Which Breast Procedure is Right for Me?

Breast procedures are among the most popular cosmetic procedures, with some of the highest satisfaction rates! There are several different procedures available to enhance the size, shape, and position of your breasts. The procedure that’s right for you will depend on your unique concerns and goals as well as your surgeon’s expert opinion.

Breast Lift

After pregnancy, weight loss, or with the natural aging process, your breasts will go through changes. These changes can result in sagging breasts and nipples that face downward. A breast lift can restore the breasts to a higher position on the chest for a youthful, perky appearance. The breast lift can shift some volume to the top of the breast, but will not significantly change the size of the breasts. If you’re happy with your breast size while wearing a bra, the breast lift alone could benefit you. However, if you want larger or smaller breasts, you might consider adding an augmentation or reduction.

Breast Augmentation

The breast augmentation is the more popular cosmetic procedure in the United States. The procedure involves the use of implants to increase the size of the breasts while improving symmetry. If you experience significant volume loss with age, after pregnancy, or a dramatic weight loss, or want to enhance naturally small breasts, this might be the procedure for you! The breast augmentation is highly customizable, so you can choose the implant size, shape, material, and placement you need to achieve the look you want. While the breast augmentation can fill out the breasts to improve sagging, more severe sagging may be addressed with a breast lift. The two procedures can also be combined for optimal improvements.

Breast Reduction

Overly large breasts can cause a lot of physical discomforts like neck, shoulder, and back pain. They can also make it difficult to find clothes that fit and can cause feelings of self-consciousness. Whether you have naturally large breasts or experience enlarged breasts after pregnancy, the breast reduction can help you achieve a more comfortable size! A breast lift will likely be performed at the same time as your reduction to remove excess skin and reposition the breast and nipple.
