Breast Enhancement in Middletown, NJ
Board-certified Red Bank plastic surgeon Dr. John Taylor performs breast enhancement for area residents who feel their breasts are too large, too small, or simply do not have the shape they used to have.
Many women seek breast enhancement procedures to correct or balance the shape of their breasts as well as enhance the contour of their body or reconstruct one or both breasts following injury or breast removal.
What Is Breast Enhancement?
Breast enhancement involves surgical procedures such as breast augmentation, breast lifts, reconstruction, and reduction to change or enhance the physical appearance of women. Additionally, men with a larger chest benefit from male breast reduction to create a more masculine chest.

- Reshapes breasts
- Balances uneven breasts
- Lifts breasts
- Reduces larger breasts

- Creates a more masculine chest in men
How Is Breast Enhancement Performed?
Breast enhancement procedures vary depending on what you want to achieve from one of the following procedures:
- Breast Augmentation
- Breast Lift
- Breast Reconstruction
- Breast Reduction
- Gynecomastia (Male Breast Reduction)
Preparing for Breast Enhancement
Depending on the procedure chosen by you and Dr. Taylor, preparing for breast enhancement typically involves following guidelines regarding eating, drinking and taking medications and vitamins. Additionally, you may be required to have some blood work done as well as a mammogram. One of the most important parts of preparation is making arrangements for someone to accompany you to your surgery so they can drive you home.
Recovery from Breast Enhancement
For most breast enhancement procedures, results are immediately noticeable and become more prevalent as swelling subsides. In the days and weeks following breast enhancement, it is necessary for you to wear a support bra to keep your breasts in place. Dr. Taylor may provide oral pain medication and antibiotics to prevent infection. Most patients return to work within a few days of surgery but must be careful not to lift anything or participate in strenuous activities such as exercise for several weeks.
How Much Does Breast Enhancement Cost?
The cost of breast enhancement varies with each patient and the elected procedure. We recommend you have a consultation with Dr. Taylor to evaluate and discuss your options for breast enhancement and the cost involved in each option. For cosmetic procedures that are not medically necessary, we ask that the full payment be made at least two weeks prior to the procedure. If you have insurance, we are more than happy to determine if any of the cost is covered by your insurance plan as medically necessary procedures are covered. We accept most major credit cards, as well as cash and checks, and offer financing through CareCredit®.
Is Breast Enhancement Right for Me?
Breast enhancement is right for you if you are self-conscious about the shape, size, or position of your breasts. If you have experienced a significant weight loss, have completed nursing babies following pregnancies, or are at an age where your breasts have begun to sag, breast enhancement is an option to correct these issues. For men, breast enhancement may be an option if you would like to have a more masculine chest or are thinking about sex reassignment. Please note that it is important that you be in good health and have a full understanding of what is involved in breast enhancement.
