Building Beautiful Breasts

Posted December 15, 2015 in Uncategorized, by Dr. Fiorillo

Dr. Fiorillo is a double board certified plastic surgeon with offices in New York and New Jersey. One of Dr. Fiorillo’s specialties is building beautiful breasts.

I’m a guy; I don’t want beautiful breasts!

For some men, aging or other hormonal changes can cause the growth of excess breast tissue in males. In many cases (especially with younger men and boys), this gynecomastia will resolve itself, but in some situations, gynecomastia requires surgical correction.

What if I want them smaller?

Despite all the attention given to breast augmentation, some women with large breasts would prefer to have them smaller. In addition to the cosmetic concerns, excessively large breasts can cause back pain, breathing problems, and poor posture. Breast reduction can help women create a body shape that they love.

I like my size, but I don’t like the sag.

Over time, aging, heredity, pregnancy, weight loss, or gravity can cause a woman’s breasts to sag or droop. A procedure called a mastopexy can help to raise your breasts to a more youthful contour. Sometimes a breast lift is performed with breast augmentation, but sometimes it’s performed on its own.

Make them bigger!

Some women have breast augmentation surgery in order to correct a medical or genetic problem. They may be seeking reconstructive surgery after a mastectomy, or they may be wanting a way to enlarge their naturally small breasts. For some women – especially women who have been pregnant or breastfed – a loss of breast volume may be the problem. Some women may be lopsided and need some help to improve breast symmetry. In any of these cases, breast augmentation could be an option for you.

What kind of implants?

There are many different options for breast implants, including saline, silicone, and Gummy Bear. Dr. Fiorillo prefers the Gummy Bear implants, because they’re the safest option and they give the most natural look and feel to the finished breasts. You can have implants in a variety of shapes, sizes, and contours, so talk with Dr. Fiorillo today to find the one that’s right for you!
