Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that involves inserting silicone or saline breast implants to enhance the size, projection, and symmetry of the breasts. It can be performed to enhance breast volume or to restore lost breast volume due to aging, pregnancy, or weight loss.

Breast Implant Removal

Breast implant removal is performed to remove breast implants after a breast augmentation procedure. This may be done for various reasons, including implant-related complications (such as capsular contracture or implant rupture), dissatisfaction with the results of breast augmentation, or personal preference to remove the implants.

Breast Lift

Breast lift, also known as mastopexy, involves lifting and reshaping the breasts to improve their position, shape, firmness, symmetry, and overall appearance. It is commonly done to address breast sagging caused by aging, pregnancy, breastfeeding, or weight loss. It may also be performed in combination with nipple correction surgery to change the size and projection of the nipples.

Breast Reconstruction

Breast reconstruction is usually part of cancer treatment and involves recreating the breast mound after partial or complete removal of the breast due to breast cancer or other medical conditions. It can be done using various techniques, including implants, tissue expanders, and autologous tissue (flap) reconstruction. It can be performed immediately following mastectomy or after time has passed.

Breast Reduction

Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammoplasty, involves removing excess breast tissue and reshaping the breasts to reduce their size, alleviate discomfort, and improve their proportion to the rest of the body. It is commonly performed for women with disproportionately large breasts that cause physical discomfort or emotional distress.

Burn Reconstruction

Burn reconstruction is a surgical procedure that involves restoring the form and function of the skin and underlying tissues that have been damaged by burns. Burns can lead to disfigurement, as well as deformities or underdevelopment of the breasts among teenage girls. Burn reconstruction may involve skin grafts, tissue expansion, or other techniques to repair and reconstruct the affected area.

Free Flap Breast Reconstruction

Free flap breast reconstruction is a complex surgical technique that involves using tissue from another part of the body—typically the abdomen, buttocks, or thighs—to reconstruct a breast mound after a mastectomy. The tissue is detached from its original blood supply and reconnected to blood vessels in the chest using microsurgery techniques.


Gynecomastia is a condition characterized by the enlargement of male breast tissue. It may be caused by a hormonal imbalance, medications, recreational drugs, genetics, or other medical conditions. Gynecomastia can be treated with male breast reduction to remove excess breast tissue and restore more masculine chest contours.

Tram Flap Breast Reconstruction

Tram flap breast reconsutrction is another surgical breast reconstruction technique and involves using a section of abdominal tissue, including skin, fat, and muscle, to reconstruct a breast mound. The tissue is transferred to the chest while remaining attached to its original blood supply, and it is used to recreate a natural-looking breast shape and contours.

Good Candidates for Breast Procedures

You have to be in good overall health to be an ideal candidate for breast procedures, with the exception of patients undergoing cancer treatment. It is important to have a positive outlook and realistic expectations before undergoing any type of breast surgery. You should be a non-smoker or willing to quit weeks before the surgery.

Your Consultation

To determine if you are eligible for breast procedures, a physical examination will be performed. Your breast shape, size, and projection will be assessed in order to come up with a surgical plan. A review of your medical history will take place to assess any risk factors or contraindications.

Cost of Breast Procedures

The cost of breast procedures varies on a case-to-case basis. The overall price may be impacted by a number of factors, including complexity of procedure, type of surgery being performed, and anesthesia fees. For procedures that are part of cancer treatment, these are usually covered by insurance.
