If your breasts are not ideally suited to your frame or if they cause you any sort of physical or emotional discomfort, it may be time to contact board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. George Chatson to discuss your surgical options. A caring and experienced breast surgeon, Dr. Chatson pays close attention to the desires of each of our patients and takes time to customize breast surgery options to help ensure natural-looking and ideally contoured results.
Breast Surgery for Women
Dr. Chatson employs a range of breast surgery techniques, enabling him to meet the exact needs of the patients we serve. During your initial consultation, Dr. Chatson will listen carefully to your concerns, evaluate your breasts as they relate to your entire frame, and guide you toward the most effective solutions.
Breast surgery options offered by Dr. Chatson include:
- Breast Augmentation. Consistently top among the most popular plastic surgery procedures, breast augmentation is used to produce symmetrical, full, and ideally shaped breasts that improve upper-body harmony. Dr. Chatson offers various breast implant options, including gummy bear implants, and a comprehensive range of surgical options to ensure he is able to customize each breast augmentation for optimal results.
- Breast Lift Surgery. Ptosis (sagging) is an issue that impacts many women. Sagging breast tissue, loose skin in the breast crease, and unattractive nipple location may occur with age, be a result of pregnancy, or related to genetics. With breast lift surgery, Dr. Chatson can reshape the breast mound, eliminate unnecessary skin, and relocate the nipple to produce a firm, perky, and ideally contoured appearance.
- Breast Reduction Surgery. Large, heavy, pendulous breasts can be both an emotional and physical discomfort. Neck and back strain, painful bra-strap indentations, and chronic postural problems are all possible with overly-large breasts. So too are limited range of motion, limited clothing options, and limited ways to find comfort. Breast reduction surgery is used to bring the beast into ideal alignment with the rest of the body through the removal of excess fat and skin. In so doing, this procedure may improve physical comfort and ability, reduce pain, and enhance the appearance of the entire body.
These options often work well alone, but may also be complementary when combined. Common breast surgery combinations such as breast lift with augmentation or breast reduction with lift may work best to help you reach your goals. This is something that can be determined during your initial consultation with Dr. Chatson.
Dr. Chatson offers both breast implant reconstruction and TRAM-flap breast reconstruction to restore symmetry and balance following mastectomy or lumpectomy. Breast reconstruction can be performed in conjunction with mastectomy in some cases. Dr. Chatson has hospital privileges throughout Massachusetts and New Hampshire and may be able to work with your oncologist to minimize the amount of time you spend in surgery and recovery.
Breast Surgery for Men
Gynecomastia is a medical condition in which fat deposits or glandular tissue produce a more feminine look in male chests. If you are suffering from gynecomastia, Dr. Chatson would be happy to discuss male breast reduction options that can restore a masculine and toned physique.
Depending on the cause of your gynecomastia, this may include liposuction, the removal of glandular tissue, or a combination of both. What will best serve your needs can be discussed in greater detail during your male breast reduction consultation.
