Skinworks: The Art of Beautiful Medicine

Breast Surgery

Reducing, enlarging and enhancing the natural shape of the breast will do wonders for your self-confidence. Dr. Carr has been performing breast augmentations for over 15 years and has experience working with all types of breast surgery. He and his unique, passionate staff will help guide you in making the right choice for your individual situation.

There are four types of breast surgeries performed at Skinworks. Breast Enhancement uses breast implants to enhance the size and shape of the breast. Breast Reductions improve body proportions and relieve the symptoms related to overly large breasts. Breast Asymmetry Surgery will help to balance the size of the breasts when one breast is larger than the other, while Breast Lifts help restore the shape, tone and balance of the breast, nipple and areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple.

About the procedures

Dr Carr uses both traditional and new limited scar techniques. During breast augmentation, implants are inserted through an incision and placed behind the breast tissue or the chest muscle. The inframammary crease is a popular incision site where the incision is done under the crease of the breast. Another popular technique is endoscopic breast augmentation, where small incisions are placed in the underarm so there is virtually no visible scarring on the breasts! Traditional breast augmentation techniques involve created small incision on either edge of the areola.  Dr. Carr and his skilled staff will be able to guide you in making the right choice for your personal circumstances.

Dr. Carr also has extensive experience with the use of the new Cohesive gel implants for a truly soft and natural breast enhancement. Also, ask about the new shaped implants which are becoming increasingly popular.

During reduction surgery, fat, glandular tissue and excess skin are removed from the breasts, and the size of the areola can be reduced if desired.

Breast lift surgery or mastopexy surgery can be combined with breast augmentation when desirable. Breast surgeries only take a few hours under a general anaesthetic, and you will be able to return home on the same day.

What to expect during recovery

You will have approximately one week of recovery, accompanied by some swelling and tenderness. Patients must avoid heavy lifting for three weeks. For augmentations, a special support bra is worn for several weeks to ensure optimal implant position.

What you'll look like afterwards

Whether you are receiving a reduction, enhancement, or augmentation, Dr. Carr will leave you feeling more confident and comfortable with the size, shape and feel of your breasts. Despite initial swelling and discomfort, your body's enhanced shape will be evident immediately after surgery. Experience improved body shape and confidence with beautifully natural results.
