Breast augmentation surgery involves the placement of saline or silicone-filled implants to increase the size of small breasts. Saline and silicone implants are both approved by the FDA for safety and come in a variety of sizes. They are placed either above or beneath the chest muscle through incisions under the breast, under the arm or around the nipple.

Breast Implant Removal
When a woman makes the decision to have breast augmentation surgery, she probably doesn’t think she will ever want, or need, to have them removed in the future. However, as many as 40,000 women undergo breast implant removal surgery each year due to various medical conditions, or simply because they’re unhappy with the way their new breasts look.

Breast lift surgery elevates saggy or droopy breasts into a higher, more youthful position on the chest. Breast lift is popular among women who have noticed sagging breasts (a condition known as ptosis) due to the effects of pregnancy, aging or significant weight loss.

It may also be appropriate for women who have suffered trauma to the breast or have a deformity.
