Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation mammoplasty is a surgical procedure that’s performed in order to enhance the breast contour. The surgery is done for a number of reasons that can include to enhance the self-esteem of someone who personally feels their breast size is inadequate, to correct volume loss in breasts that results from pregnancy or the loss of weight, and balancing the breast size when there is a noticeable size difference between them.

Breast Lift

Breast lift, also known as mastopexy, is a surgical procedure that raises and reshapes sagging breasts. For a variety of reasons, over time, breasts can lose their useful shape and fullness. This is typically a result of nursing, weight change, age, and gravity. Even some young women may have loose, sagging breast tissue, as well. The creation of firm, uplifted contours of the breast can help improve self-image and confidence. Some may choose to have a breast augmentation with their breast lift.

Breast Reconstruction

For those who have experienced breast loss due to congenital deformity, cancer, and other disease, breast reconstruction can be an incredibly rewarding procedure both mentally and physically. The goal of reconstruction is to replace the breast or correct deformity. Reconstruction of a breast that has been completely or partially removed not only creates a new breast contour, but can also greatly improve one’s self-image, confidence, and overall quality of life.

Breast Reduction

Breast reduction, or reduction mammoplasty, may be desired by adults or teens whose breasts cause them physical or emotional pain and discomfort. Breast reduction involves surgically removing excess breast fat, glandular tissue, and skin to achieve a desired breast size.
