Breast & Body Plastic Surgery Procedures

Breast and Body Surgery can come with a lot to think about. Here, we break down the terms so that you can understand what surgery options are available to you and what might be the best pick for you.


Breast Augmentation

This surgery enhances your breast size or shape. Breast augmentation surgery can also help with breasts that have lost elasticity and volume due to pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Breast Reduction

Breast reduction surgery can be a life-altering experience. Sometimes larger breasts can get in the way of your everyday life. A reduction can remove neck pain and improve spine health.

Breast Implant Exchange or Removal

Implants may need to be removed for several different reasons. You may be a candidate for this procedure if you aren’t happy with your implants or you need to adjust the size of your implants whether larger or smaller.

Breast Reconstruction

Breast reconstruction often involves multiple procedures performed in stages and can either begin at the time of mastectomy or be delayed until a later date.

Breast reconstruction generally falls into two categories: implant-based reconstruction or flap reconstruction. Implant reconstruction relies on breast implants to help form a new breast mound. Flap (or autologous) reconstruction uses the patient’s tissue from another body part to form a new breast.

Several factors should be taken into consideration when choosing which option is best:

  • Type of mastectomy
  • Cancer treatments
  • Patient’s body type

Breast Reduction

Women can suffer for years from the strain caused by weight on their upper and lower backs. They suffer from rashes in their breast folds, bra straps cutting into their skin, limitations in exercise, and even headaches caused by the constant weight of the breasts.

Breast Lift

Breast lift (mastopexy) surgery restores a round, youthful shape to breasts that have begun to sag. This procedure is ideal for women who want to improve their breasts’ elevation without making them larger. Mastopexy can also be combined with breast augmentation surgery to enhance fullness while simultaneously making the breasts more pert and symmetrical.

Nipple/Areola Sugery

Did you know there are up to eight different types of nipples? They can be divided, flat, inverted, multiple, or protruding on one or both breasts, meaning you could have a combination of nipple types.


Brachioplasty (Arm Lift)

The skin loses its elastic properties and begins to sag as we age. This problem is more common in women than men because of the muscle structure in the arms. Many women go to the gym to resolve this problem, yet there are limits to how much this can help because of the differences between men and women. This sagging is there naturally, yet when a candidate is aging or has severe weight loss, these sags are far more pronounced.

BBL (Brazilian Butt Lift)

Many women strive for an appearance that empowers them to become better versions of themselves. A BBL (Brazilian Butt Lift) is one way they seek to achieve this. While this enhances and heightens the form of the buttocks, the hips and waist are contoured simultaneously.

One great thing about the procedure is less chance of rejection from the body because the patient’s fat cells are injected back into the buttocks to deliver the curvaceous shape you are looking for.

Labiaplasty Surgery

Labiaplasty is a surgical vaginal rejuvenation procedure that aims to improve the size and shape of the inner labia. It involves trimming off the excess tissue of the labia minora, leaving the labia majora (outer labia) intact.

One of the worst things for any woman is to feel uncomfortable in her body. This can have a serious effect on confidence. When this area contains something as intimate as the appearance of their labia, it can easily cause daily frustration.

The impact on self-confidence leads to frustration. Sex drive and discomfort when performing some activities have a major impact on a woman’s life when she can’t perform them as she wishes. Labiaplasty can help resolve these issues by reducing the size of the labia to something that can be smaller and thinner, resulting in a more comfortable size, shape, and appearance.


Liposuction is a procedure where stubborn pockets of fat are sucked out of the body through a tube and vacuum device. Liposuction is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures in the world, and it has evolved over the years to take advantage of technological advances.

Mommy Makeover

This is one of the most customizable plastic surgery procedures available because it combines any procedure into a complete restorative operation. A typical mommy makeover in Paradise Valley involves three procedures: breast lift, tummy tuck, and body contouring.

Some women choose to have additional procedures added, such as breast augmentation, to restore the volume and youthful position of the breasts.

Some women turn to this surgery to help them reclaim their pre-pregnancy figure and confidence, while others hope (and receive) something even better.

Thigh Lift

Thigh lift surgery treats thighs that have excessive fatty tissue and sagging skin. Dr. Gruszynski offers thigh lift surgery, a popular procedure among patients unhappy with their thighs and below-the-belt figures. Thigh lift surgery makes the thighs look slimmer, and the patient’s figure look more youthful.

Abdominoplasty (Tummy Tuck)

If you have excess belly fat, love handles that have not responded to diet and exercise, and lax skin in the abdominal area, a Tummy Tuck might be a good choice for you. A Tummy Tuck might also benefit you if you have stretched/separated abdominal muscles, usually due to pregnancy. Liposuction alone may be a better option if you only have excess fat without loose skin.
