Breast surgery is more than just breast implants. People have breast surgery for many different reasons and there are various treatments available.

Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation through breast enhancement surgery, is one of the most common cosmetic surgical procedures. The aim of breast enhancement is to give the patient a natural looking bustline along with the self confidence they may have otherwise been lacking. There are many treatments options for those seeking breast enhancement, the video below goes through a number of these choices. Those who seeking breast augmentation generally have similar feelings of inadequacy or are self conscious about their appearance. Other common reasons for women seeking breast enhancement surgery include a changed shape after childbirth, an inability to find clothing that is well fitted to both the hips and bustline or asymmetric breasts.

Breast Reduction Surgery

Sometimes this surgery is for more than cosmetic reasons, as there are serious health concerns that can come from having large breasts. The stress from carrying around that excess weight can result in major neck, shoulder and back pain. And sometimes these issues can become permanent. Breast reduction surgery is a procedure to reduce breast size and relieve all of these symptoms. The procedure itself is fairly straightforward and is performed under general anaesthetic in roughly three hours.

Breast Lift

Breastfeeding and fluctuations in weight also take their toll. If you’re dissatisfied with the way that your breast have begun to drop and feel self conscious about the way they look, then you may want to consider a breast lift. The procedure is normally performed under general anesthetic, though sometimes under intravenous sedation. The procedure is generally over in under two hours and is a day surgery.
