Dr. Worthing is one of Texas' top breast plastic surgeons. For years, he has been on the cutting edge of artistic technique as well as product knowledge in this specific area of his industry. Dr. Worthing performs hundreds of successful breast augmentation surgeries per year, sometimes adding several sizes to the natural contour of the breast for a dramatic change and sometimes adding just one size for a subtle change. Yet not all women want to enlarge their breast. Many turn to Dr. Worthing to reduce their breast size, lift their sagging breasts or to even out asymmetrical breasts.
Women want bigger breasts for a variety of reasons. Large full breasts are typically thought of as voluptuous and enviable. More often, women want their breasts be in proportion to the rest of their body. They want their clothes to hang well on their bodies. They want their breasts to be perky the way they were before age and gravity set in. These can be the same reasons to have a breast reduction and lift. A breast reduction removes fat and excess skin from the breast, making them firmer and lighter. This surgery as well as reconstructive surgery and breast lift surgery may involve repositioning the nipple to a higher more natural location.
Dr. Worthing uses FDA approved saline-filled implants. The implants are usually placed under the pectoral chest muscles placing the scar delicately in the line of the breast where it is least noticeable. By far the most popular of all cosmetic procedures available, this surgery takes approximately two hours and with a two hour recovery.
For patients interested in removing breast implants due to shoulder and back pain or breast pain, these surgeries may be considered corrective and covered by insurance.
Dr. Worthing is one of the most accredited plastic surgeons in the field of breast "explantation". He served as expert witness in many cases filed against Dow Chemical after the FDA ruled that silicone would be made unavailable for breast implants in 1992. Breast implants are sometimes removed today due to pain as a result of scar tissue.
