Over the past 16 years we have helped thousands of patients with breast augmentation, breast lift and fixed malposed or migrating breast implants without complications. Sometimes patients undergo cosmetic breast augmentation because they simply want better body balance. We are firm believers that form follows function and beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Our first and foremost objective is the creation of breasts that you envision yourself with.
Of all cosmetic procedures performed in medicine today, none provides more patient enthusiasm than breast augmentation. In all cases, the goal is a surgical result that appears natural and non-operated. The stereotypical “round” or “fake” look is completely avoidable in all women, provided that body proportions are respected. Shoulder size, chest wall width, cleavage proportion and native breast size all influence the final result. At the Carlotti Center for Cosmetic Surgery, Drs. Carlotti will discuss with you in detail the influence of these factors in the context of your desired result.
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 to raise and reshape sagging breasts–at least, for a time. (No surgery can permanently delay the effects of gravity.) A breast lift can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple. If your breasts are small or have lost volume–for example, after pregnancy–breast implants inserted in conjunction with mastopexy can increase both their firmness and their size.
We always proceed with the end in mind creating natural looking aesthetically pleasing breasts by improving shape, balance and proportion.
During your consultation, you will discuss your expectations, address any concerns and together we will design a plan to meet your goals. You will be educated on the advantages or disadvantages of various types of implants such as saline vs silicone and various gradations of profile and surface topography. You will be made aware of the different approaches used, the most common being inframammary (below the breast, in the crease), transaxillary (armpits…which has limitations with silicone), periareolar, and trans umbilical and which is the best for your specific case.
You will leave your consultation well-informed and all of your questions answered to your satisfaction before surgery. Your health and safety are of upmost importance to us and we go over your medical history in great detail during your consultation and order any pre-operative test needed to make sure we have a complete picture of your health status.
