If you would like to improve the appearance of your breasts, it’s important to know what your surgical options are.
Many women feel dissatisfied with the appearance of their breasts, but the good news is that there are a number of procedures available that can make a significant difference — both functionally and aesthetically. Read on to find out what breast surgery options are available, and which one might be right for you…
Breast augmentation surgery
Breast augmentation surgery refers to a procedure in which the breasts are made larger with the help of implants. This procedure is ideal for women who would like to increase the overall fullness of their breasts while enhancing their projection and proportions. Breast augmentation can also go a long way in balancing one’s figure.
Breast augmentation surgery is performed under general anaesthesia, so it is important to remember that it is a major procedure and something to be carefully considered before you go ahead. Although post-operative pain is usually minimal, any discomfort can be managed with pain relief medication as recommended by Mr David Morgan. You will need to wear a soft surgical bra for support and comfort for around three weeks following surgery while your breasts heal. It is also generally recommended that you avoid heavy lifting and strenuous exercise for around six weeks while your body recovers.

Breast lift (mastopexy) surgery
For women who are unhappy with droopy or saggy breasts, a breast lift (mastopexy) procedure can be highly effective. During the surgery, breasts are either filled with implants or the breast tissue is surgically lifted. In some cases, a combination of these techniques is used.
Breast lift (mastopexy) surgery is often well suited to women who have been through pregnancy and breastfeeding. The natural ageing process can also cause breasts to drop from their original position on the front of the chest, in which case a breast lift (mastopexy) is often a good solution.
During a breast lift procedure, which is also known as mastopexy, the position of the breasts will be lifted and the overall fullness can be enhanced. Some minor scarring can be expected, although the extent and placement of the scars will depend on the amount of lift that you require, as well as the quality of your skin and breast tissue.

Breast reduction (reduction mammaplasty) surgery
Breast reduction (reduction mammaplasty) surgery is a popular treatment for women who suffer from back, shoulder and neck pain caused by having particularly large breasts. Excessively large breasts often cause heaviness, as well as an increased risk of droopiness over time.
Reduction surgery (reduction mammaplasty) involves a reduction in the size of the breasts, and can also elevate and reshape the breasts for an enhanced appearance. In many cases, a breast reduction (reduction mammaplasty) helps to achieve a breast shape that looks natural and is well proportioned with the rest of the body.
Many women who undergo breast reduction (reduction mammaplasty) surgery feel relief from uncomfortable symptoms like back and neck pain, as well as problems with rashes and infections that develop underneath the breasts.
Breast reduction surgery (reduction mammaplasty) typically requires a hospital stay of between one and three nights. In some cases, liposuction can also be performed as part of the procedure as the process often helps to achieve the desired result.
