The breasts are important to many women. They are a symbol of femininity and help make a woman who she is: a woman! Having proportionate and youthful breasts is crucial to helping women feel and look attractive. If you find yourself examining your breasts and are unhappy with how they look, you may be thinking about breast surgery. First, you may ask yourself, “Which breast surgery is right for me?”

There are plenty of reasons women opt for breast surgery. Every woman has her unique anatomy and personal preferences. Different breast enhancement techniques and procedures are performed to offer each woman an individualized surgery plan to meet her needs.

Increase Breast Size and Improve Breast Shape

Before and After Breast AugmentationWomen who have breasts that are small or lack shape or symmetry may be good candidates for breast augmentation. Saline or silicone breast implants are placed through an incision either within the breast crease, through the armpits, or around the areola to change size and shape. Implants come in different textures and profiles to match the aesthetic needs of each patient. Breast augmentation can help a person achieve fuller, more symmetrical breasts.

Lift Sagging Breasts and Correct Volume Loss

Before and After Breast Lift SurgeryDue to gravity, pregnancy, and aging, many women begin to lose breast volume, and the skin elasticity starts to weaken. As a result,
they are left with sagging, deflated breasts. Patients can undergo 
breast lift surgery to address sagging breast tissue, lift the breasts, and restore volume. Typically, an incision is made around the nipple-areolar complex and extends straight down to the inframammary fold. Excess skin is removed, glandular tissue is redistributed, and the breasts are reshaped. They may or may not require breast implants to re-establish lost volume. After breast lift surgery, women notice their breasts are perkier and upright in a more youthful position.

Reduce Pendulous Breasts and Alleviate Back Pain

Before and After Breast Reduction SurgeryAlthough most women want full, round breasts, others are suffering from breasts that are too large and pendulous. Enlarged breasts can be uncomfortable to fit into clothing correctly and can cause back, neck, and head pain. Breast reduction surgery is performed to decrease breast size and improve breast shape. An incision is made around the nipple that extends straight down to the breast fold. Excess glandular tissue and fat are removed, and the breasts are shaped into a more flattering size and position. Patients will achieve breasts that are smaller, lifted, and complementary to the rest of their body.
