How Long Does Breast Reduction Surgery Take?

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on May 24, 2017 11:00:00 AM

In my plastic surgery practice, I have many, many patients who want larger, fuller breasts. However, I also have many patients who would like their breasts to be smaller. Very large breasts, especially on small-framed women, can cause neck pain, back pain, painful indentions on the shoulders, rashes, problems with exercise, self-consciousness and embarrassment. 

If you feel your breasts are too large, especially if they have become cumbersome and uncomfortable, breast reduction surgery can be a very effective solution. As well as reducing the size and weight of your breasts, this procedure also improves the shape of your breasts and nipple areas, allowing you to feel good about yourself and your appearance, sometimes for the first time.

It’s also important to know that I perform breast reduction on men as well, usually due to a condition called gynecomastia in which male breasts are abnormally enlarged.

How Much Does Liposuction Cost?

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on May 17, 2017 11:00:00 AM

If you have tried dieting and exercise but still have stubborn, localized areas of fat that simply will not go away, liposuction could be the answer you’ve been looking for. Liposuction slims and reshapes specific areas of the body by dramatically reducing excess fat deposits and improving your body contours and proportion.

Since fat cells do not reproduce, once they are reduced through liposuction, they will not be replaced—great news for many of my patients. This may be why liposuction is one of today’s most popular cosmetic procedure, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

What to Expect at Your Breast Augmentation Consultation

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on May 10, 2017 11:00:00 AM

Deciding to have breast augmentation surgery is a big decision, impacting how your breasts look and feel for the rest of your life. I feel strongly that the best patient is a well-informed patient. The more information you have about this potentially life-changing surgery, the more realistic your expectations will be and the more satisfied you will be with the results.

Before breast augmentation surgery, a no-fee consultation

Before performing breast augmentation surgery, I offer a no-fee consultation, lasting approximately 45-60 minutes. I thoroughly answer all of your questions so that you are completely comfortable before leaving the office.  During this consultation, I typically:

  • review your medical history
  • discuss your goals and expectations
  • perform an examination including breast measurements
  • review the details of the procedure
  • explain procedure options, including:
    • saline vs. silicone implants
    • round vs. teardrop shape implants
    • incision location (above or below the muscle implant location)
  • recovery time
  • what your “new” breasts will look like post-surgery
  • cost

How Much Does a Brazilian Butt Lift Cost?

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on May 3, 2017 11:00:00 AM

A shapely, toned, full-sized derrière is something many women desire to have today, but few are born with this feature in the proportions that they want. A Brazilian butt lift, which uses your own fat and includes both butt augmentation and butt reshaping, is an excellent way to achieve a fuller, firmer, sexier “behind.” And an added benefit of this popular procedure is that it can also create a more pleasing balance between the shape, size and contour of your buttocks in proportion to the rest of your body.  

With a Brazilian butt lift (also called butt augmentation), the size, shape and fullness of your butt is meticulously and artfully sculpted, giving you amazingly natural-looking results.

Can I Get Pregnant After A Tummy Tuck?

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on Apr 26, 2017 11:00:00 AM

For many of my patients, a tummy tuck is a wonderful turning point in their lives, boosting their self-esteem and enabling them to have a positive body image, sometimes for the first time. Tummy tuck surgery, also known as abdominoplasty, reduces excess fat and skin and helps restore weakened or separated muscles. The result? A smoother, firmer, more attractive midsection.

However, it’s not unusual for a woman to want to get pregnant after having a tummy tuck, and often patients come to me asking of this is safe, or even possible. While it is perfectly safe to get pregnant after a tummy tuck without injuring yourself or the baby, the pregnancy will stretch the abdominal wall muscles and overlying skin, potentially reversing some of the improvements gained by the tummy tuck.

How Much Do Breast Implants Cost?

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on Apr 19, 2017 11:52:59 AM

Would you like larger breasts? Do you want to feel sexier, more sensual and more self-confident as a woman? Now you can have the breast size you’ve always wanted: B cup, C cup, even D cup with breast implants. Breast implants are a safe, highly successful way to achieve the full, beautiful breasts you desire. 

Breast implant surgery is typically performed to enlarge small breasts, underdeveloped breasts or breasts that have decreased in size after a woman has had children. Breast implants can also make breasts more symmetrical if one is significantly larger than the other.

What do breast implants cost?

One of the first questions my patients ask me when they’re considering getting breast implants is how much they will cost. My answer is that there is not one standard price. Every woman’s breasts are unique, and the results she is seeking from breast augmentation surgery are specific to her. That’s why I determine the exact cost of the procedure after I have met with the patient, evaluated her breasts and body type, her overall physical condition and her personal goals and expectations. Then together, we will decide what type of procedure will achieve the best possible results.

If you are a good candidate for breast augmentation without a breast lift or other surgery, you may qualify for our special pricing. For further pricing details, please contact me.

Here’s Why Breast Implants Are Safe

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on Mar 29, 2017 9:00:00 AM

For women who want larger, fuller breasts, breast implants are a safe, highly successful way to get the breast size they’ve always wanted. 

Two types of breast implants available in the US: silicone and saline

Both types of breast implants consist of a silicone outer shell—the difference is what material is inside the implants.

  •  Silicone breast implants are filled with silicone gel (“gummy bear”)
  •  Saline breast implants are filled with saline (sterile saltwater)

10 Questions To Ask Before Getting A Brazilian Butt Lift

Posted by Dr. Samuel J. Beran on Mar 15, 2017 9:00:00 AM

Today, Brazilian butt lift (gluteoplasty) is one of the most-asked-for plastic surgery procedures that I perform. Using your own body fat, the size, shape and fullness of your “behind” can be meticulously and artfully sculpted, giving you amazingly natural-looking results.

The unique advantage of this technique is that it not only builds up the butt but also slims down areas where you have excess fat and want to look trimmer. Many of my patients choose to have fat reduced from their tummy and waist area, resulting in curves in all the right places.
