Breast Augmentation

Many women decide to undergo breast augmentation to balance out their figures or to enhance the size, shape, or symmetry of their breasts.. The procedure helps women to feel better about their bodies, increase their self-confidence, and can help clothes fit better.. This popular and commonly performed procedure—also called breast enlargement or a “boob job”—will add volume and symmetry to your breasts, giving you a younger-looking appearance, firmer curves and a shapely silhouette.

Many women have a breast lift performed at the same time as their breast augmentation for more satisfying results.

Breast Lift Surgery

Breast lift surgery, also called a mastopexy, is a procedure where your breasts are tightened and reshaped to give you a younger-looking appearance. As you age, gravity causes sagging and drooping. Pregnancy, breastfeeding, as well as gaining and losing weight also contribute to droopy breasts. Breast lift surgery can erase the years in just one, simple procedure.

Dr. Trupiano has been recognized as one of America’s Top Breast Surgeons.

What Can I Expect During a Breast Lift Procedure?

  • The procedure usually takes about two to three hours.
  • You are given either intravenous sedation or general anesthesia.
  • Breast lift surgery is a procedure where the breast is tightened and raised by removing excess skin. The surrounding tissue is tightened as well. This reshapes and supports the new breast shape.
  • The breast tissue is lifted and reshaped to improve its contour and to increase firmness. Any excess skin is removed. Also, the nipples are repositioned, giving them a younger and more natural appearance.
  • A breast lift also reduces enlarged areolas when the pressure from drooping is relieved. If needed, some of the areola is removed by reducing it a bit from the perimeter.

What Can I Expect After a Breast Lift Procedure?

Recovery times vary according to each individual, but as a general rule of thumb, recovery time with limited activity lasts about 10 – 14 days. A complete return to normal activities resumes around 6 weeks.

To reduce swelling and offer added support to your breasts as healing occurs, you’ll be asked to wear a support bra or an elastic bandage for about six weeks.

As the swelling decreases, you’ll be able to see the results of your procedure immediately, and your happiness with your new look begins. A picture is worth a thousand words; see the results Dr. Trupiano’s patients have experienced by looking at their before and after photos.

While you are recovering, be sure not to lift excessive weight. Also, avoid any rigorous motions. These restrictions allow the incisions to completely heal. Be sure to follow all the doctor’s instructions to ensure the success of your surgery.

The final results of your breast lift will continue to appear over the next few months as the shape continues to settle. Any incision marks will also fade as time passes, but the positive results of your surgery will be long-term.

To maintain the new look of your breasts for the longest period of time, you should:

  • Maintain your weight
  • Live a healthy lifestyle
Breast Reduction

Overly large breasts can cause physical discomfort. Many women also feel self-conscious about breasts that are out of proportion with the rest of their bodies. Breast reduction surgery, also known as mammaplasty, removes the excess fat, glandular tissue and skin from the breasts. 

Dr. Trupiano has been recognized as one of America’s Top Breast Surgeons.

Breast Reduction Surgery

During the surgery, which lasts about three to four hours, you will be medicated with either intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. The nipple will be repositioned and the underlying breast tissue will be reduced, lifted and shaped. To create and support the new, smaller breasts, sutures will be layered within the breast tissue. 

Post Breast Reduction Facts

The results of the procedure will be visible immediately, and as the swelling subsides, your satisfaction with the procedure should grow. You should be able to return to normal activities after fourteen days, but you will likely be instructed to wear a support bra day and night for three to four weeks. Your new breast shape and position with settle over the next few months. While incision lines will be visible, with time, they will somewhat fade.

You will appreciate the comfort that comes with having smaller breasts and a more balanced figure. You might find, too, that your self-confidence has grown significantly.

Corrective Breast Surgery

Having a mastectomy is not just a challenge physically—it is also a challenge emotionally. Learning to go about your life post-procedure is an experience that is unique to each patient. Some eventually grow accustomed to the post-mastectomy results. Others wish to have their breast restored to the way that it was. Corrective breast surgery can restore the breast to near-normal appearance, shape and size.

During the surgery, which lasts about two hours, you will be medicated with either intravenous sedation or general anesthesia. Your surgeon, depending on what is right for you, will rebuild the breast with donor muscle, fat and skin from your abdomen, or transport tissue from the abdomen or buttock. A breast implant, saline or silicone, can be used instead of the prior listed procedures. An implant can also be used along with the other procedures to enhance the fullness of the bust line.

The results of the procedure will be visible immediately, and as the swelling subsides, your satisfaction with the procedure should grow. You should be able to return to normal activities after fourteen days, but you will likely be instructed to wear a support bra day for about six weeks. Your new breast shape and position with settle over the next few months. While incision lines will be visible, with time, they will somewhat fade. 

A corrective breast surgery will give new shape to your breasts. Over time, some breast sensation may return, but the surgery will not completely restore sensation to the breast. The final results of corrective breast surgery may help you to heal—physically and emotionally—after a mastectomy.

Inverted Nipple

Some women elect to have an inverted nipple corrected in order to heighten their appreciation of their bodies and to grow their self-confidence. This popular and commonly performed procedure will make the nipple stand out from the skin of the breast—even if it has not been stimulated.

Ten to twenty percent of women have inverted nipples, and there are varying degrees of inversion. Some inverted nipples become erect and remain erect temporarily. Others tend to retract quickly back to an inverted position after becoming erect. In some cases, the nipple remains inverted at all times.

Dr. Trupiano has been recognized as one of America’s Top Breast Surgeons.

Inverted Nipple Surgery Procedure

The procedure is minimally invasive and takes only about thirty minutes. You will receive either intravenous sedation or general anesthesia, and a small incision will be made at the base of the nipple. The release of the fiber and ducts will allow the nipple to protrude. After the procedure, you will be able to promptly return to your normal activities—there is virtually no down time.

The results of the procedure will be immediately visible, and you may find yourself standing taller and prouder.

Male Breast Reduction

Men of all ages are now looking to cosmetic surgery to improve their appearances. One of the conditions that can be helped through plastic surgery is Male Breast Reduction. This is a condition where excess breast tissue in males causes their breasts to develop, sag and stretches the areolas (the ring of pigmented skin surrounding the nipple).

Overdeveloped breasts in adult and adolescent males can be caused by a variety of factors including hormonal changes, genetics, being overweight or from taking certain medications. Enlarged breasts can cause emotional discomfort and impact a man’s self confidence. Many men with gynecomastia experience anxiety about their personal appearance and feel self-conscious in certain types of clothing. Embarrassment over having “man boobs” can be a significant source of loss of self-esteem and extreme negative feelings over one’s appearance.

What Can Male Breast Reduction Surgery Do For You?

If you have gynecomastia, male breast reduction surgery is the solution for achieving a flatter, more masculine chest and silhouette. Gynecomastia surgery reduces breast size while flattening and enhancing the shape of the chest. The procedure is also called gyno surgery or reduction mammaplasty.

In severe cases of overdeveloped male breasts, the heaviness of the excess breast tissue may cause saggy breasts and stretched out areolas. When this is the case, the areola position and size can be improved, and the removal of excess skin may be involved.

After gyno surgery, no longer will you experience emotional discomfort and a lack of self-confidence over your chest’s appearance. If you were avoiding certain physical activities and intimate situations simply to conceal your condition, gynecomastia surgery can shed these issues.

When you have a male breast reduction procedure to make your appearance more manlike, your self-confidence increases because you no longer have to feel self-conscious about having female-looking breasts. You can wear the clothes you like, without the worries of “man boobs”, and be able to take off your shirt in front of others without concerns of displaying enlarged, feminine-looking breasts.

What Happens During a Male Breast Reduction Procedure?

First, anesthesia is administered to avoid any discomfort or pain during the gyno surgery. You and Dr. Trupiano will discuss what’s best for you and your situation before the procedure.

Then, excess fat and glandular breast tissue will be removed from your chest area. Two methods – liposuction and excision – can be used to do this. Dr. Trupiano will advise you on what the best method(s) are to accomplish your male breast reduction.

Liposuction is an option where a fine, hollow tube is used and, once inserted, is waved back and forth to loosen and extract excess tissue through suction.

Excision is the technique where breast tissue and skin that is excessive is surgically removed. It’s also used when the areola must be reduced or repositioned.

There are some cases where Dr. Trupiano may use both methods, liposuction and excision, during the same procedure to give you the best and most natural-looking male chest contours. Depending on your circumstances and desired results, the procedure time may vary, but typically takes about one to two hours.

  • Excess fat in the breast area

  • Excess breast skin
  • Any of these characteristics in one or both breasts
