Breast Augmentation  |  Breast Lift  |  Breast Reduction

The size and shape of a woman’s breasts can often play a critical role in a woman’s self image.  Women who are discontent with their breast size can often feel self-conscious or even embarrassed about their appearance.  We offer a variety of breast enhancement procedures that will give the breasts a more balanced, symmetrical look while still appearing natural and beautiful.  Talk to the doctor during your initial consultation about the available breast enhancement procedures.

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical enhancement procedure to accentuate the size and shape of a woman's breasts. While breast augmentation will make the breasts larger, the surgery will not move the breasts closer together or lift sagging breasts.  Breast augmentation is tremendous help to patients who desire a fuller profile, who have lost breast volume due to pregnancy or nursing, or who have undergone breast reconstruction and want to gain a more natural look again.

Reasons for Considering Breast Augmentation:

  • Enhance body shape if breasts are too small.

  • Increase breast volume after pregnancy and nursing.

  • Equalize a difference in breast size (cup size) to gain breast symmetry.

  • Reconstruct breasts following a mastectomy or injury.

Breast augmentation is one of the most common cosmetic operations done in the United States. In assembling this information sheet, we have tried to answer many of the common questions patients ask us during consultation. At Aesthetic Surgery Associates, our emphasis is on educating patients so that they can make the best possible decision for their care. 

 

                                                                    

 

Breast Lift

A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, is a procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts.  As a woman ages, skin loses some elasticity which can cause the breasts to lose their natural shape and firmness.  This procedure is designed to elevate the breasts and give them a more youthful appearance.  A breast lift may also be completed in conjunction with breast enlargement surgery (augmentation).

Reasons for Considering a Breast Lift:

  • Elevate the breasts due to sagging caused by the effects of aging and gravity.

  • Firm the breasts if they have lost substance due to pregnancy and subsequent breast-feeding.

  • Re-align your nipples/areolas if they point down or to the side.

  • Bring back natural suppleness after weight loss.

 

Breast lifts are frequently requested operations that have many features in common with Breast Reduction Surgery. The principle difference between the procedures is that breast reduction is designed to remove volume from the breast, while Mastopexy is designed to redistribute or add to existing volume, tighten the skin envelope of the breast, and change the position of the nipple. 


 

Breast Reduction

Breast reduction (or reduction mammaplasty) is an enhancement procedure that reshapes the breasts in order to make them smaller, lighter, and firmer.  Reduction is accomplished by removing excess fat, glandular tissue, and skin.  Large breasts can cause physical pain as well as emotional and social anxiety.  Women who take advantage of the breast reduction procedure find that they are able to lead a healthier, more comfortable life, in addition to enjoying a beautiful, more proportionate appearance.

Reasons for Considering a Breast Reduction:

  • Back, neck or shoulder pain caused by heavy breasts.

  • Sagging breasts produced by their large size.

  • Disproportionate body frame attributed to oversized breasts.

  • Restriction of physical activity due to the size and weight of the breasts.

  • Painful bra strap marks and/or rashes as a result of large breasts.
