Breast Lift

Staying in good physical shape is important to most people living in Southern California, The climate, outdoors and beach allow you to be active year round. Even with exercise, diet and a healthy lifestyle, breast droop cannot be prevented or corrected. Pregnancy, weight loss and gravity cause breast droop (ptosis). A breast lift (mastopexy) allows you to give your breasts the same youthful appearance as your body and match your personality and lifestyle.

Breast Reduction

Women with very large, pendulous breasts may suffer from a variety of medical problems caused by the excessive weight of the breasts. These range from back pain to difficulty in finding clothing that fits. You may be uncomfortable working out or participating in sports which make loosing weight very difficult. Bra straps may leave indentations in their shoulders and rashes can develop in the folds of the breast. Large breasts can make a woman-or a teenage girl-feel extremely self-conscious.

Breast Reconstruction

Breast cancer can be a devastating diagnosis. Although there are many new treatments available, the fear of disfigurement is still part of this devastation. Breast reconstruction may be able to restore the appearance and self-confidence of a woman undergoing a mastectomy for breast cancer.

Women are now often diagnosed with breast cancer at a younger age. Some women may also choose to have a mastectomy because of a strong family of breast cancer or genetic predisposition.

Male Breast Reduction

Breast enlargement in men, also called gynecomastia, can be a very embarrassing condition. Young men and teenagers, who often are affected, may avoid exposing their chest out of fear of being ridiculed. The breast enlargement may be temporary, but if it does not resolve with time different surgical procedures are available to treat it.

The procedures remove fat, breast tissue and sometimes skin from the breasts, resulting in a chest that is flatter, firmer, and better contoured. The definition of the pectoralis muscle is usually much improved.
