Breast

Plastic surgery procedures of the breast can be performed for many different reasons, both aesthetic and medical. Our skilled team of plastic surgeons can perform a wide variety of these procedures for women in the Kansas City area. View the links below for more details on these services.


Breast augmentation

Breast augmentation surgery involves the surgical insertion of saline or silicone filled breast implants as a way to increase breast size or shapeliness. Aside from breast enlargement, the common goal for breast augmentation surgery is to improve body proportion, and increase femininity and self-confidence.

Breast lift

Breast lift surgery (i.e. mastopexy) is the only way to significantly lift sagging breasts. During the procedure, excess skin is removed, breast tissue is reshaped and the nipple-areola is repositioned to for a more youthful breast appearance.

Breast reduction

Breast reduction is performed for women who are negatively affected by large breasts. They often experience pain or psychological discomfort as a result of their body shape. During breast reduction, a plastic surgeon removes fat, skin and glandular tissue from the breasts using liposuction and other techniques. The breast is lifted, reshaped, and made smaller and firmer.

Breast reconstruction

During breast reconstruction, the breast is rebuilt using either implants or autologous tissue from the patient’s body. For the free flap approach to breast reconstruction, skin, muscle, and fat from the body are disconnected from the blood supply at the donor site and reattached to a blood supply in the recipient site. Microsurgery is then used to anastomose the blood vessels. Meet our breast reconstruction patients and read their stories.
