I would recommend Dr. Christie to anyone who’s looking for a doctor that will customize your breast augmentation to suit your body without jeopardizing a natural aesthetic.”

BEFORE & AFTER

BREAST AUGMENTATION

Breast augmentation continues to be one of the top cosmetic procedures performed worldwide and is one of Dr. Christie’s favorite signature procedures! During the consultation process she spends a significant amount of time discussing the best options based on your anatomy. The first step is discussing the patient’s aesthetic goals. This is followed by a thorough discussion about silicone vs saline and best choice for incision location. Breast augmentations are performed using either silicone or saline implants via incisions under the breast, around the areola, or underneath the arm. Finally, implant placement (on top of the pectoralis muscle or below it) is tailored to each patient’s anatomy and lifestyle. Each of these decisions is discussed in detail with the patient and tailored to meet the patient goals. Dr. Christie is very passionate about creating natural augmentations that are proportionate to the whole body. Her extensive experience in breast revision surgery gives her a unique advantage in understanding choices that are best for long-term results.

BREAST LIFT (MASTOPEXY)

Breasts can lose their shape, volume, or elasticity due to aging, pregnancy, and weight changes. Dr. Christie says “gravity always wins!” You may start noticing your breasts sit lower, look deflated, your nipples are pointing downward, and/or you are starting to feel uncomfortable with how your breasts look in a bra. A breast lift helps reverse aging of the breast by repositioning and reshaping the breasts. For women who have also had volume loss, a breast implant may also be added for improved upper pole volume. Meticulous attention to the scars healing is a very important part of this procedure as you are often exchanging improved shape for scars. Dr. Christie employs a variety of non-surgical techniques in combination with surgery to enhance her end results!

BREAST REDUCTION

For those women with excessively large breasts causing back and neck pain, breast pain, and difficulty exercising, breast reduction can be a satisfying option. When large breasts interfere with a woman's quality of life, this procedure is often covered by insurance companies. Dr. Christie utilizes a number of unique techniques that allow repositioning of the breast on the chest to enhance torso length and create a narrow framework that appears more youthful. Dr. Christie likes to take the whole breast framework in to account. She will often perform liposuction of axilla or bra fat to further enhance results at the same time.

BREAST IMPLANT REVISION

For patients with a history of breast implants that have not aged well or need replacement, Dr. Christie specializes in implant revision surgery. Revision surgery is often complex and requires significant skill to ensure the best long term results. Common reasons for revision surgery include capsular contracture, implant malposition, double-bubble, implant rupture, wrinkling or rippling.

FAT TRANSFER TO THE BREASTS (LIPOAUGMENTATION)

Many patients want breast enhancement without implants. With improvement in fat transfer techniques, fat grafting to the breasts is now a viable option for breast augmentation. This procedure is perfect in patients who are also looking for some body lipocontouring, are stable in weight, and are willing to have a gradual transformation over time. This technique requires lipotransfer from the body to the breast and is typically performed in stages for optimal results.

BREAST SKIN TIGHTENING

With growing minimally-invasive technology, skin tightening techniques can now be applied to the breast skin. The best candidates for this procedures are patients who have a B or small C cup size, good skin quality, and suffer from droopy breasts. Larger volume breasts are not good candidates for this procedure as the weight of the breast can overcome the skin tightening technology.

NIPPLE REDUCTION

Nipples that overly protrude through clothing can make patients feel self-conscious and wear an unnecessary amount of clothing to cover their nipples. Nipple reduction is often combined with other breast procedures but can also be performed as a stand alone procedure in the office under local. This is one of the most rewarding procedures for patients who are self-conscious about large nipples. The best patient is one who has completed breast feeding as the procedure can affect ductal drainage.

NIPPLE INVERSION CORRECTION

Nipple inversion is usually due to an abnormality in breast duct protrusion as the nipple develops. Patients who do not have nipples can be as equally self-conscious as patients with prominent nipples. This procedure is a very simple procedure that is performed in the office under local and has a high satisfaction rate.
