Breast procedures

Breast procedures have been the most commonly opted for cosmetic procedures for decades. Women may choose to undergo a breast procedure due to several undesirable changes that their breasts have undergone. Over time many changes in size, shape, and contour of the breasts will occur. There are different reasons for this including genetics, age, massive weight loss, childbirth, and breastfeeding. If you feel your breasts have lost their volume, shape, and appear deflated, you can choose to augment your breasts with implants. A lift can help sagging breasts that have little volume and a reduction procedure can help you with reducing very large breasts. However, it requires experience and surgical skills to give satisfying results. If you are unhappy with the results of a previously done breast procedure, Dr. Kayastha has the experience to correct your previous results through a revision procedure. Women from Schenectady can enjoy perky and youthful breasts that fit in well with their body proportions and lifestyle. Our male patients suffering from the enlarged breasts, gynecomastia, can also opt for breast reduction to restore their masculine chest contours. Here are the breast procedures you can choose from:

Body procedures
