Breast size is important to many women and for some, the size of their breasts can have a dramatic effect on their sense of social and psychological well-being. Whether they are choosing breast augmentation or reduction, many women will have a marked improvement in their self-esteem after cosmetic surgery has brought them closer to their personal and desired standard of beauty.
Lenox Plastic Surgery & Skin Center of Berkshire Medical Center offers the most advanced technology and techniques available to deliver the results you’re seeking. Led by our fellowship-trained plastic and reconstructive surgeon, Rodrigo Santamarina, MD, our skilled and compassionate team will help you understand your options, and what to expect before, during and after your procedure of choice:
Breast augmentation is the surgical placement of breast implants and can be performed to make smaller breasts appear larger, balance breasts that are asymmetrical or restore fullness that has diminished with age or as a result of pregnancy. Often, breast augmentation surgery is performed in conjunction with a breast lift, which improves the position and shape of sagging breasts. Implants may also be used to restore a breast that is lost to mastectomy or injury.
Breast reduction surgery reduces the size of overly large breasts by removing skin and breast tissue. There are two major benefits of breast reduction surgery: relief from pain and increased personal satisfaction with appearance. In many cases, quality of life is improved by alleviating pain in the back, neck and shoulders, and by allowing both women and men to feel less conscious about breast size.
