Which Breast Procedure Is Right for You?
When considering surgery to reshape and revitalize your breasts, there’s one essential first step: discussing your goals with an experienced, widely respected plastic surgeon. For hundreds of satisfied patients in Scottsdale, Mesa, Phoenix and throughout Arizona, that trusted surgeon is Dr. Genaro Valladolid.
Dr. Valladolid is at the vanguard of the latest innovations in the field, applying advanced technology to match your dreams with the ultimate result. His surgical expertise includes breast augmentation, breast reduction and breast lift.
Dr. Valladolid uses silicone or saline implants to add volume to breasts, improve their profile and correct any asymmetry that may exist. Saline is essentially salt water, and the silicone variety uses a gel that many patients report has a more natural feel. One type of silicone implant, the popular “gummy bear,” announces its supple consistency in its name. Each type of filling is enveloped in a silicone shell.
Patients can select from a wide range of shapes, including the round or teardrop varieties which provide the most fullness at the base of the breast.
The surgical technique used also varies. A transaxillary technique begins with incisions that are made under the armpits; this approach minimizes noticeable scarring. In an inframammary procedure, the incision is made under the breasts, while a periareolar procedure places the incision around the nipple.
Many women are happy with their breast size but hope to reclaim a youthful, perky look by elevating the breasts and eliminating sagging skin. Sagging may have occurred as a result of pregnancy, changes in weight, or aging. With breast lift, Dr. Valladolid repositions breast tissue and can also return low or downward-pointing nipples to a natural position. For an even more dramatic change in your profile, breast lift can be combined with a breast augmentation procedure.
Sometimes a woman’s breasts are too large for her frame, causing back and neck pain, soreness, inflammation, and even embarrassment and lower self-esteem. Breast reduction surgery can sculpt a trim upper body by reducing breast size, adjusting the position of the nipple, reducing the size of the areola, improving symmetry and creating a more youthful appearance.
