Overview of the Procedures

Breast Reduction Surgery
This operation is performed in patients who have large breasts and associated musculoskeletal symptoms.
Breast Lift Surgery (mastopexy)
The surgical procedure known as mastopexy is performed in patients who may or may not have had large breasts when younger but whose breasts have now have sagged and, as a general rule, volume has diminished.
Liposuction
These operations are performed in patients who have excess localized fatty deposits with associated cosmetic deformity.
Tummy Tuck Surgery (abdominiplasty)
Abdominiplasty is performed in patients who have excess abdomenal skin and fat with associated abdomenal wall laxity.

Breast Enlargement - our most commonly performed surgery!

  • This operation is designed to increase the fullness and size of the breasts. This is done by the insertion of silicone gel (gummy bear) or salt water filled breast (saline) implants through a skin incision in the chest wall. The implants are placed beneath the existing breast tissue or beneath your pectoralis muscle.

    The exact size of the breast cannot be guaranteed, therefore you must select the breast size comparable to your other measurements, considering your personal preference, at the time of your consultation.

    We prefer SIENTRA implants because of their high quality and the superior warranty provided to our patients at no additional cost.

    HOSPITAL STAY: This is an outpatient procedure, usually performed at the Surgery Center at Kissing Camels.

    ANESTHESIA: This operation is usually done with General anesthesia. This expense is included in the fee you pay for your surgery.

    SURGICAL TIME: Approximately 1 hour.

    COMPLICATIONS: Rarely, is it necessary for the drainage of fluid which collects around the artificial implant. The patient may have to be returned to the operating room to evacuate a hematoma (collections of blood around the implant). The implant will usually be kept in if this occurs.

    Occasionally, a scar capsule forms deeply around the implant; this may result in a very firm breast. A second operation may be advised to soften the breast by cutting the scar capsule. There is no evidence of an increased possibility of cancer of the breast with breast augmentation.

    SOCIAL ACTIVITY: Excessive arm movement, aggressive exercise, and the lifting of heavy objects should be restricted for three to four weeks.
