Breast Augmentation / Implants

Breast augmentation (also known as breast implants) is one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in the country. People often get breast augmentation and implants confused, but they are essentially the same thing. Augmentation is the procedure itself, and implants are what is used to augment the breasts.

The reason that breast augmentation or implant surgery procedures are so popular is because of their long, successful track record. It is one of the best options available for women who want to enhance, regain, or restore confidence in their figures. 

Breast augmentation increases breast size by using silicone gel implants and sometimes existing fat tissue.

Breast Reduction or Lift

There are several reasons why women might want a breast reduction or breast lift. Women might want their breasts reduced if they’ve had children, are overweight, are genetically predisposed to large or disproportionate breasts, or are sensitive to the hormone estrogen. Big breasts can run in a family, inherited from mothers and grandmothers.

A breast lift on the other hand, is an excellent way to improve sagging or uneven breasts, decreased breast volume, drooping nipples, and stretched areolas. The result is increased confidence from a more youthful and firm breast shape.

Breast Revision or Correction

A breast revision or correction is used to correct any breast irregularities or problems from past breast surgery. Sometimes breasts can be naturally uneven, with dramatic differences in cup sizes. Breasts can also have a tubular or conical shape. Several procedures can be used to correct these natural irregularities including breast lifts, implants, and surgery.

As far as correcting problems from past breast surgeries, even the most well-executed breast enhancement can develop issues over time. But there are many cases where breast surgeries aren’t done correctly.

There are several reasons women might need a breast revision or correction:

  • Change to gel breast implant
  • Excessive scar tissue can develop around a breast implant 
  • Breast implants may be poorly positioned (too high, low, or far apart)
  • Rippling of breast implants
  • Breasts may start to sag after implant surgery

Every situation is different, but Dr. Willis will be able to create a plan for your unique needs.
