Whether you’re seeking to enhance your natural curves, restore youthful firmness, or address specific concerns with your breasts, Dr. Jeffrey Lee offers several procedures for the breast in Boston. Since these are always performed with a personalized approach, your individual needs will be addressed for aesthetically pleasing results.
Breast augmentation surgery, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, is focused on enhancing the size and projection of the breasts. This surgical procedure gives patients fuller and more voluminous breasts, helping them achieve their desired silhouette. Whether you’re looking for subtle enhancement or a more noticeable change, breast implants can provide the desired volume, giving you a more balanced and proportionate figure.
Breast Augmentation and Lift
In cases where patients are lacking breast volume and projection and are experiencing breast sag, they may undergo a breast augmentation and lift procedure. This popular combination procedure is ideal for creating comprehensive breast enhancement with only a single required recovery period.
Types of Breast Implants
When considering breast augmentation, it’s important to understand the various types of breast implants available. Saline implants are filled with a sterile saltwater solution, while traditional silicone implants are filled with silicone gel.
A newer type of silicone implant called a gummy bear implant is also available, which is filled with a cohesive gel that closely mimics the texture and consistency of natural breast tissue. This implant will not leak if ruptured. When selecting the most suitable implant type, Dr. Lee will consider your desired outcome and individual needs.
Breast Implant Removal/Replacement
Over time, you may decide to remove or replace your breast implants due to personal preferences or changes in your body. Breast implant removal involves the extraction of the implants, while breast implant replacement allows you to switch to a different implant size or type.
Breast implants are not designed to last a lifetime. As a result, some individuals may choose to replace their implants as a proactive measure to maintain the long-term integrity and appearance of their breasts.
Breast Implant Revision
Breast implant revision is a specialized procedure tailored to address issues such as implant rupture, capsular contracture, implant malposition, or dissatisfaction with the results of a previous breast augmentation. With meticulous precision and advanced techniques, the appearance and feel of your breasts can be restored to a more natural outcome.
Pregnancy, weight fluctuations, and the natural aging process can cause breasts to lose firmness and sag. A breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is aimed at addressing sagging breasts. Through a breast lift procedure, Dr. Lee can restore a more youthful and uplifted appearance by removing excess skin, tightening the remaining skin, and repositioning the nipple to a higher position.
Breast reduction, also known as reduction mammoplasty, is a transformative procedure designed to alleviate discomfort caused by overly large breasts. Excessive breast size can lead to neck and back pain, shoulder grooving, and limitations in physical activities. By removing excess breast tissue and reshaping the breasts, a breast reduction addresses physical issues and helps you achieve a more proportionate and balanced figure.
Male Breast Reduction
Gynecomastia—enlarged male breast tissue—can cause emotional distress and self-consciousness. Through a combination of liposuction and tissue excision, male breast reduction surgery can reduce excess fat and glandular breast tissue, helping you achieve a flatter, more masculine chest.
Your consultation for breast procedures involves a physical examination of your chest area. Your medical history will be reviewed to assess your risk factors, evaluate any pre-existing conditions, and check your current medications. Measurements and photos may be taken during this time. An individualized treatment plan will be created by Dr. Lee to help you achieve your desired outcome.
Cost of Breast Procedures
The cost of breast procedures depends on the specific concerns of each patient. The overall price will reflect the complexity of the surgery. Anesthesia fees and total surgical time can affect the total cost. For ranges, please view our Plastic Surgery Pricing page.
