Breast Augmentation

One of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the country, breast augmentation also has one of the highest patient satisfaction rates of all surgical cosmetic procedures.

While breast augmentation offers a number of aesthetic benefits, the procedure cannot raise breasts that are significantly saggy. Many patients combine breast augmentation with a breast lift in order to achieve optimal results. Dr. Zinsser will help you determine which procedure or combination of procedures can best enable you to attain your desired outcome.

Breast Lift

Medically known as a mastopexy, a breast lift provides a youthful and perky lift to your bust by enhancing breast shape, projection and symmetry. Over time, your breasts may lose firmness and begin to droop and sag. A breast lift can restore your breasts so they sit higher on the chest wall and ultimately look firm, plump, rounded and youthful.

When performed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. John Zinsser, a breast lift can:

  • Raise sagging breasts
  • Create perky, beautiful breasts
  • Restore youthful firmness to the bosom
  • Tighten lax skin in the chest area
  • Combat the effects of weight loss, pregnancy and aging

Many women choose to undergo breast augmentation in addition to their breast lift surgery. During your initial consultation with Dr. Zinsser, he will evaluate your goals and candidacy for breast surgery and explain all of your treatment options. Together, you will develop a customized treatment plan that reflects your unique needs.

Breast Reconstruction

After breast cancer, a mastectomy can rob a woman of her self-confidence and sense of identity. In these cases, many women choose to restore their former figures through breast reconstruction. Women who live with congenital anomalies or have suffered physical trauma also seek breast reconstruction.

Various surgical techniques can be performed to reconstruct the breasts, depending on the cancer treatment you have undergone and your unique anatomy. Nipple reconstruction surgery may also be performed in conjunction with your breast reconstruction or as a separate procedure.

You may be a suitable candidate for breast reconstruction if you have undergone a:

  • Mastectomy
  • Double mastectomy
  • Lumpectomy

Additionally, if you have undergone a prophylactic mastectomy as a precautionary measure because of a genetic predisposition to breast cancer, you may also be a good candidate for breast reconstruction.

Breast Reduction

Breast reduction can help ease unwanted weight in your chest, giving you more stamina and a better fit in clothing. With more than 20 years of experience, Dr. Zinsser can deliver results that are beautifully natural and proportionate, offering a variety of everyday benefits, such as:

  • Reduced neck, shoulder and back pain
  • Increased energy and stamina
  • Less irritation and chafing under bra straps
  • Increased self-confidence
  • Reduced breast sagging
  •  Improved fit in swimwear, eveningwear and everyday outfits

When you aren’t held back by oversized breasts, you may likely discover a wealth of new fitness and exercise options. This newfound ability to engage in physical activity not only further enhances your figure, but it can improve your health, well-being and overall quality of life.

Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia Treatment)

Gynecomastia, a condition responsible for excess male breast tissue, affects many adolescent and middle-aged men. If you are self-conscious about the appearance of your chest, Dr. Zinsser can help you achieve a more masculine look with male breast reduction surgery.

By reducing the size of male breasts, the benefits of gynecomastia treatment are both physical and psychological. From a physical perspective, male breast reduction can:

  • Reduce the appearance of a feminine-looking chest
  • Allow a more defined appearance of pectoral muscles
  • Restore a more masculine appearance
  • Offer an improved appearance in fitted shirts

Psychologically, male breast reduction surgery can restore a sense of confidence and masculinity. Contact us today to schedule an initial consultation with Dr. Zinsser. He will assess your condition and explain your options.

Male Pectoral Implants

If exercise and diet have failed to deliver the muscle bulk and definition you want, male breast implants, or pectoral implants, can improve the shape, size and definition of your chest.

In both appearance and placement, male pectoral implants differ from breast implants for women. Their soft but solid silicone material makes them firmer than the silicone and saline implants placed in women’s breast augmentation procedures.

Male pectoral implants may be an appropriate solution if you:

  • Are unable to achieve your desired results through exercise
  • Are uncomfortable showing your upper body in public
  • Don’t like the way clothes fit on your torso
  • Experience chest asymmetry from an injury or birth anomaly

During your initial consultation with Dr. Zinsser, he will assess your candidacy for pectoral implants and explain your options. He will help you choose the pectoral implant that best suits your physique to provide a masculine, natural-looking appearance.
