Cleveland’s Best Breast Lift Surgery
Sometimes the breasts are droopy or sag. This can just be from the way we are shaped or it can result from changes due to pregnancy, weight loss, or aging. The best Cleveland breast lift surgery, otherwise known as a mastopexy, is performed by Dr. Jason E. Leedy. In this surgery the breast is rejuvenated and made more youthful and appealing. A breast lift, or mastopexy, involves reshaping the breast so that it doesn’t hang as much and is perkier. The nipple position is elevated on the breast mound and enlarged areolas are reduced to a better size. If needed, some of the extra breast tissue can be removed in order to create a slightly smaller breast. If more breast fullness is desired then an implant can be placed at the same time as the lift. The end result with breast lift surgery is a perkier, prettier breast that is more youthful. The best in Cleveland mastopexy is found as the Cleveland Plastic Surgery Institute.
A breast lift surgery is individualized to a patient’s individual anatomic characteristics and their post-surgery goals. Most breast lift surgeries take between 2-3 hours and all are performed as outpatient procedures. Recovery is often 1-2 weeks. As with all surgical procedures there are scars but Dr. Leedy offers minimal-incision breast lift surgery for those who are appropriate candidates.

Cleveland Breast Reconstruction
Breast reconstruction is a wonderful way to restore a woman’s body and preserve a feminine form in those patients who require mastectomies or lumpectomies for treatment of breast cancer. Breast reconstruction can be performed at the same time as the surgery to remove the breast cancer, this is called immediate reconstruction, or it can be performed after all treatments such as chemotherapy and radiation therapy have been completed, this is called delayed reconstruction. Breast reconstruction is always covered by insurance, it is not considered cosmetic surgery. Even surgery on the non-cancer side is covered in order to improve overall breast symmetry. There are deductibles and other aspect of your insurance to consider but these procedures are covered so you should not avoid reconstruction because you are concerned they may be considered cosmetic.
The best reconstruction option for a patient depends on the individual situation.

Cleveland Male Breast Reduction Surgery
Men sometimes develop excess breast tissue which detracts from the masculine features of their chest. The medical term for this condition is called gynecomastia. This excess breast tissue can enlarge the areola and cause unsightly bulges. In advanced cases the excess tissue can stretch the surrounding skin and essentially create a small, feminine-appearing breast. This is a significant concern for many men and they find that despite exercises to build up the chest muscles the excess breast tissue persists. The majority of men with this problem simply developed the condition in puberty due to hormonal changes and the breast tissue failed to go away when they grew out of adolescence. In some men there can be medical reasons for this problem such as medications, marijuana use, hormonal imbalances, liver disease, or on rare occassions testicular tumors. If medical reasons have been ruled out, and this can usually be done by a medical history and physical by your doctor or by Dr. Leedy, and the only reason for the excess breast tissue is puberty-related hormonal changes, then surgical correction is a nice option.
The degree of the deformity determines the best treatment option. Dr. Leedy has treated patients with small cases using Smartlipo only or office-based excision of the sub-areolar excess tissue. In most patients the procedure is performed in the operating room and involves a combination of direct excision of the excess breast tissue and liposuction to shape the contours. In extreme cases excision of excess skin may also be needed and this creates scarring on the chest. Most procedures when performed in the operating room take approximately 2 hours and are outpatient. Recovery is usually a few days to a week off work and longer for exercise. If you are troubled with excess breast tissue call Dr. Leedy today and schedule your consultation.
