Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is a procedure that uses silicone gel or saline breast implants to enhance the size and shape of your breasts.

Breast Lift

Breast lift, or mastopexy, helps to both raise and shapes sagging breasts. The procedure can also reduce the size of the darker area around your nipples, the areola, which may have become enlarged due to pregnancy or breastfeeding.

Breast Reduction for Women

Breast reduction, or a reduction mammoplasty, is a procedure wherein fat, skin, and glandular tissue are removed from the breasts. The result of this is smaller, more comfortable breasts.

Patient Testimonials:

"Dr. Paul Ruff and his entire team are all excellent. They treat each patient visit with great care--carefully listening, and explaining procedures, and working to achieve the results their patients are looking for. They are TERRIFIC."

- Nancy Prowitt

Breast Reduction for Men

Some men have enlarged breasts due to weight gain or a genetic condition called gynecomastia. Male breast reduction is the breast treatment to reduce male breast size.

Breast Augmentation Revision

Occasionally, breast augmentation can lead to disappointing results or complications may arise. Our board-certified plastic surgeons help women attain the breast size and shape they want through breast augmentation revision surgery.

Nipple & Areola Reduction

Nipple & Areola reduction surgery helps improve the appearance of large, long, or droopy nipples and overly large or puffy areolas. This procedure can improve the size and shape of your breasts.

Renuvion (J-Plasma)

Renuvion (J-Plasma) resurfaces skin from above and tightens skin from below the skin’s surface, providing a more youthful appearance. This can be used on many locations on the body, including the breasts.


What Is Breast Surgery?

Breast surgery is a procedure that can have a variety of outcomes. It can be done to reduce the size of a woman’s breasts, treat gynecomastia, enhance the appearance of breasts, or reconstruct them. Everyone has their reasons for wanting or needing this operation.

What Are The Risks of Breast Surgery?

Breast surgery is not a procedure anyone can get. There are risks involved that can cause unwanted problems.

The risks of breast surgery include the following:

  • Pain and discomfort
  • Loss of nipple and breast sensation
  • Scarred tissue
  • Ruptured or leaking implants
  • Contracting an infection
  • The implant changes its position
  • Requiring additional operations

One of our board-certified plastic surgeons will cover more about these risks during your consultation.

How Long Does It Take to Recover From Breast Surgery?

On average, people who have breast surgery performed can expect to make a full recovery within six to eight weeks. However, the time it can take to recover depends on what the procedure was for and how well your body can heal.

What Disqualifies You From Being a Candidate for Breast Surgery?

Before you can have breast surgery done, you will need to be considered a viable candidate. However, certain factors can disqualify you from being a candidate.

These factors include the following:

  • Having unhealthy habits, such as smoking.
  • Having a BMI over 30.
  • You use recreational drugs.
  • You have underlying health conditions, such as high blood pressure.
  • You have unrealistic expectations regarding the procedure.
  • You have had surgical complications in the past.
  • The procedure conflicts with your goal of having children.

During your consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons, they will carefully assess your medical history. You must also answer any questions they have regarding your health. This is to help the surgeon consider you for the operation.
