Breast lifting procedures have undergone a paradigm shift in the past several years to include a procedure known as a vertical mammoplasty. This surgical technique when indicated can produce a more attractive breast with less scarring than the more conventional procedures that have been performed over the past several decades. With few exceptions, I have gone to this style of operative technique in my practice. This type of surgery is especially indicated in patients who have small to moderate sized breasts and a significant amount of ptosis or sagging. The goal is to remove unwanted, loose skin while reshaping the remaining tissue into a more youthful breast mound. If implants are desired, these are placed in a separate procedure several months later to allow the incisions from the vertical mammoplasty to heal without tension. If you need more information or would like to see some of our before and after pictures, please call us at your convenience.
Women have been trying
to improve their skin aesthetically for centuries. Egyptians used to bathe in
sour milk for their skin not knowing that it was the lactic acid content that
we use today to produce the desired results. The French during the Renaissance
used red wine on their faces to take advantage of the tartaric acid contained
within the grapes. People of middle eastern descent would exfoliate their skin
by using fire to lightly singe themselves.
All of this was done in the interest of improving the quality of their skin by producing a selective insult to its surface to facilitate the body’s healing powers with epidermal and dermal remodeling. The real breakthrough came during the 1800’s when phenol peels came of age. That remained the gold standard until laser resurfacing became available in the 1990’s. However, the recovery time and the occasional complication soon made this modality of treatment less desirable even though when properly performed, produced as good a result as the Baker Gordon phenol peels of the past generation. Today as technology has tried to refine the CO2 laser, it has done so by partially or fractionally ablating/removing the epidermis and the upper part of the dermis (the skin’s foundation) by drilling a series of microscopic holes into the upper echelon of it. This creates a small debris field the body feels compelled to heal much like a community of people after a storm comes through and the results are significant improvement of the skin’s surface with much less downtime and/or chance for complications. If you need improvement of photo damaged skin with its attendant spots and roughened texture on your face, hands, or any other part of the body, then a fractional laser resurfacing procedure maybe just for you.
