Breast Lift Raleigh

This procedure is designed to lift smaller breasts that possess less than severe ptosis, or sagging, through the removal of a doughnut-shaped piece of tissue around the areola. The Benelli Lift is less invasive than full mastopexy (breast lift) and is not intended for patients seeking more drastic enhancement, such as a breast augmentation with lift.

Breast Implants Raleigh

Also known as breast augmentation, breast implant surgery involves the use of saline or silicone-gel implants to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. This procedure can be performed either for cosmetic reasons, or breast reconstruction, following cancer treatment. Various factors may determine the type of implants that are utilized for each patient. (Silicone-gel implants were re-approved for surgical use in 2006. Specific details can be discussed with your surgeon.)

Breast Augmentation Raleigh

Technically known as “augmentation mammoplasty,” breast augmentation is designed to surgically enhance breast size with breast implants. It can correct a reduction in breast volume after pregnancy, help balance a difference in size, or implemented as a reconstructive technique following breast surgery. Breast enhancement can be performed using either saline or silicone-gel implants, depending on a variety of factors. Sometimes, breast augmentation can be performed in conjunction with or as an alternative to the breast lift procedure. (Silicone-gel breast implants were approved in November 2006 for use in breast reconstruction surgery for women of all ages and breast enlargement for women 22 years and older.)
