Breast augmentation is a procedure designed to improve the proportions of the breasts through implants. With a range of implant types and sizes to choose from, this highly popular cosmetic surgery can add volume and/or balance asymmetry for more noticeable breast contours and an improved silhouette. Depending on your cosmetic goals, breast augmentation is often combined with breast lift surgery to correct the look of sag in conjunction with enhancing breast fullness.
Also commonly referred to as breast augmentation mastopexy, a breast lift is pursued to elevate the breasts to a more youthful positioning and minimize the appearance of sag. An array of internal and external factors can cause a downward migration of the breasts over time, including gravity, pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuation, and the natural aging process. For the right surgical candidate, a breast lift can improve the shape, positioning, and projection of the breasts for a more rejuvenated aesthetic.
Breast reconstruction can be a powerful procedure for individuals who wish to achieve a normal breast appearance after a unilateral or bilateral mastectomy. This surgery is designed to lessen the emotional impact of cancer removal surgery by rebuilding one or both breasts for as close to a natural breast as possible. A number of advanced reconstruction techniques can be utilized during this surgery, including implant placement and tissue flap transfer.
For women who would like to achieve a more proportionate breast appearance in relation to their figure, breast reduction has helped countless women alleviate the physical burdens of overly large breasts. The procedure is designed to remove redundant breast tissue and reshape the breasts for a more manageable breast size. Depending on your goals for surgery, breast reduction can typically diminish body pain, postural difficulty, labored breathing, and other debilitating symptoms often caused by heavy breasts.
Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia Treatment)
Visible breasts in men can cause a range of psychological and emotional struggles, such as decreased confidence, insecurity, and embarrassment during social or intimate situations. If you are affected by gynecomastia, a condition characterized by enlarged male breast tissue, Dr. Ayala can flatten the chest contours and restore your ability to live uninhibited by the appearance of male breasts.
