A breast lift is a simple procedure that involves reshaping the breasts and lifting the tissue by tightening and removing excess skin. This procedure is often less invasive than other breast procedures and has a shorter recovery time
Breast augmentation is the most popular breast procedure performed today. It uses implants of silicone or saline to enhance the size and shape of your natural breasts. There are a variety of approaches that we can adjust to individual patients. Come and see our three dimensional modeling with the Crisalix system and see how good you can look.
For some people, the shape and size of their breasts are not the issue, but rather the look of their nipples. Nipple Surgery helps achieve symmetry between your nipples if you feel that your nipples are unevenly spaced or sized. This can help reduce nipples that are too large, correct nipples that are inverted, or completely reconstruct nipples lost to cancer. This procedure can be done quickly, is relatively painless, and you can typically return to work within 48 hours.
For some women, large breasts come with a host of other health problems such as back pain. A breast reduction is a procedure that involves removing tissue and reshaping the breasts to reduce strain on the neck, shoulders and back, among other things. This is done in conjunction with a breast lift to reduce sagging or signs of aging.
Breast reconstruction is a procedure that often follows cancer treatments or other serious illnesses where one breast has been damaged or removed.The surgeons at Vanguard are experts in implant based reconstruction, reconstruction with your own tissue, or a combination of techniques best suited for you.
Implant-based reconstruction is a type of breast reconstruction procedure which allows you to replace damaged tissue with a permanent implant. This is usually done in two steps to allow your tissue to grow and achieve a natural appearance.
Using Your Own Tissue Reconstruction
An autologous mastectomy is a form of breast reconstruction which uses existing tissue from your thighs, belly, back or buttocks to re-form the breast. This procedure requires harvesting the tissue flap from another part of your body and placing it in the breast. Although more complicated, the surgeons at Vanguard have extensive experience with every technique in breast reconstruction including the highly complicated microvascular TRAM, SIEA and DIEP operations.
Lymph Node Transplants
Lymph nodes often fall victim to cancerous cells forcing their removal. A lymph node transplant will restore functionality to your lymphatic system and may offer hope from swelling and possible infections as a result of lymphedema. This is a complex microsurgical technique and is offered at only select practices.
