Do you have small and/or asymmetrical breasts? If so, you may also feel a lack of a more feminine physique. In order to achieve a fuller bust, many of these individuals often turn to breast augmentation. In La Jolla, a qualified and experienced plastic surgeon can perform this procedure in order to enhance the size and/or shape of the breasts.
Breast Enlargement Surgery
Medically termed “augmentation mammaplasty,” this procedure is designed to add volume to the breasts and provide a fuller contour. Your La Jolla plastic surgeon can place either saline or silicone gel filled breast implants above or beneath the chest muscle. Incision can be made under the breast, around the nipple, in the armpit, or through the belly button. Based on your desired outcome, the most appropriate technique will be used.
In addition to breast enhancement, your surgeon may also perform breast lift surgery if there is significant sagging present. This is often due to pregnancy and/or aging; the breasts lose volume and the skin lacks elasticity. Liposuction and tummy tuck surgery are also often combined in what is commonly termed a “Mommy Makeover” to help women regain their pre-pregnancy shape. The option to combine these procedures will be discussed during your consultation.
