The goal of most cosmetic breast surgeries is to create or restore a pleasing breast proportion relative to the rest of your body. Whether the choice is for reduction, enhancement, reshaping or reconstruction after surgery, restoring self-confidence and self-esteem is central to this facet of plastic surgery.

Breast Augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a cosmetic procedure that increases the size of the breast through the use of a breast implant.
We perform breast enlargement for several types of patients: those who have lost breast size due to having children, those who have lost a significant amount of weight. those who simply want to have larger breasts.
The breast lift procedure (mastopexy) is a cosmetic procedure that repositions the nipple and breast to a higher, more youthful position on the chest wall. Breast lift surgery is often performed for patients who have developed drooping of the breasts after breastfeeding or pregnancy. Also, this procedure may be beneficial for patients who have experienced loss of breast volume and drooping of the breasts after significant weight loss.
Many men may feel like they need to live with gynecomastia, but the plastic surgeons at Elite Plastic Surgery can perform male breast reduction, giving them back their self-esteem and confidence.
This procedure is designed to restore a more masculine appearance to the male chest, using a combination of breast tissue removal and liposuction to improve chest wall contour. The result is a flatter, firmer and more masculine-looking chest.
Breast reconstruction is a procedure to return the breasts to their normal form. It is most often performed after mastectomy but in some cases is performed for congenital problems.
Breast reconstruction can be performed at the time of the mastectomy or at a later time. Much of this depends on the specific type of breast cancer and the other treatments that might be needed (radiation, chemotherapy).
Breast reduction surgery, also known as reduction mammaplasty, involves removal of excess breast skin, fat and gland to improve the appearance of the breast and to help alleviate the symptoms associated with large breasts.
Whether the result of congenital issues, uneven growth or injury, breast deformities can be successfully corrected. No two procedures are exactly alike. Usually, a combination of implant and lift surgeries produce excellent results. Patients should discuss their goals and expectations with their surgeon to determine the best course of action.
