Breast Procedures Des Moines
Interested in undergoing a breast procedure? We offer a variety of breast surgeries to achieve patients’ aesthetic goals. Breast procedures at Des Moines Plastic Surgery include breast augmentation, the breast lift, breast reduction, breast implant exchange, and male breast reduction.
Breast augmentation involves volume-based enhancement of the breasts using silicone or saline breast implants. Placement of these implants results in an increase in breast size and projection. Dr. Robbins helps patients choose their ideal breast implants, working with them to determine optimal implant type, size, shape, texture, and profile. Read more
A breast lift, also called a mastopexy, focuses on removal of excess skin and tightening of the remaining skin to reduce breast sagging. This procedure makes the breasts look perkier and resolves shape asymmetries. The areolae and nipples can also be resized and repositioned. Read more
With a breast reduction (also known as reduction mammoplasty), oversized breasts can be reduced in size. This is incredibly important for women suffering from the physical, emotional, and social effects of oversized breasts. Thanks to this surgery, chronic pain, rashes beneath the breasts, painful bra-strap indentations, and posture issues can all be addressed. Read more
For breast augmentation patients, a breast implant exchange surgery is typically needed every ten to twenty years. This procedure replaces breast implants with new implants. Breast implant exchange is also necessary in cases where implants have experienced a rupture or a leak. Additionally, it can be performed when a patient is interested in changing their implant type, shape, profile, or size. Read more
Gynecomastia is a condition where excess tissue causes the male chest to take on the appearance of male breasts. This can be due to any combination of excess glandular breast tissue, excess fat, and excess skin. To remove the excess tissue, a male breast reduction is performed. This procedure recontours the male chest to restore a more masculine appearance. Read more

Your Breast Procedure Consultation
During your consultation with Dr. Robbins, the two of you will talk about your goals for breast surgery. He will perform a physical examination, and photographs may be taken as a reference. Additionally, Dr. Robbins will ask questions regarding your medical history. This can include current medications and supplements, allergies, and pre-existing medical conditions.
Once you have been found to be a safe candidate for your chosen breast procedure, Dr. Robbins will create a surgical plan. He will go over the details of the surgical plan, including aftercare steps and preparation instructions. Questions are highly encouraged at this time. Finally, a date will be set for the chosen procedure.
The Cost of Breast Procedures
