Breast Augmentation Surgery / Mammaplasty
Breast augmentation, technically known as augmentation mammaplasty, is one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures among women today.
The procedure enhances the size and shape of the breasts by utilizing FDA-approved saline or silicone implants.
The surgeons affiliated with MAXiM offer multiple options for breast augmentation to women who wish to improve their body contour with fuller breasts:
- Balance your breast size
- Correct breast tissue reduction (due to pregnancy or weight loss)
- Use it for reconstructive purposes
MAXiM-affiliated surgeons provide the latest breast enhancement techniques that result in a natural look and feel including an optimal choice of implants suitable to you. They will advise you regarding the choice of saline, silicone, or gummy bear implants, depending upon which one best suits you clinically and aesthetically.

Over time, a woman’s breasts lose their natural support. Factors such as pregnancy, nursing, weight changes, and the force of gravity take their toll on the shape and firmness of the breasts, stretching their suspensory ligaments and making the skin envelope sag.
A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure that lessens the degree of the drooping, which is medically referred to as breast ptosis.
MAXiM-affiliated surgeons offer this breast-enhancing procedure for women who wish to:
- Achieve a more youthful position for both breast and nipple
- Achieve a more proportional size and rounder areola
- Reshape and elevate breasts in conjunction with a breast augmentation

BREAST REDUCTION Surgery
Some women have excessively large, heavy breasts. They can cause physical discomfort as well as emotional distress. Bra straps can dig into the shoulders and skin rashes can develop where the breasts sag. Women with overly large breasts may be self-conscious and limit their physical and social activities.
A breast reduction, or reduction mammaplasty, is a cosmetic or reconstructive surgical procedure that is performed to remove excess breast tissue, reduce the size of the breasts, and reposition the nipple and areola.
The benefits of breast reduction surgery include:
- Achieving a breast size that is more proportional to your body
- Decreasing neck, shoulder, and back pain and discomfort
- Relieving painful bra strap marks and skin rashes
- Improving self-image, self-confidence, and quality of life

MALE BREAST REDUCTION FOR GYNECOMASTIA
When a man has enlarged breasts, this is known as gynecomastia. It is most often the result of a hormonal imbalance in testosterone and estrogen. Breast enlargement occurs when testosterone levels decrease compared with estrogen levels.
Other factors that can cause gynecomastia include obesity, some types of medications, street drugs and alcohol, heredity, and certain health conditions. It can occur at any age.
Some men may feel self-conscious about enlarged breasts, causing them to avoid certain activities. Men with gynecomastia may opt for breast reduction surgery to remove excess tissue.
BREAST RECONSTRUCTION Surgery
After a breast cancer diagnosis, some women choose to have one or both breasts partially or completely removed (mastectomy), followed by breast reconstruction surgery.
MAXiM-affiliated surgeons can perform breast reconstruction using various surgical approaches, including breast implants and fat redistribution (flap reconstruction) using skin and tissue from your abdomen. The result is breasts that appear and feel completely natural.
Breast reconstruction can be done at the same time as a mastectomy or after you have completed cancer treatment. When you choose to have breast reconstruction is a highly personal decision. During your consultation, your surgeon will discuss all options in detail, including breast and nipple reconstruction techniques, to help you determine the timing and type of procedure that makes the most sense for you.
