Put yourself in the hands of a specialist

Perhaps you’ve never felt comfortable with the way your breasts look, and you’ve always wanted a change. Or maybe you liked your breasts, but breastfeeding or age has taken a toll. Regardless of the cause of the condition, Dr. Kreithen has the skills, experience, and artistry to deliver beautiful, natural-looking results for patients in the Sarasota and Tampa area. 

Breast augmentation

Breast augmentation is a surgery to enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breasts. This procedure can provide a proportionate figure and create a restored silhouette on women of any age.

By inserting an implant within each breast, Dr. Kreithen is able to increase a woman’s bustline by one or more bra cup sizes.

During your consultation, Dr. Kreithen will spend time listening to your concerns and goals.

He will then evaluate your frame and allow you to try on special implant sizers to help you find the most natural implants for your body type.

Women have many reasons for choosing breast augmentation, including: 

  • Breasts are too small
  • Breasts are asymmetrical
  • Mastectomy has changed appearance of the breasts

Breast lift 

A breast lift is a surgical procedure intended to correct a drooping bust line, as well as raise and re-shape sagging breasts. 

Over the years, factors such as pregnancy, nursing, excessive weight loss or gain, and the force of gravity cause a woman’s breasts to lose their natural elasticity.

This results in the breasts losing their shape and firmness, and beginning to sag or hang. During the procedure, excess skin and tissue are trimmed away, and the bustline is tightened and lifted. 

A breast lift can also reduce the size of the areola. If your breasts are small or have lost volume (for example, after breastfeeding), breast implants used in conjunction with a breast lift can increase both their firmness and their size.

Breast Implants

Breast reduction

Breast reduction is a surgical procedure in which excess fat, glandular tissue, and skin are removed. This results in smaller, lighter, and firmer breasts that are more proportionate to the rest of the body. Breast reduction can also reduce the size of the areola. 

Large, pendulous breasts may cause a woman to experience various medical problems such as back, shoulder, and/or neck pain, skin irritation, problems with breathing, and problems with posture as a result of the excessive weight of the breasts. In addition, many women feel self-conscious and embarrassed if they have uncommonly large breasts. Breast reduction can help reduce the weight of the breasts, allowing a woman to feel more confident and enabling her to play sports or exercise more comfortably. 

A breast reduction may be performed for physical relief, cosmetic improvement, or both.

Male breast reduction 

Male breast overdevelopment (known medically as gynecomastia) is a very common condition affecting an estimated 40% to 60% of all men to some degree. Though certain drugs and medical conditions have been linked with gynecomastia, there is no known cause in most cases.

For men who feel self-conscious about their appearance, gynecomastia surgery can help.

The procedure removes fat and or glandular tissue from the male breasts — and in extreme cases removes excess skin, resulting in a chest that is flatter, firmer, and better contoured.

Sometimes the excess breast tissue will resolve on its own, but not always. Even with diet and exercise, male breasts can remain. This is when surgery should be considered. The results from gynecomastia surgery can be permanent as long as a healthy weight is maintained.

Breast revision

If you have previously undergone a breast surgery but are no longer happy with the results, Dr. Kreithen performs breast revision surgery to correct the problem. Your issue may be that your implants are old, rippled, displaced, hardened, or uncomfortable. In some cases, an implant may even rupture. No matter what your reason may be for wanting to remove or replace your implants, we can help. 

Breast reconstruction

After a mastectomy, one or both breasts may be partially or completely removed. This can have a very serious impact a woman’s self-confidence, and how she views herself. Clothing may not fit the same, swimwear may show the deformity of the chest, and intimate relationships can become uncomfortable. 

This is an area where Dr. Kreithen uses his technical skill and compassion to individualize each woman’s unique circumstances to deliver the best possible result for each patient. As a specialist in breast reconstruction, Dr. Kreithen helps restore a natural breast shape and appearance for women who have undergone a mastectomy or those who were born with a congenital breast deformity.

FAQ

Should I wait until I’m finished having children to have a breast augmentation?

The effects that pregnancy has on the breasts may change the appearance of an augmented breast. Because of this, it’s typically recommended that a woman wait to become pregnant until six months post-procedure.

How should I choose my implant size and shape?

This is an incredibly important part of the breast enhancement process, as choosing incorrectly can result in disappointment and the desire for a revision surgery. This is why Dr. Kreithen will have an in-depth discussion with you about your lifestyle, aesthetic concerns, and desired goals during your consultation. Doing this will help determine the right implants for you. Dr. Kreithen will also evaluate your frame, and you will try on special implant sizers to help you find the most natural implants for your body type.

Can I breastfeed after a breast augmentation?

Yes. Because of where the implants are placed, the breasts’ ability to produce milk and breastfeed will not be affected.
