Regarding:Cosmetic Breast Surgery

Breast Augmentaion Surgery

Breast Augmentation has to be the most common surgery.  This will require the use of an implant either saline filled or gel filled silicone. The surgeon has to create a space for the implant & could be located in front of the muscle or behind the muscle a third and most desirable placement would be behind the pectoral fascia. This surgical space has to be large enough to accommodate the implant volume chosen in a tridimensional modality. The choice of location of the implant & the size of the implant will be the surgeon decision with patient collaboration. Different incision could be used but is the lesser importance.
Periareolar, Submammary or axillary.

Breast Lift or Masteopexy

Is the procedure in order to remove or re-shape the breast when is sagging (usually after pregnancies). This procedure also has different techniques and the choice of those, are the surgeon decision. Same techniques will work for small correction (like periareolar mastopexy), put when the sagging is severe, the skin reduction with inverted anchor incision is preferred. This will result in residual scars, important consideration for young patients, since the scars will be permanent and few times too large. Occasionally a breast augmentation is done to increase the volume as well. This can be done at the same time or at the different stage. But for safety, staging will decrease risk of complications.
