Using either saline or silicone breast implants, Dr. Shermak can increase your cup size, as well as lift and recontour your silhouette for a more feminine aesthetic. Breast augmentation is often performed as part of a mommy makeover, offering new moms the chance to regain their pre-pregnancy figure, feeling and looking their best. The procedure may also be a component of breast reconstruction after illness, injury or developmental issues. Dr. Shermak can help you sort through the myriad of sizes, shapes and textures of implant that will best fit your body and goals.
Breast augmentation with lift
For some clients, a change in breast size and shape is not enough to effect comprehensive changes to the chest area. In this case, a breast lift may also be required to combat breast sagging and breast asymmetry. The breast augmentation with lift procedure demands more surgical time and complexity, but is ideal for those wishing to reverse the unwanted effects of the aging process, significant weight loss, pregnancy and poor genetics. Breast lift with augmentation assures improved shape, fullness and cleavage.
Breast implant revision
There are a variety of reasons why one might become dissatisfied with the results of primary breast augmentation surgery. Sometimes it is due to surgical errors, sometimes it is due to unforeseen scarring issues, and sometimes the implants simply need to be replaced due to their age, or client preferences. Dr. Shermak is highly experienced at navigating this challenging area of revision breast surgery and delivers exceptional, natural-looking results.
The breast lift procedure can elevate sagging, droopy breasts to a more attractive, perky level, and may also reposition the nipples to a more youthful position. A breast lift is a popular and effective staple of any anti-aging surgical regime for making over the chest. It is often a valuable component in the ever-requested mommy makeover procedure. A breast lift may also be performed on one breast to match the other breast with asymmetries.
When a client has suffered the ordeal of breast cancer, reconstructive surgery can truly offer a new lease on life. Reconstructive options today are much more advanced relative to resources available even 5 years ago, so procedures available are the “latest generation,” particularly with implant-based reconstruction. Many women are undergoing “one and done” procedures. Revision procedures are often necessary for long term to improve upon results that may have been great over 10 years ago, but not now. Recontouring and reshaping the upper chest provides renewed self-confidence and cosmetic healing which is an excellent start on the path to deeper recovery.
For those women suffering from heavy, pendulous, disproportionately large breasts, everyday tasks and recreational activities may be a chore rather than a pleasure. Chafing, shoulder, neck and back aches and soreness, and even headaches, are just a few of the side effects of carrying the extra breast weight. A breast reduction excises superfluous breast tissue, reshaping the breasts for a more youthful, appealing aesthetic. Some women undergo one-sided reduction to match the opposite breast in cases of cancer or traumatic or developmental issues.
Congenital breast asymmetry
Sometimes we’re given unwanted physical traits such as asymmetrical breasts. Congenital breast asymmetry can be easily treated through plastic surgery, which restores balance and harmony to the chest while bolstering self-esteem. Procedures such as a breast lift, breast augmentation, and possibly a combination of these two, help in bringing breast aesthetics into normalcy, if not aesthetic excellence.
For those women who are unsure about undergoing breast augmentation with implants, the breast fat transfer procedure provides a viable, effective alternative. Fat cells are extracted from a donor site such as the waist, back, hips, thighs or abdomen, purified, and then injected into the breasts for natural enhancement of a more conservative degree. Secondary results in the fat donor area provided added satisfaction and outcome.
Male breast reduction (gynecomastia)
The male breast reduction procedure is performed to help masculinize and slenderize the chest, creating a more toned, streamlined physique. Suffering from gynecomastia can take a toll on one’s self-confidence, both personally and professionally, but the male breast reduction procedure can correct these issues, restoring a positive self-image with minimal and acceptable scar options.
