Breast surgery today is as diverse in procedures and outcomes as women are in their appearance. Surgeries range from reducing large breasts and enhancing small breasts to lifting sagging breasts or restoring breasts lost to disease or trauma. Even though not all women define themselves by the breasts they were born with - many others do and they come to Dr. Lettieri because they are unhappy with the size, shape or position of their breasts. Others choose to have reconstructive surgery because they need it. But, breast surgery involves more than just a physical change – it is also highly emotional and dramatically fulfilling to most women. The goal in any breast surgery is to achieve a natural looking, proportional, balanced outcome. This requires knowledge, skill and expertise.
Dr. Lettieri is an expert in all surgeries of the breast and is well known for his skill in creating beautiful breasts.
BREAST AUGMENTATION: Dr. Lettieri employs varying implant shapes and sizes to enhance the overall width, projection and shape of a breast – and often helps to improve cleavage.
REVISIONAL SURGERY: Dr. Lettieri performs revisional breast surgeries to correct – improve - enhance the following: previous breast augmentation, previous breast reconstruction and capsular contracture.
BREAST RECONSTRUCTION: Dr. Lettieri performs the following: prophylactic mastectomy and immediate reconstruction.
Dr. Lettieri is the only surgeon in South Carolina who can offer his patients the Allergan Inamed style 410 cohesive gel implant and one of a select few that can offer the Mentor CPG cohesive gel. In addition to achieving a natural shape and feel - these implants are more durable, longer lasting and offer a very distinct advantage to post mastectomy reconstruction patients and to those having preventive mastectomy. These implants can be used for Breast Augmentation, Breast Reconstruction and Breast Revision Surgery. These are a great option for women who love the look and feel of silicone and who need to replace their old silicone implants. These implants are the most advanced devices on the market today.
