Breast Augmentation

Dr. Mayberry has a special eye for aesthetics and can help you decide whether silicone (gel-filled), saline-filled implants, or even natural augmentation using fat transfer are best for your shape during your consultation.

He has performed thousands of procedures to enlarge and reshape breasts. As an Albuquerque board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Mayberry begins your physical transformation with a private consultation to discuss your aesthetic goals and concerns.

Prioritizing Self-Image and Self-Esteem

It’s common for some women to experience emotional pain during their adolescence because their breasts don’t develop as well as their friends. Others simply want to enhance what they already have, creating symmetry and proportion by increasing fullness and volume.

Whatever your reason, Dr. Mayberry will give you the information you need to make a sound decision.

Your breast size and shape likely have a significant impact on your self-image and self-esteem. If you have naturally smaller breasts or have lost volume due to weight loss, pregnancy, or breastfeeding, you may be a candidate for breast augmentation surgery.

If your lack of breast volume is a result of pregnancy or weight loss that affects the appearance of your tummy and breasts, you may wish to consider a Mommy Makeover in addition to a breast enhancement.

Breast Implants

While many patients say they want a natural-looking breast augmentation, natural is in the eye of the beholder! That’s why it’s important to choose a surgeon who has a trained aesthetic eye and can help you choose the best implants to enhance your frame, shape, and body type.

Choosing the Best Implants

Breast implant surgery is the most popular procedure at Mayberry Plastic Surgery and nationwide. During your consultation, Dr. Mayberry will discuss the following:

The range of implants to pick from:

You will be surprised at the broad variety of breast implants. Dr. Mayberry will explain the benefits of each kind so that you can decide which is the right option for you.

The profile of the implant:

The profile of an implant determines how much your breasts project. This could be high, medium, or low profile.

The shape of the implant:

These may be round or teardrop‑shaped.

The position of the implant:

It may be placed over or under the pectoral muscle in the chest.

The location of the incision:

It may be made underneath the breast, around the areola, or in the armpit.

Breast Lift

A breast lift procedure gives you a lifted, more youthful breast contour. It also improves the nipple-areolar complex by moving it to a higher position on the breast itself.

How It’s Performed

Dr. Mayberry performs breast lift surgery under general anesthesia depending on the lift required. After marking the breasts, incisions are made around the areola and the crease under. A vertical incision is made from the areola to the crease, after which the nipple-areolar complex is lifted and the breast is reshaped to a more pleasing contour.

A special bra will be applied to help support the breasts while healing. This bra will be worn 24/7 for several weeks.

Breast Lift With Implants or Reduction Surgery

You may choose a breast lift with implants or a breast lift with a reduction of your breasts. For many women, a breast lift alone will not increase the fullness of the breast. In those cases, we recommend a breast lift with implants. For others, the breasts may need to be reduced in size to achieve the desired appearance.

Male Breast Reduction

Gynecomastia, an abnormal enlargement of the male breasts that can occur at any time in a man’s body, can be stressful for some. Due to embarrassment, they may avoid showing their chests in athletic events as well as at the gym, pool, or beach.

Male breast reduction is an outpatient procedure to reduce the amount of male breast tissue in those with gynecomastia.

About the Condition

About 70% of the male population experiences enlarged breasts during puberty, caused by fluctuations in testosterone and estrogen. In many cases, the problem resolves on its own when hormone levels stabilize, such as when boys reach physical maturity.

Painful names are applied to this condition, including man boobs and moobs, making this a real body-image issue for those who suffer from it.

The condition is also common in older men for the same reason. Specific drugs have been identified as contributing to enlarged breasts, including some antibiotics, heart and antianxiety drugs, treatments for AIDS, chemotherapy, and heartburn medications.

Excessive alcohol, marijuana, and other illicit drugs, such as amphetamines and heroin, can cause gynecomastia. It’s often found in bodybuilders who use steroids for muscle definition.

Who Is a Good Candidate for the Procedure?

Healthy patients and adult men who desire a more masculine chest are good candidates for male breast reduction.

Methods in Gynecomastia Treatment

  • A purple flower with green background

    Removing the excess breast tissue through very small incisions

  • A purple flower with green background

    Removing the glandular breast tissue and extra skin to create a more masculine appearance. We conceal the incisions around the areola as much as possible.

    Liposuction is often used to enhance the results.

Undergoing the Procedure

If liposuction is the agreed-upon procedure, very small incisions are made in the chest, and a sterile tumescent fluid (IV fluids with local anesthetic) is injected into the chest to facilitate fat removal. Once the right amount of fat is removed, the small incisions are closed, and a compression garment is placed on my patient to aid in healing.

If we have decided breast glandular reduction is the best choice, incisions will be made around the areola (nipple complex) and in the natural crease at the bottom of the breast. After we remove the extra tissue, we will confirm that both breasts look as equal as possible.

Some patients benefit from skin tightening on the chest wall, and if you’re one of them, we will perform that as well. Tiny sutures are put in place, and a compression garment is put on the patient. Most require a combination of the two.

Recovering From the Treatment

Patients may have swelling and soreness after either procedure, which is usually relieved with ice packs and prescription pain medication. They are to avoid any exercise during the healing period, other than walking. The compression garment is worn 24 hours a day, for approximately four weeks.
