breast augmentation is a simple outpatient procedure used to increase breast size and enhance breast shape usually performed under general anesthesia with minimal risks involved, and lasting only 1 to 2 hours. This procedure involves several types of incisions, sizes, and implant shapes, as well as placement options, which will be explained in more details by your surgeon. The best candidates for this procedure are healthy patients with fully developed breasts, whose breasts are asymmetrical or failed to develop normally. For a quicker recovery, patients are advised to wear a compression garment after surgery and follow up post-operative instructions. The cost of breast augmentation at our Miami clinic starts at $2,500.
Transaxillary breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that places breast implants through an armpit incision, which helps avoid scars on the breast and it’s less likely to affect nipple sensation. Good candidates for transaxillary breast augmentation are those considering saline implants. Scarring under the armpit is minimal so bruising, and bleeding is also minimal, and patients may experience little to no pain during recovery. Prices can range from 4,000 to $ 7,000.
Transumbilical breast augmentation (TUBA), also known as bellybutton breast mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure very effective at placing implants with a small incision in the navel and through the fatty tissue of the abdomen using an endoscope to ensure correct placement. During recovery, you may experience pressure and discomfort in your chest, for which you can take pain relievers. The scars are invisible so there is less downtime, and patients can return to normal exercise in two to three weeks. The TUBA procedure is good for women in good health that want saline implants, minimal scarring, and wish to increase breast size naturally. The cost for this procedure can range from $4,000 to $7,000.
Breast reduction surgery, also called reduction mammoplasty, helps correct large breasts that hang, cause discomfort or may interfere with physical activity by removing excess fat, skin, and tissue to achieve a breast size in proportion to your body. If you are experiencing back problems or any other health problem from your large breasts, and one of your breasts is bigger than the other, you may qualify for this procedure. Recovery takes approximately 1 to 4 weeks, and the final cosmetic results begin to show three months after surgery. The average cost of breast reduction is $5,400, and it is generally covered by your health insurance when performed for medical reasons, and with prior authorization.
Scarless breast reduction uses a less invasive surgical liposculpture technique that leaves minimal scarring when compared to the 12 inches of scaring left by traditional breast reduction surgery. This procedure is great for women with good skin elasticity who have oversized breasts that cause them physical and emotional discomfort. During the procedure, a small cannula is used to remove fat via suction. Patients can return to work in three days, but strenuous activity should be avoided for a week. The final results are seen in four to six weeks. The cost is typically $3,000-$7,000 but it may cost more.
A breast lift or mastopexy is an outpatient surgery that helps raise and reshape breasts for a firmer and rounder look. During surgery, extra skin may be removed and the size of the areola reduced. Three incision techniques are used: crescent, peri-areolar, vertical, and anchor, based on the amount of breast sagging. This procedure lasts 2-3 hours and is performed under general anesthesia. You must be sufficiently healthy to undergo a breast lift, close to optimal weight, and understand the risks involved, including the degree of scarring. During recovery, patients are instructed to wear a compression garment or sports bra, take short walks, and refrain from full daily activities for 2-3 weeks. A breast lift can cost about $4,500 depending on the extent of the surgery.
Gynecomastia surgery reduces the appearance of enlarged breasts in men helping restore symmetry and masculine chest contour. Excess skin in the area can be removed, and the position and size of the areola improved. This procedure may involve liposuction and surgical incisions around the nipple to remove excess skin and breast tissue. Good candidates for male breast reduction are healthy individuals who feel uncomfortable with their enlarged breasts. After surgery, the use of drains, bandages and compression garments may be required, as well as avoiding any quick or sudden movement of the arms. You can go back to work in just a few days and return to everyday activities in two weeks. Loss of sensation is temporary. The cost is around $3,500.
