When a woman’s breasts are ideally proportioned with her figure, it creates a sense of aesthetic harmony. But cosmetic concerns like asymmetry, sagging, or breasts that appear too small or too large can throw that balance off. With breast surgery options like breast augmentation, breast lift, and breast reduction, women can achieve a balanced, rejuvenated shape.
Breast surgery is also an option for men suffering from gynecomastia, as it can help them achieve a more masculine chest contour. Lastly, some men seek augmentation of their pectoral muscles in order to achieve a look of greater chest muscle development. This can be achieved by using anatomically shaped pectoral implants.
Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. David Cangello takes an artistic approach to breast surgery, allowing him to produce exquisite, natural-looking results that seamlessly match a patient’s figure and physique. His renowned results have made him a surgeon of choice for models from the world’s leading agencies, including Wilhelmina Models, IMG Models, and Next Management.

Dissatisfaction with breast size is one of the most common cosmetic complaints from women. Breast augmentation allows women to enhance both the shape and size of their breasts with implants suited to their natural frame. This highly customizable procedure offers many options for women:
- Type of implants (saline or silicone)
- Shape and texture of implants
- Size of implants
- Placement of incision
- Placement of implants
At your personal consultation for breast surgery in NYC, Dr. Cangello will help you make the decision that’s best for you based on your anatomy and available breast tissue. Whether you’d like subtle or bold enhancements, you will be provided with a custom treatment plan that is completely tailored to your preferences.
Fat Transfer to Breast
While breast implants can produce exceptional results, not all women are candidates for them. For patients who aren’t candidates for breast implants or who simply want a different option, fat transfer is an excellent alternative. This innovative procedure can provide a modest improvement using the patient’s own fat.
For optimal results, patients considering breast enhancement via fat transfer should choose a surgeon who is an expert in this technique. Dr. Cangello is one of only two surgeons in the world personally trained by the pioneer of fat transfer techniques: Dr. Sydney Coleman. Dr. Coleman and Dr. Cangello also practiced together for two years. His invaluable mentorship gave Dr. Cangello the expertise needed to deliver long-lasting results for patients seeking natural-looking breast enhancement.
You may notice that your breasts no longer have the youthful look they once had. Over time, the breast skin may lose elasticity and the breasts may begin to sag, so that they don’t sit as high on the chest as they once did. A breast lift can effectively correct these cosmetic issues, allowing you to look as great as you feel.
With a breast lift, Dr. Cangello will trim excess skin, remodel the breast tissue and ultimately lift the breasts to a more youthful position on the chest. Since a breast lift alone cannot restore volume, many women choose to have this procedure performed with a breast augmentation for a fully rejuvenated look.
Overly-large breasts can cause significant discomfort for women – including skin irritation, neck pain, and back pain – in addition to negatively affecting self-esteem. Large breasts can also make it difficult to wear certain types of clothing and engage in sports or other physical activities. For women suffering from these or similar symptoms, a breast reduction can significantly improve quality of life and produce a more balanced figure. Breast reduction surgery removes excess fat, skin, and glandular tissue to make the breasts more proportionate to the body. The nipples and areolas can also be reduced in size and repositioned, if needed.

If you are unhappy with the outcome of a prior breast surgery such as a lift, an augmentation or a reduction, you can attain the results you desire with breast revision surgery. Or, perhaps you want to change the type or size of your implants now that your tastes have evolved. Breast revision surgery can also correct complications like capsular contracture and implant malposition. Whether a functional complication is affecting your implants or you’re just unhappy with their current look, Dr. Cangello can beautifully restore your breasts to an ideal appearance and correct any complications that may have arisen.
Male Breast Reduction
Many men strive to have a well-defined chest, but for those suffering from gynecomastia, no amount of exercise will reduce enlarged breasts. Enlarged breasts in men can detract from an otherwise fit physique and make you look heavier than you actually are. Male breast enlargement can often make men feel uncomfortable with their appearance and male breast reduction surgery can address this issue. Dr. Cangello uses a variety of surgical techniques to eliminate excess glandular breast tissue and remove fatty deposits so you can achieve a flatter, more masculine chest.
Male Pectoral Augmentation
Another popular breast surgery for men is pectoral augmentation. Male pectoral augmentation is a procedure that achieves the look of ideal chest muscle definition using implants. These implants are designed to match the anatomical contours of pectoral muscles, ensuring truly natural-looking results that blend seamlessly with a patient’s chest.
Breast Surgery – FAQs
Recovery depends on which procedure you’ve undergone, but you can expect an overall recovery period of about four-to-six weeks for most types of breast surgery. After waking from surgery, you will have sterile surgical dressings covering your incisions, and you will be required to wear a post-surgical bra to facilitate healing. Male patients will be asked to wear a compression garment after surgery for gynecomastia, instead. You may feel some tightness or mild pain during the first few days, but most patients are able to resume regular daily activities one week after breast surgery. However, strenuous physical activity should be avoided for four-to-six weeks.
Your ability to breastfeed after breast surgery depends on many factors, including the type of procedure you had, whether glandular breast tissue was removed, and if your milk ducts were affected by the procedure. During your breast surgery consultation, Dr. Cangello will discuss the impact that your particular breast surgery may have on your ability to breastfeed.
The tuberous breast deformity is a congenital condition that causes the breasts to have a tube-like or elongated appearance. For women with tuberous breasts, Dr. Cangello will perform a modified breast augmentation and likely a circumareolar (scar that only goes around the areola) breast lift that will meticulously reshape the breast tissue for a balanced appearance. The lift is useful for both elevating the nipple position, which is often low with tuberous breasts, and reducing the size of the areola, which is frequently enlarged.
Breast implants are limited in the amount of lift they can provide. If the nipple position is up to approximately 1.5 cm lower than it should be, breast augmentation alone may be able to elevate the nipple to the proper position. But patients with more severe levels of sagging will need to undergo a breast lift. A breast lift performed with a breast augmentation is a common surgical combination, and it is a popular choice for women undergoing a Mommy Makeover.
