Choosing Between a Breast Lift, Breast Augmentation or Breast Reduction

There are several things that can affect the shape, profile, size and height of your breasts. For some women, this can cause discomfort, affect the self-esteem, or even exacerbate other medical issues. At Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Center of Tennessee, Dr. Mitchell D. Kaye can offer you a wide range of options for improving the shape, size and appearance of your breasts.

A breast augmentation might be called for if you’re dissatisfied with the size of your breasts. Silicone implants have always been a popular option as they feel close to natural breast tissue. There is a small chance of a leak developing in the membrane over time, so you’ll need to periodically come in for checkups with Dr. Mitchell D. Kaye.

Saline implants have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration as an alternative to silicone implants. The implants are filled with a sterile saline solution that will be harmlessly absorbed by your body should one of the implants develop a leak in the membrane.

A breast lift is a cosmetic surgical treatment designed to raise the height of your breasts by removing excess skin and tightening your natural breast tissue. This effectively reshapes each breast while restoring some of its youthful support.

The incision strategy Dr. Mitchell D. Kaye advocates will be based on your personal preference, unique breast shape, as well as the size and location of your areola. This helps minimize the amount of visible scarring once the skin has fully healed.

In recent years, breast lifts have become almost twice as popular than breast augmentation.

A breast reduction shares many similarities with a breast lift. Of course, the most significant difference is that breast material and additional skin will need to be removed. This will reduce and lift the breast while also adjusting the areola.
