Whether a patient is looking for subtle enhancement, or a more complete transformation of her bustline, breast surgery presents patients with the opportunity to add volume, shape, firmness, and more aesthetic harmony to their appearance. For many women, however, it is not always immediately clear which procedure will help them improve their breasts in the way that they envision. As a result, the first and most important step in selecting a breast surgery procedure is for the patient to communicate with the board certified plastic surgeon her goals and expectations. Each woman’s breasts are unique. In consultation the plastic surgeon should address the patient’s existing anatomy and explain the various surgical options that can best fulfill the patient’s desires.

Breast augmentation increases both the size and perkiness of the breasts, and can also give the patient a modest amount of lift. In a breast augmentation procedure performed by itself, the breasts’ unique characteristics are simply enhanced. Dr. Richard Zeff, our plastic surgeon, offers advanced augmentation methods for results that are both natural and full.
The two types of implants available for breast augmentation are silicone gel filled and saline filled implants. Prior to your surgery, our plastic surgeon will discuss with you these different options, and help you determine which type is most suitable to your needs.
In cases where breasts have lost their elasticity and have begun to sag, a breast lift, or mastopexy, may be necessary. For patients specifically looking to add fullness while correcting the skin’s loss of elasticity, both breast lift and augmentation may be needed to achieve optimal results.
Overly large breasts can be physically painful, and they can also cause women to feel self-conscious about their appearance. Our skilled plastic surgeon performs breast reduction surgery to reduce breast size to a more manageable level and help women to enjoy a higher quality of life.
Male Breast Reduction
Gynecomastia is a common medical condition that causes development of breast tissue in men. Dr. Zeff performs male breast reduction using state-of-the-art techniques to address this concern with excellent results.
Breast Augmentation Revision and Implant Exchange
The reasons for considering breast revision surgery are many and varied. If you’re dissatisfied with the appearance of your breasts, if you wish to exchange or remove your implants, or if you’re suffering from capsular contracture or an implant rupture, Dr. Zeff can help you find a solution that offers the most beautiful and natural-looking results possible.
Fat Grafting for the Breast
Fat transfer, also known as fat grafting, is a technique that uses your own natural fatty tissue to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. Performed by Dr. Zeff, this procedure can be used alone or in conjunction with other breast surgeries.
It’s not uncommon after having children for a woman to notice not only deflation of her breasts, but also loose skin and stretch marks on the abdomen. A Mommy Makeover can include a combination of customized procedures designed to help women restore their pre-pregnancy figure and a renewed sense of confidence with their appearance.
