The breasts are the most distinguishing outer feature of the female anatomy, and issues with their size, shape or asymmetry can cause women to feel distressed or dissatisfied. Fortunately, there are a number of options for breast enhancement available that can correct these concerns and give women greater confidence in their bodies. With a variety of methods to choose from, women can select the surgical procedure that will best meet their needs and their aesthetic goals.
Dr Teston is a seasoned plastic surgeon with more than 24 years of experience in breast enhancement surgeries. She approaches all of these procedures with a woman’s unique perspective in mind, listening carefully to their concerns so that she can provide the best possible outcome for each patient. As no two breasts are alike, each surgery has to be carefully tailored to the proportions and desired results of each woman that visits her office.
Dr Teston offers the following options for breast enhancement:
Breast augmentation is one of the most performed plastic surgery procedures in Australia, and for good reason. With a shorter recovery process than other enhancement options, breast augmentation can produce the curves you have always wanted but were not given by Mother Nature.
This procedure is performed by placing synthetic implants into the breast tissue, implants which come in an assortment of shapes and sizes designed to fit each body profile. In addition to adding fullness, augmentation can reduce any asymmetries between the breasts that make you feel self-conscious about your appearance.
For some women, small breasts are not the problem; in fact, it is just the opposite. Large, pendulous breasts cause more than cosmetic embarrassment – they can also be a literal pain in the neck as they place undue stress on the back and neck muscles. Women with disproportionately large breasts may suffer from chronic back pain, persistent headaches, and even skin rashes resulting from chafing underneath the breasts.
Dr Teston performs breast reduction using the short vertical incision technique that results in less visible scarring after surgery. Through this incision, she can remove excess tissue and skin, while creating a smaller, more attractive shape to the breast. This procedure may relieve those painful symptoms and boost your confidence at the same time.
In some cases, the size of the breasts may not be the primary issue. Instead, a woman may feel like sagging in her breasts has led to a deflated, aged look. Breast sagging is common after pregnancy and nursing, but can also occur as a part of the normal ageing process. In some cases, the nipples and areola can also begin to point downward, further exacerbating the appearance of drooping .
A breast lift surgically restores the breasts to their higher, more youthful position, and can also reposition the nipples and areola to create a natural, beautiful result. This procedure gives you a more attractive upper body contour, which will also improve your confidence in your appearance. Additionally, Dr Teston can perform a breast lift alone or in conjunction with breast augmentation or reduction to further enhance your results.
While a woman’s breasts naturally differ slightly in size or shape, the difference is not usually noticeable. When the asymmetry becomes more prominent, it can considerably affect a woman’s appearance and her self-confidence. In some cases, women might need to go to extra lengths to hide the imbalance with certain types of underwear or clothing.
Breast asymmetry can often be corrected surgically through an uplift, augmentation, reduction, or a combination of these procedures. Dr Teston is particularly interested in breast asymmetry correction because of the profound impact they can have on a woman’s body contour and overall quality of life. While these procedures are often more complex than other breast enhancement surgeries, Dr Teston’s ample experience ensures you will receive the highest level of care and the best possible results.
A breast cancer diagnosis is one of the most frightening things a woman will ever experience. That news is typically followed by treatment to eradicate the malignancy – and often the breast at the same time. For women that have undergone a mastectomy or radical lumpectomy, breast reconstruction can help to restore their feminine appearance, their self-confidence, and their ability to move forward with their lives after cancer.
There are many options for breast reconstruction, including using synthetic implants and tissue flaps from your own body to recreate the breasts. Dr Teston will work both with you and your medical team to ensure your reconstruction surgery is safe, conducive to your cancer treatment, and brings you the results you are hoping to achieve.
Inverted nipples are an uncommon problem that occurs when the nipples turn inward instead of outward. While not a serious medical problem, the cosmetic concern can make a women self-conscious about her appearance, particularly during intimacy. For women with the most pronounced inversion, surgery is usually necessary to correct the problem and provide long-lasting results.
Surgery for inverted nipples is minimally invasive and can be performed as a day surgery in most cases. Recovery after inverted nipple correction is relatively short, and there is a good chance the positive results from the procedure will be permanent.
Women are not the only ones seeking breast procedures today. Men that have gynaecomastia (or enlarged male breasts) may also choose to undergo surgery to remove the excess breast tissue and create a more masculine chest contour. This procedure can have a major impact on a man’s self-esteem and his quality of life overall.
Gynaecomastia treatment can be performed one of two ways. For men with minimal tissue to remove, liposuction may be able to produce satisfactory results. When there is more correction required, surgical excision of the tissue and loose skin can offer a more dramatic change to the upper body profile.
