Am I A Candidate for Breast Correction?

There are several conditions and concerns that can be effectively corrected through a breast correction procedure by Dr. Spiegel, including:

  • Hypomastia: A condition categorized as the post-pubertal underdevelopment of breast tissue.
  • Congenital defects: A number of congenital defects can become noticeable during the development phase of a woman's breasts. These can cause differences in the shape, position, and size of one or both breasts.
  • Asymmetrical breasts: This occurs when one of the breasts is different in shape, size, and location from the other, causing an imbalance.

Prior to creating your treatment plan, Dr. Spiegel will evaluate your medical history and have a thorough consultation with you. Additionally, she will conduct a physical exam, take photographs, discuss your goals and concerns, and talk with you about your correction options. Your treatment options could vary, depending on your lifestyle, activity level, medical status, body type, and expectations.

Breast Correction Treatment Options

Dr. Spiegel will curate your specialized surgical treatment plan based on the degree of difference between the size and shape of your breasts. Additionally, she will take other factors into account, including your body type, age, and skin condition. Some of the techniques and procedures that could be included in your procedure plan are: 

  • Breast augmentation: This procedure includes the placement of an implant in one or both breasts to increase their size, create symmetry, and reposition them. This technique may be especially beneficial for women with breast asymmetry in order to equalize both breasts. Additionally, it can be used to create the appearance of larger breasts for patients with hypomastia or a congenital defect. 
  • Breast reduction: Breast reduction may be ideal for patients who have breast asymmetry and are wanting to match the larger breast to the smaller one. Based on the difference in size and nipple position, this could be performed along with a breast lift on one or both of the breasts.
  • Breast lift: A breast lift technique is usually performed in combination with either a breast reduction or breast augmentation to ensure optimal balance. This procedure lifts and tightens the breasts in addition to repositioning the nipple to fit the new breast height. 
  • Fat grafting: Similar to a breast augmentation procedure, fat grafting helps to increase the volume of the breasts. However, instead of using an implant, fat grafting works by taking fat from an area of the body and injecting it into the breasts. Since fat injections and the survival rate of transplanted cells can be unpredictable, this technique may not be ideal for every patient.

Your breast correction procedure could include one or a combination of these procedures, depending on your concerns and goals. In your consultation, Dr. Spiegel will carefully evaluate the current condition of your breasts and your desired outcome to create a treatment plan that is best for you.
