Why have a breast procedure?

Uneven breast size can affect self-confidence. It can be difficult to find the right bra’s and clothes. To correct uneven breasts your surgeon would need to assess you and understand what you want to achieve from your breast surgery (mammoplasty) procedure. This could include breast uplift, breast reduction or a combination including implants.

Loss of volume following pregnancy is a common problem shared by millions of women but some suffer more than others. Breast sizes can change dramatically through pregnancy and post pregnancy which results in the loss of volume. This can affect women who started with a small chest size as well as women who have larger natural chests to begin with. Your surgeon may recommend a breast uplift or an implant or a combination to help you achieve the right breast size and shape to achieve the look you want.

Large breasts can make you look out of proportion and in some cases, women suffer from backache as result of their breast size. In these circumstances, your surgeon would recommend a breast reduction surgery and would discuss with you the size and shape you would be happy with.
