Dr. Ravi has come to know what women want most out of cosmetic breast enhancement, including a short recovery and natural-looking results.
Breast augmentation is the most popular cosmetic surgery performed each year to add volume and projection to the breasts to overall improve proportions. Using either FDA-approved saline or silicone breast implants to ensure natural-looking, long-lasting results. Asymmetry and tuberous breasts can also be corrected with breast augmentation. Today’s breast implants come in a wide variety of shapes, sizes, and projection. When combined with Dr. Ravi’s scientific breast measurement technique, the procedure is customized to every individual. Dr. Ravi’s meticulous surgical details allow him to perform every surgery safely and with the smallest, most hidden incisions needed. This outpatient surgery takes approximately one hour to perform. With an easy recovery, most women are back to work and routine activities in less than three days.
Breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, the breast lift procedure is used to lift sagging breasts to a higher, more perky position. With age, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and weight fluctuations, skin can lose its elasticity, causing the breasts to droop and lose their shape. During the breast lift procedure, Dr. Ravi will remove the extra, stretched skin at the breasts. He repositions the nipples to better match the breast shape and can reduce areolar size as needed. Although a breast lift does not change the fullness of the chest, the technique offers dramatic improvements to a woman’s breast shape. If added volume is also desired, a breast lift can be combined with breast implants and is called an augmentation mastopexy. Dr. Ravi’s breast lift surgery takes about two to three hours to perform. Women can expect their recovery to take about a week.
Breast Implant Revision
Our bodies continue to change, even years after the initial surgery. Many women who previously had breast implants, breast lift or breast reduction surgery may be looking to improve their appearance once again. Some may find themselves unhappy with the results of a breast augmentation procedure. Although complications are rare, some women will struggle with capsular contracture, a ruptured implant, rippling, or breast asymmetry. More often, women will turn to breast revision surgery when the size or shape of their breasts no longer fit with her lifestyle or desired appearance. Dr. Ravi listens to your needs to create a personalized breast revision procedure, ensuring the safest and most desirable results. In general, the recovery is similar to breast augmentation and women are usually back at work in just a few days. In some cases, a breast revision may have a shorter recovery time with less discomfort if a breast pocket was created during the initial breast surgery.
Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation
For women looking for a subtle, more natural-looking breast size increase, many opt for a fat transfer breast augmentation. Along with an improvement in size and shape of your breasts, patients are thrilled with the overall body contouring. Using power-assisted liposuction, adipose tissue is first removed from a donor area, such as the abdomen or thighs. Dr. Ravi processes the fat via a sterile technique to purify and separate the fat cells. The healthy fat is then injected into multiple levels of the breasts as Dr. Ravi sculpts the chest to achieve the desired look. Since procedure uses your own fat, there is a smaller chance for post-op complications. Good candidates for a fat transfer breast augmentation include those who have adequate fat for liposuction, be happy with a small degree of augmentation, and understand the limitations of the procedure. Fat transfer can be combined with both a breast lift and breast implants.
Large, pendulous breasts can be heavy and painful. Over time, they can cause back, neck and shoulder problems, making physical activity uncomfortable. Breast reduction surgery is designed to remove excess skin and glandular tissue, bringing the chest down to a proportionate, comfortable size. Dr. Ravi’s signature internal-bra breast reduction technique provides a lift, as well as natural-looking, smaller breasts. This not only restores a woman’s health but also her confidence. The resultant scars vary based on need, but most will result in a thin scar that runs around the areola, vertically down the breast, and at times hidden at the breast crease. Women who choose to have Dr. Ravi perform their breast reduction are repeatedly among the happiest of our cosmetic surgery patients.
