The breasts can lose volume and their shape can change after weight loss, childbirth or as a result of aging. Breast augmentation can enhance the size of the breast as well as give you a better proportioned figure. Your plastic surgeon will examine your breasts and take into consideration factors such as the size and shape of your breasts, the quality of your skin and the placement of your nipples.
If you are satisfied with the size of your breasts but wish to restore a more youthful contour, you may be a candidate for breast lift. If you have lost considerable volume in your breasts you may also want to consider having cohesive gel breast implants inserted at the time of breast lift surgery.
If you find that your breasts are very large and heavy, and that they create discomfort to your shoulders, back and neck, you may be a candidate for a breast reduction. While a breast reduction can be performed in the teenage years, it is recommended that the procedure be undertaken only when breast development is completed, and when sufficient maturity has been attained to understand all of the issues involved. Childbirth and breast-feeding can also have a significant effect on the size and shape of your breasts.
