  • Breast Lift


    Breast Lift

    Breast lift surgery is a procedure designed to revitalize the breasts to a higher-sitting and more refreshed position. Patients can achieve a more youthful and captivating appearance by eliminating excess skin and lifting of the breast tissue.

    It is important to maintain a good diet and exercise routine to combat the effects of aging. Nonetheless, it is sometimes impossible to correct sagging, asymmetrical, and deflated breasts without the professional assistance of a board-certified plastic surgeon. With Dr. Patronella’s skill and thorough familiarity with an assortment of breast sizes and shapes, he is able to expertly tackle any breast lift case with strategic incisions and meticulous repositioning. As he reshapes the breasts, Dr. Patronella is attentive to a multitude of details, including the location of the nipples and areolas, elevating them to the ideal position on the chest for the most attractive outcome possible.

  • Breast Reduction Surgery


    Breast Reduction Surgery

    Breast reduction surgery is employed to lighten and reduce the size of the breasts to make them more proportionate with the body. Heavy, oversized breasts can create issues that restrict patients from enjoying the fullness of their lives and the beauty of their natural breasts. Their size and heaviness often are physically uncomfortable and make it difficult to participate in certain activities and wear certain apparel. In addition, they can be a source of embarrassment and self-consciousness for some.

    During your breast reduction, Dr. Patronella takes careful steps to create an anchor-shaped incision for the maximum amount of success with a minimal amount of trauma. Once this has been achieved, the excess fat, skin, and tissue in this area are properly removed. A comprehensive strategy can also address the nipples-areola complex to produce a reduced and well-proportioned size. Dr. Patronella combines breast reduction surgery with breast lift surgery to accurately correct sagging skin and excess fat that may have caused poor positioning of your bustline.

  • Breast Revision


    Breast Revision

    Breast revision restores and improves the comfort and overall beauty of the breasts after surgery-related complications, genetic conditions, or a desire to change previously augmented breasts.

    Breast revision surgery typically takes between one to three hours to address the unusual appearance of breasts that have experienced issues such as capsular contracture, implant rupture, and implant displacement. Dr. Patronella will carefully adjust his revision techniques depending on the implant concerns and the desired aesthetic outcome. As you recover, you will be given dedicated instructions regarding your treatment and recovery, as well as a timeline for your healing and results.

  • Breast Implant Removal


    Breast Implant Removal

    Breast implant removal is performed on women who wish to remove their implants regardless of whether or not there were complications. For some patients, a transformation in lifestyle can lead to different aesthetic priorities and preferences. Some of the reasons women may want to remove their breast implants include their desire to have smaller, lighter breasts; implant complications; and/or irritation by the appearance or sensation of their implants. Dr. Patronella is sensitive to the many reasons women may want to stop their breast implant journey. Committed to understanding their aesthetic concerns, Dr. Patronella is known to provide warm and informative counsel to each of his patients.

    While not mandatory, a breast lift is sometimes ideal after breast implant removal to counter the effects of sagging and breast tissue expansion created by implants. By tightening the tissue and skin, Dr. Patronella can restore a more youthful, perky look to breasts.

  • Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation


    Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation

    For women who desire a natural increase in breast size, fat transfer breast augmentation provides many benefits. This breast enhancement treatment harvests a patient’s own unwanted fat from the body using liposuction techniques. This creates a more sculpted body physique (as the fat can be taken from the abdomen, hips, thighs, buttocks, lower back, etc.) and allows for natural-looking and feeling breast enlargement.

    Once the fat is harvested, it is purified and injected into various areas of the breast to create fuller breasts with or without implants. While this technique provides body sculpting and breast enhancement, it is important to note that fat transfer breast augmentation cannot provide the same amount of fullness as implants. This technique will usually only increase the breast size by ½ to 1 cup.
