- Can give women with small or unevenly-sized breasts a fuller, firmer and better-proportioned look through the placement of implants in the breast. Breast augmentation surgery can also help to bring balance to the patient’s figure by adding larger contours to the upper body that are complemented by the contours of the buttocks and thighs. Implants are silicone shells filled with either saline (salt water) or silicone gel. The type of implant used, the location of the incision, the implant size, the implant texture, the implant shape, and the placement of the implant can all be adjusted to better suit the unique needs of each patient.
- This 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). The breast lift procedure can also be performed on women who lack fullness at the top of the breasts due to breast sagging. The breast lift is often the ideal choice for women who have recently had a child and have developed noticeable breast sagging due to the effects of pregnancy and breastfeeding. Breast implants inserted in conjunction with a mastopexy procedure can increase both firmness and size and is often the better choice for women seeking more comprehensive breast enhancement.
- The removal of fat, glandular tissue and excessive skin, resulting in smaller, lighter and firmer breasts that are better-shaped in proportion to the rest of the body. This can be performed to address the numerous physical issues associated with overly large breasts, such as posture problems, rashes under the breasts, and neck, back, and shoulder pain. Breast reduction surgery can also be performed to correct breast asymmetry in women who prefer a smaller and more refined breast size and shape.
- The removal and replacement of breast implants to change the size, change the type of implant, or replace damaged implants. This procedure is commonly performed in women who experience capsular contracture or rippling in the breast skin after breast augmentation surgery. It is also frequently performed on women who are no longer satisfied with their current implant size.
