Breast Surgery: What Are Your Options?

Some women like their breasts big and full, others prefer a soft and natural look. At H/K/B we understand that the ideal breast appearance can vary substantially from patient to patient, and achieving those ideas requires a customized approach.

To help every woman find her perfect fit, we offer several different breast surgery options. Explore your possibilities for creating your perfect breasts and then call our Charlotte, NC plastic surgery office to schedule your consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons.

Breast Augmentation

Our most popular breast surgery is breast augmentation. This procedure helps a woman to achieve a larger breast size by placing a long-lasting implant into the breast tissue. Breast augmentation can offer subtle or dramatic change, depending on the size and shape of the implant used.

We offer breast augmentation surgery using saline, silicone, and cohesive silicone gel implants. Our surgeons are experienced with all methods of incision placement, including the TUBA technique. We offer three options for implant placement including sub-glandular, sub-muscular, and the newest method, sub-facial. We’ll talk about your options and make treatment recommendations during your breast augmentation consultation. As a top provider of breast implants in the area, our surgeons are deeply familiar with the many available techniques for breast augmentation.

Breast Lift

Breast sagging is a common complaint, especially amongst our post-pregnancy and weight loss patients. A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, restores breast shape by removing excess skin and lifting sagging breast tissues. Women can retain a similar breast size with a breast lift alone or can increase their cup size by pairing a breast lift with implants.

Severity of sagging varies substantially, and we use many incision and lifting techniques to customize this procedure. We always minimize scarring as much as possible without compromising results.

Breast Reduction

Breast tissue is heavy, and if you have too much, it can really weigh you down. Our breast reduction patients have often struggled with back and neck pain for years before they receive surgery. It can be difficult to find clothing that fits and flatters oversize breasts. Breast reduction surgery removes skin, fat, and breast tissue to create a breast that is more manageable and more comfortable.

We work closely with breast reduction patients to figure out ideal breast size before surgery. In addition to a detailed and comprehensive consultation, we also offer Vectra 3D Imaging. This allows you to see your new, smaller breasts before surgery and is an invaluable tool in determining how you want to look post-surgery.

Fat Grafting for the Breasts

Put unwanted fat to good use by adding it into your breasts. Fat grafting can reposition fat into the breast area. We typically pair this procedure with breast augmentation and use the fat to camouflage the appearance of the implants. Fat grafting offers a long-lasting result, and our specialized techniques minimize fat loss after transfer.

Breast Surgery for Men

Although breast surgery is most commonly performed on our female patients, we offer one type of breast surgery specifically for men: gynecomastia treatment, also known as male breast reduction. This procedure removes excess fat and tissue from the chest area in men with gynecomastia. The goal of treatment is a flatter, more masculine chest appearance. Our experienced surgeons skillfully place incisions, often placing them in inconspicuous locations like under the arm or on the edge of the areola. Our male breast reduction patients are typically delighted with their results, and many note an increase in confidence after their procedure.
