Breast Procedures


Breast augmentation surgery (also known as breast enlargement, mammoplasty enlargement, augmentation mammoplasty) is a procedure that can enlarge small breasts or restore breast volume lost after having children. It is also an opportunity to create a more balanced or proportionate figure. Breast implants (silicone shells filled with either saline solution or silicone gel) are surgically inserted beneath the chest wall. Technological advancements in procedures and implants have made breast augmentation safer, more popular and more natural looking than ever.


A breast lift (also known as a mastopexy) is an ideal procedure for women whose breasts have begun to sag or lose their shape as a result of pregnancy, gravity or weight loss. By removing excess skin and lifting the nipples, breasts appear more full and have a more youthful shape.


Breast reduction (also known as reduction mammoplasty) surgery offers a solution to many of the cosmetic and medical problems caused by large, sagging breasts. The surgeon removes excess skin and breast tissue and sculpts the remaining tissue into a smaller, more flattering shape. Breast reduction can give women with large breasts relief from physical and emotional discomfort.


Breast reconstruction is used to create a breast that is similar in appearance to the breast that was removed (a mastectomy). This can be performed immediately following a mastectomy, or years later, if so desired. Current federal legislation requires health insurers to cover the cost of these procedures.

Many women have significant differences in the size and shape of their breasts, which can often create emotional and social distress. Breast reconstruction can help provide better breast symmetry, thus allowing a greater sense of physical balance.
