  • Are you considering a change in breast size? Or thinking of breast augmentation as part of a mommy makeover? You’re not alone. For many women, breast size and shape play a significant role in how they feel about themselves and their appearance. If you’re unhappy with the size and shape of your breasts, Dr. Jack Peterson can help. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Peterson is highly trained and experienced in breast augmentation procedures and can help give you the confidence boost you’re looking for through surgical breast augmentation.

    Advances in breast implant technology have made breast enlargement an increasingly popular choice for women of all ages who desire more attractive breasts, whether that means a whole new “look” or regaining a more youthful breast shape and appearance.

  • A woman’s breasts change throughout her lifetime due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations and the natural aging process. These factors can significantly impact the breasts’ profile and shape and affect how your clothes fit and how you feel about your appearance. 

    A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, can help return your breasts to a fuller, perkier and younger look. 

    Dr. Jack Peterson is a highly sought-after board-certified plastic surgeon, experienced in performing the breast lift procedure as a standalone treatment or combined with other plastic surgery procedures, including the Mommy Makeover or breast implant surgery.

  • Woman with very large breasts experience more than dissatisfaction with body image. They may also experience symptoms of back and shoulder pain, rashes, headaches or bra strap notching due to the weight of excess breast tissue. That can impair their ability to lead an active life.

    Breast reduction surgery removes excess breast fat, gland tissue and skin to achieve a breast size in proportion to your body. In general, this surgery will not only correct the functional symptoms associated with large breasts, but also result in better proportioned breasts, thus enhancing a woman’s body image and self-confidence.

    Most procedures in a plastic surgery office are considered cosmetic and not covered by insurance. A breast reduction, however, can provide real relief to patients suffering due to the large size of their breasts.  If the patient meets the criteria of their insurance carrier, this procedure may be covered by insurance.

    Patients will be on a lifting and exercise restriction of 6 weeks and wear a compression garment for 6 weeks.

Breast Implants or Augmentation

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.

Breast Lift

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.

Female Breast Reduction

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.

Male Breast Reduction

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.
