Breast Procedures

Breast Augmention

A breast augmentation, sometimes called a “breast augmentation” or “boob job,” involves the use of breast implants or fat transfer to increase the size of your breasts.

Breast augmentation can also enhance natural breast size asymmetry, restore breast volume lost after weight loss or pregnancy, and achieve a more rounded breast shape.

 

 What Patients Need to Know About Breast Implant Safety

Breast augmentation is also referred to as augmentation mammoplasty. When fat from another part of the patient’s body is used to create the improved breast volume, the procedure is referred to as fat transfer breast augmentation.

 

The benefits of breast augmentation surgery

  • Enhance the fullness and projection of your breasts
  • Balance the contours of the breasts and hips
  • Build your self-esteem and self-confidence

Implants may also be used to reconstruct a breast following a mastectomy or injury.

 

The limitations of breast augmentation surgery

A breast augmentation cannot correct severely drooping breasts. For sagging breasts to look fuller and lifted, a breast lift and breast augmentation may be required.

Breast lifting can often be done at the same time as your augmentation or may require a separate operation. Your plastic surgeon will assist you in making this decision.

Breast Lift

By removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissues, a breast lift reshapes and supports the new breast contour.

According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, breast lifts have grown 70% since 2000, outpacing breast implants 2-to-1.

Breast lifts also reduce the size of the areola, which can become enlarged over time.

Your breast profile will appear more youthful and uplifted after a breast lift. Over time, women’s breasts lose their youthful shape and firmness. Skin elasticity can be affected by the following factors:

  • Pregnancy
  • Breastfeeding
  • Weight fluctuations
  • Aging
  • Gravity
  • Heredity

 

The limitations of breast lift surgery

Your breasts will not be significantly enlarged or rounded out following breast lift surgery. Consider breast lifts and breast augmentations if you want fuller breasts.

Consider combining breast lift surgery with breast reduction surgery if you want smaller breasts.
