Implants and muscle flaps are used for reconstructive breast procedures, typically achieved through several plastic surgery techniques. Results are highly variable and while reconstruction can effectively rebuild the breast, it will not have the same sensation and feel.
Typically performed in women who are experiencing physical pain and discomfort, breast reduction surgery removes excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin. Reduction helps improve the size and shape of the breast, as well as helps alleviate the discomfort associated with large breasts.
A condition that affects an estimated 40 to 60% of men, gynecomastia can be treated with breast reduction surgery. The procedure removes excess fat and glandular tissue, resulting in a more flatter and firmer chest.
Saline or silicone implants are used for cosmetic breast augmentation procedures. Breast augmentation increases fullness of the breast and can improve balance in a woman's figure.
Procedure that raises the breasts, removes excess skin and tightens the surrounding tissue.
