Women’s breasts may change over time from multiple factors, causing them to lose their shape and firmness. These changes can be accelerated following childbirth and weight fluctuations. Breast lift surgery, or mastopexy, is a procedure that is performed to restore a more youthful shape and position of your breasts. A mastopexy does not increase the volume of your breasts, but can be combined with an augmentation to improve the shape, position, projection, volume and firmness of your breasts.
Breast augmentation is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures performed today. Many women choose to have their breasts enlarged in order to satisfy their own desire for a fuller bust line. Breast enlargement, or augmentation, is a surgical procedure to enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breasts to complement her natural body proportions. Women can choose between saline or silicone gel filled implants. The size, type of implants and incision location are tailored to each patient’s body habitus and desired outcome.
Breast revision surgery is often necessary for multiple reasons:
- Over time, implants may shift position and require repositioning.
- Scar tissue may contract (capsular contracture) around an implant creating a firm, immobile implant.
- Replacement of deflated or outdated implants with shapely, more natural-feeling implants.
- Enhance the results of a previous breast enhancement procedure.
