Breast augmentation will enlarge your breasts. It will not improve nipple asymmetry, move breasts closer together, or lift droopy breasts. Breast augmentation is performed to balance a difference in breast size, improve body contour or as a post-surgery reconstructive technique. Silicone or saline implants are placed either directly under the breast tissue or beneath the chest wall muscle, giving breasts a fuller and more natural contour. Learn more about breast implants.

A breast lift, or mastopexy, is a surgical procedure that lifts and reshapes the breasts. It can also reduce the size of the areola (the dark skin surrounding the nipple). Many women seek mastopexy following weight loss, pregnancy, lactation or menopause. There are a number of possible surgical techniques based on the degree of sagging, the areola, nipple position, breast volume, and the amount of excess skin. Mild sagging may be corrected by breast augmentation. Learn more about breast lifts.

The type of breast reconstruction procedure performed depends on your medical situation, breast shape and size, and goals. Women with small or medium sized breasts are the best candidates for breast reconstruction.
