Breast Surgery allows patients to make lasting changes to their looks so they can enjoy their image and feel comfortable.
Breast augmentation is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic surgery procedures in the U.S. It involves using implants to fulfill your desire for fuller breasts or to restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy. Implants are silicone shells filled with either saline (salt water) or silicone gel. They are placed behind each breast, underneath either breast tissue or the chest wall muscle.
Commonly referred to as a breast lift, mastopexy surgery raises and firms the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour. Breast lift surgery does not significantly change the size of your breasts or round out the upper part of your breast.
Breast reduction surgery removes excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to achieve a breast size in proportion with your body and to alleviate the discomfort associated with overly large breasts.
Breast Reconstruction is achieved through several plastic surgery techniques that attempt to restore a great to near normal shape, appearance and size following mastectomy. Sometimes a mastectomy will not leave enough tissue to cover and support a breast implant. In these cases a flap technique or tissue expander is required. A TRAM flap uses donor muscle, fat and skin from the patient's abdomen to reconstruct the breast.
