COLUMBUS, OH--(Marketwired - Apr 16, 2013) - Dr. Anne Taylor and her fellow Columbus plastic surgeons at The Ohio State University Plastic Surgery perform breast procedures as a staple of their practice. Dr. Taylor, a Clinical Assistant Professor of Surgery, says, "Spring is a great time for patients to consider breast augmentation or another breast enhancement surgery so they can be ready to show off their new look when the warmer weather of summer arrives."

According to the surgeons in the Ohio State University Department of Plastic Surgery, breast enhancement surgery can address a wide number of concerns patients may have about the appearance of their breasts. They say breast surgery can have a positive impact on a patient's entire body as well as boost the patient's self-confidence. Additionally, Dr. Taylor notes that every breast augmentation procedure performed at OSU Plastic Surgery can be individualized for each patient in order to better achieve their specific goals.

For patients who feel that their breasts make them look older and have a "saggy" appearance, the doctors at the Columbus plastic surgery practice also offer breast lift procedures. Furthermore, Dr. Taylor adds that breast implants -- often utilized in breast augmentation and breast lift procedures -- can add additional volume and fullness to the patient's breasts for more dramatic contours.

Patients who are affected by excess breast tissue and fat deposits that cause their breasts to appear too large for their body frames have the option of breast reduction surgery. Dr. Taylor also highlights that male breast reduction procedures can provide a great benefit for men who suffer from gynecomastia.

The surgeons at The Ohio State University Plastic Surgery are specialty-trained in breast enhancement surgery to perform effective procedures that yield natural-looking results. In addition to breast augmentation and breast reduction options, the OSU surgeons also maintain a renowned breast reconstruction program that caters to mastectomy patients.

Dr. Taylor notes that the process for most breast surgeries is easier than many patients originally think. For the majority of her Columbus plastic surgery patients, the postoperative healing time for breast surgery is about a month for full recovery, depending upon the individual's activity level. Additionally, she adds that most patients return to work within one week. For this reason, whether it be a breast augmentation, breast lift, or even a breast reduction, she often advises her patients to receive their breast enhancement surgery in the spring in order to be fully healed in time for summer.

At The Ohio State University's Department of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Taylor and her colleagues understand the need for patients to be comfortable and confident with the appearance of their breasts. For patients seeking to look and feel their best in time for the summer season, The Ohio State University's team of plastic surgeons say they look forward to providing effective treatment options and successful, long-lasting results.
