I see a wide variety of patients that ask for breast improvement in my practice. Most patients simply want to fill out a bra better, or have a more acceptable appearance. The best way to achieve this goal varies in different patients. Many patients can add volume and fullness to their breast by an implant alone.

However, some patients with redundant breast skin, may require a breast lift. The medical term for a breast lift is a mastopexy. A mastopexy lifts the nipple into the right position, and tightens any loose breast skin. This creates a more youthful appearing breast. An implant may be combined with a mastopexy when a patient is looking for both an increase in breast fullness and an improvement in nipple position. Some patients are very large breasted, and benefit from a breast reduction. Often, they complain of neck,back and shoulder pain. A breast reduction may be covered by insurance.

Patients who present with a congenital breast asymmetry may require a different procedures on each breast. Even though every patients’ situation is quite unique, the outcome of surgery is typically an increase in comfort and confidence.
