Breast Augmentation is a surgical procedure used to increase the size and/or alter the shape of a woman’s breasts through the use of an artificial implant. Women may choose to have this operation either as a reconstructive technique following breast surgery, to balance different sized breasts, or to enhance the contours of the body. Whatever the specific purpose, women who undergo breast augmentation can expect larger, firmer, and more visually satisfying breasts.
Breast reduction, or reduction mammoplasty, is designed for women who experience medical problems due to uncomfortable breasts. Problems may include back and neck pain, skin irritation, skeletal deformities, and breathing problems. Although the procedure is typically used to alleviate medical problems, it can also help women who feel self-conscious about the size of their breasts.
For many women diagnosed with breast cancer, mastectomy, or breast removal, is an unfortunate and inescapable option. Women who have undergone this surgery can choose to have breast reconstruction. This procedure recreates the size and shape of the patient’s natural breast and can renew a woman’s sense of beauty and femininity.
Over time, the natural aging process can cause a woman’s breasts to sag and lose their shape. A breast lift, or mastoplexy, is a surgical procedure that reshapes and cosmetically alters a woman’s breasts. After the procedure, women can expect firmer, more shapely and youthful looking breasts.
