Here’s a fantastic case of breast augmentation surgery


The goal of breast reduction is to relieve the weight of large, heavy breasts in order to improve physical discomfort. A therapeutic reduction mammoplasty usually reduces the size of your breast by removing both skin and breast tissue. Therefore, this treatment is most suitable if you have moderate to large breasts.

This treatment can also improve the shape, appearance, and size of heavy breasts, as well as sagging skin.

Breast reduction surgery can be a dramatic change, or a more subtle change like in this case


This procedure involves the lifting and reshaping of the breasts. The treatment is used to remedy severe ptosis of the skin, commonly known as sagging breasts.


This patient combined a breast lift with liposuction, in just one surgical session.


As the name suggests, a breast lift is combined with implants, adding fullness and volume to the breasts.

It also adds fullness to the overall shape of the breasts and involves repositioning the nipples to a more central location on the breast mound.

This surgery can improve the appearance, shape, and profile of your breasts without the use of implants.

It is a breast augmentation procedure that uses your own fat. Thus, it does not require a silicone implant or saline solution.

A fat transfer breast augmentation is performed by transferring fat from a donor site (such as the hips, buttocks, and waist) using liposuction, to the breasts.

Implant removal or breast explant surgery is available for patients who are not satisfied with the appearance of their breast implants after augmentation. Alternatively, patients who have experienced a problem with their implants can opt for this intervention. It cold be required due to a rupture or capsular contracture or other complication.

Another reason may be to change them for smaller or larger implants.

Noticeably uneven (severely asymmetrical) breasts and nipples are known as breast asymmetry. Surgery can help correct this condition. It can also be cosmetic or even medically justified.

This treatment could include a combo of different procedures: reduction, lift, or breast augmentation.
