Gynecomastia (Breast Lift for Men)

Gynocomastia is enlarged or over developed breast in males. Surgery to reduce this tissue is called reduction mammaplasty and reduces breast size, flattening and enhancing the chest contours. While the exact cause of this condition is not known, it may be linked to hormone levels and hypertrophy of tissues in the male breast region. When found in adolescents who have passed puberty, it is sometimes necessary to check hormone levels that may be causing this condition. Most of the time surgery is the appropriate treatment.

Mastopexy (Breast Lift)

This surgery elevates and reshapes sagging breasts by removing excess skin, raising the remaining skin and tissue, and repositioning the nipples. Breast lift surgery helps patients achieve a more attractive, feminine shape and contour, and more proportionate areolas. Usually 1 to 3 hours are needed for breast lift surgery. Time requirements can vary from case to case. Your breast lift surgery will be performed in our facility that is certified by the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facility.

Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation can enhance the body contour, balance breast size irregularities and reconstruct tissue following surgery. The results can be very satisfying through a safe, effective procedure. The breast implant is inserted directly under breast tissue and the scars are usually inconspicuous. The technique used for your surgery depends not only on your surgeon's preferences, but also on your desired results. Carolina Plastic Surgery offers breast augmentation with saline-filled or silicone-filled implants.

Breast Reconstruction

Reconstruction of a breast that has been removed due to cancer or other disease is one of the most rewarding surgical procedures available today. New medical techniques and devises have made it possible for surgeons to create a breast that can come close in form and appearance to matching a natural breast.

Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction is performed for both physical and cosmetic reasons. Sagging breast tissue may be restrictive and painful and reduction can help this situation. The procedure takes 2 to 4 hours and is typically done under general anesthesia in a hospital setting. Normally, the plastic surgeon will make an incision similar in shape to an anchor or inverted keyhole that encompasses the area from the top of the nipple to the crease of the breast. Then, the plastic surgeon removes excess fat, skin, and tissue and repositions the remaining skin and areola.
