Breast Augmentation

You can add volume to your breasts and add curves to your profile all in one procedure: breast enlargement surgery. Some women choose larger breasts to balance their overall appearance. In this way, breast augmentation creates an attractive symmetry that suits your natural beauty. You might simply want larger breasts, or wish to regain the shape you lost after pregnancy or due to aging or weight loss.

Breast Lift


A breast lift can help enhance your natural beauty and restore your youthful profile. Breast lift plastic surgery corrects sagging breasts, or brings back fullness that may have been lost. If it is appropriate and desired for you, Dr. Yu can combine your breast lift surgery with a breast implant. This is helpful if pregnancy, breast feeding, weight loss, or aging have affected the size of your breasts.

Breast Reduction



Overly large breasts can cause physical pain, such as neck and back, especially for athletic women involved with certain sports. Women may also feel defined and limited by the size of their breasts, which for them are too large, and may cause psychological pain, such as self-consciousness.  Breast reduction surgery offers patients an opportunity to enjoy attractive breasts and figure without the possible negative ramifications of larger breasts.

Breast Implant Exchange and Removal

Dr. Yu is accomplished in removing and, if desired, replacing breast implants from previous surgeries. Whether you wish to have older silicone-filled implants replaced with more up-to-date saline implants, or you simply want to have your implants removed altogether, you can rely on the experience and precision of Dr. Yu. 

Breast Implant Corrective Revision

Sometimes, breast implant removal is necessary to treat problems that occur with the implants. The three most common reasons for breast implant removal are change of size and shape, implant leakage or rupture, and capsular contracture.

Breast Reconstruction

Some women conquer breast cancer but lose one or both breasts during their struggle with the disease. Women don’t have to settle for the results of mastectomy surgery.  If you have lost all or part of a  breast to cancer or another condition, breast reconstruction plastic surgery can be a physically and emotionally rewarding procedure. 

Male Chest Contouring

Enlarged male breasts affect a large portion of the male population. This condition, called gynecomastia, or more casually “man boobs”, can be exacerbated by liver disorders, a history of cancer, or the use of drugs such as anabolic steroids, marijuana and alcohol. Many men suffer from gynecomastia with no known cause and many claim to be self-conscious about it. A male breast reduction surgery can re-contour your chest, giving you a flatter, firmer, more masculine profile and increase your confidence.
