As the skin loses its elasticity, the breasts often lose their shape and firmness and begin to sag. Breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts. As part of the procedure, the size of the areola (the darker skin surrounding the nipple) can also be reduced. Any asymmetries between the two breasts can be balanced, and the size of the breast can also either be reduced or enhanced with the use of an implant at the same time as the breast lift.

read more › While some patients only desire an increase in breast size and others an improvement in breast shape, many women desire both and a single stage (one procedure) breast augmentation with a breast lift (mastopexy) can be performed in select patients desiring both increased breast size as well as improved breast shape. Patients often desire a breast augmentation with lift after pregnancy, after weight loss, or simply because they feel both their breast fullness and shape can be improved, and for many of these women a single stage breast augmentation with lift is an excellent option.

read more › Women with heavy, pendulous breasts may experience a variety of medical problems. The weight of their breasts can create upper back and neck pain, skin irritation and the bra straps may even leave indentations in the shoulders. Additionally, unusually large breasts can make a woman or teenager feel extremely self-conscious. Breast reduction surgery, technically known as reduction mammaplasty, is a procedure designed for such women. Dr. Salemy utilizes the short scar technique of breast reduction surgery, known as a vertical reduction.

read more › While surgeons and patients alike all want excellent results from a single breast enhancement procedure, at times a second breast procedure is necessary to optimize or revise the appearance of the breasts. The most common reasons patients are interested in breast revision surgery or procedure include implant malposition (the implant has moved out or down from where it was placed), capsular contracture (a hard scar has formed around the implant which can alter the shape or feel of the breast and may even hurt), asymmetry (the two breasts look very different from one another) or simply dissatisfaction with the implant size or feel.

read more › Gynecomastia is the technical term for the presence of breast tissue in men. For many men afflicted with this condition, it can be very unnerving and frustrating, as often diet and exercise simply do not correct the problem. Surgery for gynecomastia involves using liposuction, direct excision, or a combination of procedures to not only remove the breast tissue but to contour the surrounding soft tissues in order to achieve a more sculpted, masculine chest. Most men heal very nicely with hidden incisions and can return to normal activity within a few days.

read more › A tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, is a plastic surgery procedure that removes excess abdominal skin and fat, tightens the skin on the abdomen, and helps patients achieve a smoother, flatter stomach and more slender look. We all desire a flat, youthful tummy. However, age, child bearing, lack of exercise and weight gain are the enemies in this battle. A tummy tuck (Abdominoplasty) is an excellent option to help reverse the adverse effects of this battle. In addition, Dr. Salemy designs the procedure to narrow the waist and tighten the abdominal muscles that often loosen with pregnancy, time or age, and he does so through a limited incision placed very low in the bikini line.

read more › As residents of Seattle and the Pacific Northwest, we are lucky to live in a region that prides itself on a healthy lifestyle. However, sometimes diet and exercise alone simply cannot address certain areas of persistent excess fat, and this is where liposuction can play a wonderful role. Liposuction can not only remove stubborn pockets of excess fat but it can contour and shape areas of the body to create a more aesthetically pleasing look. Liposuction is becoming increasingly common for women as well as men of all ages because of its ability to contour and slim trouble spots.

While most of these changes are welcome, the actual pregnancy, breast feeding, and sudden lack of personal time can affect a young mother's body in ways that cannot be corrected simply with diet or exercise. And no matter how hard moms try to undo the physical changes that occur during the childbearing years, they often cannot get back their pre-pregnancy size and shape.
