Techniques of breast augmentation provided by Orange County, CA area plastic surgeon
Many patients in the Orange County, CA area visit The Institute of Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery to ask Dr. Thuan Nguyen about the ways in which they can obtain firmer, larger, lifted breasts. Women who want to improve the contours of the body and achieve a more attractive profile are often introduced to the idea of undergoing breast augmentation.
Breast augmentation is done to enlarge the breasts. It can include lifting and firming them as well for natural-looking results through plastic surgery. When women come to our practice seeking changes to their breasts, they may learn about the benefits of breast augmentation and learn how it can improve self-confidence. Many women seek this procedure due to pregnancy and breastfeeding, weight changes, or aging. Reshaping the breasts can allow women to feel more beautiful and confident after changes have occurred to their body over time.
There are three primary techniques used during breast augmentation at The Institute of Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery including peri areolar, lollypop, and the T lift.
Per iareolar Lift
This method of lifting and augmenting the breasts is done when there is minimal sagging. Dr. Thuan Nguyen cuts around the nipple area (known as the areola) and removes excess skin. During this time, he can also reposition the nipple for an overall lift appearance in addition to tightening and firming the area.
During the "lollipop lift," an incision is made not only around the areola but also down the bottom of the breast. This option is commonly done for moderate lifts and it allows the doctor to elevate the positioning of the nipple area as well.
The T Lift is done for moderate to significant augmentation and it involves incisions around the areola, down the breast, and along the inframammary fold. This is often the chosen technique when patients are having breast implants placed to increase breast size while also lifting areas where sagging may have occurred.
At The Institute of Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery, patients in and around the Orange County, CA area can improve the appearance of their body while also addressing their self-esteem and confidence.
