The placement of breast implants improves the volume, shape and symmetry of natural breasts. Breast implants range in size, filler material, shape and texture. Dr. Berardi will consult with you to determine the kind of look and feel you desire and help you select the type of implants to achieve your goals.
Many women feel self-conscious of breasts that have lost their perky quality and sag or droop downward. Breast lift restores the breasts to a higher and more youthful position on the chest. Breast lift will not affect the size of the breasts, but the procedure may be combined with breast augmentation or breast reduction to create bigger or smaller breasts.
Large, heavy breasts can take a toll on both your body and your mind. Pendulous breasts put pressure on the back, neck and shoulders, and can cause feelings of shame or embarrassment in social situations. Breast reduction removes a significant amount of weight and heft and reshapes the breast mound to give it proper proportion.
For many women who have lost their breasts to cancer, reconstructing them is part of the healing process. Dr. Berardi offers several breast reconstruction options: using tissue expanders, breast implants or your own tissue. Breast reconstruction can be performed immediately following mastectomy or after you have healed from surgery.
Gynecomastia is a condition in which men develop enlarged breasts. It’s not uncommon for a man with gynecomastia to feel self-conscious of his body and avoid certain social situations. Depending on the case, Dr. Berardi uses liposuction and/or surgical excision to reduce oversized male breasts.
