Improve breast shape and volume with body plastic | aesthetic surgery. Augmentation of the breast can be performed a variety of ways; implant based, fat transfer based, flap based etc. Depending on your expectations breast shape can be changed with augmenting techniques (augmentation mammaplasty), reduction techniques (reduction mammoplasty), lifting techniques (mastopexy) or combination of an implant with breast lift (augmentation mastopexy)
Do I need a breast lift or just implants? If you have sagging (ptosis) of the breasts you may need a breast lift, however this is dependent on multiple factors such as; how low is your nipple on the breast, how much breast tissue is below the nipple? etc. Dr. Parikh will discuss these breast changes with you in detail during your consultation. Childbirth, breast feeding, or weight loss can result in significant sagging of the breast even in a young female with smaller cup size. Implants alone can elevate the breast and nipple if the sagging is mild to moderate and if the appropriate size of implant is chosen. If you want to be significantly larger a bigger breast implant may be able to augment your breast out of ptosis or sagging without a lift. However, bigger implants are heavier and produce more stretch on the breast tissue which can affect you over time. It is important for your surgeon to recognize whether a breast lift is needed to achieve the optimal cosmetic result. Please click the link for further details on breast implants and breast lift.
I already have implants and want to switch them for a bigger size or switch to silicone implants. This is a common scenario. Most women change implants and undergo another procedure due to size change. Other reasons can be related to complications with previous breast augmentation surgery. Previous breast implants may have changed your normal breast tissue. There may be thinning, rippling, hardening or sagging (ptosis) that may not have been apparent initially or may have developed over time. Surgical techniques that may use mesh products (ADM's), or fat grafting techniques may be required to correct some of these issues. Dr. Parikh can discuss these techniques with you in detail during your consultation. Breast Procedures:
