Breast Surgery Q & A

Why might I need or want breast surgery?

Breast surgery isn’t usually a medical requirement unless you have breast cancer and need a mastectomy. At Somerset Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery, Dr. Clott specializes specifically in cosmetic surgeries that aim to help you achieve a body that makes you feel good about yourself. 

There are numerous reasons why you might feel that you need or want breast surgery. You might feel that your breasts are:

  • Too big 
  • Too small
  • Lopsided
  • Droopy
  • Disproportionate

As much as people try to ignore it, feeling confident in your body and the way you look is very important. If you’re a man with gynecomastia (large breasts) or a woman who recently gave birth and experienced changes to your breasts, it can be difficult not to focus on the way your body looks. Breast surgery can help you match your body to the way you feel.

What are the different types of breast surgery?

Dr. Clott provides several popular types of breast surgery to adjust the way your breasts look. They are:

Breast augmentation

Breast augmentation enhances the size and shape of your breasts with silicone or saline implants that Dr. Clott surgically places under your chest muscles.

Breast reduction

Breast reduction surgery involves the removal of some extra skin, fat, and tissue around your breasts. Reducing the size of your breasts can help with back problems, neck pain, and other complications associated with carrying excess weight on your chest.

Breast lift

A breast lift surgery doesn’t usually adjust the size of your breasts, although you can get it in conjunction with a breast augmentation. Instead, Dr. Clott removes extra skin to place your breasts higher on your chest and make them look perkier.

Am I a good candidate for breast surgery?

Like any type of surgery, breast surgery isn’t the safest or most appropriate treatment option for everyone. After a consultation, Dr. Clott might decide that you’re a candidate if you:

  • Are generally healthy
  • Are unhappy with your breast size or shape
  • Have fully developed breasts
  • Aren’t pregnant or breastfeeding
  • Have realistic goals and expectations
  • Can take some time off work for recovery
  • Don’t smoke
  • Have other symptoms as the result of the size of your breasts

You must answer all of Dr. Clott’s questions about your health and goals thoroughly and honestly to be sure that breast surgery is a good fit for you.
