Areola reduction, sometimes called nipple reduction, is a procedure which reduces the size of the areola, the nipple or both. It is performed as part of a breast reduction and breast lift routinely but can also be performed alone.
Breast augmentation is known by several other names, including augmentation mammaplasty, breast enlargement and breast implants. It is one of the most commonly performed procedures performed by plastic surgeons today, and involves the use of implants to improve the contour of your breasts.
Breast reconstruction surgery involves rebuilding the breast to restore its natural look. The procedure is often done right after a mastectomy, but it may be delayed if there are underlying medical conditions.
Also known as reduction mammaplasty, breast reduction surgery removes a combination of excess fat, glandular tissue and skin to achieve a breast size in proportion with your body and to alleviate the symptoms associated with overly large breasts. It is one of the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures and provides vast numbers of women relief from the problems associated with large breasts.
Inverted nipple surgery corrects invaginated nipples, which are retracted into the breast. Inverted nipples can usually be brought outward with minimal invasive surgery.
One of the more common breast procedures, a breast lift or mastopexy, is surgery that corrects the appearance of saggy, deflated breasts. There are many reasons that breasts can hang lower than you would like and these include genetics, pregnancy, breast feeding, weight loss or gain, and aging.
