Breast Augmentation – 375cc Smooth, Round, Submuscular, Saline

Breast Augmentation or breast enhancement is a procedure that enlarges the breasts with the use of saline (salt water) or silicone (FDA approved) breast implants. There are many different techniques and approaches for breast augmentation. Sarasota plastic surgeon Dr. Adamson uses techniques that are time proven to be safe and effective and create beautiful, predictable results. While under general anesthesia in the surgery center, Dr. Adamson uses a mini-incision approach through the crease below the breast (inframammary crease). This approach has many advantages over other incision techniques. This is the shortest route to lift the pectoralis muscle, which allows Dr. Adamson to have very precise control over the placement of the breast implant under the muscle. The implant pocket under the muscle is precisely shaped to create beautiful breast aesthetics. Smooth shelled, round breast implants create a very soft, natural feel. The incisions are closed with internal, dissolving sutures to provide optimum healing. The procedure is performed as an outpatient in the accredited surgery center under general anesthesia performed by the anesthesia team. It is usually recommended to take 1 week off of work to recover, depending on your occupation.

Mastopexy

Childbearing, gravity, genetics and time can create sagging of a woman’s breasts. A mastopexy is a procedure that lifts, tightens and shapes sagging breasts. There are several different techniques that can be used to lift breasts, but the most common and effective approach is the anchor shaped pattern. Dr. Adamson will tailor your procedure based on your anatomy and goals. The procedure is performed as an outpatient in the accredited surgery center under general anesthesia performed by the anesthesia team. It is usually recommended to take 1-2 weeks off of work to recover, depending upon your occupation.

In addition to sagging of the breasts after childbearing, breast feeding and weight loss, many women also experience a loss of fullness of the breasts. These women benefit from the addition of a breast implant during the breast lift (mastopexy) procedure. During the breast lift procedure, the saline or silicone breast implant is placed under the muscle and the breast is then re-shaped, lifted and tightened. The breast implant creates the desired fullness of the breasts. The procedure is performed as an outpatient in the accredited surgery center under general anesthesia performed by the anesthesia team. It is usually recommended to take 1-2 weeks off of work to recover, depending upon your occupation.

Breast Augmentation and Adamson Internal Breast Lift – 375cc Smooth, Round, Saline.

The Adamson Internal Breast Lift is a new procedure developed and perfected by Dr. Adamson. It is ideally suited for women with small, sagging breasts, which are very common after breast feeding, weight loss and aging. The sagging breast is elevated, lifted and augmented internally through a small (4-5cm) incision underneath the breast, thus avoiding the external scars on the breasts as with older breast lift techniques.

Proper repositioning of the breast is very important in breast augmentation. Proper breast aesthetics of the sagging breast cannot be achieved unless the breast is somehow lifted and properly repositioned, either internally or externally. If an implant is placed behind the muscle (as it usually should be) without lifting the breast, the outcome is usually unfavorable and referred to as a “double bubble” deformity. Alternatively if the implant is placed above the muscle under the sagging breast the implant will usually add weight to the breast and create additional sagging called a “rock in a sock” deformity – also an unfavorable outcome.

The Adamson Internal Breast Lift is ideally suited to those women with some sagging of the breasts, who desire breast augmentation, but would like to avoid the additional external scars of the standard breast lift techniques.

The procedure is performed as an outpatient in the accredited surgery center under general anesthesia performed by the anesthesia team. It is usually recommended to take 1 week off of work to recover, depending upon your occupation.

Breast Reduction / Breast Lift

Large breasts can create discomfort, back and neck pain, decreased physical activity and wardrobe problems. Breast reduction or reduction mammaplasty is the ideal technique for women whose breasts are too large. The incision pattern is similar to that of a breast lift - anchor shaped. In addition to reducing the size and weight of the breast, the breast can also be lifted, tightened and shaped. The procedure is performed as an outpatient in the accredited surgery center under general anesthesia performed by the anesthesia team. It is usually recommended to take 1 week off of work to recover, depending upon your occupation.

Gynecomastia – Male Chest Reduction

Gynecomastia is a relatively common and easily treated enlargement of the male chest. The surgical treatment used depends on the severity of the condition. Most commonly the treatment involves liposuction of the chest as well as direct excision of the breast bud behind the nipple through a small incision below the areola. In most cases the scars are almost imperceptible. The procedure is performed as an outpatient in the accredited surgery center under general anesthesia performed by the anesthesia team. It is usually recommended to take 1-2 weeks off of work to recover, depending upon your occupation.
 

Inverted Nipple Repair

Inverted Nipple Repair, Oblique View

Inverted nipples are usually caused by shortened milk ducts tethering the nipple inward. If the inverted nipple is a new condition breast cancer must be ruled out as the cause.

The condition is easily corrected in Dr. Adamson’s office under local anesthesia by releasing the shortened ducts through a very small incision below the nipple. The procedure can affect the ability to breast feed. Downtime is minimal to none.

Nipple Augmentation

Under local anesthesia in Dr. Adamson’s office the nipples are injected with filler materials such as Restylane, Juvederm, Radiance, Radiesse or Fat Grafts to achieve more prominent nipples. Minimal to no downtime.

Implant ruptures, implant asymmetry or malposition, capsular contractures (hardening of the scar tissue around the breast implants) and other implant related problems require special attention to detail to be properly treated. It is helpful if you bring your operative report and the implant information to your consultation with Dr. Adamson in order to make the most accurate and detailed plan for your aesthetic revision.
