    What You Need to Know About the Breast Reduction Procedure

    Last updated 1 year ago

    If your breasts are not in proper proportion with the rest of your body, you know firsthand how uncomfortable and even painful large breasts can be. Fortunately, new techniques in modern plastic surgery have made it possible for surgeons to successfully remove excess fat, tissue, and skin so you can achieve a comfortable breast size and regain your self-confidence. Here is a basic look at the details you should know about breast reduction surgery

    Variable Incisions

    After you have been administered general anesthesia, your plastic surgeon will make small incisions that follow the contour beneath your breast and around your nipple and areola. Your surgeon may rely on a circular pattern of incisions around the areola or elect to follow a keyhole or anchor-shaped pattern depending on the contours of your body and the preferred surgical technique. These incision lines will result in subtle but visible permanent scars that are easily concealed beneath a bra.

    Tissue Removal

    Once the incisions have been made, your surgeon will remove excess fat, tissue, and skin on the sides and bottom of your breasts. The nipple is repositioned and, if necessary, the areola is reduced by excising skin at its perimeter. The underlying breast tissue is reduced, shaped, and lifted to achieve the desired size and a more youthful appearance.

    Lasting Results

    After a breast reduction, your breast size will be noticeably smaller, but some inflammation may remain for a few weeks. Your self-confidence will continue to grow as your body heals and you adjust to your lighter, perkier breasts. As time progresses, any post-surgical swelling will disappear and your incision lines will fade. Be sure to follow-up with your plastic surgeon and follow his advice for an efficient, comfortable recovery.

    A Guide to the Chin and Cheek Implant Procedure

    Last updated 1 year ago

    When it comes to plastic surgery, the term “implants” tends to make us think of the implant used during breast augmentation procedures. However, implants may be also used to augment other areas of the body as well. Learn more by reading the following guide to the chin and cheek implant procedures. 

    Chin Implants

    Chin implants may be right for you if your chinbone does not sufficiently protrude past the jawline but rather blends into your neck, ultimately interfering with the balance and symmetry of your facial structure and creating the appearance of a weak chin. During the chin implant surgical procedure, your cosmetic surgeon will administer anesthesia before a small incision is made inside of your lower lip below the gum line, creating a pocket along the forward edge of the chin. A medical grade silicone implant will then be placed into the pocket before the incision is closed with absorbable sutures. The use of an inner-lip incision allows the surgical scar to remain easily concealed after the healing process is complete.

    Cheek Implants

    Cheek implants are often recommended for individuals whose cheeks are flat due to a congenital deformity, injury, or volume-loss caused by the natural aging process. As with the chin implant procedure, your surgeon will administer anesthesia before making an incision along the inside of the cheek above the upper gingival tissues. After forming a pocket in the deficient area, trial implants will be placed to prepare the skin and help your face adjust to the new contours. A solid silicone implant will be inserted later and the incisions closed with dissolvable stitches.

    Whether you are interested in chin implants, cheek implants, or a facelift, leading plastic surgeon Dr. R. Scott Yarish, M.D. is here to help.
