Breast Procedures Newport Beach

Breast augmentation is one of the most common aesthetic breast procedures performed by plastic surgeons. Using implants, the size of the breast is increased. Breast augmentation can be performed alone or with a breast lift or mastopexy to create a more youthful appearance by removing excess skin and raising the nipple areolar complex to the level of the inframammary crease. A breast lift can also be done by itself if the breast volume is already adequate.

After mastectomy, breast reconstruction is done to reconstruct the breasts using either tissue expanders and implants or one’s own tissues. Breast reconstruction can also be performed to correct breast asymmetry. Secondary breast procedures are done to correct capsular contracture, asymmetry, and symmastia.

Breast reduction removes breast tissue to decrease the size of the breast. After breast reduction, women often report a decrease in their neck, back, and shoulder pain and an increase in their ability to exercise. Male breast reduction is performed for gynecomastia or enlarged breasts using liposuction or minimally invasive techniques.
