A breast lift, or mastopexy, targets loose and sagging skin that causes the bustline to drop. It can be performed alone or in tandem with a breast augmentation or liposuction procedure to create a youthful and proportionate appearance within a single day of surgery.

Dr. Frederick Watkins and his team perform breast reductions for both cosmetic and medical reasons on a regular basis. For women with large breasts, issues of appearance are only the beginning of more serious medical problems that might include severe shoulder and back pain, rashes, breathing difficulty, and skeletal damage. A breast reduction removes excess fatty tissue and reshapes each breast for an evened result in proportion to the rest of the body. Please visit the Breast Reduction page to see details about the procedure and recovery process in our state-of-the-art outpatient care facility.
Male Breast Reduction
Men have many of the same goals for greater self-confidence and improved self-image. In recent years, we’ve helped more and more male and LGBTQ+ patients address facial and body concerns with both surgical and nonsurgical procedures. These cosmetic or medical changes, including breast reduction surgery, can have a significant positive impact on health, appearance, and comfort. The process is similar to female breast reduction, eliminating fatty tissue via liposuction while removing excess skin on the abdomen to create a flat, symmetrical chest area.
