If you feel your breast size is small and/or drooping & wish that your breasts were larger and fuller, then breast augmentation surgery may be the right choice for you. Breast augmentation (augmentation mammoplasty) is a surgical procedure to enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breast.
For much of human history, the aesthetics of the female breast defined the female body form. Today, as the society becomes more image conscious, patients find it difficult to cope when subjected to mastectomy or removal of the breast for cancer. Fortunately, with progress in surgery, it is now possible to offer breast conserving surgeries to the majority of patients (with equal cure rates) as well as offer complete reconstruction of the breast when mastectomy is indicated.
Nipples come in a variety of shapes and sizes. The most common complaint is a nipple that is inverted or non-protruding. Alternatively, the areola, the pigmented region around the nipple may be too large for the breast. Some, such as those that are undergoing breast reconstruction, have lost their nipple altogether and need a new one created.
