Breast surgery


Plastic surgery

The aim of plastic surgery in general is the renovation and/or the remodeling of the face and the silhouette of subjects in good health.

This is different from reconstructive and repair surgery,which is to restore what nature, disease or a trauma has taken away or deformed.

Only doctors qualified in plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery and registered by the order are allowed to practice this specialty.

There are many techniques and non surgical alternatives in cosmetic surgery which can be proposed according to each case.

Breast lift

For breast surgery (mastopexy or breast resculpting), Dr Legaillard may use several techniques depending on each patient's needs.

Often, after pregnancy or weight loss, the breasts fall. It is a change in the size of the breast gland which is often the main cause.

The intervention consists of a glandular replanning associated with a cutaneous face lift. This may be coupled with a lipofilling. There are thus variable scars (periareolar when roundblock with mammary implant or lipofilling, vertical, scar in J or reversed T)

The best surgical solution will be selected according to skin excess, the state of the breast and the skin condition (stretch marks etc). The satisfaction of the patient is our primary goal, to attain symmetry, balance and harmonious proportion to the bust.

This technique is ideally adapted to the symmetrisation of the breast as the result of mammary reconstruction after cancer.
