Breast reshaping surgery is becoming one of the most popular procedures today. Many women choose to have a breast reshaping done to increase breast size or reduce saggy breasts and create a lovely, full shape. It is usually considered by women who have always wanted a bigger cup size, or after pregnancy, breast-feeding or even weight loss.
Breast enhancement surgery is generally done to increase self-esteem and self-confidence, improve shape and size to achieve symmetrical breasts and to make them more into proportion with the body.
Breast reshaping basically involves the following procedures:
• Breast Augmentation: It involves insertion of breast implants to make the breast look perky and full looking. Breast implant surgery has been proven a safe procedure and does not affect functions of the breast. Also they do not cause or increase the chance of tumors or breast cancer. Even breast feeding can be done normally later. The procedure has US FDA approval.
• Breast reduction: It is the surgical procedure for the reduction of breast volume to achieve a smaller aesthetically shaped breast mound. Very large breasts causing shoulder pain and / or backache are a primary indication for breast reduction surgery. Severe embarrassment, physically or sexually and infections below the breast are also indications for surgery.
• Breast lift: Due to age, breasts lose their firmness and shape. Also due to weight loss and following pregnancy and breast feeding. Loss of volume along with loss of skin elasticity will cause the breasts to droop. The nipple and areola changes position and in many people looks downwards. Mastopexy / breast lift is the procedure to reshape as well as reposition the breasts in its youthful position. Implants may be required to replace the loss of volume.
