At Allure Plastic Surgery Miami, we offer breast surgery procedures for both women and men. These procedures are used to alter or enhance the size, shape or appearance of a patient’s breasts, and are sometimes performed in combination in order to achieve the desired effect.
Breast augmentation can enhance and improve the shape of a woman’s breasts through the surgical placement of breast implants. The procedure can be used to restore the fullness and firmness lost during pregnancy or weight loss. It can also be used to correct breast asymmetry, where one breast is larger than the other. We offer both silicone and saline breast implants, with under-muscle (subglandular) or over-muscle (subpectoral) placement options. The incision points for implant placement are either periareolar (through the dark border around the nipple), inframammary (in the breast fold) or transaxillary (through the armpit).
Breast Lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure that not only lifts the breast but also reshapes and tightens the tissue. This procedure corrects sagging breasts that have lost their shape due to aging, pregnancy, prolonged breast feeding or significant weight loss. A breast lift can also occasionally reduce the breast size if deemed too large or increase the size of the breast by adding an implant when necessary to achieve the desired size.
Breast Reduction surgery, or reduction mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure that decreases the volume of tissue in large breasts. This operation is also designed to reshape, tighten and lift the breast. The procedure is commonly performed for medical reasons to alleviate the symptoms of breast hypertrophy, or pain in the back, shoulder or other areas of the body caused by the weight of the breasts. Women also frequently undergo breast reduction surgery because they feel self-conscious about the size of their breasts and wish to enhance their fashion choices.
Gynecomastia Surgery, or male breast reduction, is a surgical procedure used to correct overdeveloped or enlarged breasts in men that occur as a result of hormonal changes, obesity or certain medications. This surgery can restore self-esteem and confidence to men with hanging or enlarged breasts that cause embarrassment during normal activities like playing sports and going to the beach.
Breast Reconstruction is a surgical procedure for women who have had one or both of their natural breasts removed in whole or in part by a lumpectomy or mastectomy for the treatment of breast cancer. Breast reconstruction surgeries can be classified into two basic types: one that uses breast implants to reconstruct the breast, and the other (called “autologous”) that uses a patient’s own tissue for reconstruction.
