Yikes! It’s almost summer

But it’s definitely not too late to have the breast enhancement surgery you’re craving.

Breast surgeries at Chicago Iteld Plastic SurgeryMany people think breast enhancement surgery requires a long recovery. But that isn’t the case. With today’s techniques, and my narcotics-free recovery approach, you can have breast surgery now and have the improved breast profile in time to buy and wear fabulous summer fashion.

Let’s look at breast enhancements techniques:

Augmentation

Breast augmentation is a highly customizable procedure. You have options to choose your size and shape, as well as implant fill of either gummy bear silicone or saline. Another option is to use your own fat (see fat transfer below). Beyond the implants you choose, you also have options of where they are placed, including subpectoral and subglandular. And more options! There are also three incision location options: under your arm (Transaxillary); around your nipple (Periareolar); and the crease under your breast (Inframammary).

If all this sounds a bit overwhelming, the good news is we use Vectra 3D imaging to help you virtually “try on” sizes and shapes so you can visualize what your appearance could be after breast augmentation surgery.

Fat transfer

For women who don’t want implants and are seeking a relatively small increase in breast size, we offer fat transfer breast enhancement. This approach uses liposuction to harvest fat from another part of your body — typically the abdomen, flanks, back or thighs. I take this fat, purify it, and then inject it into your breasts to achieve your desired appearance. This technique achieves results that look and feel extremely natural. An added bonus is that you get rid of fat where you don’t want it and we put it where you do!

Lift

Gravity is not your friend. If your breasts sag and/or nipples point downward, It might be time to talk with us about a breast lift This is a great way to restore your breasts’ youthful appearance by changing their shape and positions. To accomplish this, I remove excess skin, and reshape the tissue. As needed, I elevate the nipple and areola higher on the breast mound and tighten any loose skin. Just imagine! youthful, perky breasts without a push-up bra!

Please note that a lift doesn’t significantly change the size of your breasts. That’s why for many of my patients, we combine a breast lift with breast augmentation.

And more breast enhancement surgeries

You may not want augmentation but are not happy with your breasts. It’s okay. We have options for you, too.

  • Revision surgery: You had surgery to give you the size and shape that’s right for you, but you may not be satisfied with your initial results. Maybe time or other factors have created changes leaving you less than thrilled. That’s where revision surgery comes in. This customized approach can improve your initial results, achieve better symmetry, repair capsular contracture, and fix other unsatisfactory issues. It’s okay to come to me when you had surgery elsewhere. That happens often when women were unsatisfied with their results from a U.S. or even foreign surgeon. No judgment here; just solutions!
  • Correct Asymmetry: Are you breasts unequal size or shape? Correcting asymmetry is another way to give you the silhouette you want.

Which is right for you?

So many options, it may be overwhelming. It’s important to understand these options and choose what’s right for you. That’s why we recommend you schedule your confidential consultation. Contact my patient coordinators at info@driteld.com or call us at 312.757.4505.
