Breast Enhancement in Lexington, KY

Breasts! We all seem to have our preferences, whether we are thinking about our own body or our partner’s body. All of our preferences are, of course, subjective. There is no one perfect breast size, and tastes trend differently in different cultures and parts of the world as well.

Breast enhancement is a specialty of Lexington, Kentucky plastic surgeon Theo Gerstle, M.D. There are many ways to enhance the contour of a breast, including breast augmentation of a congenitally small breast with breast implants, reshaping large breasts with breast reduction, or rearranging the tissues of an aging breast to create a more youthful appearance with a breast lift. Another important note to remember is that breast surgery is also for men who suffer from gynecomastia, or the enlargement of male breast tissue. And of course, breast reconstruction can be a vital aid in healing the emotional and psychological scars that can result following breast cancer treatment.

Your search for an exceptional, experienced, and compassionate plastic surgeon in Lexington KY is over. Call us today and discover why so many men and women trust Lexington Plastic Surgery!

Breast Enhancement Surgery Options

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation, or breast implant surgery, is the procedure that adds volume, firmness to a sagging or undersized chest. Working with your natural frame, we want to bring your breasts into harmony with the rest of your figure. Not only will a larger cup size make you feel more confident and happy in your clothes, breasts that balance your hips and emphasize your waist will balance out your overall body symmetry and proportion.

While you will have implants of various shapes and sizes to choose from, Dr. Gerstle is an expert when it comes to breast augmentation and can aid greatly in ensuring that your choice will make you happy for many years to come. Choosing the right size and type of implant is the key to the longevity of the procedure. Too large, and in time your breasts will likely sag or stretch the supporting skin and tissues; too small and you may find that your breasts become hollowed out at the top in the years ahead.

Breast Lift

A breast lift is sometimes combined with breast augmentation with implants, but not always, and each has its specific purpose. While you may have retained the volume in your breasts that you desire, age, gravity, sun exposure, weight fluctuations, genetics, and pregnancy and breastfeeding can all contribute to a lack of buoyancy or a downward shift that has increased over time. Breast lift (or mastopexy) surgery can correct this issue to a great degree, removing excess skin, restoring the lost upward projection you once had, and even resizing the areola . A breast lift can help restore the youthful breasts you once had, while at the same time restoring your self-confidence, whether on the beach or in the boardroom.

Breast Reduction

No woman who has lived through years or even decades of sore breasts, unwanted attention, difficulty finding clothes that fit, and painful and restricted workouts has a sense of humor about being told that large breasts are “a good problem to have.” Women who feel that their breasts are too large just want relief, and that’s why breast reduction surgery is truly a godsend for so many.

Depending on the amount of tissue to be removed and other factors affecting the complexity of the surgery, you may undergo liposuction and/or surgical excision of fat to reduce your breast size. Part of the procedure may also include repositioning the nipple so that it sits higher on the breast. Recovery from this surgery can take several weeks, at which point you will be ready to slowly begin resuming your regular exercise and other active pursuits.

Breast Reconstruction

It can take time to adjust emotionally and psychologically following the trauma of a breast cancer diagnosis. We are here to support you through the journey of breast reconstruction, whether it begins at the same time as your mastectomy or in the months or years ahead. Breast reconstruction can help you adjust to a single or double mastectomy, reassuring you that your femininity is not lost and that you can still enjoy the look and feel of your body as you did previously.

Male Breast Reduction

No man wants to feel embarrassed or ashamed to go shirtless! Whether on the beach in the summer, on the basketball court, or cooking out for friends, having to cover up can be downright uncomfortable. For men who are dissatisfied with the look of their chest, there is no longer a reason to delay taking action. The methods for gynecomastia, or male breast reduction, have become simplified and refined, and are now more effective than ever. A straightforward case of removing some excess fat may be achievable by liposuction alone, while more complex cases may require removal of excess tissue that has become saggy and even areolar reduction. Regardless of the type of surgery that you and Dr. Gerstle decide on, you can be assured that a tighter, stronger, more masculine looking chest can be yours in short order.
