Breast Reduction

Generally, we inherit our body type. Some women naturally develop large and heavy breasts that can even restrict their activity. Their weight often causes discomfort including pain in the neck, shoulders and back, as well as skin irritation on the bottom of the beasts; the shoulders can become sore from the pressure of bra straps digging into the skin.

It can be difficult to find clothing that fits well, and this can affect our self esteem.

Reduction mammaplasty can help alleviate this discomfort and create more balanced, pleasing body proportions.

Breast Lift

Whether large or small, breasts can lose their tone and sag after weight loss, pregnancy or breast feeding. This is natural and also occurs with age. Heredity plays a part as well. Known as mastopexy, the breast lift removes excess skin and tightens the surrounding tissue. However, it does not make the breasts larger. It may be performed together with breast augmentation or breast reduction for an overall pleasing shape.

Breast Implant Revision

Breast implant revision surgery is usually performed to replace existing implants with new ones. This is often done at the same time as a breast lift and can either increase or reduce the breast size while improving their shape or appearance.

It can also be requested to change the implant type, such as silicone or saline, or if leaking of implant contents is suspected, or to correct a capsular contracture, when scar tissue can tighten, or harden, and causes pain.

Breast Implant Removal

While very popular, breast implants may need to be removed. This is because they can rupture and leak, shift position, or develop hard scar tissue that can be painful. Even if you plan to keep your implants, they should be replaced every ten to fifteen years.

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is the most popular form of cosmetic surgery in the US today. Simply put, it increases the size of the breasts. It can be done in two ways — by placing fat taken from another part of the body in the breasts, or by inserting implants.

Breast augmentation, or breast mammoplasty, may be chosen by a woman with small breasts and large hips for better body symmetry.

Implants may help restore the upper body contours after a mastectomy.

Menopause can cause the breasts to lose their fullness, and breast augmentation can help recover their youthful shape.

The breasts become enlarged during pregnancy and breast feeding, then lose their fullness, and breast augmentation can also counteract this.
