Women may find themselves unsatisfied with their breasts for a variety of reasons. If you are looking to adjust your breast’s size or shape, whether larger or smaller, Dr. Chiu can help. Below you will find numerous procedures that Dr. Chiu offers to correct any breast-based issue you may need
Natural Breast Augmentation
A natural breast augmentation treatment uses your fat, taken from other areas of your body, to enhance the size and shape of your breast(s). This procedure gives you larger breasts without the risks or complications of breast implants. Natural breast augmentation also utilizes liposuction techniques, allowing for body contouring as part of the same operation. The recovery period for natural breast augmentation is usually shorter than breast augmentation with implants, lasting no more than four to six weeks. Your results should remain stable so long as your weight remains consistent. You may be interested in a natural breast augmentation if you desire enhanced breasts or more defined cleavage, but wish to avoid traditional breast implants.

Traditional breast augmentation uses implants to increase the size and reshape your breast contours. This procedure provides larger, firmer, and more perky breasts through silicone or saline implants. The recovery period usually lasts four to six weeks. Breast implants can last up to 10 or 20 years before they need to be replaced, though this may vary depending on the type of implant you choose. Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries performed around the world each year. If you are interested in increasing the size, shape, or contours of your breasts, breast augmentation with implants may be what you are looking for.

A breast lift procedure can change the shape, firmness, and projection of your breasts. It is performed to reduce breast sagging, leaving you with more perky, youthful-looking breasts. A breast lift can also reshape and reposition your areola and nipple to provide a perkier appearance. Most patients can return to work a week after surgery, with remaining side effects fading after around four weeks. The results of a breast lift are permanent; however, the surgery cannot prevent further aging and sagging of breasts. Results tend to last many years, though this may vary dramatically depending on lifestyle factors and weight changes. If you are looking to adjust your breasts’ shape to reduce sagging, a breast lift may be what you are looking for.

A breast reduction procedure reduces the volume of the breasts and can also resize the areola. This procedure can provide you with smaller breasts that better fit your frame, and treat conditions caused by overly large breasts, such as back or shoulder pain. Most women return to work within one to two weeks, with most remaining side effects fading after about six weeks. The results of a breast reduction are permanent; however, significant weight gain may undo many beneficial aspects of the procedure. For this reason, we suggest that patients maintain a stable weight following their breast reduction surgery. If your breasts are more substantial than you desire, or you struggle with back pain, shoulder pain, or other conditions, a breast reduction surgery can help.
Traditional breast implants are used to enhance breast volume and define breast shape. There are many implant variations, differing in size, shape, and material. Types of implants include silicone and saline materials, teardrop and round-shaped implants, and smooth or textured surfacing. Implant location is another factor that should be considered before deciding which implant you desire. Breast implants last for a long time, barring complications, such as rupture or capsular contracture. Most implants last at least 10 years, and some last as long as 20, though results may vary.

A breast revision procedure can correct unsatisfactory results or complications arising from a previous breast augmentation. This procedure can treat complications such as capsular contracture, implant rupture, unwanted implant movement, and more. Most patients manage to return to work within a week and resume vigorous activities within four to six weeks. Most results of a breast revision are visible once the swelling from the surgery subsides. Most results are long lasting and can be easily maintained with a healthy lifestyle. If you are unsatisfied with your previous breast augmentation, or if something has gone wrong, breast revision can correct these issues to leave you with the results you have always wanted.
Breast reconstruction is used to rebuild a breast that has been damaged, injured, or removed. This procedure will create a new natural-seeming breast that will restore your desired aesthetic. Most patients return to work in one to two weeks. Final results will gradually develop over the next six months. Depending on the type of reconstruction, the results may be apparent immediately following your surgery or may develop over time (if a tissue expander is used). If you have a breast that was damaged or removed and want a new breast, a breast reconstruction surgery can fulfill that desire.
