Life can take a toll on the appearance of your breasts. Gravity can pull at tissues, causing them to sag. Hormone changes during pregnancy and menopause can change your breast shape and size. Even sun damage can make your breasts less elastic, allowing them to droop.
If you are unhappy with the appearance of your breasts, you can improve how they look with breast augmentation surgery. Breast augmentation is not just about getting large breasts; it’s about creating breasts with the volume, shape and position you desire.
Your plastic surgeon can use different techniques to improve the look of your breasts, including:
Modern breast implants come in different materials, shapes and sizes so you can choose the implant that is right for you. Implants may be round or teardrop-shaped, silicone or saline, and in every cup size. Your plastic surgeon can help you choose implants and carefully position them to create cleavage or create the appearance of higher breasts.
Mastopexy (Breast Lift)
In addition to breast augmentation, you may benefit from a breast lift. During a breast lift, your plastic surgeon can lift breast tissue and skin, reattaching it to higher up on your chest wall. This procedure can correct the appearance of sagging or deflated breasts. You can keep all your own tissue or choose to add an implant, depending on the appearance you desire.
Fat grafting uses fat from other areas of your body, such as your thighs or abdomen, that is added to your breast. It can be used alone or in combination with the two procedures above. Fat grafting alone can only add a little volume to your breasts. If you want to go up more than one cup size, you may need an implant, too.
