Small beasts or breast that are uneven can be relatively easily transformed at the hands of a skilled plastic surgeon. Techniques have greatly evolved and breast enhancement surgery is today one of the most common plastic surgery procedures performed.
There are a variety of options available to enhance the appearance and symmetry of the natural breasts. Choosing the procedure that will achieve the desired results is important.

Take a few moments to review various breast procedures available for a better understanding of each…
Breast Augmentation – Breast augmentation (augmentation mammoplasty) is a procedure to enhance the overall shape and size of the breasts. Many women who have had a child or lost weight find that their breasts have decreased in size over time and they choose breast augmentation surgery to restore a more natural, fuller appearance.
Breast Lift – Breast lift surgery (mastopexy) is a surgical procedure with the specific goal of raising and reshaping sagging breasts. Quite often, mastopexy is performed to reduce the size of the areola – the darker skin around the nipple. Breast lift surgery may also be combined with breast augmentation to restore fullness and size of breasts that have lost volume due to pregnancy or weight loss.
Breast Reduction – Breast reduction (mammaplasty) is a surgical procedure that removes breast tissue, fat and skin with the goal of achieving better overall body proportions. Many women suffer from neck and back pain, skin irritation and difficulty breathing due to overly large breasts.
Breast Reconstruction – In instances in which surgery is necessary to remove part or all of the breast (mastectomy), breast reconstruction surgery – often immediately following the breast removal surgery – is an option to re-create the shape and appearance of a natural breast.
