Both in the past and present, the breast has been one of the key attributes of female and male physical identity. The size, appearance and shape of the breast have assumed great importance to both the patient herself and her admirers.
Breast Augmentation Surgery (also known as breast enlargement) is generally performed on women with under developed breasts or on women who have experienced a decrease in breast size or shape due to pregnancy or weight loss.
Breast Reduction Surgery (Reduction Mammaplasty) is ideal for patients with excessively large breasts. The procedure allows removal of a portion of the breast gland, skin, fat and other tissues making breasts smaller, shapelier and firmer with better shaped and positioned nipples.
Many women, over the years, develop sagging and aesthetically displeasing breasts. Such factors as pregnancy, nursing, and simply aging play a part. As the skin loses its elasticity, the breasts often lose their shape and firmness and begin to sag.
