Breast Lift

Breast lift surgery—medically referred to as mastopexy—can be an ideal solution for women who wish to resolve moderate to significant breast drooping. With this popular procedure, Dr. Turkeltaub can remove excess skin, elevate the breasts and resize/reposition the nipple-areolar complexes for an improved breast contour, projection and overall appearance.

Breast Implant Removal (Explantation)

Breast implant removal—also called explantation—involves the permanent removal of implants and any surrounding scar tissue (if necessary or desired). Whether the motivation for pursuing explantation is due to changes in lifestyle and/or aesthetic preferences, the occurrence of implant related issues or for a number of other reasons, Dr. Turkeltaub is highly skilled in achieving the breast appearance his patients desire through customized surgical planning and treatment.

A capsulectomy is a surgery performed to remove part or all of the scar tissue (capsule) that forms around breast implants following their placement. This procedure is indicated for a variety of different reasons with the most common being for the treatment of capsular contracture—an undesirable constriction and hardening of the scar capsule that can cause aesthetic deformities, an overly firm breast feel and potentially even pain. Dr. Turkeltaub is greatly experienced in performing partial and total capsulectomies (including the en bloc method), enabling him to identify and employ the safest, most effective technique based on each individual’s unique case.
