Dr. James Murphy specializes in breast augmentation. He will work closely with you to meet your aesthetic goals and provide stunning, lifelike results. With 16 years of experience augmenting patients' figures, he has learned to rely on established techniques and implant materials. Thanks to Dr. Murphy’s reputation for excellence, many patients also choose him for their breast revision. If you are dissatisfied with the results of a previous surgery, Dr. Murphy can remove your old implant and help you achieve your original aesthetic goals.
Dr. Murphy offers both silicone and saline implants, and he will help you choose the right one based on your concerns and body type. Both types of implants feature a silicone shell. Silicone implants are filled with a silicone gel, and they are often preferred for their lifelike texture and appearance. Saline implants also have a silicone shell, but they are filled with a saltwater solution. These implants require a smaller incision and in the event of a rupture, the solution will simply be absorbed the body.
A breast lift can restore a perkier, more youthful figure. The treatment is especially helpful if pregnancy, weight loss, or the simple effects of age and gravity have caused your breasts to sag. During the procedure, Dr. Murphy will tighten and remove excess skin. He may also move your nipple and areola, so that they sit in a higher position on your breasts. If needed, he can excise tissue from around your areola.
If your breasts are disproportionately large, you may be unhappy with the appearance of your figure. You may also suffer from significant physical discomfort and a reduced activity level. With a breast reduction, Dr. Murphy will remove excess tissue. In some cases, he may reshape and resize your areola. He can also use liposuction to eliminate stubborn pockets of fat. Following your treatment, you should notice immediate results, which will improve as recovery progresses.
Gynecomastia is a benign condition that causes men to develop excess tissue and fat in their breasts. The procedure for male breast reduction can vary, depending on your particular needs. In some cases, Dr. Murphy may simply use liposuction to remove excess fat deposits. Other cases may call for more extensive surgery. For some men, Dr. Murphy will trim away skin and relocate the areola. He can also combine liposuction with this latter technique.
If you have lost one or both breasts to cancer, Dr. Murphy can restore your figure with breast reconstruction. He will carefully choose from one of several different surgical techniques depending on your unique condition. In some cases, he may use an implant to stretch your skin and create a new breast. In others, he may create a flap, using your own tissues to rebuild your breast. You may choose to undergo reconstruction at the same time as your mastectomy or at a later date.
