Breast Surgeries You May Not Know Of By Joseph M. Brown, MD, FACS on October 03, 2018

Sure, we’ve all heard of a ‘boob job’ or breast implant surgery. But there are many options for breast surgery—including nipple surgery and male breast reduction-- that you may not know about yet.

Nipple Surgery

There are a few different reasons to get nipple surgery. These include:
  • Abnormally large nipples or areolae
  • Absence of nipples due to a genetic abnormality
  • Removal of nipples from breast cancer treatment
  • Nipples that are long, asymmetric, or inverted
  • Areolae that are misshapen, wide, or asymmetric
If you are looking for a plastic surgery Tampa, you will find that Dr. Brown at Tampa Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery is highly experienced in correcting nipple deformities – including complete reconstruction.

Male Breast Reduction

Gynecomastia (enlarged male breasts) is a rarely talked about but common enough condition, affecting “an estimated 40-60% of men. Furthermore, it may affect only one breast or more.” Sometimes it can be caused by a drug or medical condition; in the vast majority of cases, however, there is no known cause.

Gynecomastia can be quite an embarrassing condition for men to deal with, especially at times when they must expose their chests—such as swimming or being intimate with a partner. A male breast reduction surgery can reshape the male breast to a more masculine appearance. The result is “a firmer, flatter, and improved chest contour.”

Natural Breast Augmentation

Some women desire larger breasts but do not like the look of implants. For these women, a natural breast augmentation procedure is available, in which fat from another part of the body is grafted and transferred into the breasts. “Transferring fat from one area of your body to your breasts can be a safe and effective way of increasing the volume of the breast while avoiding the use of a breast implant.”

Breast Reduction

A breast reduction (reduction mammoplasty) can be a great help to women who, due to their large breast size, “suffer from back and neck pain, skin irritations, and are usually limited in doing the things they want such as performing specific exercises or wearing certain pieces of clothing.” Cosmetic breast surgeries at Tampa Aesthetic & Plastic Surgery under the care of Dr. Brown removes excess fat, glandular tissue, and skin from the breasts. The result is smaller, lighter, and firmer breasts – and relief from the problems patients complain about when they request the surgery. Breast reduction surgery can also reduce the size of the areola (the skin surrounding the nipple.)

Breast Revision

Breast revision surgery corrects secondary deformities from previous breast augmentation surgeries. “Breast revision surgery can be very complex and requires a hybrid approach from the cosmetic and reconstructive mindset.” Dr. Brown knows that breast revision surgery requires extensive planning and detailed communication with you, the patient.

Breast Asymmetry

For breast asymmetry surgery, Dr. Brown focuses on current and future safety as well as choosing the smallest possible breast implant to bring your body into balance.

To obtain optimal results, various techniques may be used. These include:

Remember that each procedure or combination of procedures can be customized to each breast to achieve a perfectly proportioned look.
