The Breast Augmentation Breakdown
Maybe she’s born with it, and maybe she’s not! Most women can agree that their breasts are what make them feel womanly and more feminine. Breasts come in all shapes and sizes and for some women their natural breasts do not measure up to the vision that they have set in their mind, leaving them longing for improvement. Just because you are not naturally blessed with the breasts you desire does not mean that you can’t achieve the look you want through cosmetic procedures. More and more women are opting for breast augmentations to acquire beautiful, full and perky breasts to boost their self -esteem and feel like the ideal woman they envision themselves to be.
Many times deciding to have a breast augmentation is an easy decision, but choosing which procedure is best for you can be overwhelming. Dr. Vitolo specializes in working with his clients to develop a personalized approach in choosing the best option for enhancing the size and shape of your breasts, ensuring that you feel safe and comfortable throughout the entire process.
Listed below are the various options Dr. Vitolo offers to achieve your desired breast size and shape. His eye for beauty ensures that you will walk away from this experience feeling satisfied and confident as ever.
There are two types of breast implants to choose from: saline or silicone. Although both types of implants have shells made of silicone rubber material, the difference between the two is how they are filled and what they are filled with.
Dr. Vitolo’s scarless technique is used for saline implants that are easily inserted through the body through minimal incisions. The implant is inserted and then filled with a saltwater solution through a valve allowing the versatility of volume adjustments during and after surgery.
Silicone breast implants typically require larger incisions than saline implants, but with our new “Gummy Bear” silicone- shaped implants your augmentation gives you a natural look that has high satisfaction rates.
Dr. Vitolo will discuss the risks, benefits and costs of both types of implants to guide you in making the decision to best suite you.
Breasts can change drastically throughout the course of a woman’s life due to age, childbirth, weight loss or gain all which can stretch the skin and tissue of the breast leaving them to sag. With a breast lift, Dr. Vitolo removes excess skin and moves the tissue to a higher position giving your breasts a perkier, more firm look. Patients often combine a reduction or enlargement with a breast lift in order to achieve the ideal breast shape they desire.
Transumbilical Breast Enlargement
For a quicker and shorter recovery period than the traditional breast augmentation Dr. Vitolo offers a “Transumbilical Breast Enlargement” that is inserted through the belly button and causes minimal trauma to the tissues. A tunnel is made by what is called an introducer, under the breast tissue. All air from the implant is removed so that it becomes flat. The flattened implant is then rolled up tightly and slipped up the tunnel that has been made by the introducer until it lies in the pocket underneath the breast. The filler tube extends out through the incision in the navel. Using a special syringe device, the implant is filled with sterile saline solution. As the implant is filled, it unrolls and creates a pocket for itself that is the exact size desired.
Having oversized breasts can cause much discomfort or pain and create many issues for a woman when shopping for clothes and feeling confident about herself. Breast reductions remove excess fat and tissue shrinking your breasts to allow you to feel more comfortable with your body and eliminate any discomfort you may have.
Every woman’s needs and desires are different and Dr. Vitolo is committed to helping you find the best procedure for you.
