Shreveport Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation, or breast enlargement, is a surgical procedure that can be used to not only increase, but enhance the size and shape of your breasts. This works to give you the physical appearance you desire, as well as boost your self-confidence and self-esteem. In addition, this procedure often makes it easier for women to wear certain styles of clothing and outfits that may not have been as flattering before.

What women are the best candidates for breast augmentation?

  • Those who feel insecure about the small cup size of their breasts
  • Those who have suffered a loss of breast size after nursing
  • Those who are dealing with the symptoms of aging
  • Those whose breasts are two different, distinct sizes
  • Those whose breasts have changed shape or size due to weight loss
 

No matter what reasons you believe breast augmentation is a procedure that would benefit you, our team at The Plastic Surgery Center can go over your case and help you maintain realistic expectations and goals. All those who wish to undergo augmentation should be in good physical health with no conflicting medical conditions.

What is involved in the breast augmentation procedure?

During this surgical procedure, Dr. Wall will make an incision in the armpit, around the areola, or even underneath the breast and create a pocket under the breast tissue for an implant. He will then place it inside, positioning it in a manner that gives the best cosmetic results. These silicone shells can be filled with either saline or silicone gel, both of which have been approved by the FDA.

You can rest assured knowing that Dr. Wall always strives to create an incision that leaves inconspicuous and subtle scarring. Once you are finished, we will give you full instructions on postoperative care and limitations. This will help your procedure be as successful as possible and allow for the fastest recovery. You can expect to most likely return to work within just a few days if there are no complications.

Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation

A fat transfer—or fat grafting—is a procedure that involves transferring fat from one part of the body into another. A breast augmentation is a procedure that changes the size of the breasts, usually by use of silicone or saline implants. Therefore, a fat transfer breast augmentation is seemingly a combination of the two, as fat tissue enhances the breast size via injection.

What women are the best candidates for fat transfer breast augmentation?

  • Those who feel insecure about the small cup size of their breasts
  • Those who have suffered a loss of breast size after nursing
  • Those who have enough fatty tissue on other areas of the body to be harvested and redistributed
  • Those who seek a more natural method of breast enhancement
  • Those who have realistic expectations
 

Fat Transfer breast augmentation procedure

The fat transfer breast augmentation process begins by removing excess fatty tissue through an incision in your abdominal region or other areas where you have unwanted bulges. They may harvest the fat via liposuction from places such as your arms, belly, thighs, lower back, or even your neck or chin. Once the fat is removed from the body via liposuction, it will be carefully purified, with STEM cells being separated from the fat. The purified fat is then injected back into the breasts.

Fat grafting uses very small incisions to both suction the fat out of one area and inject the fat into another. The procedure itself only lasts a couple hours. You will be put under local anesthesia for the duration of the surgery. Expect the procedure to take about an hour or two, depending on how much tissue they transfer and where they are harvesting it from.

Breast Reduction in Shreveport

Breast reduction can actually be a very helpful surgery for women who have large, potentially sagging breasts. Many times, these issues can create neck, back, and shoulder pain for women. Through reduction, they can better enjoy their lives and find relief from pain and self-esteem hindrances. While patients of all ages may undergo breast reduction, it is recommended that you wait until your breasts have fully developed or have no intention to breast-feed.

Think you are a candidate for breast reduction? You may be if you have:

  • Excessive pain in your neck or back due to large breasts
  • Breasts that are disproportionate to your body size
  • Difficulty with exercising or physical activities due to breast size
  • Asymmetry in breasts, with one being much larger
 

Breast Reduction Procedure

The breast reduction surgery is very simple, with fatty tissue, glandular tissue, and excess skin being removed to allow for the breast to be pulled tighter. This creates a lighter, firmer appearance and feel. You will need to make sure you follow Dr. Wall’s instruction for postoperative recovery in the days after and will likely be healed and able to engage in regular activities in just two to three weeks!

Breast Lift in Shreveport

Even if you were confident in your physical appearance at a younger age, time can take a toll on even the most anatomically perfect individuals. Pregnancy, weight loss, nursing, and even unavoidable gravity can all contribute to the sagging appearance of a woman’s breasts. While this can be frustrating, a simple breast lift can easily correct this condition and restore that natural and youthful firmness.

The best candidates for breast lifts include:

  • Mothers who nursed multiple children
  • Older women who have noticed less firmness
  • Healthy, stable women with grounded expectations
  • Those seeking to regain a youthful appearance
  • Women who have sagging breasts due to loss of skin elasticity

For those women who plan to have more children in the future or are still uncertain, it is best to hold off on undergoing any surgery until fully ready, as pregnancy and breast-feeding can take away from the surgical results. Those who do proceed with this surgery should be aware that there may be complications or side effects, such as scars, infection, changes in feeling in the nipple or breast, and other issues.

Dr. Wall can meet with you and discuss your goals and desired results and help you determine if a breast lift is the best option for your situation.

Breast Implant Removal

There are a number of reasons someone might want to have their breast implants removed. Most often, however, implants need to be removed or exchanged due to the presence of hardened scar tissue around the implant. This scar tissue becomes problematic when it begins to squeeze the implant, as it can cause the implant’s exterior to split and rupture, leaking dangerous silicone into the body.

The best candidates for breast implant removal include:

  • Are physically healthy and your weight is stable
  • Do not smoke
  • Have experienced discomfort or pain and believe it is due to your implants
  • Feel your breasts are too heavy
  • Feel the scar tissue around your implant becoming harder or tighter
  • Notice that imaging suggests your implants are leaking or have ruptured 
  • Have experienced a rupture or leak in your implants 
 

If you are considering a breast implant removal, it is important to consult with a qualified plastic surgeon about what to expect during the procedure and during recovery.

Tubular Breast Correction

Tubular breasts, or tuberous breasts, are characterized in this way because of their shape. Though the symptoms can vary, tubular breasts tend to be more cone-like in shape as opposed to a natural, rounded shape. This often creates a vast asymmetry of the breasts, especially if only one is affected by the condition. A herniation of tissue on the breast might also occur in the nipple-areolar complex. This herniation can significantly exaggerate the size of the areola as compared to the rest of the breast. 

Tubular breasts become apparent in the earliest stages of puberty. Because this is the time when women begin to pay the most attention to their bodies, a tubular breast deformity is something that is generally very obvious. It also often has a lasting effect on their psychological well-being and sexuality. Luckily, this deformity of the breast can be fixed through a tubular breast correction

If you believe you have a tubular breast deformity and seek to correct it, schedule a free consultation with Dr. Wall to discuss your options and desired results.

Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia Surgery)

Gynecomastia surgery, commonly known as male breast reduction, is a cosmetic surgery that flattens and enhances chest contours in men, removing excess breast tissue. Though this surgery is technically called reduction mammaplasty, this term is usually applied to female breast reduction, and most surgeons and patients refer to male breast reduction as gynecomastia surgery.

Gynecomastia is a condition that can occur in men of any age and is characterized by overdeveloped and enlarged breasts. There are several conditions that can cause this, including hormonal changes. heredity, obesity, and the use of certain drugs. Though this condition is not dangerous the overwhelming majority of the time, it can cause emotional discomfort to men and impair their self-confidence.

Candidates for gynecomastia surgery will generally be:

  • Men whose condition cannot be corrected through alternative medical treatments
  • Men with good, stable physical health
  • Nonsmokers and non-drug users
  • Men whose breast development has stabilized 
  • Men who are bothered by the feeling that their breasts are too large

If you believe you have gynecomastia and seek to correct it, schedule a free consultation with Dr. Wall to discuss your options and desired results.
