Breast Augmentation

Also known as augmentation mammaplasty, breast augmentation involves using implants to fulfill your desire for fuller breasts or to restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy. Breast Augmentation can enhance one's appearance and help build self-confidence and self esteem.

If you are dissatisfied with your breast size, augmentation surgery is a choice to consider. Breast augmentation can:

  • Increase fullness and projection of your breasts
  • Improve the balance of your figure
  • Enhance your self-image and self-confidence

Implants also may be used to reconstruct a breast after mastectomy or injury.

Breast Reduction

Reduction in the size and weight of the female breast is known as reduction mammoplasty. This surgery removes some of the breast tissue, relocates the nipple to a more youthful position, and improves the shape and position. This will make the breast smaller, more compact, and give the breast a lift. Frequently, the areola (dark skin around the nipple) is also made smaller. Functional symptoms (medical disorders) caused by excessive breast weight may be relieved or improved by this operation.

When men or adolescent boys develop sustained breast enlargement, the condition is called gynecomastia. Gynecomastia can also be corrected by special surgical procedures. Breast reduction patient are among the most grateful patients due to the relief of painful symptoms and improved appearance. Patients also experience the ability to exercise better, to get a better fit in their clothes and many have psychological benefits.

Women who have had breast reduction surgery, and men who undergo correction of gynecomastia, are advocates for others to consider this reconstructive surgery.

Breast Lift

As time passes, pregnancy, nursing, excessive weight loss and gravity have adverse effects on women's breasts causing them to lose their elasticity, firmness, and shape and they begin to sag. A mastopexy or breast lift is a procedure that corrects this condition using a combination of removing excess breast skin and tightening the skin.

A breast lift can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence. If desired, implants may be used to restore breasts to their natural shape and size.
