Breast Enhancement

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.

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation or enlargement is one of the most requested plastic surgery procedures in the United States today. Whether one chooses to augment their existing bust line with saline or silicone breast implants, the surgery can offer patients the feminine contours and womanly look they have always dreamed about.

Dr. Preminger ensures the implants chosen are proportionate with the rest of the body, giving her patients a natural-looking outcome. Depending on your specific physical features and goals, Dr. Preminger may recommend placing the implants above or below the pectoral muscle. The results are long lasting but may be affected by childbirth and significant weight loss.

Breast Lift

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.

Male Breast Reduction

Characterized by excess glandular tissue development and enlarged breasts in men, gynecomastia often causes social discomfort and intimacy problems. Male breast reduction surgery can alleviate this condition through liposuction, removing extra glandular tissue or using a combination of the two procedures.

Dr. Preminger strives to minimize scarring while reducing breast tissue to normal levels. Gynecomastia surgery may also be appropriate for adolescent patients, and can greatly diminish the psychological trauma associated with large breasts.

Breast Reconstruction

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.

Accessory Breast Tissue Surgery

Polymastia is a condition marked by redundant breast tissue that can affect both men and women. This extra tissue can manifest in many ways, from a normal looking and functioning breast, to a third nipple – also known as polythelia.  An accessory breast can also present as a small mass of tissue lacking a nipple and areola in random parts of the body.

The condition is more common in women, and may not become evident

until later in life with hormone fluctuations triggered by pregnancy or menstruation.

Dr. Preminger performs accessory breast tissue removal surgery on an outpatient basis, and customizes her treatment plan for patients accordingly.

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.

The benefits of areola reduction and nipple reconstruction include limited scarring and a more aesthetically pleasing areola shape. The procedure can be performed alone or in conjunction with a breast lift, breast reduction, or inverted nipple correction.
