Breast augmentation, technically known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure that enhances the size and shape of a woman’s breast. Women elect to have this procedure done for a number of reasons, which include:
- Enhancing the body contour of a woman who, for personal reasons, feels her breast size is too small.
- Correcting a reduction in breast volume after pregnancy.
- Balancing a difference in breast size.
- As a reconstructive technique following breast surgery.
By inserting an implant behind each breast, Dr. Gallerani is able to increase a woman’s bustline by one or more bra cup sizes. If you’re considering breast augmentation, this will give you a basic understanding of the procedure–when it can help, how it’s performed, and what results you can expect.

Breast Reconstruction/ Revision
Breast reconstruction or revision, also known as revision breast reconstruction, or revision surgery, is a surgical procedure that reshapes a woman’s breasts, to have them looking as natural and symmetrical as possible. Dr Gallerani employs the MEDICI STAR technique for his Breast reconstruction procedures–which leaves no discernible scars. These are done for the following reasons:
- As a reconstructive technique following cancer treatment.
- To correct previous breast implant.
- To balance a difference in breast size.
By inserting an implant behind each breast, our plastic and reconstructive surgeon is able to increase a woman’s bustline by one or more bra cup sizes, with little to no discernible scarring.

Gynecomastia is a medical term that comes from the Greek words for “women-like breasts.” Though this oddly named condition is rarely talked about, it’s actually quite common. Gynecomastia affects an estimated 40 to 60 percent of men. It may affect only one breast, or both. Though certain drugs and medical problems have been linked with male breast overdevelopment, there is no one known cause in the vast majority of cases though it can be caused by any of the following:
- Medications including hormones
- Chronic kidney disease
- Chronic liver disease
- HIV treatment
- Spinal cord injury
- Binge eating and obesity
- Estrogen-producing performance-enhancing supplements
- Prostate cancer medication
- Marijuana use
- Cirrhosis of the liver
- Genetic disorders such as Klinefelter Syndrome
- Steroid usage
For men who feel self-conscious about their appearance, breast-reduction surgery can help. The procedure removes fat and or glandular tissue from the breasts, and in extreme cases removes excess skin, resulting in a chest that is flatter, firmer, and better-contoured.
