Breast augmentation is typically performed to enlarge small, underdeveloped breasts or breasts that have decreased in size following pregnancy. Breast enhancement using breast implants can give a woman more proportional shape and may improve self-esteem. Breast augmentation is accomplished by surgically inserting an implant behind each breast. The types of breast implants available include silicone implants and saline implants.

Breast Lift (Mastopexy)
Also known as mastopexy, a breast lift raises and firms the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape and support the new breast contour. Loss of skin elasticity, gravity and other factors such as weight loss, pregnancy and breast-feeding ultimately affect breast shape and firmness. Patients who are generally satisfied with the size of their breasts can have a breast lift to raise and firm them, resulting in a more youthful breast contour. Mastopexy is frequently combined with breast implants to restore a more youthful breast shape and volume.

Patients who undergo breast reduction surgery are seeking relief from physical symptoms caused by the excessive weight of large breasts. Breast reduction usually can solve these problems as well as improve the size and shape of the breasts. Individual factors and personal preferences will determine the specific technique selected to reduce the size of your breasts. Most methods involve the removal of breast tissue, fat and skin, and will significantly lift the breast as well as reduce breast size. Breast reductions are covered by most insurance plans. However, some insurance plans require prior medical criteria be met before approving this procedure.
