VS Hospitals, Center for Advanced Surgeries at Kilpauk offers a complete range of facial rejuvenation and body contouring procedures using the techniques proven to be most successful.
It is extremely common for women to be dissatisfied with the size and shape of their breasts. Breast Augmentation (also known as Breast Enlargement, Augmentation Mammoplasty, Breast Implant Surgery) involves placing an artificial implant into the breast in order to increase the breast size and to produce a degree of lift where necessary. Breast Augmentation is by far the most popular procedure requested by women.
Modern implants have come a long way since their original inception. Modern implants are extremely safe, and you will be surprised at how incredibly strong they are. You will be able to see, feel, and even try on our recommended implants during an initial consultation with us.
Breast Augmentation is usually performed under general anaesthesia. However, a small number of surgeons prefer the use of local anaesthesia with sedation. Most patients are operated as a daycase. If drains are used, then the operation may be performed with an overnight stay.
Breast Reduction & Breast Lift
Women with very large breasts may experience a variety of medical problems caused by the excessive weight. The most common of these include back and neck pain, posture problems, skin irritation and rashes under the breasts. Bra straps may leave indentations in their shoulders. Occasionally, even skeletal deformities and breathing problems can occur.
Large breasts can make women feel extremely self-conscious. Breast reduction removes fat, glandular tissue, and skin from the breasts, making smaller, lighter and better-shaped breasts which are in proportion with the rest of the body. It is usually performed after the breasts are fully developed, although occasionally it is necessary for young patients (14-16 years old) who have very large breasts (EE/F cup or larger).
Breast reduction surgery is a common plastic surgery procedure that significantly improves the symptoms from large breasts, and has a high degree of patient satisfaction.
A breast lift raises and firms the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour. Sometimes the areola becomes enlarged over time, and a breast lift will reduce this as well.
Breast Reconstruction after Cancer
The goal of breast reconstruction is to restore the breast(s) to near normal shape, appearance, symmetry and size following mastectomy, lumpectomy, or other trauma. It may be a good option for you if you have realistic goals for restoring your breast/body image. Breast reconstruction typically involves several procedures performed in stages, and can either begin at the time of mastectomy or be delayed until a later date.
In making one of the most personal choices, breast cancer patients considering breast reconstruction should know that they have a voice and a choice.
Asymmetrical, Tubular and Accessory Breasts
Breast Asymmetry refers to a noticeable difference in the appearance of breast size or shape when comparing one breast to the other. This can also include the position of the nipple. Asymmetry may occur due to underdevelopment or overdevelopment of one breast(s).
Tubular Breasts, as the name suggests the breast(s) are like a “tube” and shaped like a narrow cone with a small, constricted base, tubular skin envelope and a prominent large nipple and areola. Tubular breasts are a fairly common developmental malformation that occurs during puberty and mainly affects young women. It can affect one breast (unilateral) or both breasts (bilateral). Early growth of breasts is limited and this results in unusually shaped, small, drooping and uneven breasts.
Accessory Breasts is normally present in the axilla. It is also found in the milk line along the axilla to the groin. This causes pain and can sometimes swell during the menstruation. This can cause discomfort and physical nuisance. Sometimes it causes embrasment. Surgery is the treatment in the form of liposuction or surgical excision.
