Breast Enhancement (Breast Surgery) in Worcester, MA

Women who want to correct or enhance breasts that are underdeveloped, imbalanced or asymmetrical, or sagging following pregnancy, lactation or weight loss, breast enhancement surgery may be the solution. Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Deborah K. Ekstrom performs cosmetic surgery, such as breast enhancement, for women in Worcester and the surrounding communities in Massachusetts at Salisbury Plastic Surgery, a state-of-the-art medical facility. 

What is Breast Enhancement?

Breast enhancement may include any combination of various surgical procedures that enlarge, lift, reshape, rejuvenate, or otherwise improve the appearance of a woman’s breasts. Among the procedures that fall under this category are: breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast reconstruction, and breast lift surgeries, and even gynecomastia, or breast reduction surgery for men. Breast enhancement procedures may also include replacement of breast implants and corrections or enhancements to prior breast surgeries.

Benefits of Breast Enhancement

Women seek to alter the size, shape, fullness, firmness, or overall appearance of their breasts for many reasons, such as correcting breasts that appear lopsided or lifting sagging breasts.  For some women, reducing the size of their breasts helps correct posture, eliminate back pain and other side effects caused by excessively large breasts. For a large number of patients, including men, breast enhancement surgery restores their self-esteem by providing a more youthful and streamlined appearance.  Patients may now achieve a more natural look and feel thanks to new and improved developments in breast enhancement surgery that include reduced recovery time and fewer side effects and complications.

What are Some Common Breast Enhancement Procedures?

Salisbury Plastic Surgery offers a variety of breast enhancement procedures. If you’d like to learn more about any of these specific procedures, follow the links below and contact our friendly office in Shrewsbury to schedule a consultation.

Breast augmentation is performed to enlarge the breasts, usually by placing implants inside the breast itself. Breast augmentation is performed on thousands of women daily all over the world and is considered a safe and effective procedure.

Some women, following breast augmentation surgery, may decide to exchange their current breast implants for another size or shape.  Breast implant removal is a quick and uncomplicated procedure that may be performed through the original incision sites to prevent further scarring.

The proper name for a breast lift is mastopexy surgery.  This procedure is performed in order to lift sagging breasts, resulting in a more youthful appearance.

Breast reduction, known medically as mammoplasty surgery, permanently reduces the size and fullness of the breasts and may be performed on both or only one breast. This procedure diminishes the size, weight, and volume of the breasts, reducing strain on the back, and other side effects of large breasts.

Breast reconstruction is used to reconstruct natural-looking breasts in women who have undergone mastectomy or breast removal as a result of illness or injury. Breast reconstruction surgery aims to reconstruct the patient’s natural breasts as closely as possible.

Male breast reduction surgery is known as gynecomastia and is quickly becoming one of the most commonly performed cosmetic procedures.  Gynecomastia may be performed either through liposuction or surgery and removes excessive breast tissue in men and boys.

Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Enhancement?

Breast enhancement may be performed on almost anyone in good overall health. Contact our office to learn more about breast enhancement and what it can do for you.

How Much Does Breast Enhancement Cost in Massachusetts?

Prices for cosmetic procedures vary because each procedure is personally tailored to each patient, so a combination of procedures may be performed to achieve your individual makeover, affecting the total price.  Health insurance may cover breast reconstruction surgeries following a mastectomy due to cancer or other illness; however, other breast enhancement procedures are not usually covered.  To help you afford your procedure, we offer financing and flexible payment options.
