Procedures We Offer
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.
This is a highly individualized procedure whereby breast implants are used to increase breast volume or and change the shape of the breasts. The VECTRA® 3D imaging system we use allows patients to explore options — not on models but on their own image — to achieve specific results. New technologies, including injections with your own body fat, mean smaller and less conspicuous incisions and faster recovery times.
This procedure lifts breasts into a more youthful position and reshapes the breast tissue without increasing the breast size. As with breast augmentation, our 3D imaging ensures that lifting and reshaping is specific to each patient's needs. Breast lift results are long-lasting for patients who maintain a healthy lifestyle and avoid significant weight fluctuations.
By removing fat, glandular tissue, and skin, our surgeons create smaller, firmer, and lighter breasts. Not only does breast reduction provide the opportunity for patients to have breasts that are in proportion to their overall body size, it can also eliminate neck and back pain and other problems associated with overly large breasts.
Correcting complications associated with breast implants can mean removing, repositioning, or replacing existing implants. Many revision patients simply want to exchange their older implants and have experienced no complications.
Our surgeons specialize in male breast reduction surgery to treat gynecomastia, the abnormal overdevelopment of mammary glands in men. Whether due to heredity or a medical condition, gynecomastia can undermine self-esteem. The male breast reduction procedure, which removes excess fatty tissue and tightens skin, is an appropriate and increasingly popular treatment.
