Your appearance can make a difference in how you feel, and many women who have had breast augmentation experience a boost in self-confidence. Some women have breast augmentation surgery to restore breast size, after massive weight loss, mastectomy, or due to asymmetrical breasts or small breasts. During the surgery, implants are placed in your breasts to increase fullness or symmetry.
Over time, the appearance of your breasts can change due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, fluctuations in weight and aging. If you are experiencing sagging breasts or the firmness and elasticity is lost, a breast augmentation with lift may be right for you. Also known as mastopexy-augmentation, the procedure involves enhancing the size and shape of the breasts while removing excess skin to prevent sagging at the same time. The one Dr. Plant chooses for you will be based on things like the shape and size of your breasts or how much your breasts have sagged.
There are several reasons a woman may want to have breast implant removal surgery. They are not lifelong devices and are recommended to be changed every 10 to 15 years. Whether you no longer want your current implants or do not want to worry about future implant exchanges, a breast implant removal surgery may be right for you. Dr. Plant will consult you on the procedure to determine the best treatment for you
Typically women choose breast implant revision because they’ve had cosmetic surgery and the results didn’t meet their expectations, or they want to switch from older saline implants to gummy bear breast implants. Depending on your needs, the type of procedure that Dr. Plant will use varies. Dr. Plant will determine the breast implant revision procedure that’s best for you during your consultation at his Toronto office.
Large breasts can affect your self-confidence and your lifestyle. If you are experiencing health issues related to large breasts like pain in the breasts, back pain, neck pain or shoulder pain, you may want to consider a breast reduction. During the surgery, Dr. Plant will remove excess tissue and skin, giving you smaller and firmer breasts.
Men who have extra tissue on their chest or sagging enlarged breasts may feel self-conscious with their shirts off. This condition, as known as Gynecomastia, can affect one or both the breasts. To correct this, Dr. Plant will remove excess breast tissue and sculpt the remaining tissue, so you can take your shirt off with confidence again.
