Breast asymmetry can exist in terms of shape and/or volume and can be a cause of worry and distress. Using the techniques of augmentation, mastopexy, reduction and fat grafting, Mr Ridha is able to correct different types of breast asymmetry by combining these techniques as necessary to achieve symmetry.
Breast Enlargement (Augmentation)
Breast enlargement is often sought to enhance naturally small breasts or rejuvenate breasts that have lost volume post pregnancy, breast feeding and/or weight loss.
Breast augmentation (enlargement) enhances the size and shape of the breast using implants, fat or a combination of both.
Mr Ridha’s aesthetic approach integrates the latest technologies and developments in breast augmentation to provide you with current choices to help you achieve your ideal.
Breast Enlargement With Uplift (Augmentation Mastopexy)
Whilst a mastopexy corrects ptotic (droopy) breasts by lifting and tightening the breast, it will not restore lost breast volume. Should you wish to improve the shape of your breast as well as increase their volume then one can combine a breast uplift with an augmentation. This may be achieved with an implant or through fat grafting.
During your consultation, Mr Ridha will discuss and recommend the most appropriate technique tailored to meet your individual needs and desire.
Breast Implant Removal and/or Revision
The vast majority of ladies who have had their breasts enlarged with implants are delighted. However, some women may elect to have further surgery to their breasts for a variety of reasons. Mr Ridha will listen to your concerns and desires and after a careful examination will make a tailored plan to meet your objectives.
Breast and Nipple Variations
Variations in breast appearance such as tuberous breasts, accessory breasts, large nipples or even extra nipples can occur as a result of divergences in breast development.
Breast reconstruction following a mastectomy is an integral component of the treatment process for breast cancer and signals the turning point for a new beginning. Breast reconstruction can be offered as an immediate (at the time of mastectomy) or delayed (at a later date after the mastectomy) procedure. The techniques can be broadly divided into autologous, implants or a combination.
During the consultation, Mr Ridha will discuss the available treatment options that can achieve your desired breast shape, size and contour.
Large breasts can be a cause of physical pain, such as back, shoulder and neck ache, as well as a source of social embarrassment. Breast reduction surgery, also known as a ‘reduction mammoplasty’ is a surgical procedure performed under general anaesthetic and involves the removal of excess skin, fat, and breast tissue.
Breast Uplift (Mastopexy)
A mastopexy, commonly referred to as a breast uplift, is a cosmetic procedure that aims to treat breasts that have lost their elasticity and become droopy (ptotic) as a result of pregnancy, weight loss and/or ageing. A breast lift restores the breasts to a more youthful and pert appearance by elevating and reshaping the breast tissue to a more aesthetically pleasing position and removing any excess skin.
There are different mastopexy techniques and Mr Ridha will select the most appropriate to achieve your goals and aesthetic outcome.
Male breast reduction (Gynaecomastia)
Abnormally enlarged male breasts also known as man boobs or ‘moobs’ affects up to 40% of men. Gynaecomastia correction surgery involves removing excess fat and glandular tissue from the chest. Excess skin may also be removed in certain cases if necessary to achieve a well contoured chest.
Mr Ridha uses either liposuction, direct surgical removal of excess breast tissue with or without skin or a combination of both techniques to create a firmer and more defined masculine chest appearance.
