1. Breast Augmentation
If you want larger breasts, breast augmentation is the procedure for you. Many factors affect the size of your breasts, including genetics, pregnancy, and weight loss. With breast augmentation surgery, the surgeon places implants under the breast tissue or under the chest muscles.
You can choose to have the implants removed at any time if you no longer want them or if you want to get a larger size. They may need replacement, as they age as most implants only last about 10 years. There are different sizes of implants, so you can choose a size that compliments your body. Some patients choose breast augmentation to correct breast asymmetry.
2. Breast Reduction
On the other hand, some people want smaller breasts. During breast reduction surgery, the surgeon removes breast fat, glandular tissue, and excess skin to adjust the size of the breasts. Some patients want smaller breasts because they feel smaller breasts suit their body better, but many people turn to breast reduction surgery to relieve back pain.
Large breasts put a lot of strain and stress on the upper back, shoulders, and neck. This can lead to chronic pain. Breast reduction can also be used on men who have excess fat tissue, and it can help correct breast asymmetry.
3. Breast Lift
In some cases the breast size isn’t the issue; it’s the droop. Breasts may start to sag over time due to age, but pregnancy, breastfeeding, and weight changes can increase the risk of breasts that appear droopy or flat. Some people have a higher risk because of family history.
Typically, breast augmentation will not fix this issue. Instead, you’ll want to consider a breast lift. In fact, many patients get breast augmentation and a breast lift together. During a breast lift, the surgeon lifts the breast tissue and removes excess skin to prevent them from drooping again.
4. Nipple Surgeries
The nipples are an important part of the breast, and some procedures address the look, location, and size of the nipples. One of the main reasons patients get nipple surgery is to lift the nipples. Nipples may be low on the breast for many reasons, including age. As a result, they may start to point down. A nipple lift relocates them to a more desirable position. This procedure is often done in conjunction with breast augmentation, breast reduction, and a breast lift.
If your nipples are large, which is common after breastfeeding, you can ask about a nipple reduction. This also helps reduce the amount of rubbing and irritation from clothing. It also makes the nipples less noticeable under clothing.
Finally, some patients have inverted nipples. This happens when the nipples don’t protrude as they should. Depending on the severity, the nipple may or may not protrude when stimulated. This problem may occur by scar tissue under the nipple, and surgery can fix the issue by releasing the tissue.
You should feel comfortable in your own body, but genetics, time, pregnancy, weight loss, and many other factors can affect the size, shape, and position of your breasts and nipples. If you are unhappy with your breasts, it may be time to consider one or more breast procedures to enhance your appearance. If you would like to know more, contact us at Jaibaji Plastic Surgery today.
