The ideal bust is different for every woman. While some want a full, voluptuous silhouette, others may prefer more of an athletic look. Still, others may like to be somewhere in the middle. If you aren’t happy with your breasts and feel that it may be time to consider breast surgery, our team at Northstate Plastic Surgery can help you achieve your ideal bust. Understanding the options available to you is an important step before consenting to surgery, as this will help you get the results you want.
A breast lift is a breast augmentation procedure designed to lift the breasts higher on the chest wall. Breast tissue can sag with weight loss, pregnancy or simple aging. Not only can this be aesthetically displeasing, but it can also lead to practical problems like back and shoulder pain. Some women also have naturally low breasts and experience the same issues. A breast lift can be paired with other breast surgery procedures, or it can be done alone if you are already happy with your size.
A breast reduction is precisely what it sounds like: a procedure designed to make the breasts smaller and reduce their size. This procedure is especially popular with athletic women who feel their breasts are uncomfortable and get in the way of their active lifestyles. Sports that require percussive movement, such as running, can be difficult with large breasts. A reduction can give a woman more freedom of movement and can also assist with pain in the back and shoulders.
This form of breast surgery increases the size of a woman’s breasts. This may be accomplished via fat transfer or implants, depending on the situation. It is a great option for women who are dealing with breast asymmetry. It is not at all strange or uncommon for one of your breasts to be larger than the other. If there is a visible, marked difference, however, you may wish to pursue breast augmentation.
