Breast augmentation is a very common surgery which involves the surgical placement of implants to provide a natural enhancement to a woman’s breasts. Implants can increase size, shape, and symmetry of the breasts.The surgery is relatively short and is performed on an outpatient basis.
A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a frequently performed procedure which lifts the breasts back to a more youthful position. Breast sagging may be caused from aging, pregnancy, recent weight loss, breast feeding, gravity, or heredity.
Women who have overly large breasts may suffer from unrelieved back or neck pain, painful grooving from bra straps, a loss of self-confidence, and the inability to exercise, among other health problems. A mammoplasty, or breast reduction, can help alleviate these symptoms and give you a breast size more proportionate to your body.
