Dr. Gary F. Horn offers a variety of breast surgery options at his practice locations in London, Norwich and Brussels. Patients who are dissatisfied with the size, shape, or appearance of their breasts can contact our team to discuss the various options available. With his extensive training and experience, combined with his keen eye for aesthetics, Dr. Horn ensures each of his patients receives completely natural-looking results.
Dr. Horn offers breast augmentation to patients who desire fuller breasts for an enhanced and more feminine figure. With the use of silicone implants, Dr. Horn can increase the patient’s breasts by multiple sizes. He can recommend optimal placement of the implants, either above or below the chest muscle, which will provide the most natural look and feel. His eye for aesthetics ensures patients receive beautiful, symmetrical breasts.
Many patients choose to combine multiple procedures, such as a breast lift and augmentation, for more dramatic results.
A breast lift is ideal for patients who experience sagging in their breast tissue for any number of reasons, including pregnancy, weight loss, and age. A breast lift is a simple procedure that repositions the bust to a more youthful and perky position. Many patients choose to combine a breast lift with other procedures such as breast augmentation for an even more dramatic transformation in their appearance.
Dr. Horn performs reduction surgery for patients who have overly large breasts and often suffer physical discomfort associated with the condition. Many patients who seek treatment experience severe neck, back, or shoulder pain that can limit their mobility. During the procedure, Dr. Horn can remove excess skin and glandular tissue to reduce the breasts to a size that is more proportionate with the rest of the patient’s body. Some patients may need to combine their breast reduction with another procedure such as a breast lift to achieve their desired results.
Dr. Horn prefers silicone implants for breast augmentation or reconstruction procedures. Silicone implants provide a natural look and feel since the gel closely mimics natural breast tissue. Unlike saline implants, which Dr. Horn does not currently offer, silicone implants are not prone to rippling, which can affect the natural shape and appearance of the breast. Silicone implants are available in different shapes and textures, which allows patients to select the option that best complements their unique figure and body type.
Patients who have had one or both breasts removed in a mastectomy can seek Dr. Horn’s care for breast reconstruction. Dr. Horn can utilize several different techniques to construct a lifelike breast. Patients can choose from implant reconstruction, fat transfer, or a tranverse rectus abdominis (TRAM) flap. Reconstruction with fat transfer utilizes excess tissue from other areas of the body to reconstruct the most natural breast. The TRAM flap technique transfers tissues from the abdominal area and is often ideal for patients who need just one breast reconstructed.
