Patients regularly visit the office of Dr. David T. Morwood for high-quality breast procedures in Monterey. Dr. Morwood’s years of experience and high degree of surgical skill make him an ideal choice for breast surgeries. If you’re interested in a breast procedure, it’s time to find out more about our many options.
If you’re unhappy with the size of your breasts, a breast augmentation procedure is an excellent option. Surgical breast enlargement utilizes breast implants to create new volume and projection for the breasts. This procedure can also correct size asymmetry. Dr. Morwood works with patients to choose the best breast implants for their frame and preferences.
Over the years, as a result of the aging process, genetics, gravity, and breastfeeding, the breasts may begin to sag. A breast lift, also called mastopexy surgery, raises the breasts while improving breast shape and perkiness. It can also address shape asymmetry issues. This procedure involves removal of excess tissue and tightening of the skin.
Mastectomy surgery to address or prevent the occurrence of cancer is part of an incredibly difficult journey, one that can leave a woman feeling uncomfortable in her own body. A breast reconstruction procedure can be a comforting option during this time. This surgery restores the pre-mastectomy appearance of the breasts using any combination of breast implants, flap surgery, tissue expanders, and cosmetic tattooing.
A breast reduction, also known as reduction mammoplasty, allows Dr. Morwood to reduce the size of overly large breasts. By making a woman’s breasts more proportional to her frame, a number of physical issues can be corrected. These include chronic shoulder, neck, and back pain; posture problems; and rashes beneath the breasts. The procedure involves removal of glandular breast tissue, along with resizing and/or repositioning of the nipples and areolae.
Gynecomastia—the condition of having oversized male breasts—affects men due to a number of factors, including hormone level fluctuations, certain medications, recreational drugs, obesity, and various lifestyle factors.
To remove the excess tissue in the chest that causes the appearance of “man boobs,” we perform gynecomastia surgery, also called male breast reduction. This provides effective reduction and contouring, restoring a masculine chest appearance.
