What is Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation is a common plastic surgery procedure in which implants are used to increase the size or correct the shape of the patient’s breasts. Breast augmentation can also be completed with a fat transfer, which involves moving fat from one area and purifying it before using it to augment the breast shape or size.
This procedure can increase the fullness of your breast, improve the symmetry of the breast, and enhance your self-confidence in your body image. However, a breast augmentation cannot correct severely drooping breasts. Breast augmentation can be combined with a breast lift to make the sagging breast appear fuller and lifted.
Are there different types of implants? How will I know which is right for me?
There are a variety of implants available on the market each with its own advantages. The most common types of implants include saline breast implants, silicone breast implants, and gummy bear breast implants. During your consultation, it is important to state your goals for the procedure and expectations so that we can determine the right implant for you and your needs
What does the procedure involve?
Breast augmentations are typically considered outpatient procedures and are performed under general anesthesia for patient comfort. To insert the implant, your surgeon will make an incision either in the crease under your breast, near your underarm, or around your nipple. Incisions are made in inconspicuous areas to minimize scarring; the location of the incisions will depend on your desired outcomes.
Your surgeon will then create a pocket by separating the tissue of your breast from your chest muscles and tissue. Your implants will be placed inside these pockets and centred inside your breasts. If you’ve opted for saline implants, the surgeon will then fill them with sterile saline solution once the shell has been implanted properly. Once the implants are secured, the incisions will be sutured, and the area bandaged with surgical tape and compression garments.
What is the recovery like from a breast augmentation?
Soreness, swelling, and bruising are common patient experiences following the procedure. Compression garments will be used to help minimize swelling and support your breast while they heal. It is important that you take it easy until you have permission from your surgeon to increase your activity. Your surgeon will let you know when you can begin regular activities or return to work. It is important to follow those increases and avoid raising your blood pressure and pulse.
What results can I expect? How long will they last?
A breast augmentation yields immediate results following a procedure, but the results may not be visible until the swelling subsides, and your body heals fully. Scarring is possible and though they should fade significantly, scars do not always disappear.
It is important to note that while results are long-lasting, implants are not guaranteed to last forever. Over time, your breast size and shape can change due to ageing, weight fluctuations, hormonal factors, and gravity. It is common for patients to undergo breast lifts in the future or have an implant exchange to restore a more youthful contour after some time.

Breast Reduction Surgery
Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammaplasty, is a procedure to remove excess breast fat, glandular tissue, and skin. This procedure will help you to achieve a breast size that is proportionate to the rest of your body. Large breasts can cause extreme discomfort. They can also cause health, emotional, and self-image problems. These are the main reasons why women receive breast reduction surgery. You can also combine breast reduction surgery with liposuction. We are proud to provide services to help women achieve their optimal level of comfort and confidence, including breast reduction surgery.
What happens during the procedure?
During the procedure, we will first administer anesthesia to keep you comfortable. Next, we will make an incision by using a circular pattern around the areola. Although the incision lines will remain a scar, we will conceal them and do everything that we can to make the incision minimal. After that, we will reposition your nipple and reduce the areola by using excised skin at the perimeter. The underlying breast tissue that you have will decrease in size, be lifted, and reshaped. After this is complete, we will close the incision.
Will my insurance cover the cost?
Many health insurance plans will cover the cost of breast reduction surgery. During your consultation, our knowledgeable staff will take some time to speak to you about your insurance coverage. Once we obtain insurance information, you can schedule your surgery.
What can I expect after surgery?
After your surgery, you will immediately begin to live a full and active life. The emotional and physical discomfort, as well as the self-consciousness that may have been holding you back before the surgery, will now be gone! Our entire staff will work hard to give you the results that you are seeking. Our office is always clean and calming to put you at ease. We are always happy to answer any questions.
If you have any questions regarding breast reduction surgery or would like to schedule a consultation, please call us today.
Scarless Breast Lift
A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, is a surgical procedure performed to reshape and raise the breasts to give them a firmer, fuller, and rounder appearance. As women age, their breasts begin to lose elasticity and firmness. Pregnancy, breastfeeding, and fluctuations in weight can also accentuate this process causing many women to seek options to restore firmness to their bosom.
Which is better, a surgical or non-surgical breast lift?
Traditional surgical breast lifts, though common and effective, may leave minimal scarring from the incision that may remain even after several weeks of recovery. Though many women are okay with this potential side effect, some may be more hesitant. We are pleased to offer a scarless breast lift that is scalpel-free and provides the benefits of traditional lifts without the risk of surgical complications or long recovery times.
What is a scarless breast lift?
A scarless breast lift is a minimally invasive procedure that uses radiofrequency energy (RF) to tighten the tissues beneath the skin’s surface for a subtle and natural lift.
What happens during the procedure? Before the procedure, a local anesthetic is administered for patient comfort. A small cannula is inserted into the breast and used with an external electrode to produce a gentle RF current that causes the tissue and fat cells to tighten firming and raising the breast. This procedure also stimulates the body to produce more collagen and elastin so the patient can achieve firmer, fuller, and more youthful-looking breasts.
How long will the procedure last?
This procedure may take anywhere from 1-3 hours depending on the size of the breast and desired results.
What are the benefits of a scarless breast lift?
- Fast recovery
- Firmer, fuller breasts
- Minimally invasive
- Raises and lifts breasts without scarring
- Stimulates collagen production
- Tightens sagging skin
Am I a candidate?
Not all patients are good candidates for a scarless breast lift. The ideal candidate is a patient who wants a lifting effect without undergoing surgery. It is not ideal for those who wish to add volume to their breast or have a history of breast cancer.
What can I expect during recovery? When will I see the results?
The scarless breast lift is an outpatient procedure meaning patients are able to return home the same day. We recommend patients set at least two days aside for resting and recovering. After the procedure, you may experience some mild swelling, tenderness, soreness, and bruising. These symptoms should resolve within several days. Most patients can return to their normal routine within a week. We advise patients to avoid exercising or strenuous activities for one week following the procedure.
Patients should also support their breasts following the procedure using a tight sports bra or compression bandages as directed in their after-care instructions. Most patients notice results following one treatment. The results will continue to improve for up to one year after treatment as the body continues to stimulate collagen production in the breast.
Some patients, depending on their goals, may require additional sessions to achieve their desired result. Many women may also wish to combine the procedure with a breast augmentation for a fuller look. During your initial consultation, we will work with you to determine the right treatment plan based on your body and your aesthetic goals.

Male Breast Reduction
There are many reasons why men might find themselves in our office, but one of the more common reasons is the desire for male breast reduction. Gynecomastia is a condition that affects men and young boys that occurs when the breasts swell and become abnormally large. Up to seventy percent of boys and sixty-five percent of men are affected by this condition. Although it is typically not a health threat, it can cause males to be self-conscious about their bodies.
In some men, gynecomastia can be a sign of low testosterone, cirrhosis of the liver, an overactive thyroid, or even some cancers. Certain medications can also cause gynecomastia. Gynecomastia in young boys is often the result of a rapid change in hormone levels associated with puberty. Fortunately, our specialists are able to help patients dealing with gynecomastia so that they can achieve the results they desire. We will be happy to sit down with you during a private consultation to speak about your goals and answer any questions that you have about the surgery and recovery process.
On the day of surgery, you will be placed under anesthesia for your comfort during the procedure. If the gynecomastia is the result of fatty tissue, liposuction alone may be used. This will require the insertion of a cannula through several small incisions. The cannula is moved back and forth to loosen excess fat, which can then be removed from the body. Excision techniques are recommended when your glandular breast tissue must be removed to correct gynecomastia.
We believe that every person should feel comfortable and confident in his or her own body, and it is our goal to help our patients achieve just that. If you have any questions regarding gynecomastia and male breast reduction surgery, contact us today.
