Breast Surgery

Breast surgery includes cosmetic enhancements like augmentation and lifts, as well as reconstructive options following mastectomy. By employing advanced surgical methods, it aims to meet individual aesthetic goals or restore form, offering customized results that contribute to personal confidence and comfort.

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is a cosmetic surgery aimed at enhancing breast size and shape. Many women opt for this procedure to add volume to their breasts, either for cosmetic purposes or to address volume loss following pregnancy or substantial weight reduction.
 

THE PROCEDURE

  • Initial consultation: the first meeting with Dr. Carmelo Crisafulli is where the patient shares her aesthetic desires and expectations in depth.

  • Implant selection: Together with Dr. Carmelo, the patient selects the breast implants' size, shape, and type that best fit her anatomical needs and aesthetic objectives. He may use templates or trial prostheses to demonstrate potential outcomes and assist in choosing the ideal implants. Discussions also cover possible incision sites and implant placements.

  • Surgery: Performed under general anesthesia, the breast augmentation procedure involves the surgeon making an incision, placing the chosen implant with a "no-touch" technique, and adjusting its position for the desired appearance.

  • Post-operative care: Following the surgery, the patient might encounter swelling, bruising, and discomfort. Wearing a compression garment is advised to aid healing and reduce swelling.

  • Post-operative check-ups: Follow-up visits are arranged to assess healing progress, fine-tune care plans, and ensure the patient's optimal recovery.

  • Long-term recovery: Adhering to the surgeon's advice on activity limitations, caring for incisions, and attending regular check-ups is crucial for a successful long-term recovery.
     

Breast augmentation is a widely performed surgery, yet having thorough discussions with a competent plastic surgeon is vital to making informed choices and attaining pleasing outcomes.

Breast Reduction

Breast reduction is a cosmetic surgery aimed at decreasing the breasts' size and weight by removing surplus breast tissue, fat, and skin. Many women opt for this surgery to alleviate physical or psychological issues stemming from having excessively large breasts, including back, neck, or shoulder discomfort, skin irritation beneath the breasts, or a diminished quality of life due to disproportionate breasts.

THE PROCEDURE

  • Initial consultation: In the initial meeting with Dr. Carmelo, the patient outlines her reasons for seeking a breast reduction and shares her expectations and objectives. The surgeon assesses the patient's overall health and medical background.

  • Surgical Planning: The patient and Dr. Carmelo collaboratively decide on the preferred size and shape post-reduction. They also explore various surgical methods and discuss potential incision locations.

  • Surgery: Typically conducted under general anesthesia, this operation involves making cuts to eliminate excess breast tissue, reshaping the breasts, and repositioning the nipple and areola to enhance aesthetic appeal.

  • Post-operative care: Following the surgery, patients can expect some swelling, bruising, and discomfort. Wearing a compression garment is advised to support the healing process.

  • Post-operative check-ups: These appointments are crucial for assessing the healing progress, tweaking care plans, and ensuring the patient is on track for a smooth recovery.

 

 Breast reduction surgery can significantly alleviate physical discomfort and enhance the quality of life for many women. Engaging in a comprehensive discussion with a competent plastic surgeon is key to understanding the procedure's benefits, risks, and expected outcomes.

Breast Ptosis

Ptosis

Breast ptosis describes the drooping or slackening of the breasts, often identified by the nipple's position being lower than the breast crease. This condition is commonly known as "drooping breasts" or "saggy breasts."

Several factors can lead to breast ptosis, such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, aging, substantial weight reduction, and hereditary influences.

THE PROCEDURE

Addressing breast ptosis might include the insertion of implants, a mastopexy (breast lift), or a combination of both. Fat transfer (lipofilling) is another option.

The goal of this surgical intervention is to elevate and firm up the breasts by excising surplus skin, recontouring the breast tissue, and repositioning the nipple to a more visually appealing location.

The choice to proceed with surgery is based on an individual's personal aesthetic desires, their satisfaction with their breast's appearance, and the guidance and suggestions from a certified plastic surgeon.

gynecomastia

Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia is a condition marked by the overgrowth of breast tissue or fat in men, resulting in enlarged breasts that resemble female breasts.

This condition can manifest at any stage of life, from teenage years through to later adulthood, and may be triggered by numerous factors.

Typical reasons for gynecomastia include

  • Hormonal shifts: An imbalance where estrogen levels surpass testosterone can cause men to develop excess breast tissue.

  • Medication side effects: Certain drugs, including hormone therapies, steroids, and antidepressants, are known to induce gynecomastia.

  • Health issues: Conditions affecting the liver or kidneys, among others, can be linked with the development of gynecomastia.

  • Genetic influences: A predisposition passed through genes can also contribute to gynecomastia.
     

Addressing gynecomastia varies based on its root cause.

In some instances, lifestyle modifications, ceasing certain medications, or addressing health conditions may alleviate the condition.

Yet, for cases where gynecomastia remains, surgical intervention to remove excess breast tissue, known as breast reduction surgery, might be suggested to achieve a more traditionally masculine chest contour. This procedure often involves a discreet incision around the nipple or the removal of tissue via liposuction.

Individuals with concerns about gynecomastia are advised to seek professional medical advice for a proper diagnosis and tailored treatment plan.
