Breast Surgery | Los Angeles | Dr. Brian Kinney

Doctor Brian Kinney understands that Body image is an important part of feeling good, desirable and normal. Most women compare themselves to a cultural idea of beauty. Having a cosmetic breast procedure can greatly improve self-esteem for many women. It can make a woman feel more like the ideal and can drastically improve the way she views herself.

Cosmetic breast surgery

Breast enhancement or augmentation with breast implants is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic procedures in the United States today. It can dramatically improve the appearance of a woman's breasts.

Breast augmentation usually takes about 2 hours. One of the more frequent techniques used requires an incision under the lower portion of the breast near the chest wall or under the lower portion of the areola (the darker area around your nipple). A less frequently used incision site is the armpit. After the incision is made, a pocket is created in the breast tissue or beneath the chest wall muscle. The implant is securely positioned in the pocket, and small sutures are used to close the incision. When inflatable implants are used, Dr. Brian Kinney can adjust the amount of inflation.

Some of the new, inflatable, saline-filled implants make it possible to insert the implant using a tiny instrument called an endoscope through a single, small incision. (more)

A breast lift, or mastopexy, to elevate and reshape the breast providing a youthful appearance. A breast lift is often performed in conjunction with breast augmentation.

A breast lift may take 2 hours depending on the complexity. One of the more frequent methods utilizes three incisions: one on each side of the breast which connect to a keyhole-shaped incision above the nipple. Working through the incisions, excess skin is removed from the lower portion of the breast. The breast tissue is lifted into the higher position, and the nipple placed in the keyhole incision. Sutures are used to connect the skin on both sides of the breast and around the nipple. (more)

Large, sagging or uneven breasts are the source of dissatisfaction and may cause pain from their sheer weight. Some patients find their physical activities restricted or have difficulty finding clothes that fit properly. For these women, a breast reduction or reduction mammoplasty.

A breast reduction can take from 3 - 4 hours depending on its complexity. Frequently, incisions are placed on each side of the breast which connect to a keyhole-shaped incision above the nipple. Working through the incisions, excess skin, fat and tissue are removed from the breast. The breast and the nipple are relocated in the keyhole incision. Sutures are used to connect the skin on both sides of the breast and around the nipple. When breasts are extremely large, the nipple may be completely detached and relocated after excess tissue is removed. (more)
