Breast augmentation, or breast implant surgery, is a surgical procedure designed to enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breasts, usually by using implants, but also your own fatty tissue. Breast augmentation surgery is among the most commonly performed cosmetic surgeries in the world, and one of our most popular services. Breast augmentation surgery can give women with small or unevenly sized breasts a fuller, firmer, better-proportioned bust line appearance. Patients elect to undergo breast augmentation for many different medical and aesthetic reasons including balancing size, compensating for volume lost after pregnancy and nursing, and correcting congenital defects. The procedure can be combined with breast lift to maximize cosmetic results.
Various natural factors such as aging, pregnancy, nursing, weight gain or loss, gravity, and, of course, our own genetic makeup, produce changes in the appearance of a woman’s breasts. Breast lift surgery, or mastopexy, is done to raise and reshape sagging breast and nipples, restoring their youthful shape and appearance. Breast lift surgery does not usually reduce the size of the breast, but breast tissue can be removed when performing mastopexy. Breast lift surgery can also be combined with breast augmentation with implants or with your own fat as well. There are several different techniques in performing breast lift surgery to specifically optimize your results and give your bust the most natural, elegant, and youthful look.
Breast hyperplasia, or excessively large breasts, can cause back, shoulder, and breast pain, improper posture, rashes, skeletal deformities, and low self-esteem. Additionally, large breasts can prevent women from performing self-examination as part of the recommended breast cancer screening program. Breast reduction surgery, or reduction mammoplasty, is a procedure done to provide relief from back, shoulder, and breast pain, but can also substantially enhance the shape and appearance of the breasts. Although there are several different surgical techniques to reduce large breasts, all procedures will remove fat and glandular tissue and tighten the skin to produce lighter, perkier breasts that are in better proportion to the rest of your body, giving your bust line a younger, fitter, and rejuvenated look.
Breasts are an important symbol of femininity that helps many women define their body image and self-confidence. The emotional effects of an altered appearance of the breasts can be psychologically devastating. Breast abnormalities can be caused by congenital defects, developmental conditions, or cancer. With today’s surgical advances, women who lose one or both breast due to cancer or other diseases, have more reconstructive options than ever. Whether using implant-based reconstruction or your body’s own tissues, breast reconstruction is a complicated set of surgical procedures involving several operations to recreate the breast and mimic the form and appearance of a natural breast, thereby restoring your self-confidence and sense of wholeness.
