While our bodies change with age, changes in breast shape and size can be due to a wide variety of factors, such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight gain, weight loss, certain medications, or the natural aging process. Thankfully, our team at Northwestern Specialists in Plastic Surgery can work with you to achieve your ideal breast size and shape through multiple procedure options.
The following are examples of breast procedures that we offer.
Breast Enhancement Surgery
Breast enhancement is a general term that refers to breast augmentation, breast reduction or breast lift procedures in Chicago. Breast augmentation is ideal for those who want to enlarge their natural breasts through implants. Our team will work with you to talk about your goals and help set realistic expectations for the outcome of your breast augmentation. An augmentation may be combined with a breast lift to achieve perkier breasts. Finally, a breast reduction may be ideal for those who suffer from back problems and other health discomfort due to large breasts.
Our team can also help with breast reconstruction surgeries. For example, we help women who have undergone double mastectomies regain their confidence through breast implants or other forms of reconstruction. Our team is proficient in 3-D nipple tattooing, pre-pectoral breast reconstruction, latissimus flap surgery, botched breast reconstruction, in addition to surgery for the DIEP flap and the SIEA flap.
Not Just for Women
While women primarily undergo procedures like breast reduction and breast lift in Chicago, our team knows that men may feel insecure about their pectoral region as well. If a healthy diet and exercise routine are not achieving the results for which you’ve been hoping, you may want to explore our surgical options. Gynecomastia is a common issue for men, and we have many options to help with a more defined chest area.
