Breast Implant Revision
Breast augmentation is a relatively straightforward surgical procedure, but if your previous surgeon did not attend to all the details involved in this operation, there may be various postoperative problems. To remedy these issues, Dr. Wirth will perform a breast implant revision of the previous operations to ensure a safe, attractive, and long-lasting result.
After making a thorough and accurate diagnosis of the previous procedures, Dr. Wirth may use a variety of plastic surgery techniques to address your problems and concerns regarding breast implants.
Breast lift surgery can provide a more youthful breast profile, and is accomplished by raising the breasts, removing any excess or sagging skin, and tightening the surrounding tissue.
Breast lift surgery will not significantly alter the size or volume of your breasts, so if you wish to change both the size and the profile of your breasts, talk to Dr. Wirth about reduction or augmentation. These procedures can often be done in one surgical setting.
There are several different techniques used in this method of breast restoration, including the many flap techniques, tissue expansion, and the use of surgical implants. These techniques may be used separately or in conjunction to restore a breast to its previous shape, size, and condition following a mastectomy.
For many women who have experienced a mastectomy as a result of cancer or other serious health conditions, this breast restoration serves as the final step toward complete and total healing. It may be performed on both breasts if necessary, or on just a single breast so that the new breast matches the other undamaged breast.
Breast reduction removes excess breast fat, glandular tissue, and skin in order to reduce breast size and create a breast that is more proportional with the rest of your body. Because large breasts often cause pain and discomfort, reductions may also help alleviate these symptoms, making physical activities easier.
Dr. Wirth has many years of experience performing breast reduction. With his experience in a variety of techniques, he can help you achieve a more manageable breast size through a procedure that is perfectly suitable for your body.
DIEP Flap Breast Reconstruction
DIEP flap breast reconstruction refers to a specific technique that utilizes the deep inferior epigastric perforator vein from the lower abdomen to create a new breast through an innovative and highly technical procedure.
The DIEP flap reconstruction removes an entire layer of tissue (skin, fat, and blood vessels) from the lower belly, re-establishes blood flow through precise microsurgical technique, and then artfully reconstructs the “breast.” This type of step requires time and a high level of technical skill, but can yield great results without the use of synthetic implants
TRAM Flap Breast Reconstruction
The TRAM flap breast reconstruction is a technique that creates new breast tissue from a flap of muscle, skin and fat from the transverse rectus abdominus mycutaneous region in the lower abdomen, between the waist, belly button and pubic bone.
By skillfully inserting the TRAM flap in place over the chest, Dr. Wirth can reconstruct the breasts after mastectomy or lumpectomy, matching the remaining breast or creating both breasts if necessary.
Latissimus Dorsi Flap Breast Reconstruction
Latissimus dorsi flap reconstruction is a highly effective technique for rebuilding the breasts following mastectomy. By sliding tissue from the upper back beneath the armpit and into the chest, this technique allows for a fairly straightforward form of breast restoration with a high success rate. By sliding the tissue without fully removing it from the body, Dr. Wirth is able to keep it attached the entire time, greatly increasing its survival rate and minimizing the chances of complications.
