Our Surgical Breast Procedures
Women choose breast surgery for a variety of reasons. Whether you think your breasts are too small, too big, pendulous or asymmetrical, Dr. Schiesel will work closely with you to understand your concerns and create an appearance that makes you feel confident and feminine.
Dr. Schiesel offers a number of options and techniques to improve the contour and appearance of the breasts, including:
Of course, your figure involves more than just your breasts. Many women choose a comprehensive approach to attaining a youthful, attractive shape or restoring their pre-baby bodies with a mommy makeover. Mommy makeovers involve a combination of plastic surgery procedures designed to address multiple breast and body issues.
Why Choose Dr. Schiesel as Your Breast Surgeon?
As one of the few female plastic surgeons in Oklahoma, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brenda Schiesel has an intimate understanding of the connection between a woman’s body-image and self-image. Her patient-focused approach to breast surgery is rooted in the belief that there is no one-size-fits-all solution to world-class care. She will spend a considerable amount of time getting to know you: your concerns, your goals and your anatomical state. After a thorough discussion and physical evaluation, she will make recommendations based on your desired outcomes and her extensive experience with a variety of breast enhancement procedures.
Dr. Schiesel is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). This important distinction signifies her dedication to the art and science of plastic surgery. While any physician with a medical license can offer cosmetic services, only a board-certified plastic surgeon has demonstrated the knowledge, skill and history of outstanding results necessary to ensure the highest levels of quality and safety in the field of plastic surgery.
Can Breast Surgeries be Combined?
Absolutely. Breast surgeries are often combined to address multiple issues at the same time. For example, breast augmentation with breast lift adds volume and improves breast position, while breast lift with breast reduction improves firmness following tissue removal.
In some cases, such as mommy makeover surgery or post-bariatric surgery body contouring, breast surgeries may be combined with body procedures to ensure ideal symmetry and curves. During your initial consultation, Dr. Schiesel will listen to your concerns and evaluate your problem areas to help you determine if a combination of procedures will help you reach your goals.
Is Breast Surgery Permanent?
While all breast surgeries will produce long-lasting results, only breast reduction is permanent. Breast augmentation with implants can be expected to last 15 or more years, but implants may eventually need replacement. Similarly, a breast lift can create a firmer and perkier breast mound, but the tissue will gradually sag once again as time passes. Breast lift results may last for 10 to 15 years.
How Long Does it Take to Recover from Breast Surgery?
The length of recovery following breast surgery depends on the type of surgery, your body’s natural healing response, and similar factors. However, generally speaking, you can expect to need one to two weeks away from work and up to eight weeks before it is safe to resume all normal activities.
During your follow-up visits, Dr. Schiesel will assess your rate of recovery to help you determine when it is safe to integrate more demanding and strenuous tasks.
What is the Best Age for Breast Surgery?
You must be 18 years old to undergo any plastic surgery procedure. After 18, the “best” age to undergo breast surgery is whatever age you are when you decide you want it. There are considerations, such as plans for having children, which need to factor into your decision. This is why it makes sense to work with a female plastic surgeon who understands women’s bodies and can assist you in making the wisest choice.
Dr. Schiesel is one of very few women certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the only board-certified female plastic surgeon in Tulsa. If you are considering a breast procedure, she welcomes the opportunity to meet with you, listen to your desires, and help you determine the best time for your procedure.
Will Breast Surgery Interfere with Nursing?
Breast surgery can impact milk supply and nipple sensitivity. However, there are surgical options that can significantly reduce these risks. Once again, working with a board-certified plastic surgeon with sufficient training and experience can help to ensure those surgical options that reduce risks are utilized.
If you plan on having children in the future or are still determining your plans, Dr. Schiesel will provide information about different surgical techniques, along with their benefits and risks, to ensure you are making the best decision for your needs.
