Options in Breast Surgery

May 28, 2011 Scott Newman

Plastic surgeons first attempted to create breast implants in 1890 through the use of paraffin injections. Breast implants and breast augmentation surgery has evolved greatly since then.

Common Types of Breast Surgery

Breast augmentation surgeries rate as the most popular plastic surgery today. However, you may not know about some other common procedures that plastic surgeons perform to help women obtain their ideal shape. Some of the most common breast surgeries performed include:

  • Breast Augmentation – using silicone or saline breast implants, this procedure allows women to increase the size of their breasts to be more proportional to their body.
  • Breast Reduction – a procedure used to remove breast implants or excess fat, glandular tissue and skin from natural breasts. Many patients who opt for breast reduction surgery look to alleviate discomfort or to achieve a breast size more proportional to their body.
  • Breast Lift – a procedure used to firm, raise and shape sagging breasts to produce a more youthful appearance.
