If you are looking to improve the size, shape, or fullness of your breasts, then breast augmentation surgery may be right for you. Many women look to enhance their breasts with an augmentation whether they have always been unhappy with the small size of their breasts or have lost volume after pregnancy or weight loss. With breast augmentation surgery, your board-certified plastic surgeon will place breast implants (either saline implants or silicone gel implants) to give added size, volume, and shape to your breasts making them more proportionate to your body.Read More About Breast Augmentation
As we age, our skin begins to sag, our tissues weaken, and gravity does the rest. For women, this can be very apparent in the breasts. If you have sagging or drooping breasts, or if your nipples point downward, breast lift surgery can help. A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a cosmetic procedure in which sagging breasts are tightened and lifted to a perkier and more youthful position while maintaining the same cup size. Additionally, any breast asymmetry can be corrected so that you will have a more balanced appearance. You can either have a breast lift as a standalone procedure or combine it with other breast procedures.Read More About Breast Lift
Women with overly large breasts can feel self-conscious about their breasts, or their heavy breasts can cause pain and irritation (back pain or chafing skin). Breast reduction surgery is a plastic surgery procedure that reduces the size of the breasts by removing excess fat and tissue to give you smaller, more proportioned breasts. This technique is combined with a breast lift to tighten the remaining tissues for a more youthful, perkier appearance.Read More About Breast Reduction
Breast Implant Exchange
Most breast implants last 10 to 20 years before they need to be replaced. If your current breast implants develop a complication or if you are unsatisfied with their aesthetic appearance (too large or too small), then a breast implant exchange is the procedure you’re looking for. You can choose to replace your implants with either saline or silicone implants or have your current implants removed completely. This procedure is commonly performed alongside other breast enhancement techniques like breast lift surgery.Read More About Breast Implant Exchange
If you have undergone a cancer-related mastectomy, then breast reconstruction surgery can help you regain a more natural body appearance, along with more confidence in the way you look. After your breast reconstruction, you will be able to look and feel more like your normal self. There are many techniques used during this process, and a one-on-one consultation (including a consultation with your oncologist) is necessary.Read More About Breast Reconstruction
Male Breast Reduction
Men who suffer from gynecomastia — the overdevelopment or enlargement of male breasts — can have male breast reduction surgery to give them a more masculine and contoured chest aesthetic. This technique is performed using liposuction, surgical excision, or a combination of both to remove excess fat and tissue. After undergoing male breast reduction surgery, men can feel more confident in their appearance.Click Here to Read More
ALCL and Textured Implant
Particular textured implants from a previous breast augmentation surgery may carry a higher risk of developing BIA-ALCL (breast implant-associated anaplastic large-cell lymphoma). Although very rare, ALCL is a form of lymphoma that develops in the capsule that is formed around the breast implant. If you have textured implants, then it is important to be aware of potential ALCL symptoms and be on the lookout. While it is not required or recommended to remove and replace healthy implants, it is wise to know your options. BIA-ALCL is very treatable when diagnosed early and may only require the removal of the implants.
