Breast Surgery Procedures
Breast surgery at our Long Island plastic surgery practice can address a variety of issues one has with their appearance. With procedures such as breast augmentation, breast lift, and breast reconstruction, our experienced plastic cosmetic surgeons can give you a contoured, youthful, and natural appearance to the breasts that meet your individual goals. We also offer patients effective breast reduction procedures for both men and women that can take away the discomfort and embarrassment caused by overly large breasts. This guide will briefly describe some of the options available, with links to more detailed pages on each procedure. To schedule a consultation for breast surgery, please contact the Long Island Plastic Surgical Group.
Breast augmentation with implants is one of the most popular aesthetic enhancement procedures today, and is one of our most frequently performed procedures here at the Long Island Plastic Surgical Group. With the placement of silicone or saline breast implants, our plastic surgeons can add volume to the breasts for a fuller, more contoured appearance that’s more proportionate to your body frame.
Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
Many women experience a sagging in the breasts due to aging, weight loss, heredity, and other causes. However, breast lift surgery (mastopexy) can eliminate excess skin and tighten the surrounding tissue, giving the breasts a more youthful, “perky” appearance.
Overly large breasts can cause a variety of problems, including pain and discomfort, breathing problems, skeletal deformities, and feelings of self-consciousness. The experienced plastic surgeons at our Long Island practice can perform breast reduction surgery that will effectively reduce excess skin and fat for smaller breasts that are in better proportion to the rest of the body.
For women who have had a mastectomy, or those whose breasts have been affected by injury or genetic deformity, a breast reconstruction from one of our skilled plastic surgeons can recreate the breasts with results that look and feel natural and beautiful. We perform a number of breast reconstruction techniques, including Flap Reconstruction and Tissue Expansion, that can help you meet your goals.
Sometimes, women who have undergone breast surgery from other plastic surgeons are not satisfied with the ultimate results. Our cosmetic surgeons at the Long Island Plastic Surgical Group offer breast revision surgery to correct problems or dissatisfaction caused by a previous procedure.
Inverted Nipple Surgery
Inverted nipple correction surgery repositions tissue to create nipples that face outward instead of inward. This procedure can not only help with self-esteem issues in many women who are affected by the condition, but also can address problems with breastfeeding.
Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia Treatment)
Gynecomastia is a common condition in men that results in the breasts taking on an enlarged appearance. Typically beginning in adolescence, it can cause extreme self-consciousness and even depression. Male breast reduction can reduce excess fat, skin, and glandular tissue to give men a more contoured-looking chest.
