Unhappy with the size or shape of your breasts? Breast implant surgery or augmentation using your own fat transferred from another area on your body may be the best solution for you. There are several different types of implants including saline, silicone and ‘gummy bear’ implants and our team will be happy to help you decide which is best for you during your consultation appointment.
Over the years the structure and volume of breasts naturally change due to aging, genetics, gaining or losing weight, childbirth and nursing. A breast lift can tighten and remove excess skin and raise and firm the breasts. Breast lifts can also be performed with an implant or fat transfer augmentation in order to increase the size, alter the shape and firm the breasts all in one surgical procedure.
Deciding to undergo a breast reduction procedure is more than just about aesthetics for many women. Years of back, neck and shoulder pain along with headaches, rashes and trouble finding bras and tops that fit correctly can take their toll physically and emotionally. During breast reduction surgery, we remove excess fat, gland tissue and skin as needed to achieve a breast size that is more proportional to your body.
Breast reduction surgery is not just for women. Many men experience something called gyneomastia, or enlargement or swelling of breast tissue in males. It can be caused by hormones, heredity, obesity and even because of some medications. Breast reduction surgery for men can include reducing the breast size and flattening and enhancing the chest area.
