Breast surgery makes up a significant portion of the procedures Dr. Jenny performs and includes breast augmentation, breast lift, breast reduction, and breast reconstruction. Dr. Jenny takes pride in giving beautiful, natural results to her cosmetic and breast reconstruction patients. During your initial consultation, Dr. Jenny will help you decide which type of procedure will best meet your surgical goals.
Breast augmentation or breast implants is a procedure to enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breasts. It is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures performed today.
There are many reasons why women seek breast augmentation. It can enhance the size of small breasts, balance breasts of different sizes or shapes, or address the reduction in breast volume that often occurs after pregnancy and breast feeding or with the aging process.
Breast augmentation surgery is commonly performed using incisions placed under the breast fold (inframammary), around the areola (periareolar) or in the armpit (axillary). Today breast implants are available as silicone gel or saline implants. The breast implant is then placed under the breast gland tissue (subgladular) or the pectoralis major muscle (submuscular).
Breast augmentation is a personal decision. Dr. Jenny can help you make the right choice to achieve your personal desires and expectations.

Breast reduction is both a functional and aesthetic procedure. Many women experience neck, shoulder and back pain, poor posture, skin irritation and poor clothing fit due to the size and weight of their breasts. Large, heavy breasts often limit physical activity and may be a source of embarrassment as well.
Dr. Jenny recognizes the real difficulties that women have from large, heavy breasts. A breast reduction is aimed at relieving these problems by reducing the size of the breasts. At the same time the breasts are lifted and re-shaped. A breast reduction will bring your breasts into balance with the rest of your body and restore them to a more attractive contour.
Breast cancer is a devastating diagnosis for a woman and her family. Treatment for breast cancer is a journey. As a woman and as a plastic surgeon having worked with many breast cancer survivors, Dr. Jenny is sensitive to your needs and goals.
Dr. Jenny offers a variety of breast reconstruction techniques including immediate and delayed breast reconstruction. There are many types of breast reconstruction options today. These include using tissue expander/breast implants (non-autologous) and using tissues from your own body (autologous flaps) such as pedicled and free TRAM flaps, latissimus dorsi flaps and DIEP flaps. Dr. Jenny is happy to help you find the best breast reconstruction option that suits you and achieves your goals.
Mastopexy (Breast Lift)
A mastopexy or breast lift is a procedure that addresses breast ptosis or saggy breasts by restoring breast shape. With changes in weight, the aging process or pregnancy, breasts can change shape, lose fullness and firmness, appear droopy or saggy with extra, loose skin.
A mastopexy does not add volume to the breasts like a breast implant. Instead it involves remodelling the breast tissue to improve breast shape and achieve a more youthful breast contour. It can also be performed in conjunction with a breast augmentation if additional breast volume is needed. Dr. Jenny can help you decide what breast procedure best meets your goals.
