The doctors Napa Solano Plastic Surgery have been Northern California innovators in cosmetic breast surgery. Their patients over the years have been happy with the pleasing natural results of beast augmentation, breast lifting, and breast reduction, all common operations performed by the doctors. These are safe operations with predictable outcomes and a quick recovery. Innovative techniques, new operations, and new materials have given today’s patients better options to obtain their desired results.
The operations are done as an outpatient in our two nationally certified office surgery centers typically under general anesthesia performed by board certified anesthesiologist (MD’s). They use the newest medications and techniques to ensure a safe and gentle experience.

Breast Augmentation is one of the country’s most common operations. It is done to increase breast size and to improve the breast shape by using breast implants. Dr. William McClure was among the first surgeons in Northern California to utilize endoscopic surgery allowing them to do the operation through a small well-hidden incision placed in the axilla (armpit).
Our doctors were part of the long term study on the safety of silicone gel implants and can now offer their patients a wide variety of the safe and the most modern silicone gel implants available, as well as the popular saline implants.
For patients with drooping breasts and low nipples, we offer excellent options for Breast Lifting, the operation called Mastopexy. This operation “lifts” the breasts and repositions the nipples to correct the drooping due to genetics, age, pregnancy and nursing, and weight gain. For women with drooping breast that lack fullness, a breast augmentation can be done at the same time as Mastopexy.
Excessively heavy and large breasts droop as well. This condition is associated with chronic back, neck and shoulder pain. Women with very large breasts are considered “over proportioned” and find it difficult to comfortably take part in many activities or to find appropriate bras and clothing. They can feel awkward or self conscious in certain settings when attention is directed to their breasts. This is especially troubling for teenage girls. The Breast Reduction operation both reduces the breast size and lifts the breast to correct the sagging.
Breast Reconstruction is the answer for women who have lost their breast or a portion of their breast in the treatment of breast cancer. The surgeons of Napa Solano Plastic Surgery work closely with the oncologists, radiation therapists, and breast surgeons in our communities to help women navigate this path to recovery. Our doctors have been recognized for their work with breast cancer survivors during this time when many plastic surgeons have chosen not to do breast reconstruction because of poor insurance reimbursements. The doctors accept all breast cancer patients into their practice regardless of their ability to pay or the type of insurance they carry.

Breast Augmentation is a safe and common operation, performed to enhance breast size and to improve breast shape. The best candidates for breast augmentation are women who are looking for improvement, in the way they look. If you’re physically healthy and realistic in your expectations, you may be a good candidate.
Mastopexy (Breast Lift)
The Breast Lifting procedure, also called Mastopexy, elevates the breasts giving women a more youthful shape. Breasts droop because there is too much skin. The lifting is accomplished by removing extra skin which requires leaving scars on the lower surface of the breasts. These scars are well hidden beneath clothing and swim wear. In most cases they become flat lines.
