breast augmentation is a popular cosmetic procedure that allows patients to reshape their breasts and quickly achieve their aesthetic goals.
breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts. factors such as pregnancy, nursing, weight change, aging and gravity produce changes in the appearance of a woman's breasts. as the skin loses its elasticity, the breasts often lose their shape and begin to sag.
liposuction is a surgical technique to remove unwanted deposits of fat from specific areas of the body, including the face and neck, upper arms, trunk, abdomen, buttocks, hips and thighs, the knees, calves and ankles. this is not a substitute for weight reduction, but a method for removing localized deposits of fatty tissue that does not respond to diet or exercise. liposuction may be performed as a primary procedure for body contouring or combined with other surgical techniques such as facelift, abdominoplasty, or thigh lift procedures to tighten loose skin and supporting structures.
women who have large breasts may experience a variety of problems from the weight and size of their breasts, such as back, neck, and shoulder pain, and skin irritation. breast reduction is usually performed for relief of these symptoms rather than to enhance the appearance of the breasts.
