Dr. Medalie is an expert in breast augmentation and enhancement.Breast augmentation with implants is a very popular procedure for women and among the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery procedures. Either a silicone or saline-filled implant is placed under the breast tissue or beneath the chest wall muscle. After surgery, breasts will appear fuller and more shapely in contour. Incisions can be placed in the armpit, around the areola, or under the breast. Sometimes a patient's fat can be injected (autologous fat transfer) into the breast to provide smaller changes in superior or medial fullness. Dr. Medalie typically performs breast augmentation and enhancement as an outpatient procedure in Cleveland, Ohio. When you schedule a breast augmentation consultation with Dr. Medalie, he will go over the procedure in depth, show you numerous patient pictures and let you feel the different types of implants to get an idea of what is the best  fit for your body.

Over time, the effects of gravity along with the loss of the skin's natural elasticity begins to have an effect on the appearance of a woman's breasts. These factors, combined with pregnancies and nursing will often cause the breasts to lose their youthful shape and firmness. A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts. The procedure can also reduce the size of the areola (the darker skin surrounding the nipple). Breast implants inserted in conjunction with a mastopexy procedure can increase both firmness and size. Dr. Medalie typically performs breast lift as an outpatient procedure in Cleveland, Ohio.

Large, pendulous breasts may cause a woman to potentially experience various medical problems caused by the excessive weight of the breast tissue. Problems with posture, skeletal deformities, back and neck pain, skin irritations and nerve irritations of the fingers are common with this condition. Bra straps often leave indentations in the shoulder area. Many women, especially teenage girls, are very self-conscious if they have unusually large breasts. With breast reduction surgery, women of all ages are able to have breasts that are better shaped and in proportion. Breast reduction (reduction mammoplasty) removes fat, glandular tissue, and excessive skin, resulting in smaller, lighter and firmer breasts that are better-shaped in proportion to rest of the body. Dr. Medalie typically performs breast reduction as an outpatient procedure in Cleveland, Ohio.

Reconstruction of the breast after a mastectomy due to cancer or other disease is quite possible with today's surgical procedures. It is now a Federal law that after Breast Cancer surgery, all insurance companies are required to cover Breast Reconstruction as well as opposite side breast symmetry procedures. Using the newest medical techniques, a plastic surgeon is often able to create a breast that is similar in form and appearance to that of the natural breast. A consultation will provide you with information on the many available options for post-mastectomy breast reconstruction.

Dr. Medalie is a specialist in the surgical treatment of gynecomastia or male breast enlargement in Cleveland, Ohio.

Although rarely discussed, male breast enlargement is a common condition. There is no specific cause for gynecomastia, although there has been some correlation with various medical conditions or drugs (anabolic steroids, some heart medications, marijuana, etc.). Men who feel self-conscious about their appearance are helped with male breast reduction surgery. The procedure removes fat and/or glandular tissue from the breasts, and in extreme cases removes excess skin, resulting in a contoured chest that is flatter and firmer. If excess glandular tissue is the primary cause of the breast enlargement, it typically requires sharp excision. The excision may be performed alone or in conjunction with liposuction. Dr. Medalie prefers ultrasonic liposuction because it has greater efficacy in the dense fibrous tissue under the nipple. In a typical procedure, an incision is made at the skin -areola junction in the 4-8 o'clock position. Working through the incision, Dr. Medalie removes the excess glandular and fatty tissue from beneath and around the nipple. The remaining excess tissue is contoured via liposuction to blend smoothly with the rest of the chest wall. Major reductions that involve the removal of a significant amount of tissue and skin may require larger incisions that result in more conspicuous scars. When liposuction is used to remove excess fat, the cannula is usually inserted through the existing incisions or in an inconspicuous location under the arm.

Dr. Medalie typically performs male breast reduction (gynecomastia reduction) as an outpatient procedure in Cleveland, Ohio.
