A Closer Look At Breast Procedures
- Posted on: Feb 13 2015
Breast procedures are among the most common plastic surgeries performed. Women choose to undergo breast surgery for a number of reasons, whether to increase the size of their breasts, reduce breasts that are overly large or cause discomfort and lift breasts that have lost volume. New techniques, methods and advanced technology ensure that breast procedures are safer and more comfortable than ever before.
- Breast augmentation: Breast augmentation is the most popular breast procedure, and one of the most widely performed cosmetic surgery procedures in the world. Patients have a number of options to choose from to customize their breast augmentation, such as the size and shape of the implant, the placement of the implant above or under the muscle, and the type of incision used for the procedure. Under the guidance of an experienced plastic surgeon, patients will be able to enjoy fuller, natural-looking breasts.
- Breast reduction: For women who have oversized breasts, they can be a constant source of physical and emotional discomfort. Breast reduction offers a safe, effective method for reducing the size of large breasts and creating a more proportionate profile. Modern innovative techniques, such as the vertical reduction method, significantly reduces the amount of scarring associated with the procedure. Breast reduction removes breast tissue as well as excess skin to create smaller, lighter and firmer breasts.
- Breast lift: A breast lift rejuvenates breasts that have become droopy or saggy due to aging, weight loss or nursing. This procedure tightens the supporting tissues of the breast, creating a more youthful shape. Breasts sit higher up on the chest, and firmness is restored. A breast lift does not change the size of the breast, nor will it create fuller or rounder breasts. In many cases when an augmentation is desired, a breast lift will be combined with either breast augmentation or reduction to create the desired result.
