Breast Reduction

Breast reduction surgery offers relief from physical and emotional discomfort, the freedom to wear a greater variety of clothing styles, and an improved range of movement during physical activity. During the procedure, Dr. Chow removes excess tissue, including skin, and reshapes the breasts so that they better complement the patient's body. The breast reduction techniques used by Dr. Chow vary from case to case, depending on the needs and aesthetic goals of each patient.

Your consultation will take place in a private, comfortable setting, and Dr. Chow will work with you to develop a custom treatment plan that fits your individual goals. When appropriate, breast reduction may be combined with liposuction, a tummy tuck, or other cosmetic procedures to produce a more extensive transformation.

Breast Reconstruction After Mastectomy

In addition to cosmetic breast enhancement, Dr. Chow performs breast reconstruction surgery for women who have undergone mastectomy or suffer from developmental abnormalities. With breast reconstruction, Dr. Chow can use breast implants to create an attractive, realistic contour; he can even craft a lifelike nipple to complete the restoration. Breast reconstruction techniques are constantly advancing, and Dr. Chow is able to create amazingly realistic breasts for his patients.

During your consultation, Dr. Chow will review the available breast reconstruction techniques with you, helping you determine which option is best suited to your individual needs. He will also answer any questions you may have, provide you with before-and-after photographs of previous patients, and help you develop reasonable expectations about the outcome of your own procedure. Our highly experienced and thoughtful staff is also available to assist you as you prepare for post-breast cancer reconstructive surgery.
