Breast Augmentation in Boca Raton
One of the most common questions that we often hear among women patients for breast augmentation is how the procedure might affect the shape, size, and look of their breasts. In some cases, patients opt to get this procedure hoping to address a cosmetic concern related to their nipples, while others look for a little enhancement for better body proportion.
Whichever your case may be, these four facts about breast augmentation and nipples should be able to give you a better idea of what you can expect after the cosmetic procedure.
A breast lift can change the shape of the areola
The areola is the darker pigmented area at the center of the breast. For some patients, asymmetrical or large areola is the cosmetic concern they want to address with the procedure.
While the augmentation alone doesn’t affect the appearance of the areola, adding a breast lift to the procedure can alter its size and shape.
Breast augmentation can resolve inverted nipple concern
Retracted or inverted nipples are usually genetic and can be present from birth, but they can also be due to an injury, trauma, or loss of breast volume. Undergoing a breast augmentation procedure, the plastic surgeon can correct this condition.
This is usually done by creating a small incision through which the surgeon can turn the nipple outward for a better appearance. This procedure can also be done on its own, without getting breast implants if you are not interested in adding volume to your breasts.
Just make sure to let your surgeon know if you wish to breastfeed after the surgery so he can take this into account when planning for your surgery.
Causes of Breast Volume Loss
As mentioned, one cause of inverted nipples is the loss of breast volume. A woman may experience loss of breast volume due to any of these reasons:
- Pregnancy and breastfeeding – most women who have undergone pregnancy and breastfeeding experience loss of breast volume, which can be corrected with breast implants.
- Aging – breasts naturally lose volume because of aging, causing the breasts to look droopy and saggy.
- Weight Loss – significant weight loss may reduce breast volume since the breasts are made primarily with fats.
If you wish to correct such breast condition, it’s possible to do it with breast augmentation surgery. Dr. Daniel Man is a board-certified plastic surgeon in Boca Raton who provides breast augmentation surgeries to patients in South
