Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure to enhance the size and shape of a woman's breasts. The implant shell may be filled with either saline solution (sterile salt water) or elastic silicone gel and can be paired with a breast lift.
Breast lift is a surgical procedure to raise and reshape sagging breasts by removing excess tissue. Mastopexy can also reduce the size of the areola, the darker skin surrounding the nipple.
Breast reduction is designed for women with very large, pendulous breasts who may experience a variety of medical problems caused by the excessive weight, such as back pain or infection.
Breast implant removal or revision is a surgical procedure that removes or replaces breast implants placed during breast augmentation. The procedure may be indicated for medical reasons or it may be the patient’s personal choice.
To achieve a variety of cosmetic results, Dr. Lowe often recommends combined breast augmentation with lift treatment. This treatment is particularly effective for women who have sagging, droopy breasts, and can help you achieve a fuller, more youthful figure again.
