Plastic surgery is about choices. A woman may know that she desires breast enlargement, but she needs to know what choices she has.
How large does she want to be?
Should her implants be placed under the muscle?
Where will her incisions be?
What about changing previous implants?
Dr. Mirabile and Dr. Hsu are two of the busiest plastic surgeons in the area performing over 200 breast augmentation operations annually. Dr. Robert Mirabile, Dr. Vivian Hsu, and Dr. Taglienti are able to offer all of the choices available in today’s marketplace for breast enhancement, including implants of any shape or profile as well as silicone or saline breast implants. During your consultation, you will have the opportunity to explore a variety of possible breast sizes and a number of options regarding implant types. After meeting with Dr. Mirabile or Dr. Hsu, each patient is able to choose the breast size and shape of her dreams.
Over the years, factors such as pregnancy, nursing, and the force of gravity take their toll on a woman’s breasts. As the skin loses its elasticity, the breasts often lose their shape and firmness and begin to sag. A Breast lift, or Mastopexy, is a surgical procedure that raises and reshapes sagging breasts. Although no surgery can permanently stop the effects of gravity, a Mastopexy will recreate youthful breasts as well as possibly reducing the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple. If your breasts are small or have lost volume and feel deflated, Dr. Robert Mirabile, Dr. Vivian Hsu, and Dr. Taglienti may suggest inserting breast implants in conjunction with a breast lift. A breast lift with implants will increase both breast size and firmness.
For patients who have been recently diagnosed with breast cancer, or for patients who have previously been treated, Dr. Hsu provides surgical options for breast reconstruction. With her extensive experience in both breast reconstruction and breast cosmetic surgery, Dr. Hsu will review your options with you at your consultation, whether you are planning for mastectomy or breast conservation therapy. Working closely with breast surgeons at Einstein Medical Center Montgomery and Suburban Community Hospital, Dr. Hsu will discuss various types of tissue expander reconstruction, breast implant reconstruction, and tissue-based reconstruction with you and help you make the best decision for you.
Breast reduction, technically known as reduction mammoplasty, is designed for women with large breasts. The procedure removes fat, glandular tissue, and skin from the breasts, making them smaller, lighter, and firmer. It can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple. The goal is to give a woman smaller, better-shaped breasts in proportion with the rest of her body.
Patients who have had prior breast procedures may seek further improvement, particularly after having had implants for many years or after having life changes, such as pregnancy and menopause. As your body changes, your results may change with time, and it is worth exploring your options if you are interested in further improvement.
