Some women may be happy with their breasts but just want them made fuller. Often after weight loss, aging or childbirth a woman's breast volume and shape may change.

Patients who are generally satisfied with the size of their breasts can have a breast lift to raise and firm them, resulting in a more youthful breast contour.

If you have lost breast volume over the years and want to add more fullness, implants inserted in conjunction with a breast lift can increase breast size at the same time as the shape and position of the breasts are enhanced.  There are many variations in breast lift technique.  Dr. Blalock will determine the best technique for you based on the size and shape of your breast.
