Breast Enhancement in Birmingham, ALBreast enhancement procedures provide you with the possibility of improving what nature gave you – or didn’t give you. For breast enhancement in the Tuscaloosa area consider Menard Plastic Surgery, led by Dr. John Menard, a reputable plastic surgeon certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

What is the Goal of Breast Enhancement Procedures?

Breast surgery procedures give you several options to improve the appearance of your breasts and chest. You can choose to have your breasts lifted, reshaped, enlarged, reduced, or balanced. Breast enhancement will rejuvenate your breasts and chest, enhancing your appearance and boosting self-esteem.

How Can Breast Enhancement Improve my Figure?

Many women aren’t fully satisfied with their bustline. Some yearn for larger or firmer breasts, while others want to reduce the size of breasts that feel too cumbersome. Breast enhancement allows you to choose the size and shape of your breasts, adding volume and fullness to breasts that are underdeveloped, balancing breasts that are lopsided, and lifting breasts that are drooping or sagging. Breast enhancement procedures allow you to choose your shape and have the bustline you’ve always desired.

What Procedures Can I Choose From?

Menard Plastic Surgery proudly provides a variety of customized breast enhancement procedures to help each of our patients fulfill his or her personal aesthetic goal:

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation increases the size and volume of the breasts, and is normally achieved using saline or silicone implants that are positioned under the chest wall muscles.

Breast Reduction

Breast reduction is ideal for women whose breasts are too large, pendulous, or heavy. A breast lift is always included with a breast reduction. This procedure not only improves your overall figure by providing a more proportionate silhouette, it also improves back and shoulder pain caused by the excessive weight of large or heavy breasts.

Breast Lift

Breast lift surgery lifts drooping breasts to a higher position on the chest, positioning the nipples to point forward instead of downward and providing a perkier, more youthful appearance.

Breast Reconstruction

Breast reconstruction is performed when one or both breasts have undergone damage or trauma due to illness, injury, or surgery.


Gynecomastia may be caused by weight gain, dietary habits, genetics, medications, or fluctuations in hormone levels. Gynecomastia surgery can help reduce the appearance of breasts in men and boys.

How is Breast Enhancement Performed?

At Menard Plastic Surgery, we strive for high patient satisfaction with emphasis on a natural look, while providing personalized care throughout pre- and post-operative experiences.

Menard Plastic Surgery provides a variety of breast enhancement procedures, and we offer both silicone and saline implants for breast augmentation. Typically, we place them under the muscle through incisions under the breast or under the nipple. These procedures are performed at DCH Regional Outpatient Center. An overnight stay in the Outpatient Center is included in our pricing. As with all of our procedures, anesthesia is provided by M.D. anesthesiologists, ensuring our uncompromising commitment to safety and pain management. Our patients are usually able to return to light duty work in five to seven days.
