Breast enhancement surgery in Atlanta is an increasingly popular method for achieving a more appealing body contour. It can also have a positive psychological impact when used to address issues that cause patients to be uncomfortable with their proportions.
Breast augmentation, through the use of implants, enlarges the breasts. Women who were born with breasts that are too small for their frame or disproportionate in size can seek to increase the size of their breasts with saline implants. Women who have undergone a mastectomy or have had trauma to the chest area may also be candidates for breast augmentation.
Time, heredity, pregnancy and breastfeeding can all take a toll on the youthful appearance of the breasts. Due to factors like these, the breasts can sag and become elongated. To give them a more perky, youthful looking appearance, a breast lift can be performed. Breast lifts will not change the size of the breast, but can be performed in conjunction with a breast augmentation if that is the aim for the patient.
Gynecomastia is a condition in which localized fat and/or excessive glandular tissue is present in the male breast. It can cause self-consciousness and is sometimes even painful. Diet and exercise will not treat gynecomastia that has occurred for reasons other than obesity. Surgery is required for male breast reduction, either in the form of CoolSculpting, liposuction or excision, or a combination of the above. Breast enhancement procedures generally range from 1 to 3 hours, depending on the type being performed. General anesthesia or intravenous sedation is provided to patients for their optimal comfort during surgery. Recovery times may vary, with the majority of individuals being able to resume most normal activity and return to work within 1 to 2 weeks.
