Get The Figure That You've Always Wanted With Breast Augmentation!
Over time, factors such as age, genetics, pregnancy, weight changes, sun exposure, and gravity can cause the size and shape of breasts to change. Breast augmentation, or augmentation mammoplasty, enhances the size and shape of a woman’s breasts, and is one of the most common plastic surgery procedures performed today. The procedure can help to increase or balance the size of the breasts, restore breast volume, or restore the shape of the breasts after partial or total loss.
Dr. Edward J. Love M.D. on Breast Augmentation
Dr. Love visits with a patient and answers common questions related to breast augmentation procedures.
Women choose breast augmentation for many different reasons, including making the body more proportional, reshaping and/or enlarging breasts, balancing breasts that differ in size or shape, or restoring their figure after surgery.
During breast augmentation surgery, an implant is placed inside a pocket formed in the breast tissue, resulting in a fuller and shapelier bust line. The implant size is determined by the desired increase in cup size, the natural breast size and shape, the skin elasticity, and the body type.
It is important to realize that breast augmentation cannot correct significantly sagging or drooping breasts. In those instances, a breast lift is often necessary, and may be performed in conjunction with this procedure.
