breast augmentation

Breast Augmentation | Breast Implants
Breast Augmentation (Breast Enlargement) can restore a woman’s self confidence by augmenting with Breast Implants (either silicone or saline). Rather than offer a one size fits all, Dr. Christman spends a lot of time discussing the wishes and needs of each individual patient – selecting the right set of implants to fit the patient’s expectations, not his own.Because many women develop breast hardness following augmentation, Dr. Christman discovered that the reason for this is the blood which remains in the breast pocket. This can cause capsular contracture, a condition where the implant is trapped in a tight space.To counteract this natural tendency, Dr. Christman developed an innovative and unique drainage-irrigation system whereby all the blood is removed over the post-operative period. This is time-consuming, but well worth the effort. Dr. Christman knows of no other plastic surgeon offering this service. The usual outcome is much softer and more natural breasts.
breast lift
Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
As a product of aging combined with pregnancy/breast-feeding, breasts can sag. A Breast Lift (Mastopexy) can restore a youthful appearance. In some patients, the procedure can be performed under local anesthesia at the Christman Plastic Surgery Center in Dayton.
breast reconstruction
Breast Reconstruction
While the primary goal of breast cancer surgery is to eradicate the disease, restoring the breast is important to most women. With over 30 years experience in Breast Reconstruction, Dr. Christman is capable of offering superior results by reshaping the involved breast as well as the opposite one. These procedures are individualized to a patient’s needs, and a consultation prior to mastectomy is highly recommended. Call the Christman Plastic Surgery Center.
breast reduction
Breast Reduction
Enlarged, or hypertrophic breasts, can result in breast pain, neck pain, back pain, skin irritation, breathing problems, as well as being an obstacle to an exercise program. Breast Reduction should be performed meticulously in order to reduce complications and scarring. Dr. Christman’s has helped many women over the past 30+ years. Women often regret not having this procedure many years previously.

Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)
Many men are troubled by excess breast tissue. This can sometimes present during adolescence or it can present later in life, sometimes due to weight gain. Gynecomastia surgery can often be performed via liposuction (Breast Lipo). Sometimes, however, an open approach might be necessary. Prominent areolae can be reshaped, if necessary. These Breast Reduction options are individualized to each patient’s needs and desires.
