Often called "breast enlargement," this involves the insertion of an implant behind breast tissue or above breast muscle, and may include a breast lift procedure.
Used to make chest curvature more proportional to overall body shape or where breasts are not equal in size, this also may involve a breast lift.
This common procedure can achieve dramatic results by elevating the nipple and restoring the breast to a more natural, youthful appearance.
Complications not uncommon with implant patients may eventually require additional surgery, as may those undergoing staged procedures following a mastectomy.
For the most natural-looking results, rebuilding the breast following mastectomy may be accompanied by changes to the unaffected breast.
