Breast enhancement can address a number of issues you may be having about the appearance of your breasts and have a positive impact on your entire body. Whether you feel that your breasts make you look older than you really are after taking on a “saggy” appearance, or if you would like to add volume and fullness to the breasts for better contours, or if you are affected by excess breast tissue and fat deposits that cause your breasts to appear too large for your body frame, doctors at the Ohio State University Department of Plastic Surgery can help. Many of our plastic surgeons are specialty-trained in breast surgery and can give you effective procedures with beautiful, natural-looking results. In addition to the many breast enhancement and breast reduction options we offer to our female patients, our surgeons can also perform breast reduction procedures for men who suffer from gynecomastia. The OSU Department of Plastic Surgery also maintains a renowned program offering treatment for women who would like to restore the breasts after mastectomy with breast reconstruction.
At the Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Center within the Ohio State University Department of Plastic Surgery, we understand the need for patients to be comfortable and confident with the appearance of their breasts, and we are here to provide you with skilled plastic surgeons, effective treatment options, and successful results.

Breast Augmentation with Implants
Women who would like to add fullness to the breasts can attain their goals with breast augmentation. Breast enlargement with saline or silicone breast implants is one of the most popular aesthetic enhancement procedures in America, benefitting millions of women who are trying to achieve a more contoured and sensual appearance to the breasts.
The doctors at the OSU Department of Plastic Surgery offer a variety of breast implants types, sizes and shapes. During your consultation our doctors will discuss the benefits of the various implant types and styles to help each patient determine which implant is best.
Pregnancy, recent weight loss, and the effects of gravity and aging can cause the breasts to take on a “saggy” appearance that may be causing you to look older than you actually are. A breast lift is an effective procedure designed to eliminate loose, excess skin from the breasts and tighten the remaining skin. Breast lift surgery can give the breasts a smoother, “perkier” look and restore youth and vibrancy to your appearance.
Women with breasts that are too large for their bodies can suffer from discomfort, back and shoulder pain, difficulty fitting into desired clothing, and extreme self-consciousness. Overly large breasts can be reduced with breast reduction surgery designed to remove excess tissue and fat. This procedure can be very effective in making your breasts more proportionate to your body frame.
Male Breast Reduction
Gynecomastia is a common condition affecting men that causes an excess of skin, fat, and/or glandular tissue to accumulate in the breast area. The condition often causes embarrassment and self-consciousness, and can even lead to depression. Male breast reduction surgery from our OSU plastic surgeons can significantly improve the effects of gynecomastia and give the chest area a flatter appearance.
