It takes an outstanding cosmetic surgeon with superior knowledge of the female form to produce natural-looking results through breast lift and breast augmentation. San Jose-area residents have convenient access to a cosmetic surgeon who is known for consistently producing breast enhancement results of the highest caliber. To ensure that each woman's breast enhancement is perfectly suited to her physical needs and her aesthetic ideals, Dr. A.M. Yenikomshian offers fully customized breast augmentation (implants) and breast lift surgery for women in Los Gatos, San Jose, and other Bay Area communities.
With breast augmentation, Los Gatos- and San Jose-area cosmetic surgeon A.M. Yenikomshian can create subtle or spectacular curves that are beautiful and natural looking. As with all of the surgical treatments he offers, Dr. Yenikomshian performs breast augmentation surgery at a state-of-the-art ambulatory surgical center located near his private practice.
Women who would like to increase their breast size and who are in good physical and emotional health are generally suitable candidates for breast augmentation. Often, a woman will choose to undergo breast augmentation because her current bust size inhibits her from wearing the clothing she wishes. She may feel self-conscious when she wears a form-fitting top, or she may have difficulty finding clothing that fits properly.
Women may choose to combine breast lift surgery with breast augmentation to lift the breasts as well as add volume and roundness. Those who are currently pregnant or nursing, however, should wait until after pregnancy and breastfeeding to undergo the procedure.
During the breast augmentation procedure, also known as breast enlargement, Dr. Yenikomshian makes an incision through which he inserts the breast implant. The type of incision he uses is determined by a number of factors, including the patient's anatomy and her goals for surgery. Possible incision types include the periareolar (around the areola), the inframammary (in the crease of the breast), and the transaxillary (under the arm). Regardless of which type of incision that Dr. Yenikomshian uses, his advanced surgical skill allows him to minimize scarring. After placing the breast implants, experienced San Jose- and Los Gatos-area surgeon A.M. Yenikomshian makes careful adjustments to ensure that they look and feel as natural as possible. The implants may be either saline or silicone, depending on the individual patient's needs. The choice of the implants will be discussed and agreed upon before surgery in Dr. Yenikomshian's office. Saline implants consist of a silicone shell filled with a saltwater solution, whereas silicone implants are filled with silicone gel. The FDA lifted their 14-year ban on silicone implants in 2006 after years of rigorous testing. Silicone implants are approved by the FDA for use in breast augmentation patients 22 years of age and older.
The breast lift procedure is designed to rejuvenate a woman's curves when the skin of her breasts has been stretched due to weight loss, pregnancy, or age. Those who have also lost a volume may wish to combine breast augmentation (implants) with breast lift. At his San Jose- and Los Gatos-area cosmetic surgery practice, Dr. Yenikomshian conducts a thorough evaluation of all women considering breast lift surgery to determine whether the procedure is suitable to their needs. Women who have lost a considerable amount of weight and are left with excess skin that does not respond to exercise may also be interested in improving their entire physique with post-bariatric surgery.
Women who are in generally good health and whose breasts appear deflated or have begun to sag may benefit from breast lift surgery. Sagging may occur due to pregnancy, breast feeding, significant weight loss, or the loss of skin elasticity associated with the natural aging process. Since pregnancy and breast feeding may cause the breasts to stretch, it is advisable that women wait until after they have finished having children and nursing to undergo breast lift surgery.
Because Dr. Yenikomshian tailors the breast lift procedure to each individual, the details of the surgery vary from patient to patient. Usually, Dr. Yenikomshian makes an incision around the areola and beneath the breast in order to remove excess skin and then lifts the breast to a more youthful position. If the patient desires to increase the volume of her breasts, saline or silicone breast implants may be inserted during the breast lift procedure.
