These procedures address a wide array of concerns you may have related to your breasts, including:
You may have been born with breast characteristics you wanted to change, or they may have appeared as a result of pregnancy, weight fluctuations or aging. Whatever the cause, there is likely an aesthetic surgery that can provide that extra special enhancement of your breasts that you’ve been thinking about.
Dr. Agha has been providing breast surgery (as well as all the other cosmetic procedures he performs) at his Newport Beach private practice since 2008. He performs breast surgery routinely and possesses the qualities you should look for when choosing a surgeon:
Dr. Agha has an M.D. as well as a Ph.D. He completed medical school at the University of Cambridge in England. His residency in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery was completed at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center. He is committed to continuing education and works to be your partner in this process – providing the guidance you need while empowering you to make decisions about aesthetic surgery.
In addition to the aesthetic procedures above, Dr. Agha offers surgical services related to two chest conditions affecting men and women alike: Pectus Excavatum and Poland’s Syndrome.
Pectus Excavatum is a sunken chest. In this defect, several ribs and the sternum grow inward and produce a caved-in look to the chest wall. Of all congenital chest wall defects, pectus excavatum is the most common, appearing in 90 percent of those with a chest wall abnormality. The condition is normally noticed at birth; however, the chest’s appearance will worsen as bone development, particularly in the teen years, grows rapidly. Pectus excavatum occurs predominantly in males, and is estimated to occur in approximately 1 in 400 births. Self-esteem issues are frequently experienced with those born with pectus excavatum, particularly in teen patients.
Treatment options: Reconstructive surgery of the chest wall is an option for correcting pectus excavatum. The results of such operations are very successful and can help to give the patient a certain quality of life that he or she did not possess before. Not only does the patient experience an immediate raise in their self-esteem, but the physical improvements in breathing and stamina are immeasurable. Most individuals report an increase in ability to engage in sports and hobbies and have been able to enjoy strenuous activities that they could not in the past.
Poland’s syndrome is described as a malformation involving the under-development or complete absence of the chest muscle on one side of the body. In addition, there is often webbing of the fingers on the same side as the chest wall anomaly. Although Poland’s syndrome can affect either side, it is three times more likely on the right side of the body.
There are many physical features of Poland’s syndrome. However, the main feature is absent chest muscle on one side of the body. Other chest muscles located in proximity and on the same side may also be missing. In women, the nipple and breast on that side may also be totally absent. For both sexes, the fingers will display webbing of various degrees and will be shortened. There may also be absence of the underarm hair on the affected side.
Poland’s syndrome is listed as a rare disease by the US National Institutes of Health. It is not hereditary, and for reasons not yet understood by medical professionals, it is more frequent in men than women.
Treatment: Today, the outcome for those born with Poland’s syndrome is excellent. For many, Dr. Agha will reconstruct the breast, nipple, and can utilize the existing muscles to rebuild the chest. If there is not enough muscles present for rebuilding, results can be obtained by taking muscle from other parts of the body. If reconstructive surgery is attempted, it can be performed as early as the age of 13 for boys, but should be postponed until breast development is complete in girls.
Dr. Agha learns about the changes you want to make to your breasts during a consultation at our Newport Beach practice. He examines the chest anatomy and then recommends breast surgeries that will accomplish your goals. To schedule your consultation, please contact our experienced staff at 949-644-2442.
