For most women, the appearance of their breasts is closely tied to their sense of femininity and sensuality. Yet not every woman is born with the full, perky breasts and the attractive nipples or areolas they desire. Time can also take its toll on breast appearance, causing drooping and sagging. Fortunately, advances in breast enhancement surgery allow plastic surgeon Dr. Carlos Chacon to achieve improvement for many women.
Conversely, for men, the appearance of their chest is closely tied to their sense of masculinity. The desire to have a more muscular or defined chest is a very difficult task on account of overdeveloped breast tissue and fat distribution called gynecomastia. Gynecomastia surgery allows Dr. Carlos Chacon to achieve aesthetic goals for many men.
At Divino Plastic Surgery, both men and women can undergo breast procedures. Dr. Chacon and his team of experts want to help you reach your aesthetic goals whether you want bigger breasts or you want them reduced. To learn more about breast procedures, request a consultation at Divino Plastic Surgery today.
Breast Enhancement Procedures
- Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation in San Diego with implants is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures in Southern California. There are many reasons why women seek breast enlargement. Some San Diego women feel that increasing their breast size will give them greater self-confidence. Others would like to feel more proportional between their top and bottom so they fit better into their clothing. Mothers frequently seek breast augmentation to restore what was lost with breastfeeding and aging. Supporting loose skin and giving upper breast fullness are also common reasons for choosing breast augmentation.
- Breast Augmentation with a Lift
There is a large group of women who require two breast procedures, an augmentation and a lift, to achieve optimal breast shape. These San Diego breast enhancement patients typically have nursed children or lost a substantial amount of weight so that their breast skin begins to droop.
- Breast Lift
The youthful shape of your breasts may be lost following pregnancy, weight loss or aging. Over time, the skin and internal ligaments of your breasts lose elasticity, allowing your breast tissue to drop to a lower position. Instead of being round and perky, your breasts may become broad and flat, but supporting the breasts in a bra may only accentuate the skin wrinkles in the cleavage area. For these problems, a breast lift in San Diego is the optimal treatment.
- Breast Reduction and Lift
Breast reduction surgery patients in San Diego are among the happiest of all plastic surgery patients because they both look better and feel better following surgery. When women have large, burdensome breasts, they frequently suffer from a condition called symptomatic macromastia. Symptomatic macromastia is considered to be a medical problem that may include pain in the neck, shoulders, breasts, and upper or lower back, bra strap indentations, rashes underneath the breasts, finger or hand numbness, difficultly exercising, fitting into clothing or examining the breasts. A lift can be combined with this procedure to provide a more round and perky appearance.

- Breast Implant Revision
San Diego patients who require breast implant revision tend to research plastic surgeons for a specialist in that field. Dr. Chacon has performed thousands of breast cosmetic surgeries and shared his experience with plastic surgeons in training on topics in cosmetic breast surgery. In addition, Dr. Chacon has worked closely with clinical investigators for the newest generation of breast implants for two of the largest breast implant manufacturers. Because of his background, patients from all over seek him out for breast implant revision surgery.
- Breast Asymmetry Correction
Breast asymmetry correction surgery in San Diego is one of the most common problems Dr. Chacon confronts as a specialist in plastic surgery of the breast. In his initial consultations, he finds that patients are sometimes unaware of their own breast asymmetry. Breasts vary greatly between people and, in some cases, between a patient’s left and right sides. Identifying these differences early is important in planning for the ideal surgical outcome.
- Breast Reconstruction
Patients who are given the diagnosis of breast cancer have many decisions to make regarding their treatment. For those who choose to have a mastectomy, Dr. Chacon is pleased to tell his breast reconstruction patients in San Diego that reconstructive options are better than ever.
- Nipple and Areola Surgeries
A common complaint for women is that they have enlarged or asymmetrical areolas, especially following breastfeeding. The areola is the pigmented region of the breast that surrounds the nipple. It is also common for men and women to complain of puffy areolas. They are typically most prominent when the patient is warm and when the smooth muscle of the areola is not constricted. Depending on the extent of their problem, there are several different nipple surgery options for San Diego patients.
- Male Breast Procedures
You’ve heard all the derogatory terms, but while excess breast tissue in men is an easy target for jokes, it’s also an extremely common condition. The embarrassment men feel can have a negative effect on their lives. Many will avoid removing their shirts at the beach or wear layers of clothes to hide their bodies. Fortunately in San Diego, male breast reduction is a simple, effective way to attain a more masculine-looking chest.
Many women seeking breast enhancement have concerns about other areas as well. Breast surgeries may be combined with other procedures for women seeking more comprehensive change. Some examples are the Mommy Makeover and plastic surgery after weight loss. Dr. Chacon and his team can help realize your goals after a thorough assessment and discussion of your expectations.
