The placement of breast implants improves the volume, shape and symmetry of natural breasts. Breast implants range in size, filler material, shape and texture. Dr. Berardi will consult with you to determine the kind of look and feel you desire and help you select the type of implants to achieve your goals.
Breast Augmentation with Mastopexy
Breast augmentation with mastopexy, also known as a breast lift, is a popular cosmetic surgery procedure for women who want to achieve their ideal breast size, shape, and symmetry. For women who feel that a breast augmentation alone may not help them achieve their desired results, a breast augmentation with mastopexy may be the perfect procedure.
Many women feel self-conscious of breasts that have lost their perky quality and sag or droop downward. Breast lift restores the breasts to a higher and more youthful position on the chest. Breast lift will not affect the size of the breasts, but the procedure may be combined with breast augmentation or breast reduction to create bigger or smaller breasts.
Large, heavy breasts can take a toll on both your body and your mind. Pendulous breasts put pressure on the back, neck and shoulders, and can cause feelings of shame or embarrassment in social situations. Breast reduction removes a significant amount of weight and heft and reshapes the breast mound to give it proper proportion.
For many women who have lost their breasts to cancer, reconstructing them is part of the healing process. Dr. Berardi offers several breast reconstruction options: using tissue expanders, breast implants or your own tissue. Breast reconstruction can be performed immediately following mastectomy or after you have healed from surgery.
Your body is just not the same after having a child. Your abdomen refuses to flatten and your breasts may sag. Having children is one of the great joys of life and it should not take away the body you deserve to have. The good news is that there are options!
