Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is a very popular procedure for women and among the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery procedures in Reading, PA. Most often, a saline-filled implant is used.  The implant can be placed under the breast tissue or beneath the chest wall muscle.  After surgery, breasts will appear fuller and more shapely in contour.  Incision scars can be placed in the armpit, around the areola, or under the breast.  

In some cases silicone implants can be used.


Breast Lift

Over time, the effects of gravity along with the loss of the skin's natural elasticity begins to have an effect on the appearance of a woman's breasts.  These factors, combined with pregnancies and nursing will often cause the breasts to lose their youthful shape and firmness.

A breastlift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts.  The procedure can also reduce the size of the areola (the darker skin surrounding the nipple).  Breast implants inserted in conjunction with a mastopexy procedure can increase both firmness and size.


Breast Reconstruction

Reconstruction of the breast after a mastectomy due to cancer or other disease is quite possible with today's surgical procedures.  The procedure is covered by many HMOs after breast cancer surgery.  Using the newest medical techniques, a plastic surgeon is often able to create a breast that is similar in form and appearance to that of the natural breast.  A consultation will provide you with information on the many available options for post-mastectomy breast reconstruction.


Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction | Berks County | Schuylkill CountyLarge, pendulous breasts may cause a woman to potentially experience various medical problems caused by the excessive weight of the breast tissue.  Problems with posture, skeletal deformities, back and neck pain, skin irritations and nerve irritations of the fingers are common with this condition.  Bra straps often leave indentations in the shoulder area.  Many women, especially teenage girls, are very self-conscious if they have unusually large breasts.  With breast reduction surgery, women of all ages are able to have breasts that are better shaped and in proportion. 

Breast reduction (reduction mammoplasty) removes fat, glandular tissue, and excessive skin, resulting in smaller, lighter and firmer breasts that are better-shaped in proportion to rest of the body.  New techniques can be used that result in shorter scars.
