As the summer season approaches, some may dread going into their drawers and pulling out their swimsuits, let alone putting them on. For some patients, the insecurity regarding their breasts may hinder them from getting anywhere near a pool. Below, double board certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Whiteman, has broken down a list of the breast procedures he offers which will have you looking and feeling confident in your bathing suit.

Breast Augmentation: If you have a hard time filling out your swimsuit top and are looking to enhance the size of your breasts, Dr. Whiteman offers silicone, saline, and gummy bear breast implants for breast augmentation surgery. As each patient’s aesthetic goals are different, the correct type of implant will be determined during your consultation with Dr. Whiteman, at which time your objectives are discussed, measurements are taken, and you have the opportunity to try on various implants sizes to determine the best size and type of breast implant to be used. Women who feel self-conscious about their small breasts, have lost firmness due to childbearing, or have lost a large sum of weight are ideal candidates for breast augmentation surgery.

Breast Reduction: Women who struggle with large breasts know how difficult it is to find clothing that fits properly. Additionally, a breast reduction is optimal for women whose breasts cause back, neck, and shoulder pain, as well as difficulty participating in everyday activities. Dr. Whiteman also offers male breast reduction for those who have extra breast tissue also known as Gynecomastia.  This is a common and embarrassing problem for many men. Differing from a female breast reduction which removes excess skin and fat, a male breast reduction often requires the removal of excess glandular tissue.

Breast Lift: Patients with sagging, pendulous breasts that lack firmness with nipples that point downward are ideal for breast lift surgery, which restores the natural shape and proportion of the breasts. Dr. Whiteman uses multiple techniques when performing a breast lift and it is based on the size and shape of your breasts, the degree of sagging, as well as other factors. For minor correction to the placement of the breasts, Dr. Whiteman also performs mini breast lift surgery as well.

Breast Revision: Whether you’re unhappy with the size of your augmented breasts, experienced a leak in your implant, or simply want your implants removed all together, Dr. David Whiteman will help you achieve the look you desire.
