Asymmetric Breast Correction
Breast asymmetry has caused women to feel uncomfortable, embarrassed and self-conscious about their bodies. Minor breast asymmetry affects most women and does not require correction. For major asymmetry, Dr. Markarian offers a variety of surgical solutions.
A Breast augmentation surgery is performed to increase the size and refine the shape of breasts using implants. Many patients who have received a breast augmentation have reported the psychological benefits. This is just one of the reasons why breast augmentations have become one of the most requested cosmetic surgeries.

A minimal incision technique was utilized with a small incision camouflaged along the lower border of the areola. No additional incisions were made.
Breasts can sag for a variety of reasons, such as: weight loss, breastfeeding and volume loss over time. A breast lift, or breast augmentation with lift, increases the overall size and shape of the breasts in addition to enhancing their firmness and contour.

Capsular Contracture Treatment
Capsular Contracture occurs as a hard capsule forms around a breast implant. This can cause physical pain and discomfort, and may also cause breasts to look misshapen and asymmetric. Dr. Markarian can advise on treatment options and perform implant removal, or remove and replace, surgery for patients.
