Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation, technically known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure to enhance the size and shape of a woman's breasts.  By inserting an implant behind each breast, surgeons are able to increase a woman's bust line by one or more bra cup sizes.

 

Breast Lift

Breastlift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts.  Mastopexy can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple. If your breasts are small or have lost volume--for example, after pregnancy--breast implants inserted in conjunction with mastopexy can increase both their firmness and their size.

 

Breast Reduction

Breast reduction, technically known as reduction mammaplasty, is designed for women with large breasts that cause discomfort. The procedure removes fat, glandular tissue, and skin from the breasts, making them smaller, lighter, and firmer. It can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple. The goal is to give the woman smaller, better-shaped breasts in proportion with the rest of her body.

 

Breast Reconstruction

Breast reconstruction recreates the breast after mastectomy.  New medical techniques and devices have made it possible for surgeons to create a breast that can come close in form and appearance to matching a natural breast. Frequently, reconstruction is possible immediately following breast removal (mastectomy), so the patient wakes up with a breast mound already in place, having been spared the experience of seeing herself with no breast at all.
