Enlargement – Augmentation Mammaplasty

Natrelle Breast Implants

Breast augmentation plastic surgery is one of the most common procedures performed annually by board certified plastic surgeons. Women may choose to undergo breast enlargement surgery for various reasons. These personal reasons may center around breasts that are perceived to be under developed, or because of differences in the sizes of the breasts, or from changes after pregnancy or breast feeding. Some women may be happy with their breasts but just want them to be more full. Often after weight loss, aging, or childbirth, a woman's breast volume and shape may change. This too can lead a woman to seek a breast augmentation. Breast implant surgery is the most popular way to improve breast shape and size. Breast enhancement using breast implants can give a woman more proportional shape and may even improve self-esteem. Read more »

The weight of excess breast tissue can impair your ability to lead an active life. The emotional discomfort and self-consciousness often associated with having large pendulous breast is a as important an issue to many women as the physical discomfort and pain. Also known as reduction mammaplasty, this procedure 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 Lift


A woman's breasts change over time, often losing their youthful shape and firmness. These changes, including loss of skin elasticity, can result from pregnancy, breast-feeding, weight fluctuations, aging, and gravity. Heredity can even be a factor. Breasts that have lost their firm, uplifted contours can affect sometimes affect a woman's self-image and confidence. If you desire to restore the firmness and shape of your breasts, then a breast lift (also known as mastopexy) may be right for you. A breast lift raises and firms the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour. Sometimes the areola (pigmented skin surrounding the nipple) has become enlarged over time, and a breast lift will reduce this as well. Our goal is to rejuvenate your figure with a breast profile that is more youthful, uplifted, and firm. Read more »

Male Breast Reduction


Gynecomastia, a condition of over-developed or enlarged breasts in men, is common in men of any age. It can be the result of hormonal changes, heredity conditions, disease, or the use of certain drugs. This condition can cause emotional discomfort and impair a man's self-confidence. Some men may even avoid certain physical activities and intimacy simply to hide their condition. Adolescents may even benefit from surgery, although secondary procedures may be needed in the future. Gynecomastia is characterized by excess localized fat, excess glandular tissue development, a combination of both excess fat and glandular tissue, and may be present in one breast (unilaterally) or in both breasts (bilaterally).

After Mastectomy

The goal of breast reconstruction is to restore the breast(s) to near normal shape, appearance, symmetry and size following mastectomy, lumpectomy, or other trauma.
