The American Society of Plastic Surgeons states that over 286,000 breast augmentations were performed in 2014, making it the most popular plastic surgery in the nation. Breast augmentation includes a wide range of procedures, such as reductions, implants, lifts and reconstructions.
If you’re not happy with the size of your bust, breast augmentation may be able to give you the cup size you’ve always wanted. Understanding your options is often the first step in your journey.
The breast lift surgery can be done alone or it could be paired with reduction or implants., Where other procedures focus on breast size, a lift focuses on the position and location of the breasts on the chest wall.
If you feel your breasts have sagged or were low even as a teen, a lift can give you the perky bustline you want. A lift also repositions the nipples and can decrease the size of the areolas, which can help if you don’t like these aspects of your breasts right now.
This type of augmentation gives you more volume and firmness by placing implants under the natural tissue of your breasts. Made out of saline or silicone, breast implants are reversible and completely safe for nearly everyone. If you wish you had filled out a bit more, this procedure can help you get there.
While some ladies want more, some want less. If you have large breasts and would rather have a more conservative bust, reduction can make all the difference.
Not only can having a smaller chest be more comfortable for an active lifestyle, but reduction surgery can also give you relief from back and shoulder pain. If you’re tired of feeling weighed down by big breasts, a reduction may be just what you need.
If you’ve suffered an accident or lost a breast to cancer, augmentation is available to reconstruct a breast to match the remaining natural breast. If you’ve lost both, reconstruction is still an option.
Depending on your individual needs, tissue expanders, implants or even harvested fat from your own body may be used to recreate your bust line.
