As a woman, there is nothing more frustrating than not being able to find clothing to fit perfectly. Some clothing styles may fit fine on one woman but fit awkwardly on another. Cleavage baring tops may be a good choice for a woman with perky, round breasts; however, this is a big No-No for a woman with breasts that are too large, sagging, or too small, which often makes it hard to wear certain styles of t-shirts, bathing suit tops, and intimate apparel. Many women choose to undergo breast enhancement surgery to achieve breasts that work better with their wardrobe. Women will feel more confident and be able to wear clothes they used to steer away from wearing.

Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation Before and After PhotosWomen who have small breasts find they may lack the shape and volume to fill in dresses, tank tops, or swimsuits properly. The breasts are a symbol of femininity. When a woman lacks breast volume and shape, it can make her feel less like a woman. Breast augmentation surgery can increase the size and improve the shape of the breasts, and it can also improve cleavage by adding more fullness to the breasts. With over 300,000 breast augmentation procedures performed in 2015, this procedure has continued to maintain its popularity due to women wanting to improve their feminine curves, especially the breasts. It is safe and effective for creating breast contours that are beautifully shaped to rest of the body.

Breast augmentation involves inserting saline or silicone breast implants through an incision under the breast or around the nipple. The implants will be placed either underneath the glandular tissue or the pectoral muscle. To create a personalized breast augmentation, different shapes and textures of breast implants can be used.

Breast Augmentation Benefits:

  • Adds volume to the breasts
  • Improves the shape of the breasts
  • Enhances a woman’s self-image

Breast Lift

Breast Lift Before and After PhotosThe breasts “fall” downward or becomes ptotic (pronounced “totic”) as a result of gravity, aging tissues that lend decreasing support to the breast gland, and following pregnancy and breastfeeding. The degree to which the breast falls will be unique to each patient. Breast lift surgery, commonly referred to as a  mastopexy, serves the purpose of “lifting” the entire breast tissue along with the nipple/areola and tightening the breast. It can reshape sagging breasts and reduce the size of the areolas if they are too large.

Breast Lift Benefits:

  • Reshapes sagging breasts to a more rounded shape
  • Repositions the breasts and nipples to a more youthful position and projection
  • Reduces the size of the areolas if too large
  • May be combined with a breast augmentation to enhance the size and firmness of the breasts with the insertion of implants

Breast Reduction

Breast Reduction Before and After PhotosAlthough a praiseworthy body feature, large breasts can be too pendulous for a woman’s body. Breast reduction surgery can reduce the breast size by removing excess tissue and fat, repositioning the nipples, and reshaping the entire breast. Many women undergo a breast reduction to alleviate the emotional anxiety of having large breasts and the physical pain due to heavy breasts. Breast reduction surgery can help a woman to achieve breasts that are smaller, yet more complementary to her entire physique.

Breast reduction surgery is performed as an outpatient procedure under general anesthesia. An incision is made around the areola area in an “anchor” or “inverted-T” shape. Through the incisions, the surgeon removes any unnecessary breast tissue and uses the remaining breast tissue and glandular mass to reshape the breasts.

Breast Reduction Benefits:

  • Enhances the appearance of the breasts
  • Reduces tension in the upper back
  • Improves a patient’s self-confidence
