Breast Augmentation

If you are dissatisfied with your breast size, breast augmentation surgery (either breast enhancement or breast enlargement) is a choice to consider.  Breast augmentation can:

  • increase fullness and projection of your breasts
  • improve the balance of your figure
  • enhance your self-image and self-confidence

Also known as augmentation mammaplasty, the procedure involves using implants to fulfill your desire for fuller breasts or to restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy.  Implants also may be used to reconstruct a breast after mastectomy or injury.

Is Breast Augmentation Right for Me?

Breast augmentation is a highly individualized procedure and you should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else’s desires or to try and fit any sort of ideal image.  Breast augmentation may be a good option for you if:

  • you are physically healthy
  • you have realistic expectations
  • your breasts are fully developed
  • you are bothered by the feeling that your breasts are too small
  • you are dissatisfied with you breasts losing shape and volume after pregnancy, weight loss, or with aging
  • your breasts vary in size or shape
  • one or both breasts failed to develop normally

Enhancing your appearance with Breast Reduction

Breast Reconstruction is a physically and emotionally rewarding procedure for a woman who has lost a breast due to cancer or other condition.  The creation of a new breast can dramatically improve your self-image, self-confidence and quality of life.  Although surgery can give you a relatively natural-looking breast, a reconstructed breast will never look or feel exactly the same as the breast that was removed.

Is Breast Reduction Right for Me?

Breast Reconstruction is a highly individualized procedure.  You should do it for yourself, not to fulfill someone else’s desires or to try to fit any sort of ideal image.  Breast reconstruction is a good option for you if:

  • you are able to cope well with your diagnosis and treatment
  • you do not have additional medical conditions or other illnesses that may impair healing
  • you have a positive outlook and realistic goals for restoring your breast and body image

Breast Reconstruction typically involves several procedures performed in multiple stages.

It Can:

  • begin at the same time as mastectomy, or
  • be delayed until you heal from mastectomy and recover from additional cancer treatments

It’s important that you feel ready for the emotional adjustment involved in breast reconstruction.  It may take some time to accept the results of breast reduction.

Enhancing Your Appearance with Breast Reduction Surgery

Overly large breasts can cause some women to have both health and emotional problems.  In addition to self-image issues, you may also experience physical pain and discomfort.  The weight of excess breast tissue can impair your ability to lead an active life.  The emotional discomfort and self-consciousness often associated with having large pendulous breasts is as important an issue to many women as the physical discomfort and pain.

Also known as reduction mammaplasty, breast reduction surgery removes excess breast fat, glandular tissue and skin to achieve a breast size in proportion with your body and to alleviate the discomfort associated with overly large breasts.
