Many women who suffer from irregular breast shapes, uneven breasts, tuberous (tubular) breasts or nipples that are uneven or inverted, often believe they are the only ones and that nothing can be done. While these conditions are usually due to inherited traits, they are surprisingly common and can be corrected through special procedures performed regularly by Dr Winkler. Reconstructive surgery may involve a combination of augmentation, lift, reduction and corrective techniques.
With today’s surgical advances, you now have more reconstructive options available to you if you have lost a breast to mastectomy. The ideal is to create a breast that is similar in appearance and form to your natural breast.
Breast reconstruction refers to several techniques that can be used to reconstruct the breast following removal. Reconstruction is often performed at the same time as the mastectomy, so that you can awaken with a reconstructed breast. However, some women prefer to postpone reconstruction until months or even years after their mastectomy.
Gynecomastia is a medical condition characterised by an enlarged male breast. Though not often discussed, this is a common condition and many men suffering from gynecomastia are very self-conscious of their appearance. There is often no known cause for gynecomastia, though it has been associated with some medical conditions and the use of certain drugs.
Male breast reduction is a surgical procedure that can help to contour the male chest for a flatter, firmer appearance. Excess fat, tissue and skin are removed from the chest. The surgery may be performed on one or both breasts, depending on the individual patient’s condition. During your consultation, Dr Winkler will be happy to discuss the options available to you and how male breast reduction can help you meet your desired goals.
