Surgery on the breast can help address many different issues which may arise at various stages of life. Dr Bernie can assist in achieving a more youthful breast, adjusting a concern with size or symmetry, or performing a revisionary procedure. Dr Bernie also offers all aspects of Reconstructive Breast Surgery.
Every woman’s decision to undergo breast surgery is unique and presents a personal decision. Dr Bernie will work with you through a personalised consultation to individually consider and address your needs and goals to create a tailored surgical plan with an optimal outcome goal.
Dr Bernie offers a wide range of breast procedures, the most common of which are listed below.
Breast Augmentation involves placing breast implants under breast tissue or chest muscle which can improve the size, shape and symmetry of your breasts.
A Breast Lift (Mastopexy) can correct sagging of the breast by raising and firming the breast through the removal of excess skin and the tightening of surrounding tissue. This procedure helps restore your youthful breast shape.
A Breast Augmentation together with a Breast Lift (Mastopexy) can help address both a deficiency in breast size and the sagging of the breast. This is a more complicated procedure which can significantly improve aesthetic appearance and may or may not be possible in one procedure.
Breast Reduction Mammaplasty aims to reduce the physical and emotional toll that can result from large breasts by removing excess breast tissue, recontouring the breast and repositioning the nipple whilst also lifting the breast simultaneously.
Whilst mild asymmetry is normal in all parts of our bodies, including minor size and shape differences in the breast, excessive asymmetry may be concerning. Improvement of asymmetry can be performed through various techniques depending on the cause and severity, most often being tailored to the specific concern you may have.
Previous breast procedures may require revision due to time, for the correction of a prior suboptimal result or due to a change of desired goal. Though these procedures are usually more complex, Dr Bernie is ready to help you with the careful consideration and selection of an individualised care plan to meet your goals.
Implants which have previously been inserted for a cosmetic or reconstructive operation may require or benefit from removal. This can be done alone or in combination with another procedure.
Breast reconstruction and reconstruction revision is a complex aspect of reconstructive surgery offered by Dr Bernie.
