The LoVerme Center for Plastic Surgery employs the latest technological innovations in cosmetic breast enhancement. Our breast augmentation, breast reduction, and breast reconstruction patients feel at ease knowing that these procedures have been a special focus of Dr. Paul LoVerme for decades. Our Northern New Jersey office also offers mastopexy (breast lift), correction of inverted nipples and areolar reduction.
During your breast surgery consultation with Dr. LoVerme, he will discuss all of your options and answer any questions that you may have so that you can make the most informed decision about your treatment.
The following are brief descriptions of some of our most common breast surgeries, with links to more detailed explanations of the procedures. Contact our office for further information or to schedule a consultation.
Breast Augmentation (Enlargement)
For the woman who feels that her breasts are too small or not properly contoured, cosmetic breast enlargement through surgical breast augmentation may be the answer. Dr. LoVerme specializes in breast augmentation and has been performing the procedure for over 20 years for patients. You’ll find that a consultation in our office is different than most and much more informative for you. You will view a personally prepared computer presentation and see a lot of before and after photos, all of whom are Dr. LoVerme’s patients (many can be seen in our photo gallery). All of your questions will be answered, including implant type (saline or silicone gel), shape, size, position and incision placement. After a comprehensive physical exam, a customized plan will be developed for YOU. All bodies are different and women have different desires. Remember that this is surgery that is dependent on the expertise of the surgeon that you select and the time spent before the surgery correlates with your result. Price should not be your only criterion.
Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
Here in our office, breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure designed to raise and reshape sagging breasts. If your breasts are small or have lost volume – for example, after pregnancy – breast implants can be inserted in conjunction with mastopexy to increase both the firmness and the size of the breast. Breast lift surgery can be performed with or without an implant.
There are many types of breast lift incisions. Dr.LoVerme uses the shortest incision possible for your procedure; this may be simply around the areola (with areolar reduction if needed), a vertical mastopexy (often referred to as a lolli-pop incision) or a partial or full “anchor” incision.
Breast reduction relieves the physical discomfort often associated with very large breasts and enhances the overall appearance of the breasts and bustline. Breast reduction, as performed at our center serving New York and New Jersey, involves the careful removal of excess breast tissue, fat, and skin to create smaller, firmer breasts.
Breast reconstruction surgery is an ideal procedure for women who have undergone mastectomy. At the New Jersey office of The LoVerme Center for Plastic Surgery, Dr. Paul LoVerme has the technology and expertise to recreate the shape of your natural breasts.
The areola is the pink or dark-skinned area that surrounds the nipple. Sometimes, people have naturally large areolas, or the areola can become stretched due to pregnancy and breastfeeding or the natural aging process. For those who are self-conscious about the appearance of their areolas, Dr. Paul LoVerme offers areola reduction surgery.
Inverted Nipple Correction
For women with inverted nipples, problems with breastfeeding and insecurity about the appearance of their breasts are common. Dr. LoVerme can help by way of a procedure that corrects the projection of the nipples while preserving their sensitivity and without cutting the milk-ducts for breastfeeding. Inverted nipple correction can also be performed on males who are self-conscious about their appearance.
Laser Bra and Laser-Assisted Breast Surgery
This revolutionary form of breast enhancement, developed by Dr. W. Grant Stevens, uses excess skin to provide internal support while lifting the breasts and nipples. It is a long-lasting, viable alternative for breast reduction and breast lift surgeries. Laser bra breast reduction involves the same type of incision as a traditional breast reduction without the need to separate the nipple from underlying tissue.
Gynecomastia is a very common condition among men that is characterized by excess tissue in the breasts. It can cause extreme self-consciousness and have a significant effect on one’s daily life. Dr. LoVerme offers advanced treatment options, including liposuction and male breast reduction surgery, that can successfully address gynecomastia.
