Breast : The female breast is composed of skin, fat, breast tissue and the nipple and areolar complex. The relationships of these structures give the breast it's unique size and shape. We enhance this size and shape with fat graft and breast implants and we reconstruct it after mastectomy with implant, flaps, fat graft and any combination of those techniques.
