Breast Enhancement Q & A

What is breast enhancement?

If you're unhappy with your breasts, cosmetic surgery is one possible solution. Breast enhancements are surgical procedures that alter the look and feel of your breasts. Breast surgery can include:

  • Breast augmentation to increase breast size
  • Breast reduction to reduce breast size
  • Breast lifts to increase volume and create fuller breasts


Many patients have several goals for their breast-enhancement procedure. Breast augmentation with lift is an especially popular breast enhancement procedure for women of all ages. This procedure combines several surgical techniques to create larger, firmer, and more youthful-looking breasts.

Breast surgery can also include reconstructive procedures to help cancer survivors regain their natural breast size and shape after a mastectomy. Patients who have undergone other types of major chest surgery can also opt for plastic surgery to help with the reconstruction process.

Am I a good candidate for breast enhancement?

The best candidates for breast-enhancement procedures are in good overall health. Patients who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or undergoing cancer treatment will not be eligible for some forms of breast surgery.

As with all plastic surgery, it's important to have realistic expectations for your surgical outcomes. But breast enhancement can help most patients meet their aesthetic goals. Breast surgery can:

  • Increase your breast size or volume
  • Remove excess breast tissue
  • Reshape your breast
  • Resize or reposition your areolas
  • Replace existing implants


To find out if breast enhancement is right for you, schedule a consultation with Dr. Clavijo-Alvarez. During your consultation, he’ll review your medical history and your aesthetic goals. He can help you decide which breast-enhancement procedure will meet your goals.

Most surgeries are performed on an outpatient basis. An overnight hospital stay is seldom required. Breast-enhancement patients can usually return to their normal lifestyle within two weeks. Dr. Clavijo-Alvarez will let you know when it’s safe to resume your favorite athletic activities.

What kind of results can I expect?

You could continue to experience some swelling as your incisions heal. Full results generally appear within two to three months.

Breast enhancement surgery at ReNova can boost your confidence and self-image. Dr. Clavijo-Alvarez never performs “cookie-cutter” surgeries. Instead, he works to help each patient achieve natural-looking results.

How much does a breast-enhancement procedure cost?

Surgery costs can vary. Your final price will depend on which surgeon you chose, what procedure you select, and your geographic area. Breast-enhancement procedures in the Pittsburgh area typically range from $6,000–$12,000.
