Breast augmentation is a process that increases the size and improves the shape of the breasts. Most commonly, this involves placing implants underneath the breasts in a come-and-go surgery. Breast augmentation can sometimes be combined with a breast lift to obtain the desired appearance.
Mastopexy, or more commonly referred to as a breast lift, is a cosmetic procedure that surgically raises and reshapes sagging breasts. It improves contour and elevation, creating a more youthful and perky bust.
Overly large breasts can be burdensome, causing neck and back pain, difficulty fitting in clothes and skin irritation where the breasts rub against the skin of the chest and belly. For some teenagers and women, large breasts can be a source of social discomfort, attracting unwanted attention. Exercising may be more difficult too as large breasts can “get in the way.” The proper medical term for problems caused by large breasts is “symptomatic macromastia.” For a woman experiencing any combination of these symptoms, breast reduction surgery may be a good choice.
There are times when breast implants should be removed. There is no question that the technology of implants and the techniques of augmentation have improved over time, but breast implants are rarely forever. Perhaps they are causing a problem such as capsular contracture, or have ruptured or deflated. Or maybe you just no longer want them. What suited your body and lifestyle when you chose to have breast augmentation done may have changed over time, and the breast implants may no longer be what you want. Whatever the reason, implants can be removed safely, and often with no additional scars.
Opting for a breast augmentation may have been an exciting decision at one point. You wanted to enhance your bust in order to look and feel more youthful, mature, or feminine. However, as time has gone on, you may have changed your mind about the look and feel of your breasts, may have experienced a complication, or may have reached the lifetime recommendation to exchange your implants.
