Types of Breast Surgery

TYPES OF Cosmetic BREAST SURGERY
What is the Inverted Nipple?

 

The normal nipple is protruding out of the areola, but the inverted nipple is buried inside the breasts. It is caused by weak tissues supporting the nipple, or the short length of the lactiferous duct, and so on. These symptoms are mostly naturally inborn. The purpose of inverted nipple correction is to have a normal function of the nipple(possible to breast feed), and to have an cosmetic correction effect as well. Moreover, it can solve a variety of problems such as nipple inflammation, lactiferous duct tissue destruction, breast cancer, and also emotional withdrawal.
Surgical Method

 

Inverted nipple correction is quite a simple cosmetic breast surgery that it takes about an hour. It has a quick recovery period and almost doesn’t interfere with daily life.

Pre-Operation Examination

 

To figure out the exact cause of inverted nipple, conduct an ultrasonic breast biopsy. This is to check the length of lactiferous duct and the tissues pulling nipples.
Correction through a Lactiferous Duct Preservation Method

 

A lactiferous duct preservation method is literally the surgical method that makes the nipple protruded without damage to lactiferous duct. After taking out the nipples, removes the tissues pulling the nipple and ties it to support the nipple. Because it doesn’t damage lactiferous duct, breast-feeding is possible after the cosmetic breast surgery. This method is suitable for people around 20s-30s or someone who would have plans of breast-feeding. If, however, there is such a severe condition of the inverted nipples, the other correction without preserving lactiferous duct is recommended to choose because of relapse possibility.

Accessory Breast

 

As you can see from the name, it’s a symptom of growing another breast under the armpit. To be exact, it’s the development of less-degenerated mammary gland tissue. In severe cases, there is the nipple on accessory breast although it depends on the person. Accessory breast is caused by hormone changes due to breast-feeding or pregnancy or the sudden weight change, according to the growth of mammary gland tissue which is less-degraded. Accessory breast usually is reduced as the causes of the symptoms disappear. If symptoms are severe, however, this can be perfectly solved by the operation removing the mammary gland tissue of accessory breast.

Surgical Method

Removal of the Adipose Layer through Water-jet Liposuction

 

Liposuction to remove the adipose layer of accessory breast. Water-jet method can minimize unnecessary tissue damage and bleeding by using water pressure. Water-jet liposuction can also reduce pain and recovery period.
Removal of the Adipose Layer through Accushape-Laser Liposuction
