Breast Enhancement at Tehrani Plastic Surgery
Gynecomastia is a common condition and can be caused by a number of different factors.
Men can develop enlarged breasts as a result of medications, hormone imbalances, recreational drug use, weight fluctuations, or fatty tumors. (1) Regardless of the cause, this condition can be excruciatingly embarrassing. After a compassionate and discreet examination, Dr. Tehrani will be able to determine the best course of treatment to restore masculine contours to your chest. Gynecomastia surgery can include a combination of liposculpture to remove fatty tissue and the surgical removal of any swollen glandular masses. Dr. Tehrani’s expert sutures will be able to conceal the incisions under the breast line for inconspicuous results.
A breast reduction can greatly improve the quality of life for women who are burdened by large breasts. Breast reductions are also known as mammaplasties. Dr. Tehrani removes excess skin, fat, and glandular tissue. This decreases the weight and volume and allows him to sculpt a beautiful set of breasts that compliment the woman’s unique proportions. A breast reduction can have countless health benefits. A more balanced bust can alleviate chronic back and neck pain, resolve skin conditions, and make physical activity more comfortable. (2) Having more wardrobe options never hurts either!
Often performed in conjunction with other breast enhancement procedures, a breast lift, or mastopexy, corrects the projection and placement of the breasts. Pregnancy, breastfeeding, and the pull of gravity with aging can lead to breast ptosis, or sagging. A breast lift removes excess skin to correct the placement of the nipple and gives the breasts a youthful, perky position on the chest. For women otherwise unhappy with the elongated shape of their breasts, a breast lift can offer a rounder, plumper profile without the need for other procedures.
Dr. Tehrani performs breast augmentations to artistically improve volume and curvature for women who desire a more ample bust line. Today’s breast implants are safer than ever, and come in a nearly limitless range of sizes, shapes, and projections. This is a popular procedure: as of 2019, over 300,000 breast augmentations were performed in the US each year. (3) Dr. Tehrani also offers his patients the option of a composite breast augmentation, which used the patient’s own fat removed via liposuction to enlarge the size and perfect the shape of the breasts. This technique can be performed in conjunction with the addition of synthetic breast implants for the ultimate in a voluptuous but natural-looking bosom. Patients that take advantage of Dr. Tehrani’s artistic eye enjoy results that are tailored to their unique body, and enhance all the joys of being a woman.
Breasts are a prominent and high-profile part of our bodies, for better or worse. Whether a desirable symbol of beauty and sexuality, or an embarassing aspect of a patient’s anatomy, there is a breast enhancement procedure that can improve your appearance, comfort, and confidence.

Candidates for Breast Enhancement
Regardless of a patient’s goals, most breast enhancement procedures are surgically invasive and require proper aftercare and recovery time.
Ideal breast enhancement candidates should:
- Be in overall good health
- Be non-smokers or prepared to quit
- Self-motivated to commit to the healing process
- Desire to improve their appearance for their own gratification
Your personal consultation with Dr. Tehrani will be a chance for you to discuss the improvements that you’d like to pursue in a welcoming and professional setting. Together, you’ll review your lifestyle and medical record to ensure that your procedure of choice can be performed safely and deliver satisfying results. Dr. Tehrani will examine your chest, and take photos and measurements. He will then design a procedure that is customized to your needs and harmonizes with your unique anatomy.
The breast tissue contains many important glands: at Tehrani Plastic Surgery, patients’ health and wellbeing always come first. He may order a mammogram or additional testing. Once he’s determined that a patient is an excellent candidate for a breast enhancement procedure, he and his helpful staff will make sure that you are well acquainted with the details of your procedure and know exactly how to prepare for your transformation.

Breast Enhancement Recovery
Breast enhancement recovery will naturally vary from patient to patient based on the healing abilities of their individual bodies. The type of breast enhancement procedure and the details of the operation will also affect the length of the recovery process. However, whether a patient undergoes a breast reduction, lift, augmentation, or gynecomastia procedure, it’s essential that they make the proper preparations for their recovery. Several days to a week of rest will be required. Patients should also ensure that they have someone to drive them home from their procedure and provide assistance for at least the first day afterward.
After your breast enhancement procedure:
- Discomfort is controlled with long-acting local anesthesia and prescription pain medications. Antibiotics will reduce the risk of infection.
- A special postoperative garment or bandages will need to be worn according to Dr. Tehrani’s instructions.
- There will normally be postoperative fluid drainage for several days.
- Dr. Tehrani will closely monitor your recovery during your follow-up appointments
- Suture removal (if any) usually occurs within one to three weeks.
- Depending on your procedure, you’ll be able to resume vigorous activity in two to six weeks.
Although you may notice an improvement immediately after your procedure, the best and final results take time. Once swelling and bruising has diminished, it may take several months for incisions to regress and scarring to fade. Small sacrifices in these months will lead to years of enjoyment, and a lifetime of satisfaction knowing that you’ve chosen not only to enhance your breasts, but taken control of your quality of life.
