Some women may suffer from problems in the shape of the breast, which could be on one side or on both sides. Breast deformity correction surgery is a procedure that restores symmetry, and corrects the size and shape of a woman’s breasts. Depending on the type of deformity, Prof Wilson does the surgery by removing skin or adding tissues to the breast. These might involve placing an implant, injecting fat, or transposing nearby muscle. Extra tissues behind the breast can correct its volume, restore symmetry and enhance its shape. There are many deformities, the most famous of which is the potato shaped breast, which is also called “Tubular Breast” . In this deformity, there is a big skin envelope, but too little and too breast tissue, with a patchy distribution. There is usually an abnormally large areola and retracted nipples.
Almost all women with breast deformities need surgery, not only as a cosmetic procedure, but also to restore the normal shape, size and symmetry of the breasts.
Due to the wide range of possible breast deformities, each one demands a corrective plan specifically tailored to address the issues in that particular breast deformity. Prof Wilson takes computer generated images of the breasts to accurately plan the corrective treatment. Dr Wilson’s corrective plan usually entails complex surgery that involves removal of misplaced breast tissue, restoring the normal appearance of the breast and restoring symmetry. It may include augmentation or reduction or correcting the size of the areola, and refashioning the skin envelope. In most cases, Prof Wilson attempts the correction all in one stage, while sometimes he has to perform it on multiple stages. Sometimes Dr Wilson inserts a silicone implant to enhance the volume of breast tissue. However, he does that simultaneously with other corrective procedures and not as a separate entity.
During the consultation, Prof Wilson will ask you about what is troubling you most about your breast shape and size. He will inquire about your desired breast size and shape. Dr. Wilson will examine your breasts and will consider such factors as the symmetry between both breasts, size and shape, and the quality of your skin. He will measure the placement of your nipples and areolas and shoot several images of your breasts in several views. The assistant will check whether you have a family history of breast cancer and about results of any mammograms. It is important to provide complete information.
Dr. Wilson will help you determine your appropriate breast size, shape, and plan the location of incisions to be as hidden as possible. If he decides that you need an implant, he will explain in detail the method of inserting and positioning your implant, and whether the implants will be placed on top of or underneath the chest muscle. Sometimes you might prefer fat injection, which is taken from your tummy or thighs. Although fat injection is safer, it might not always be sufficient to correct the deformity. When correcting problems with the areola and nipple, Prof Wilson will plan the incision so that any resulting scars will be as inconspicuous as possible.
Working through the incision, Dr. Wilson will gently treat the deformed lumpy breast tissue. He usually scores it, or sometimes even removes it. Then he will fit it in with the breast envelope to provide a smooth harmonious figure. If he decides on inserting an implant, he will lift your breast tissue and skin to create symmetrical pockets and will then insert the implants and fill them with saltwater. The surgery usually takes 2-5 hours to complete, depending on the complexity of the deformity. The assistant will use sutures to close the incisions, and might use tape which for greater support. The Registered Nurse will fit you with a surgical bra applied directly over your breasts to help with healing and to reduce swelling.
Being a major surgery, infection, seroma and hematoma occur at a slightly higher rate than with other breast surgeries. Restoring symmetry is usually a challenging ordeal, but with proper planning, this can be usually achieved with 90% accuracy. There is no scientific evidence that correction of deformities increases the risk of breast cancer.
Professor Wilson believes that affordable cost plastic surgery is the right of every individual. He will never allow financial restraints to prevent you from having a juvenile beautiful appearance. Many factors affect the cost of Breast Correction Surgery, including the extent of surgery, type of surgery, use of implant, concomitant areola and nipple deformities and other factors. After the consultation, the patient coordinator will offer you an affordable price quote.
