I am 37 years old with two children. During my pregnancies my breasts got larger and now they have dropped in size and are saggy. I've lost confidence in my appearance and would like to improve the look of my breasts. Would breast augmentation be the way to go?
Your experience is very common among many women who have had children. Breast augmentation can definitely help restore a more proportional and youthful shape to your chest and your whole figure. If you are "saggy" you may also need a breast lift procedure. Speak with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in your area who can examine you in detail and explain your options. Breast augmentation with or without a lift is one of the most common procedures I perform. You'll love the results! Good luck. www.ganchi.com
I have one breast that is much more larger than the other. Is it possible to have a Breast Reduction where only one breast is reduced and the other breast is left totally alone without any surgery to it?
It is definitely possible to have surgery only on one breast and not the other. Breast reduction can reduce the larger breast to better match the smaller breast. However, to get the best symmetry, we often perform surgery on both breasts to get better symmetry of size, shape or position of the nipple. The other breast may have breast augmentation or breast lift (mastopexy). Operating on both breasts is not required and will depend on the differences that exist between your breasts. Speak with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who can examine you and review the options that best fit your needs. Good luck! www.ganchi.com
