Dr. Gikas offers surgical options for patients seeking to improve the appearance of their breasts, including enhancing their size and shape through breast augmentation surgery. Breast surgery is popular for women seeking to achieve a more feminine and curvaceous figure and obtain greater confidence in their appearance.
Breast Augmentation is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the world. This surgery enlarges the size and volume of the breasts through placement of silicone or saline breast implants.
A breast lift, also called mastopexy surgery, involves removal of excess skin from the breasts. This process raises the breasts, eliminating the sagging that results from the aging process, breastfeeding, and the downward pull of gravity. As a result, the breasts will look perkier and nicely contoured.
Thanks to a breast reduction, Dr. Gikas can address the many issues that can come along with having overly large breasts. These can range from chronic back pain to trouble finding properly fitting clothing to problems with posture and rashes beneath the breasts.
Men with “man boobs” have a condition known as gynecomastia. This condition occurs due to hormone imbalances, lifestyle factors, medications, genetics, and certain medical conditions. The procedure to address this, called male breast reduction or gynecomastia surgery, involves removal of excess fat, skin, and glandular tissue from the chest.
After mastectomy surgery, patients may consider breast reconstruction to ease the difficult journey of fighting breast cancer. This reconstructive procedure uses flap techniques, breast implants, and cosmetic tattooing to recreate the breasts’ natural appearance.
After pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding, a woman’s body often looks very different from how it did before pregnancy. To reverse the physical changes that come along with motherhood, many women come in for a mommy makeover procedure. This custom-tailored package of surgeries can include liposuction, a breast lift with or without implants, and abdominoplasty surgery.
When deciding on a breast plastic surgery procedure, it’s best to meet with a skilled and experienced board-certified plastic surgeon. Dr. Gikas has years of experience and will be happy to answer any questions you may have. From preparation all the way through recovery, he’ll be there every step of the way.
During a consultation with Dr. Gikas, the two of you will discuss your goals for surgery, and he will recommend an ideal procedure to achieve them. He will go over your complete medical history, including allergies, past procedures, and all medications and supplements. He will also perform a physical examination, and photographs may be taken to aid in creating a surgical plan.
