Breast Augmentation Surgery
Cosmetic breast augmentation refers to techniques to enhance your breasts. This is usually accomplished by placing breast implants (FDA-approved saline or silicone implants) underneath the chest muscle (pectoralis major). The implants are carefully chosen based on your anatomy and your needs and desires. Implants can be placed without leaving visible scars on your breast.
Breast augmentation can also be performed with fat cells harvested (fat transfer) from your abdomen or thighs. Contouring of troublesome armpit (anterior axillary) fat pads can be performed simultaneously using liposuction.
Breast Lift Surgery
Pregnancy, obesity and significant weight loss can compromise the natural elasticity of the breast skin envelope, resulting in sagging breasts. Breast lift surgery, also called mastopexy, refers to techniques used to remove the excess sagging skin and move up the breast mound on the chest wall, giving your breasts a more youthful look. A breast lift is often combined with breast augmentation.
Breast Reduction Surgery
Large, heavy breasts can cause strain on your upper body muscles, neck and shoulders. A breast reduction and lift involves the resection of excessive tissue to help relieve these symptoms while leaving you with smaller, more youthful breasts.
