Breast enlargement, also referred to as augmentation, breast implants or boob job, is a common and popular way to enhance or increase the size of a woman’s breast size. With this procedure, a silicone or saline implant is surgically placed inside the breast to increase volume. Women with small breasts often turn to breast enhancement surgery for a wide range of reasons, including restoring fullness after having children, correct asymmetry and breast shape, reconstruction after breast cancer, weight loss and more.
Please read through some of the frequently asked questions and before and after breast surgery care directions that Dr. Bashioum has put together below.
Patients now have another choice when it comes to breast augmentation. Fat grafting has been proven to be effective in increasing the size of breasts naturally by using the fat transfer grafting technique. Fat grafts naturally contain a population of adipose stem cells. The regenerative properties of these cells are particularly effective for these new procedures, because the fat cells become a natural living part of the tissues where it is placed. Regenerative medicine is offering exciting changes in the way we practice medicine. To learn more click here.
Breast lift surgery (mastopexy) enhances the shape of the breast, while a breast reduction (reduction mammoplasty) reduces the breast size while also improving its shape. During both procedures, breast tissue is surgically removed to elevate the breast and reposition the nipple higher on the chest. Many women who are done having children, lost weight or have gone through hormonal changes seek breast lifts or reductions to give their busts a more natural appearance that more accurately matches their body proportions.
