Breast enhancement surgery encompasses a range of procedures designed to help patients achieve aesthetic goals, reduce physical discomfort and boost self-confidence.
New Yorkers who are unhappy with the size, shape or appearance of their breasts have a variety of cosmetic procedures to choose from that can alleviate undesirable changes caused by aging, genetics, weight loss, childbirth and certain medications.
Dr. Aviva Preminger offers breast surgery for both women and men in her NYC office. During a private consultation, Dr. Preminger may ask prospective patients to point out problem areas with a mirror, examine skin elasticity, review your medical history including pre-existing conditions, and discuss realistic outcomes as well as inherent risks.
Mastopexy is more commonly known as a breast lift, and helps restore sagging or drooping breasts without the addition of implants. This type of enhancement is particularly advantageous for female patients who want their breasts elevated to their former youthful position.
Breastfeeding and the simple effects of aging can cause breasts to lose their firmness and volume over time. During a breast lift procedure, the nipples may be raised or made smaller through an areola reduction.
There are various types of breast reconstruction, including surgical repair with a patient’s own tissues or use of saline or silicone implants, as well as a combination of the two. Developed to help mastectomy patients, the surgery rebuilds the breast to its former shape and size. The chosen breast reconstruction technique will be guided by your breast cancer surgery method, expectations and physical features.
Areola Reduction/ Nipple Reconstruction
Areola reduction is a simple and safe form of breast surgery that significantly helps patients who are dissatisfied with the shape or size of their areola (the pink or brown skin surrounding the nipple).
The surgery can address especially wide or enlarged areola, as well as non-circular or domed areas of tissue.
