Types of Breast Enhancements Procedures

We offer a range of breast enhancement procedures to help you feel good about yourself. 

Breast Augmentation

Many things decrease your breast size, such as pregnancy, genetics, significant weight gain or loss, and aging. Breast augmentation, also known as mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure that increases the size of your breasts. This is achieved by placing breast implants underneath the breast tissue or the chest muscle. There are various types of implants that provide different results.

Silicone Gel Implants

Silicone gel breast implants consist of a silicone shell filled with silicone gel. The gel mimics the natural feel of breast tissue to provide a more natural appearance and texture than other types of breast implants. 

Saline Implants

Saline implants are a type of breast implant consisting of a silicone shell filled with sterile saltwater (saline) solution. They are available in different sizes and shapes. They can be filled before or after they are implanted in the breast. Saline implants are ideal if you want firmer and more uniform breasts.

Autologous Implants

Autologous implants, also known as natural breast augmentation or fat transfer augmentation, are a type of breast enhancement procedure that uses your own fat cells to increase the size and improve the shape of your breasts. During the procedure, we will take fat from one area of your body, such as your thighs or abdomen. We will purify the fat before injecting it into your breasts. 

Because the fat is from your own body, this type of breast augmentation is considered a natural and safe option. Autologous implants can provide natural-looking results, but they may not be suitable for individuals who are looking for a significant increase in breast size.

Breast Lift

A breast lift, or mastopexy, can lift and reshape your breasts if they sag. It can address the effects of aging, weight loss, or pregnancy that can cause your breasts to lose their shape and firmness. 

During a breast lift, we will remove excess skin, and lift and tighten the remaining breast tissue to improve your breast contour. Your nipples and areolas may also be repositioned to a more youthful height and size. Breast lift surgery does not enlarge your breasts. However, it can give them a more youthful and perky appearance.

Breast Reduction

Breast reduction is a surgical procedure designed to remove excess breast tissue, fat, and skin to reduce the size of the breasts. It can alleviate physical discomfort and emotional distress associated with breasts that are overly large and heavy. Large breasts can cause back pain, neck pain, skin irritation, and difficulties with physical activity. 

During a breast reduction surgery, we will remove excess breast tissue and loose skin and reshape the remaining breast tissue to create a more proportionate breast size. The nipple and areola are also repositioned to a more natural height and size. 

Breast Reconstruction

Breast reconstruction is a surgical procedure designed to rebuild one or both breasts after a mastectomy or lumpectomy. These procedures are often done as a part of breast cancer treatment and aim to restore the shape, size, and symmetry of the breasts. Breast reconstruction can help restore a woman’s self-esteem and sense of femininity after a mastectomy and can greatly improve her quality of life.

Male Breast Reduction

Male breast reduction, also known as gynecomastia surgery, is a cosmetic procedure designed to reduce enlarged breast tissue. Male breast reduction surgery removes excess fat, glandular tissue, and skin from the breast area, resulting in a flatter, more masculine chest contour. 

Treatment Combinations

In addition to providing standalone procedures, we can combine certain breast enhancement surgeries to address a patient’s unique needs. When you visit us for a consultation, we can create a personalized treatment plan to achieve your desired outcome. 

Breast Augmentation and Lift

If your breasts have lost their volume and shape, we can combine breast augmentation surgery with a breast lift to improve the shape and size of your breasts. This can provide a rounder, firmer, and larger breasts for a more youthful appearance. We can also use this combination to correct asymmetrical breasts.

Breast Reduction and Lift

Oversized breasts are more likely to sag than smaller breasts. If you would like to decrease the size of your breasts as well as make them perkier, we can combine a breast reduction procedure with a breast lift. This will provide an overall transformation, leaving you with a comfortable breast size and shape.
