Breast Enhancement in Tampa, FL
Many major events in a woman’s life, such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, and aging all affect the breasts. These physical changes can make a woman feel self-conscious and uncomfortable. Brandon-Dzung Mang, M.D., is a highly experienced and respected plastic surgeon. He is board certified under the American Board of Plastic Surgery and has been helping women in the Tampa and St. Petersburg areas restore their former, more youthful curves and contours through breast enhancement surgery.
Of the breast enhancement surgeries, breast augmentation is the procedure that is the most common. This procedure will increase the size, enhance the shape, and provide better symmetry of the breasts. Breast augmentation surgery is popular among women who are unhappy with their breast size and shape or have lost volume due to pregnancy/breastfeeding, aging, or weight loss. In addition to cosmetic reasons, breast implants are often used for reconstructive purposes. Breast augmentation surgery results in fuller breasts that look and feel natural for the patient. Many women not only experience an enhanced appearance and better fitting clothing, but also improved self-confidence.
Breast Augmentation/Breast Surgery
Breast augmentation surgery is a procedure that restores fullness to a woman’s breasts through the use of implants. Dr. Brandon Mang offers a variety of implants, including silicone, saline and other materials, that can help achieve natural results. He will discuss the breast augmentation options with his patients to make sure that they are comfortable with the process. Depending on a woman’s anatomy and her desired outcome, Dr. Mang will use one of the following incision techniques to place her breast implants:
- Inframammary – incision made underneath the breast
- Periareolar – incision made around the areola
- Transaxillary – incision made within the armpit
- Transumbilical – incision made just above the belly button
Dr. Brandon Mang understands that every woman has specific and unique desires about her body and the way she would like her breasts to look. One of his main goals is to create a customized plan for each patient.

Enhancing your appearance with a breast lift raises and firms the breasts. This procedure removes excess skin and tightens the surrounding tissue that has often lost firmness to reshape and support the new breast contour. A woman’s breasts may often change over time, losing their youthful shape and firmness due to pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight fluctuations, and aging.

Excessively large, heavy breasts can be uncomfortable, unhealthy and unattractive. Often times, large breasts can restrict certain activities, causing problems with posture and even breathing problems. Many women are very self-conscious if they have unusually large or pendulous breasts. Breast reduction (reduction mammoplasty) removes fat, glandular tissue, and excessive skin, resulting in smaller, lighter and firmer breasts that are in proportion to the rest of the body.
Breast reconstruction is a procedure that is performed after a breast has been removed due to cancer or another cause. There are many new medical advances, techniques and devices that have made it possible for surgeons to create a breast that can come close in appearance to matching a natural breast.

Breast Implant Exchange
Over time, women may want to have their breast implants removed and exchanged for new implants. While breast implant revision procedures are sometimes required due to leaking implants or hardening of the implant (capsular contracture), more often it is performed in order to change the cup size or the type of implant that was used in the original surgery.

Male Breast Reduction
Excess or abnormal breast tissue in men (gynecomastia) is an extremely common condition that is very rarely discussed. One out of three American men suffer from some degree of enlarged breasts. This condition can be the source of embarrassment when wearing certain clothing and a loss of self-esteem. Fortunately, for most men, the best solution to reduce and reshape their breast is through surgery. The effects of this procedure result in a more toned masculine looking chest.
