Most everyone wants to feel good about the way they look.  One way to accomplish this goal in our offices is through breast enhancement. In our Long Island plastic surgery practices, the Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Team skillfully assist patients in their quest for the right type of breast enhancement.

This helps patients to attain the right volume, shape and size for their goals and natural physique. Here, we will discuss the various procedures regularly performed in our practices.

Breast Implants

Breast implants are used when a woman wishes to increase the fullness and size of the breasts. These can be filled with either a saline solution or silicone gel. We offer implants in a variety of shapes and sizes to compliment your individual body type. This way, you can achieve the exact look that you want.

Types of Incisions

Implants are inserted into a pocket which lies behind the pectoralis muscle.  Our surgeons will consult with you to determine the best approach for implantation.  Options include insertion through the areola, the belly button, the armpit or at the breast crease.

Through breast augmentation with implants, most of our female patients report a greater degree of satisfaction with their bodies, improved self-confidence and the ability to wear clothes that were previously unflattering.

Breast Lift

Another popular treatment is the breast lift.  Breast lift surgery, or mastopexy, is suitable to restore lift to breasts that sag due to the natural loss of elasticity, firmness and shape.

Sagging breasts may be the result of pregnancy, nursing, aging and excessive weight loss; and a lift may be just what a woman needs to restore the appreciation she once felt towards her own body.

Breast lift surgery results in a more youthful appearance through the removal of excess skin, allowing for the remaining skin to have a firmer texture and shape.

In some cases, this procedure can be combined with breast augmentation (with implants or fat transfer) to restore shape and volume.  Breast lifts are often an integral part of our Mommy Makeover treatments done by our surgeons.

Breast Reduction

Just as often as breast enlargement is warranted, breast reduction can also be performed.  Excessively large breasts cause neck, back and shoulder pain at the very least; and may also cause a loss in self-confidence due to the inability to wear clothing that flatters the figure.

Breast reduction surgery corrects these issues by removing fatty tissue and excess skin; resulting in a naturally beautiful shape and a volume that is more appropriate for the patient’s overall stature and physique.

Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)

Breast reduction surgery is not reserved for women only.  Men with gynecomastia, excessive male breast tissue, may benefit greatly from surgical removal of fatty and glandular tissue. Getting rid of man boobs is something to really smile about!
