“When it comes to breast procedures, a patient’s request for what they want may be vastly different than what they need to accomplish their desired result. For example, many women may assume they want breast augmentation, when a lift may give them better results. I work with each patient to identify her desired outcome and then help her find the best procedure or combination of procedures to give the results she wants.” – Dr. Norman Rappaport
Virtually every woman has a part of her body she would like to reshape and for many women, that part is her breasts. Breast surgery can help you achieve your cosmetic goals, whether you want to increase your cup size, lift and firm your breasts or reduce large, pendulous breasts. Dr. Rappaport has the expertise and experience to help you get the look you desire.
How Can Breast Surgery Improve Your Appearance?
Dr. Rappaport performs three basic types of breast surgery:
- Breast implant surgery, or augmentation mammoplasty, uses silicone gel or saline implants to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. Dr. Rappaport is widely renowned for natural-looking breast enhancement that is in harmony with a woman’s figure.
- A breast lift, or mastopexy, raises sagging breasts and repositions the nipples to give breasts a higher, firmer, more youthful look. This procedure is sometimes performed along with breast implant surgery — especially in women who have had children.
- Breast reduction surgery or reduction mammoplasty brings overly large, pendulous breasts into better proportion with the rest of a woman’s body. This procedure removes excess breast tissue, fat and skin, repositions the nipples and reduces the size of the areolas in proportion to the new, smaller breast size. If your insurance plan covers breast reduction surgery, Dr. Rappaport’s office can help pre-certify you for benefits.
Dr. Rappaport has been performing all types of breast surgery for more than three decades and can help women achieve what they are looking for with one or more of the above procedures. He takes the time with each patient to be sure he fully understands their cosmetic goals in breast surgery and then helps them achieve those goals with the latest techniques to produce the best possible outcomes.
