Breast Surgery Procedures

The term “breast surgery” includes a variety of surgical procedures that are designed to lift, firm, reshape, enlarge, or enhance a patient’s breasts. Breast augmentation, breast reconstruction, male breast reduction (gynecomastia), and breast lift procedures all fall under the blanket of breast enhancement. The term “breast enhancement” is also a generalized term for procedures such as the removal or exchange of breast implants, breast reduction surgeries, and breast surgery corrections.

BREAST AUGMENTATION

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure designed to enlarge the breasts via insertion of silicone or saline implants inside the breast tissue. It is a safe, effective procedure and one of the most common cosmetic surgeries performed in the U.S.

BREAST LIFT

Breast lift surgery, also known as mastopexy, is done to improve the appearance of sagging breasts. The results, while generally long-lasting, may be affected in the future by any pregnancies and the natural aging process.

BREAST REDUCTION

Breast reduction, or mammaplasty, is the surgical procedure to reduce the size and volume of the breasts. The size is reduced while fullness and weight is reshaped to present a more youthful appearance.

BREAST RECONSTRUCTION

Breast reconstruction is a procedure used to recreate natural-looking breasts for women who have had their own natural breasts removed due to cancer, injury, or other medical issues. The goal of breast reconstruction is to restore the appearance, shape, and size of the breasts to resemble the patient’s natural body as closely as possible.

BREAST IMPLANT REMOVAL

Gynecomastia is breast reduction surgery for males. This procedure is becoming increasingly common as men are looking for a tighter, more sculpted, and masculine chest appearance. During the procedure, excessive breast tissue is removed through liposuction or surgery.

GYNOCOMASTIA

Gynecomastia is breast reduction surgery for males. This procedure is becoming increasingly common as men are looking for a tighter, more sculpted, and masculine chest appearance. During the procedure, excessive breast tissue is removed through liposuction or surgery.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is an ideal candidate?

Anyone looking to improve the size, shape, and appearance of their breasts or chest may be an ideal candidate for breast enhancement procedures. Patients should be in good health, and ideally over the age of 17 so breast development has finished. Women who have experienced a decrease in cup size after breastfeeding, weight loss, or the effects of natural aging may be excellent candidates.
