Breast Surgery

What is breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that uses breast implants to alter the size, shape, or positioning of your breasts. It’s also one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries in the nation, and a decision that introduces many women to the care of Dr. Cabrera. 

There are many ways to perform breast augmentation, and a wide range of options when it comes to the type of implants used and what they’re made of. Dr. Cabrera sits down with you to discuss your treatment goals and explain the pros and cons of various options. 

The goal of breast augmentation is to create a breast shape and size that is aesthetically pleasing as well as natural-looking. Dr. Cabrera offers both silicone and saline implants. 

He also performs a fat transfer procedure to increase breast size without the use of implants. The process involves removing fat from your abdomen, buttocks, or thighs, then purifying that fat before injecting it into several areas of your breasts. This is a great fit for women who seek a relatively minor increase in breast volume and don’t want to pursue a surgical procedure.  

What can be done to achieve firmer breasts?

If you’re happy with the size of your breasts but want a firmer, tighter look and feel, mastopexy, or a breast lift, might be a good fit for your needs. This procedure does not add or remove volume but lifts and tightens your breast profile to create a more youthful contour.

A breast lift often includes repositioning and resizing of your nipples to achieve a natural-looking appearance. Recovery only takes around a week, but you’ll need to avoid strenuous activities for around four weeks to give your body a chance to heal. 

Is a breast reduction right for me?

A surgical breast reduction is a great option for women who have large, heavy, or sagging breasts and want a more streamlined chest profile. This procedure allows you to select your final breast size to align with your body type, lifestyle, and personal preferences. 

During the procedure, Dr. Cabrera creates an incision to access your breast tissue. He removes enough tissue to create your desired breast size and address any symmetry issues, then repositions your nipple before carefully closing the incisions. Your incision line location will depend on the approach used to reshape your breasts.
