Breast implants add volume to existing breast tissue to create a fuller chest. Implant options include silicone or saline, rounded or shaped, and textured or smooth, all of which come in a variety of sizes. In addition to choosing the style of implant you want, there are several options for incision locations to consider.

Breast Lift

93% Worth It Rating

Mastopexy (commonly referred to as a breast lift without implants or a breast uplift in the UK) restores shape and volume that may have been lost due to age, weight loss, or nursing. With most breast lifts, the nipple and areola are shifted to a higher position in order to create a natural look. If you want larger (as well as perkier) breasts, a breast lift with implants might be worth researching. Learn more in our breast lift overview

Breast Lift with Implants

95% Worth It Rating

A breast lift reshapes sagging or uneven breasts, which may have been affected by aging, pregnancy, or weight loss. The nipple and areola are often shifted to a higher, more youthful position. A breast lift with implants uses this same technique, while also placing silicone or saline breast implants for added volume.

Breast Reconstruction

96% Worth It Rating

Breast reconstruction is most commonly performed following a mastectomy. Women who want to restore the volume and shape of their breasts may choose to get breast implants, tissue (commonly called "flap") reconstruction, or a combination. Doctors tend to recommend tissue reconstruction for patients who have undergone radiation therapy, due to their increased risks for capsular contracture (a problematic scar tissue response to implants). Nipple reconstruction is also frequently part of the process.

Breast Reduction

A breast reduction involves the removal of excess fat, skin, and tissue, which usually results in the nipple and areola being shifted to a higher position. If the areola has been stretched due to the size of the breast, it may also be reduced. Not only does this surgery result in a smaller, perkier bust, it can also help eliminate the back, shoulder, and neck pain that’s often caused by large breasts.

FTM Chest Masculinization Surgery

97% Worth It Rating

Chest masculinization surgery involves removing female breast tissue from beneath the skin in order to create a male chest. Nipples and areola are left intact, although usually smaller. With small breasts, little to no skin needs to be removed during surgery. Larger or more drooping breasts may require skin removal or elevating the nipples and areola.
