Breast Plastic Surgery Procedures at Wolfeld Plastic Surgery Mahanttan, New York
New York and New Jersey Plastic Surgeon Dr. Michael B. Wolfeld feels that it is extremely important for women to feel comfortable and proud with their appearance and their self-esteem. Breast augmentation with saline implants or FDA approved silicone gel filled implants may benefit women who feel that their breasts are too small, unevenly-shaped or sized, disproportionate to their bodies, or not as youthful after child birth. One of the most common surgical procedures performed today, breast augmentation surgery may be a viable option for women who want to enlarge their breasts for a more proportional silhouette.
The aging process can take a toll on the breasts as the skin loses elasticity, causing the breasts to droop or sag. The loss of elasticity results in breasts that are less able to resist the effects of pregnancy, nursing, and gravity. A breast lift (mastopexy) with Dr. Wolfeld may be beneficial to raise and reshape sagging breasts, removing excess skin and tightening tissue giving you perky, youthful breasts.

Women with large breasts are also frequently self-conscious about breast size. Dr. Wolfeld can help by reducing and reshaping your breasts which can alleviate most or all of these problems.

The goal is for Dr. Wolfeld to give you smaller, better-shaped breasts in proportion with the rest of your body.
Breast reconstruction is for women who have had a mastectomy, are planning to undergo mastectomy for breast cancer, or who plan on having a prophylactic mastectomy because they have a strong genetic risk for developing breast cancer. Breast reconstruction is also an appropriate procedure for patients that have had breast conservation treatment with lumpectomy and radiation, but have a contour deformity or asymmetry as a result of the treatment. Reconstruction of a breast following mastectomy can produce a very aesthetically pleasing result, but more importantly, for most women it helps them feel "whole again."
Male Breast Reduction
If you've been hiding under loose shirts ever since puberty, you don't have to feel ashamed for much longer. Gynecomastia, or enlargement of male breast tissue, is a significant source of embarrassment for many men. Reluctant to discuss their concerns, most men are likely to try and hide their condition. Many men avoid the beach, Jacuzzi, pool, sauna and other activities where their chest would be exposed. Once the unwanted breast tissue is removed, the confidence level of most men increases significantly.
