Breast Procedures in Boston - Breast Augmentation, Breast Lift, Breast Reduction, and More

Breast procedures are surgical cosmetic procedures performed to augment, lift, or reduce the breasts depending on the patient’s aesthetic needs. Richard A. Bartlett, M.D. Cosmetic & Reconstructive Surgery has been providing safe and quality surgeries to patients looking for breast procedures in Boston.

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation surgery is a cosmetic procedure that involves placing implants to enhance the aesthetics of the breasts. This is recommended for women who want to have fuller breasts. The patient will choose the type, size, shape, texture, and profile of their breast implants. Breast augmentation can be combined with a breast lift to improve size, shape, and projection while eliminating sagging.

Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

This breast procedure is highly recommended for patients with sagging breasts. It improves the tone and firmness of the breasts by removing excess skin and resizing/repositioning the nipples. It also reshapes long or pointy breasts. The breast lift is an ideal option for women after pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Breast Reduction

There are women with large breasts who want to reduce their breast size due to aesthetic preferences. Some women experience physical discomfort including back, neck, and shoulder pain. Women also find it very challenging to find suitable clothing sizes due to their large breasts. Breast reduction surgery can effectively solve these issues.

Breast Asymmetry

Many women have size and shape differences between their breasts. Breast asymmetry not only makes it difficult for women to find appropriate clothing like swimsuits, it also affects their aesthetics. This can be solved by reducing the larger breast, increasing the size of the smaller breast, performing a breast lift, or performing an augmentation with lift.

Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)

Sometimes, men experience an increase in their breast gland tissue. This causes their chest tissue to mimic the appearance of breasts. The common causes of gynecomastia are puberty and aging. Obesity, certain diseases, and medications are also known causes of this condition. The most effective solution for gynecomastia is male breast reduction surgery.

Ideal Candidates for Breast Procedures

Breast procedures are recommended for patients who are unhappy with the appearance of their breasts. Candidates must be in good overall health and must not have breast cancer. They must have realistic goals and no post-surgery healing issues. Candidates must be willing to commit to the full recovery process. Candidates should not be pregnant or breastfeeding.
