Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation< is a popular cosmetic procedure that utilizes breast implants to enhance the bust. Women seek out breast augmentation surgery for a number of reasons - some have always wished for fuller or more proportionate breasts, some are seeking to correct breast changes that occurred after childbirth and breastfeeding, and some women would like to restore a youthful appearance to breasts that have lost volume with age. Dr. Lickstein offers saline, silicone, and cohesive gel (“gummy bear”) implants, and he will discuss your desired results to determine which type of breast implant is the best choice for you. Learn more about breast augmentation, including the surgical process, recovery, results, and frequently asked questions.

Breast Lift

A surgical breast lift, or mastopexy, aims to reposition the breasts to raise the breast profile, reduce sagging and improve cleavage. Patients often seek out breast lift surgery when they are happy with the overall size of their breasts but are bothered by the shape. Breasts can change shape as skin loses elasticity and breast position can change with age, breastfeeding, or weight loss. A breast lift can reposition nipples that point downward, correct asymmetry, give breasts a more firm and youthful appearance. For patients who desire lift and increased volume, Dr. Lickstein is experienced in combining breast lift surgery and breast augmentation with implants. Learn more about breast lift surgery, recovery, and results.

Breast Reduction

Breast reduction surgery can serve both functional and aesthetic purposes for women who are unhappy with the size of their breasts. Patients with overly heavy or very large breasts may suffer from back and neck pain, skin irritation, and a limited ability to participate in physical activity due to their breast size. Large breasts can also be out of proportion with the rest of the body, making it difficult to feel elegant or wear certain clothing. Breast reduction surgery with Dr. Lickstein can create a more balanced figure for a proportional appearance and renewed comfort and confidence.

Breast Revision and Explantation

Breast revision surgery is performed to remove or replace breast implants or to correct complications or positioning issues from a previous surgery. Patients may experience a change in the appearance of their breast implants as a result of weight fluctuation or hormonal changes. Some patients choose to have breast implants removed because they have changed their lifestyle or they no longer like the way they look. Many patients replace their breast implants with newer implants that are more natural-looking when placed by an experienced surgeon. Breast revision surgery is complex and each procedure is very personalized. Dr. Lickstein has advanced expertise in revision and explantation procedures, including en bloc capsulectomy.

Male Breast Reduction Surgery for Gynecomastia

Gynecomastia is a condition that causes men to have excess tissue or fat in the chest that creates the appearance of breasts. A number of factors, such as hormonal imbalances, may contribute to this condition. Men with gynecomastia often feel self-conscious and physically uncomfortable. Dr. Lickstein can relieve patients of the physical effects of this condition and restore a masculine appearance with specialized breast reduction surgery for men. Liposuction may be utilized to reduce fat deposits in the chest, and surgical techniques will be utilized to remove excess glandular tissue.
