There are numerous reasons why women seek breast enhancement surgery: dissatisfaction with their naturally-given shape, problems arising from congenital abnormalities or a desire to revert the changes that have occurred due to ageing or life events. Pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuation or decreased skin elasticity can cause breasts to lose shape and firmness. Size and shape abnormalities can cause functional problems that may require treatment.
There are a number of procedures that can effectively address these issues, but in order to obtain the best results, treatment must be personalised for each woman, taking into account breast sensitivity, functionality and progressive tissue development, body shape and ultimately her desire.
Precise measurement of the breasts, detailed explanations of treatment options and their advantages and shortcomings, as well as goals and expected outcomes must be covered in full before proceeding into treatments.
Dr. Shahram employs a precise and scientific approach to all breast surgeries, using only methods that have proven their value in clinical studies worldwide. He approaches less complicated breast augmentations with the same level of individual attention and consideration as he does more advanced procedures.
Breast augmentation can give women with small or unevenly-sized breasts a fuller, firmer, better-proportioned appearance through the placement of implants. There are a number of procedures and types of incisions that can be used to perform breast surgery, as well as a range of cohesive-gel implants of varying shapes, sizes and levels of firmness from which to choose.
In Dr. Shahram’s experience, anatomical or recently Ergonomix implants will provide the best results for women seeking natural-looking and feeling breast enhancement as they can be used to customise breast shape as well as volume. The extensive number of shapes and sizes manufactured offers opportunities for individualisation to an extent that is beyond what can be obtained with traditional round implants.
Fat transfer to the breast
Autologous fat transfer to the breast is a specialised treatment to restore volume and enhance breast contours, create a softer fuller cleavage, or to correct asymmetric and constricted breasts. Transplantation of patient’s own fat cells can be used either as a stand-alone procedure or in combination with anatomical breast implants to further improve the aesthetic outcome of a breast augmentation.
Breasts often lose shape and firmness over time. A breast lift, or mastopexy, is performed in order to lift sagging breasts and restore youthful shapeliness, as well as to correct asymmetries. For women requiring only a minor to moderate lift, Dr. Shahram recommends ‘the minimal scar breast lift’. This technique delivers a long-lasting lift and does not affect breastfeeding capability or nipple sensitivity.
Breast reduction surgery, or reduction mammaplasty, provides relief from symptoms caused by large and heavy breasts. Excess glandular tissue, fat and skin are removed, and the breasts are shaped and lifted to be smaller in proportion to the body. The results of breast reduction surgery are long-lasting and should help relieve the physical limitations experienced prior to surgery.
