Woman’s breast undergoes changes throughout life. An inadequate breast volume and shape alters for some women their self- image and confidence. Various life events such as pregnancy, breast feeding or surgery may also change the breast shape. Breast appearance can be changed through a surgical intervention, such as breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, or breast reconstruction.
Using the vast experience in breast surgery, Dr. Timek will obtain a complete breast history and clarify its significance for yourself and your family. Dr. Timek will also review your previous mammograms, along with your radiologist, to assess your breast volume and other radiologic characteristics that may influence your procedure. During your initial consultation, Dr. Timek will demonstrate how you should perform self-examinations for earlier detection of masses that should be brought to the attention of your physician.
During your visit, standard photographs will be taken to provide you with images to be used to discuss more fully your concerns. Dr. Timek will encourage you to bring in any other photographs that may demonstrate to her the new look you wish to achieve. During your physical examination, precise anatomical measurements will be obtained to guide Dr. Timek on selecting the optimal procedure to change or reconstruct your breasts that will compliment your figure.
