Your Breast Surgery with Dr. Ellis
Dr. Ellis offers several types of breast surgery, including the following:
- Breast augmentation surgery with saline or silicone implants increases the size and fullness of small or flat breasts. Dr. Ellis is skilled in a variety of implant placement techniques and incision patterns, and offers different implant types and sizes to satisfy his patients’ goals.
- Breast reduction surgery reduces oversized, heavy, pendulous breasts by removing excess tissue, fat and skin. Dr. Ellis’s goal is to create a smaller and more proportional breast size, eliminating the physical and psychological discomfort associated with oversized breasts.
- Breast lift surgery repositions saggy breasts higher on the chest in a perkier arrangement. By removing excess skin and reshaping the tissues, Dr. Ellis can give the breasts a more youthful appearance.
- Breast reconstruction recreates one or both breasts lost to cancer. Dr. Ellis offers implant- and flap-based reconstruction; the former uses saline or silicone implants to reconstruct the breast mound and the latter uses a flap of the patient’s own tissue.
Discussing Your Options with Dr. Ellis
A comprehensive consultation is the first step toward a successful surgical outcome.
During your initial consultation with Dr. Ellis, the two of you will discuss your specific breast surgery needs and goals. The doctor will ask you questions about what you don’t like about your natural breasts and ask you to describe the result you hope to achieve through breast surgery. Then, he will outline his recommended treatment plan to help you accomplish those goals. Dr. Ellis will consider your natural anatomy, desired aesthetic outcomes and his clinical judgment when designing the surgical plan.
Once you and Dr. Ellis have decided on a suitable course of action, the surgery will be booked and you will receive instructions for preparing for the operation.
