Fremont Plastic Surgery is centrally located in the East Bay easily accessed from the San Ramon Valley or from along the Bayshore Freeway. Once you arrive here, a consultation for altering the breast shape or size is a common topic. Our plastic surgeon, Dr. Eric Okamoto, is prepared to discuss corrective measures that will improve small, large, saggy, misshaped, or asymmetrical breasts. This is an area of expertise where he has had a wealth of experience since he opened his Fremont office in 1983.
Breast augmentation is one of the most commonly requested cosmetic operations at Fremont Plastic Surgery. It renders body proportion for those needing more volume in the bust line area. During your initial consultation, we will discuss implant choices, where the breast implants are to be placed, the location for the incisions, the desired breast size, and other details for the surgery including risks and complications.
Breasts commonly sag. This is often due to post-pregnancy causes, significant weight loss, enlarged breasts, or simply to the effects of gravity with aging. A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, is a frequently discussed topic with Dr. Okamoto at the Fremont Surgery Center. During your consultation, the various surgical options will be explained to manage the excess breast skin and to lift the nipple area.
Women with sagging breasts often look to improve the size and volume along with having a more ‘perkier’ appearance. As part of your consultation, Dr. Okamoto explains how the results from a Breast Lift with Implants differ from a Breast Lift.
Women with large breasts can experience back pain and other physical problems as a result of the excess weight they carry. Breast reduction, is a procedure designed to alleviate these problems by removing this excess weight and lifting the breast. Fremont Plastic Surgery offers this service on a non-insurance basis.
Sometimes, women present with a substantial degree of imbalance between their two breasts. Because the variations for this cosmetic disorder are widespread, a consultation must be individually tailored to each patient.
Because pregnancy can cause unpredictable changes to the breasts and abdomen that will vary from one woman to the next, the surgical options discussed during your consultation will depend upon the specific problems that exist. Possible corrective breast procedures include reduction, augmentation, mastopexy, or augmentation-mastopexy. As for the abdomen, sometimes only a liposuction is recommended, but generally a tummy tuck or a modified tummy tuck is the best option. Any of the breast operations can be combined with any of the abdominal procedures for the Mommy Makeover.
Excessive male breast tissue is quite common. Often this problem can be solved with liposuction alone when the majority of the breast mass is primarily due to fat. However, when true breast tissue is a significant component to the breast contour, a combination of surgical excision with liposuction is usually required.
