For those who are fortunate enough to come by beautiful breasts naturally, cosmetic surgery may seem non-essential. But for those who have spent years hunching over to conceal breasts that are too big, or wearing clothing to hide breasts that are too small, it can be life-changing to undergo cosmetic surgery such as breast augmentation. In Marin County, our board-certified plastic surgeons specialize in breast surgery. We see women from throughout the San Francisco Bay Area who want breast lifts, breast reduction, or breast augmentation at our Greenbrae surgical center. Cosmetic surgery can offer a range of solutions to address these concerns, and it can bring new hope to those requiring Breast Reconstruction. Reconstruction following cancer or injury is the triumph of all surgeons who provide it.
Plastic Surgery Specialists is proud to offer men and women both expertise and artistry in performing every kind of cosmetic surgery on the breasts. Our surgeons are particularly gratified to be very active in Breast Reconstruction and to regularly serve as an integral part of response teams that include oncology specialists and general surgeons.
We offer the following cosmetic procedures for the breasts:
Breast Augmentation (also known as Augmentation Mammaplasty) is a highly individualized procedure whereby breast implants are used to increase breast volume and/or change the shape of the breasts. PSS’s Vectra® 3D Imager allows patients to explore options—not on models but on their own image—to achieve specific results. New technologies, including injections with one’s own body fat, mean smaller and less conspicuous incisions and faster recovery times.
The Breast Lift (or Mastopexy) changes the aspect of the breasts by lifting them into a more youthful position and reshaping the breast tissue. As in the case of Breast Augmentation, PSS's Vectra® 3D imaging ensures that lifting and reshaping is patient-specific. Breast Lift results are long-lasting for patients who maintain good health practices and avoid significant weight fluctuations.
Breast Reduction is a procedure that removes fat, glandular tissue and skin from the breasts, rendering them smaller, firmer and lighter. Not only does Breast Reduction provide the opportunity for patients to have breasts that are in proportion to their overall body size, but it also eliminates neck and back (and other) problems that are associated with overly large breasts.
Breast Revision is a procedure to correct complications having to do with breast implants. This can mean removing, repositioning or replacing existing implants.
Male Breast Reduction is a procedure to countermand Gynecomastia, the abnormal overdevelopment of mammary glands in men. Whether the result of medical conditions, heredity or simply aesthetic factors, Gynecomastia can be psychologically debilitating for those who suffer from it. The Male Breast Reduction procedure, which removes excess fatty tissue and tightens skin, is an appropriate and increasingly popular response.
PSS welcomes the opportunity to consult with clients and potential clients to address their concerns about their aesthetic goals, the procedures that best correspond to them, recovery details, and other relevant factors. The individual and collective scholarship and experience of the surgeons and aestheticians on the PSS team render them a top choice for those in the San Francisco, Marin County area and beyond.
