Breast enlargement can be accomplished in two primary ways. In traditional breast enlargement procedures, surgeons typically relied on saline or silicone gel implants.

Breast Lift Surgery (mastopexy) is a plastic surgery procedure that removes excess skin and sometimes tissue of the breast, to lift and tighten skin to achieve smaller, more perky, rounder shaped breasts. This is commonly performed in women who have experienced sagging of the breast with age, weight loss, after having children and breastfeeding, or those who want to change the shape of their breasts.
Often a Breast Reduction with Lift is appropriate for a woman who’s breast have sagged as a result of aging, pregnancy, weight loss and other factors. The size of the breasts are reduced, raised to a more natural position and often reshaped. The nipple and areola are often relocated and in some cases the areola is resized for further enhancement.
