Breast Procedures in Orange County, CA
Breasts can be, for many women, a marker of their femininity, a focal point of their physique and personal fashion style, and a symbol of their womanhood. Thus, breasts are, in certain ways, a core piece of their identity. Breast procedures are as varied as the patients who undergo them, offering a wide range of enhancement, repositioning, and aesthetic improvement options. A breast procedure can be the key to better confidence, a desired aesthetic, and a step towards a new sense of self.
Dr. Robert Wald is highly experienced in cosmetic and reconstructive breast procedures, offering meticulous surgical precision and an eye for feminine beauty. Your breast procedure will be customized precisely to your needs, desires, and specific body type for unparalleled results.
Many women desire rounder, fuller breasts. This can be due to having naturally small breasts or their hopes of reaching a more feminine aesthetic. Breast augmentation has some of the best satisfaction of any cosmetic surgery; many women are overjoyed at their results. Breast augmentation can increase volume, create a symmetrical effect, and boost a woman’s confidence.
For women experiencing breast sagging (ptosis), elongated nipples, and uneven breasts, a breast lift is nothing short of revolutionary. By removing excess skin, reshaping the breast tissue into a more pleasing appearance, and repositioning the nipple on the breast, a breast lift offers a complete transformation into perkier, more youthful breasts.
Living with large, pendulous breasts can be physically and emotionally taxing: many women with large breasts suffer from back and neck pain, experience difficulty sleeping, and feel frustrated with the movement and fashion limitations their large breasts can present. Breast reduction surgery is freeing for many reasons; this procedure reduces the size and weight of the natural breast tissue, removes excess skin to lift the breasts into a more youthful position, and restructures the shape for a more comfortable, beautiful result.
For many women who have undergone or must undergo a mastectomy, breast reconstruction is a vital part of their recovery process. Dr. Wald offers multiple surgical options, all designed to restore the appearance of natural breast tissue.
Breast augmentation is a long-lasting procedure, but implants are not designed to last a lifetime. There are many reasons a woman may elect for breast revision: she is unsatisfied with the results of her previous procedure, she desires to upgrade the size or shape of her breast implants to match her lifestyle, or she is facing issues with her current breast implants. No matter the reason, Dr. Wald offers many breast revision options, including different breast implant types, shapes, and sizes, to accommodate the diverse needs of his patients.
Breast Implant Removal
Breast implant removal may be appropriate for women who no longer want to maintain their breast implants, who no longer feel the implants match their lifestyle, or who are facing issues with their health that require their removal. Dr. Wald can safely remove breast implants, sometimes utilizing the same incision site to minimize visible scarring and to give patients the look and feel they desire.
Inverted Nipple Correction
Inverted nipples are a common concern for many women; some experience retraction in one or both nipples, which can occur at any time. Many patients undergo inverted nipple correction because they are made self-conscious by their nipples or they worry they may have difficulties breastfeeding. In any case, inverted nipple correction is a straightforward procedure that will allow the nipple to project normally and can be easily combined with other cosmetic breast surgeries such as breast augmentation or breast lift surgery.
Nipple and Areola Reduction
Having disproportionately large areolas can be detrimental to the overall appearance of the breasts and damage a woman’s confidence. While this can occur due to genetics, aging, or breastfeeding, overly large, puffy, or droopy nipples/areolas can be addressed with a nipple and areola reduction with Dr. Wald.
En Bloc Capsulectomy
While rare, some women experience issues with their breast implants that are outside their control. Cases of capsular contracture, implant ruptures or rippling, and breast implant illness are just a few reasons a woman may need to undergo an en bloc capsulectomy. This procedure lets your surgeon remove the breast implants and any surrounding scar tissue in one unit. Dr. Wald offers multiple options for en bloc capsulectomy depending on the patient’s needs, including en bloc with fat grafting and en bloc with lift.
How to Select Your Breast Implant Size
When it comes to choosing your breast implants for your breast augmentation, the options can be overwhelming. Dr. Wald has compiled a list of breast implant types with helpful guidelines to help you consider your options and will walk you through the process during your consultation.
