Many women come to us to have their breast size altered. Having a more proportioned figure can help you feel better about how you present yourself to the world and can change the way you move about in the world, confidently versus uncomfortably self-conscious.

Breast Reduction

Large breasts can lead to issues such as back pain, chafing, and rashes in skin folds and can be frustrating when looking to expand your wardrobe. More women are requesting breast reduction surgery (reduction mammaplasty) to remove excess breast fat, tissue and skin. It helps women gain a proportionate breast size while relieving discomfort from carrying around large breasts.

Heavy breasts for your body size don’t just lead to physical pain but emotional distress as well. Overly voluptuous breasts make physical activities harder and your back, causing stress and making your day-to-day life unnecessarily difficult. So whether you want to change your quality of life with the help of breast reduction for medical or aesthetic reasons, our plastic surgery team is here to help!

After having a successful breast reduction, you can look forward to feeling more confident, knowing that your reduction results will be long-lasting and no longer will you have the pain and physical limitations you had before the surgery. Your clothes will flatter your figure as your silhouette is properly proportioned, so you can feel excited about dressing up. To maintain your beautiful results, avoid putting on excess weight as you age, and gravity does its thing.

Breast Augmentation

Many women choose to undergo augmentation mammoplasty, commonly called a “boob job.” It boosts their breast size with the help of breast implants (or a fat transfer) that plumps up their bust. It is also popular for women who have lost excess weight in their breasts and bodies. Having breast augmentation can reshape your bust to look more rounded and asymmetrical. While many women have this procedure done for aesthetic reasons, it is common to have one after undergoing a mastectomy for health reasons or after an injury.

You might make a good candidate to undergo breast augmentation if you do this for yourself and not to please someone else. To ensure your satisfaction with your results, you need to be healthy and not currently pregnant or breastfeeding. Your expectations need to be realistic while desiring bigger breasts.

Breast implants can be made from saline (sterile saltwater), structured saline breast implants that feel natural, silicone implants made of silicone gel, or “gummy bear” breast implants that keep their shape even if the “shell” somehow breaks. You can count on your incision lines to fade with time and your scarring to be minimal. If your breasts are drooping, asymmetrical, or have a long shape, breast augmentation can help you look and feel better about your bustline!

From Consultation to Recovery

No matter which breast surgery option you determine for yourself, you need to be forthright with our plastic surgeon about your reasons for choosing the surgery and be committed to following the after-surgery protocols. It will help ensure the most successful and long-term results from start to finish.

During your consultation, we will review your family history, medical history, drug allergies, current medications, and substance use (alcohol, tobacco, and other drugs). Our plastic surgeon will assess your health and risk factors and evaluate your breast size, shape, skin quality, and nipple location. We will also take “before” pictures, and our doctor will review your options and make recommendations.

If you want changes to your body with plastic surgery, we invite you to call and schedule a consultation! You deserve to look and feel your best every day!
