Types of Breast Surgery
At Mitts Plastic Surgery, we offer several types of breast surgery to accommodate the various cosmetic and health-related needs of our patients. Dr. Mitts understands that no two women are exactly alike, which is why he works with each patient individually to determine her surgical goals and create an appropriate treatment plan. The breast surgery options available at his Bakersfield practice include:
Dr. Mitts offers silicone and saline breast implants to patients who wish to enhance the size of their breasts. Both silicone and saline breast implants provide an aesthetically pleasing and long-lasting result. The type of breast implant that a patient receives will depend on a number of factors, including her medical history and cosmetic goals, as well as Dr. Mitts’ recommendations. By creating an attractive, well-balanced silhouette, breast implants can help patients appear more youthful and feel more confident.
During a pre-surgical consultation, Dr. Mitts discusses the different options associated with breast implant surgery, including the size and shape of the implants, the materials used, and surgical techniques.
Events such as aging, pregnancy, and significant weight fluctuation can take a toll on the appearance of the breasts. A breast lift raises and reshapes the breasts to create an attractive, youthful figure. This procedure can be performed on its own, or in conjunction with breast implant placement. As an experienced cosmetic surgeon, Dr. Mitts is able to perform breast lift surgery using several techniques, and can discuss which surgical options are best suited to your particular case during a consultation. Ultimately, a breast lift can increase a woman’s confidence, improve her figure, and help her appear younger.
Breast reconstruction following mastectomy can help women regain their sense of self after breast cancer. Dr. Mitts and his team are experts in several reconstructive techniques including latissimus flap, TRAM flap, and implant reconstruction. Each of these procedures offers its own unique set of benefits, and can effectively rebuild a woman’s breast and restore her confidence. Dr. Mitts works closely with the patient’s breast cancer surgeon to devise the safest, most efficient treatment plan possible.
This collaboration also gives Dr. Mitts the opportunity to perform implant reconstruction immediately after mastectomy, should the patient choose. In addition, Dr. Mitts is able to perform nipple reconstruction, a finishing touch to breast reconstruction that significantly contributes to creating a natural-looking result.
Breast reduction surgery removes excess skin, fat, and tissue from the breast area in an effort to create a well-proportioned figure for female patients. When the breasts are particularly large, women can often experience discomfort, poor posture, and diminished self-esteem. By reducing the size of the breasts, Dr. Mitts can completely transform a patient’s figure, alleviate daily aches and pains, and enhance her self-confidence. The results of breast reduction surgery often mimic a breast lift, helping patients appear more youthful, as well. Because oversized breasts sometimes lead to health problems, the cost of the breast reduction procedure may be at least partially covered by insurance.
