Breast

We perform different breast procedures including

1- Breast augmentation (enlargement) with implants or fat transfer: Fat transfer involves liposuction, harvesting of the fat from other areas of the body (e.g. belly or thighs) then injecting the fat into the breast. Breast implants are saline or silicone and are placed through a small incision hidden in the armpit, under the breast or around the areola. We perform TUBA (Transumbilical Breast augmentation) which involves placing saline implants into the breast through a small incision hidden inside the belly button.

2- Breast lift: this procedure is used to treat ptosis (droop) of the breast that can occur with aging, pregnancy, massive weight loss, also known as mastopexy.

3- Breast reduction: Large breasts can cause neck and backpain and can interfere with daily activities. We perform breast reduction using surgical removal of breast tissue through incisions on the breast. We also perform breast reduction using liposuction

4- Treatment of male gynecomastia: This is a common problem where the male breast has a feminine shape. This issue might be attributed to medications, marijuana use, hormonal disturbance, genetic or idiopathic (no specific cause). This is usually corrected by breast liposuction and removal of the excess breast tissue through a small incision around the areola.

Below is a patient who underwent Breast Augmentation with AFT (autologous fat transfer) where the patient’s own fat was injected to the breast giving a natural look and feel without placing foreign bodies

Breast implants are either silicone or saline and are placed under or below the muscle. The patient below had silicone breast implants placed under the muscle through an IMC (inframammary crease) incision

The patient below is a 71 year old lady who desired a breast lift (mastopexy). This was done using an anchor incision under local tumescence anesthesia with monitored sedationinferior pedicle anchor mastopexy after gastric bypass

 

 

Breast reduction and lift are also common in males. Breast droop are excess skin laxity are common after weight loss. The patient, in the picture below, had breast lift with reduction (reduction mammoplasty with mastopexy) and contouring with removal of the excess skin and fatty tissue from the lateral chest wall (thoracoplasty). The procedure was done under local tumescence anesthesia with monitored sedation
