Breast Surgery in
Breast surgery is a cosmetic procedure that improves the shape and size of breasts.
Both men and women care about the way their breasts or chest area looks, and many dedicate a great deal of effort to improving this body area. Unfortunately, nature and the aging process do not always support their efforts.
At SurgiCare Arts & Aesthetics, Angelina Postoev, MD, FACS, a triple board-certified cosmetic surgeon, and Christopher Ibikunle, MD, FACS, offer breast surgery for men and women in Atlanta, Suwanee, Johns Creek, Buckhead, and surrounding areas of Atlanta, Georgia.
What is Breast Surgery?
Breast surgery is a cosmetic surgery performed on the breasts. There are several types of procedures that are available at SurgiCare Arts & Aesthetics in Atlanta:
Breast surgery encompasses procedures that improve the size, shape, and positioning of the breasts. The procedures are designed for both men and women. They are fully FDA-approved.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, implants are the most popular breast surgery in the U.S. The implant technology develops rapidly, now offering more affordable and more realistic looking implant options. Additionally, the emergence of breast fat transfer as an alternative option for breast augmentation provides a completely different experience. It’s a perfect solution for people who prefer to enhance their breasts while staying implant-free.
