Completely revitalizing and improving the appearance of your breasts is easier than ever with modern cosmetic operations.

No matter what issues you are dealing with, a skilled surgeon will be able to help you come up with a comprehensive treatment plan that completely revitalizes your chest and boosts your overall confidence. In addition to breast lifts and implants, you might also want to consider nipple reconstruction surgery if your nipples are inverted, oversized, or asymmetrical.

Here is a quick look at some of the cosmetic operations that can be carried out to enhance the appearance of your breasts and nipples.                             

Breast Lift

There are many different reasons why a patient might want to undergo a breast lift, and that advanced procedure is now being carried out hundreds of thousands of times a year. The primary purpose of a breast lift is to pull the breasts higher on the chest so that they appear perkier and well-balanced.

During this operation, the surgeon is going to make one or more small incisions near both of the breasts. They can then use those incisions to excise skin and adjust the underlying tissue. The total length of the operation depends on a few different factors, but most patients can be driven home within a few hours of this procedure.

Breast Augmentation

While a lift could make the breasts appear larger, it isn’t going to increase the size of the breasts. If you simply want to enhance the overall size of your breasts, then breast augmentation surgery will most likely be the best option. That operation involves the use of silicone or saline implants that are inserted into the breasts, and it can increase the size of the breasts by one or more cup sizes.

Before you have breast augmentation surgery carried out, you will need to consider a few different factors, and that includes which type of material you would like in the implants as well as the incision sites.

For those who want the most realistic feeling breasts, silicone implants tend to be the best option. Unfortunately, those cosmetic devices must be completely filled before they are placed in the breasts, and that is going to require slightly larger incisions. If you want smaller incisions, then you should consider saline implants. While that material is slightly firmer, the implants don’t need to be filled until they are inserted.

Nipple Reconstruction

This procedure is an ideal option for anyone who is struggling with chronically inverted nipples, and it can be attached to an augmentation or lift procedure. In most cases, nipple inversion is typically caused by small strands of soft tissue that are attached to the outer layers of the nipple.

To correct that issue, the surgeon is going to make one small incision near the base of the nipple. They can then spread those threads out so that the nipple can move outward. Once that has been done, dissolvable sutures are placed just inside the nipple, and that thread should naturally disappear over the course of a few weeks.

All of these procedures can have a profound impact on a patient’s appearance as well as their overall confidence.
