Breast Augmentation with Implants
We have a full section covering every detail of breast augmentation to help answer common questions women have before undergoing breast enlargement with implants. The site covers topics including:
Breast Lift and Breast Reduction
Mastopexy, breast lift, can help to restore perkiness to now sagging breasts.
Breast reduction involves reducing the size of the breasts to achieve a look more proportionate to your frame. It can also help relieve back strain in more severe cases. Breast reduction can be combined with breast lift for great, natural looking results.
Breast Reconstructive Surgery
Reconstructive surgery of the breast is most often performed on women who have had a mastectomy, a medical procedure that removes all the breast tissue as a way to treat or prevent breast cancer.
ImplantInfo is a big supporter of breast cancer research and the Cristine Meredith Miele Foundation. Cristine ‘Crissy’ Miele was a beloved employee of ImplantInfo who lost her battle with breast cancer in 2010.

Please help ImplantInfo support breast cancer research through the Cristine Meredith Miele Foundation
, set-up in loving memory of Cristine “Crissy” Miele. Crissy was a loving wife and mother and dedicated member of the ImplantInfo family who lost her battle with breast cancer in July 2010.
Your donations support Dr. Kenneth Offit and his research team. They are focusing genetic testing on families, like Crissy’s, where breast cancer is hereditary and develops from a yet unidentified gene mutation. Advances can improve early detection and help future generations, including Crissy’s daughters.
No donation is too small, and your support means the world. Please help us continue Crissy’s courageous fight.
