Breast Augmentation and Reduction
Breast symmetry, shape and size – for both women and men – is a powerful visual clue to overall health and vitality. Breast profiles can be modified through augmentation, reduction, uplift and other procedures. A well-formed and well-sized breast profile can promote confidence and well-being.
The breast or chest (for men) defines the upper torso, and has become symbolic of femininity or masculinity. While ideals of breast size change over time, a reasonable breast volume proportional to the overall body size is important to overall appearance.
The size of brassieres is measured below the breast, not at the bust. Two women with 36-inch brassiere size may present with very different profiles, if their body shapes are different. Measurements include the circumference of the rib cage as well as back musculature. Height can also affect the “bustiness” of a woman’s profile. Taller women will appear more slender and shorter women fuller given the same bust size.
A breast or chest area that is properly proportioned is the aim of any number of procedures. Augmentation is designed to enlarge and shape. Reduction can reduce the size of unusually large breasts in women and men. Restoration and uplift can revive sagging breasts due to age, after childbirth or after dramatic weight loss.
