Breast Procedures Conveniently located to serve San Ramon and San Francisco
Dr. Michelle Place performs a number of breast procedures in San Ramon. Our breast appearance can impact the way we dress or how we feel about our body image. Some women struggle with confidence after breastfeeding. Even men with gynecomastia experience embarrassment and body-image issues.
Luckily, we provide a number of options to adjust the breast area. These procedures are customized to match each patient’s preferences and goals.
Breast augmentation can benefit those who want to add more volume to their breasts. The procedure involves placing saline or silicone implants to increase breast size and projection. Implants come in various shapes, sizes, types, profiles, and textures. Dr. Place will work with each patient to select their ideal breast implants based on their needs and goals.
People who want to address their drooping breasts can have a breast lift, or mastopexy. A breast lift procedure involves restoring the youthful shape and perkiness of the breasts. The procedure can be done without implants or combined with implants as an augmentation mastopexy. A number of incision patterns may be used depending on the amount of excess skin to be removed.
Health issues like chronic neck, shoulder, or back pain can be experienced due to large breast size. It can also be difficult to play sports and perform other physical activities. Patients who want to reduce their breast size can undergo a breast reduction procedure. During a breast reduction, excess glandular tissue and fat are removed, along with excess skin, and the breasts are reshaped.
Breast implant revision surgery can be performed to improve a number of aesthetic and health issues after a breast augmentation. After getting breast implants, some patients may want to change their breast implant size. Issues like capsular contracture may also develop. Additionally, there are cases where an implant must be replaced due to rupture.
Breast reconstruction is typically performed after breast cancer surgery or to correct a birth defect. It restores the natural appearance of the affected breast. The procedure is highly individualized for each patient and may involve flap reconstruction or placement of a breast implant.
Gynecomastia (oversized male breasts) can be a source of insecurity and shame for many men. Male breast reduction can be performed to remove “man boobs” and restore the masculine appearance of the chest. This procedure involves removal of excess skin, glandular breast tissue, and/or excess fat as needed.
The Cost of Breast Procedures
The cost of breast procedures depends on the details of each individual case. Price varies based on factors like the exact procedure being performed, the techniques involved, and anesthesia fees.
