Breast Enhancement Procedures
- Breast Augmentation (Breast Implants)
Women who choose to enlarge their natural breasts with implants may do so to improve their confidence, to make the size of their breasts more proportionate to their body, or to restore breast volume that has been lost due to significant weight loss, aging, or after child birth. Dr. Mentis offers both saline and silicone breast implants (both approved by the FDA). She will help you choose what type and size of implant is right for you.
Mastopexy (Breast Lift)
Most women notice a difference in the size and shape of their breasts as they age, which can be attributed to pregnancy, breastfeeding, or gravity. When skin loses its elasticity, the breasts can lose shape and firmness and take on a droopy appearance. A breast lift can help restore a more youthful appearance by raising and reshaping the breasts. A breast lift can also reduce areolar size and reposition the nipples.
- Reduction Mammaplasty (Breast Reduction)
Women seeking a breast reduction typically do so because their naturally large breasts cause back pain, neck pain, improper posture, rashes, interference with physical activity, and low self-esteem. Breast reduction is a surgical procedure that removes fat, glandular tissue, and skin from the breasts, making them smaller, lighter, and firmer. It can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple.
- Gynecomastia (Male Breast Reduction)
Breast reduction for men involves removing excess breast tissue and fatty tissue underneath and surrounding the nipple area. This can be done with liposuction alone or in combination with traditional incisional surgery.
