Release of Inverted Nipple
Nipple ReductionFor patients with overly prominent nipples, nipple reduction can be performed under local anesthesia or at the same time as other breast surgeries such as augmentation or lift. The prominent nipple is tucked back into the breast to give a smaller diameter and less projection. This is occasionally performed as well for male patients.
Areolar diameter reductionAreolar reduction generally occurs as part of a full breast lift or breast reduction. In certain circumstances, Patients can undergo areolar reduction under local anesthesia or as part of a breast augmentation and lift. This is called in purse string mastopexy where the tissues are gathered around smaller areola like tightening the string on a purse. Because this type of lift with areolar reduction can be more variable in the quality of the scar that produces I try to use it selectively.
Reducing the puffy aeolaSome men and women have discrete fullness or puffiness of the areola. Under local anesthesia tissue can be removed from under the entire aeola to make it flatter. This procedure will generally result in some loss of sensation to the nipple and will certainly diminish the ability to breast feed.
Scars RevisionDespite our best efforts sometimes scars can be thick or widen over time. Regardless of race, color, or nationality the techniques used for surgery always endeavor to make the finest scar possible. A genetic predisposition to thicker scars can sometimes be seen in the Asian, African American or Middle Eastern population.
Even in this population scar revision will sometimes improve results because scar revision involves the removal of only a small amount of tissue. In breast lift, reduction, and even sometimes augmentation scars can widen because of tension on the skin. Scar revision is generally performed about one year after surgery when the tissues have relaxed and tension is minimal . In this situation reapproximating the scar can sometimes give a better result. For small scars this can be done on the local anesthesia.
Exchange of a saline implant after leakage or ruptureFor a healthy patient with a recently deflated saline implant, the implant can sometimes be exchanged or replaced under local anesthesia. This is evaluated on a case-by-case basis. For patients who have had a long-standing deflation, wish to change to a larger implant or want a gel implant implant exchange, these procedures are generally performed under a light general anesthesia because in this situation the implant pocket may need to the adjusted or enlarged.

What is labioplasty and why talk about it on a breast surgery site?
Labioplasty is the trimming or removal excess vaginal labial tissue (the vaginal lips). Some women with excesss labial tissue experience difficulty or discomfort with sexual intercourse others simply wish to change the appearance of the external vaginal lips. Some women feel more comfortable in clothing or during exercise. The reason I include labioplasty in this site is that I have had a number of patients who did not know that labioplasty was available to them. Had they know, they would have had the procedure performed while they were already asleep for breast enhancement. For the purposes of decorum I have not included photos of this procedure there but i review examples are in consultation.
While I'm asleep...
is a very popular phrase. Multiple procedures can be considered and are common as long as they can be done safely. Each patient's plan is individualized. The most common "while your at it" combination is breast enhancement with Liposuction of other areas or a tummy tuck.
