Dr. Wolfe performs breast augmentation for women who are not happy with their natural breast size or whose breasts have deflated after pregnancy. For women who simply want better body proportions or more symmetrical breasts, there is no need to settle. At the Center for Cosmetic Surgery, Dr. Wolfe performs hundreds of natural-looking breast augmentation surgeries per year. In some women, implants alone create beautiful, filled-out breasts. In others, an enhancement with a breast lift (or mastopexy) is necessary to achieve an attractive, fuller shape.Breast Lift
Breast lift surgery is often performed to elevate and reshape sagging breasts and to give a perkier, more youthful appearance. Sometimes, breast implants are placed during the same surgery to create more fullness than would result from a lift alone.
The need for a breast lift is usually the result of an inflation and deflation of breast volume due to pregnancy or significant weight loss. Sometimes, merely gravity and time can cause the need for a mastopexy. And in some cases, women develop with lower, relaxed breasts and can benefit from a lifting procedure.Breast Reduction
Breast reduction surgery reduces the weight and size of breasts and can help alleviate symptoms such as back pain, neck pain and bra strap grooving. Because the reduction will lift the breast, the result is typically a smaller, more attractive breast.
The goal of breast reduction surgery is not only to relieve the patient of symptoms related to heavy breasts but also to achieve the shape and size that the patient desires. At the Center for Cosmetic Surgery in Golden, Colorado, board-certified plastic surgeons Dr. Wolfe is committed to creating aesthetically attractive breasts, not just smaller breasts.
Raised in New York by two English professors, Dr. Andrew Wolfe had academic excellence instilled in him from an early age. He attended Cornell University, where he earned a bachelor's degree in psychology. While learning about the inner workings of the human mind, he found himself gravitating more toward the physiological side of medicine. He attended medical school at the Chicago Medical School, where he engaged in a rigorous course of study that included graduate work in pathology and a Master's degree in wound healing.
Dr. Wolfe chose plastic surgery – or rather, in his words, it chose him – largely because of the diverse nature of the field that allowed him to apply his surgical skill to a variety of procedures. After receiving his medical degree, he entered Georgetown University's prestigious 6-year integrated program in plastic surgery. This residency program, which offered a rare opportunity to focus specifically on plastic surgery, allowed him to develop his craft under the tutelage of some of the most respected surgeons in the field and publish extensively on cosmetic surgery. While in residency, Dr. Wolfe was inducted into the National Medical Honor Society, Alpha Omega Alpha and received numerous other accolades.
Dr. Wolfe is a consultant and speaker for Allergan Medical, one of the two largest manufacturers of breast implants in the country. He has lectured internationally on a variety of topics, the most recent being The Allergan Academy, American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons, 2012 held in Vancouver, British Columbia.
