Many women consider undergoing breast implant surgery to enhance the size and shape of the natural bustline. A feminine body image is important and that includes the appearance of the breasts. In fact, breast implants come in a variety of sizes, shapes and profiles to achieve a natural-looking physique. The personal reasons of augmentation may center around breasts that are perceived to be under developed or because of differences in the sizes of the breasts or from changes after pregnancy or breast feeding. Often after weight loss, aging or childbirth a woman’s breast volume and shape may change. This too can lead to a woman to seek a breast augmentation or reduction.
Breast Lift / Reduction
Loss of skin elasticity, gravity and other factors such as weight loss, pregnancy and breast-feeding ultimately affect the shape and firmness of your breasts. Patients who are generally satisfied with the size of their breasts can have a breast lift to raise and firm them, resulting in a more youthful breast contour. Some patients may be unhappy that they have lost a significant amount of breast volume over time. In such cases, implants inserted in conjunction with a breast lift can increase breast size at the same time as the shape and position of the breasts are enhanced.Women with very heavy breasts can have shoulder & back pain, skin infection & even difficulty in walking. These can also be the indications for breast reduction.
Male Breast Reduction
Enlarged male breasts can be reduced by liposuction and/or by removing excess glandular tissue. The procedure for male breast reduction takes an average of two hours, usually on an outpatient basis, using general or local anesthesia.
