If you are unhappy with the overall appearance of your breasts, you might consider cosmetic surgery to enhance the way they look. Breast Augmentation and Breast Lift surgery are two of the most popular form of cosmetic surgery for women in the U.S. Countless women regain confidence in their shape through these surgeries every year.

Breast Lift Surgery

Sagging breasts is a common complaint women have about their appearance as they age. The effects of gravity over time, combined with naturally looser, thinner skin across our breasts can cause them to sag, droop and hang much lower than they did when we were in our 20s. Pregnancy, breastfeeding and fluctuations in weight contribute to the loss of volume and increased drooping in the breast area. Fortunately, Breast Lift surgery can restore breast firmness and situate them higher on the chest, causing them to look perkier and more youthful than before. Many patients combine Breast Lift surgery with an Augmentation/Enlargement, for a total transformation in the appearance of one of their most feminine features.

What does Breast Lift surgery involve?

A Breast Lift is a surgical procedure to remove excess skin from the breast area and reshape the breast tissue so that it is situated higher on the chest wall. To do this, incisions are made under the nipple. Exactly which type of uplift Dr. Faulkner will recommend will depend on your current breast appearance and the end result you hope to achieve. The procedure will not change the overall size of your breasts, but they may look fuller as a result of their new position. Like a Breast Augmentation, this procedure is carried out under general anesthetic and carries a significant recovery period while your incisions heal and your new breasts settle into their improved position.

What does Breast Augmentation surgery involve?

Breast Augmentation surgery involves using implants to add size, shape, and volume to the breasts. In some instances, a patient may choose Breast Augmentation if one breast is significantly larger than the other, a woman might utilize the implants to make the breasts appear more symmetrical. The result? Larger, fuller, firmer breasts that enhance your shape and appearance.

There are two types of implants that can be used. Silicone implants are pre-filled and available in various different sizes. During your consultation with Dr. Faulkner, you will be allowed to see and feel the different silicone implants available. Together, you will decide which size is both achievable and meets your expectations. Alternatively, you may wish to consider saline implants. These are supplied and inserted empty and will be filled once they are in place in your chest. It is important to recognize the skin will need to stretch to accommodate your new breasts. As such, it may not be possible to increase more than a few cup sizes at a time. Dr. Faulkner will discuss this with you during your consultation.
