Do you feel that your breasts are too large or too small or that they have begun to sag over time? If so, consider breast enhancement, which includes three of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed in the United States today.
Patients who undergo breast enhancement procedures typically do so because they feel that their breast size and shape is not proportionate to their body, and they want to improve this with the appropriate techniques.
There are many options available to you, and it’s important to come in for a consultation with one of our doctors to find out what procedure will be best for you and your goals.
Depending on what type of breast enhancement procedure is performed, patients will be left with smaller, larger, firmer, or perkier breasts. Breast augmentations, breast lifts, and breast reductions are surgical procedures used to increase or decrease the size of the breasts or revise the positioning of the breasts on the chest.
Is Breast Augmentation Right for Me?
If you are unhappy with the current size, shape, or position of your breasts, you may be a candidate for these procedures. Breast enhancement may be performed on adult women who are in good overall health. While they are popular procedures for women following pregnancy, significant weight loss, or aging, all of which can affect breast appearance, adults of any age can undergo these procedures. A breast reduction is also available for men with gynecomastia, or abnormal breast development, as well as during sex reassignment procedures. It is important to have realistic expectations about the results of breast enhancement.
Exploring Your Breast Augmentation Options
There are important differences between the various options that are available to those who are considering our breast enhancement procedures. Breast augmentation is usually best when one is looking to simply increase the size and volume of the breasts. But breast augmentation is not always the answer for women who want to improve the appearance of their breasts.
If the breasts are loose or sagging, breast augmentation will not make the breasts look better. This procedure will only make them look like larger drooping breasts. In the case where a woman wants her breasts to look perkier and not sag as much, a breast lift will most likely be the best option. And breast augmentation can be combined with a breast lift for those who want larger, perkier breasts.
Of course, maybe the problem is that your breasts are too large for your body, causing pain, discomfort, or back problems. In this scenario, breast reduction is most likely going to be the procedure for you. Removing breast tissue is done in such a way as to improve the appearance of the breasts, and this procedure can also be combined with a breast lift in order to enhance one’s bustline and figure.
There are also different types of breast implants that can be used to achieve different effects. After a discussion with the doctor to determine what kind of look you are going for, the appropriate breast implants can be selected for your breast enhancement procedure.
Breast reconstruction can be necessary where one or both of the breasts was lost due to breast cancer. This form of breast surgery can be a combination of several procedures that are designed to repair and restore the chest so that a woman regains her feminine figure.
And for men looking for a more masculine figure, male breast reduction surgery, or gynecomastia, is the answer. By removing excess tissue and sculpting the chest, male breast reduction surgery can help men regain their confidence and self esteem.
