lose their youthful appearance. The reasons for this are multiple and many women seek out a breast lift to remove excess breast skin and reposition the breast into a higher position on the chest wall. Although breast lifts work great for moving a low breast up, they do not help restore lost volume of the breast, especially in the upper portions. For increased upper pole fullness, a breast implant can be placed at the same time to restore lost volume of the breasts.
Breast Fat Transfer
Not every woman wants to have breast implants if they are unhappy with the size and/or shape of their breasts. Newer techniques have helped to refine a process called fat grafting where fat is removed from one part of the body and placed into another. It is used to enhance the size and shape of the breasts and buttocks and is also commonly used for facial rejuvenation in place of fillers. Fat transfer can also be used to help correct subtle breast asymmetry and may be used as an adjunct to breast augmentation. An additional benefit is that liposuction needs to be performed to harvest the fat, allowing you to remove fat from stubborn areas. Having your own fat instead of an implant is very important to many women and is possible at Sieber Plastic Surgery.
Breast Implant Removal
Whether for health, personal, or other reasons, some women just don’t want breast implants anymore. This could be due to implants which are too large, capsules which have formed around the implants, implants which have ruptured, or because you just want to get back to a less augmented look.
