Implants improve the size and appearance of the breasts. They can be either saline or silicone, round or tear-drop shaped, and placed under or over the chest muscle.
Hence, not all breast augmentations are the same and a full consultation is needed with the surgeon who will undertake the procedure. The reasons for breast enlargement vary but are commonly to enlarge the overall size of the bust, to match up differently sized breasts or to normalise the breast shape and volume consequences of weight loss, ageing and pregnancy.
Breast Uplift (Mastopexy)
This operation reshapes the breast and removes excess skin that has been stretched from ageing, during pregnancy or weight fluctuations. Various different types of incision can be used involving shorter scar techniques compared to breast reduction operations. Breast implants may also be used in conjunction with this procedure to achieve the desired result.
A breast reduction, also referred to as a reduction mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure to reduce the size and improve the shape of the breasts. Typically, women who are candidates for this procedure have physical symptoms related to the weight or shape of their breasts.
Male Breast Reduction (Gynaecomastia)
Reduces enlarged, female-like breasts in men using liposuction and/or surgically removing excess glandular tissue.
