Some women want to correct visibly asymmetrical breasts that have always made them feel self-conscious. Other women are hoping to gain a new look with larger breasts that better accentuate their silhouette, or provide them with the curves they have always desired. And some women visit Dr. Costanzo’s Thousand Oaks plastic surgery practice for a breast augmentation consultation because they have droopy breasts, which have begun sagging either due to situations such as aging, losing a significant amount of weight, pregnancy or breastfeeding. And these women are wondering, “Can a breast augmentation correct droopy breasts?”

A Breast Augmentation Can Make Your Breasts Perkier.

In his Thousand Oaks plastic surgery practice, Dr. Costanzo uses both silicone and saline breast implants to enhance volume and add shape to women’s breasts. Carefully placed breast implants can help your breasts appear fuller, higher and provide you with a curvier contour.

Sometimes, a Combination of a Breast Augmentation and Breast Lift Are Needed to Give You Your Desired Look.

All women and all bodies are different. And depending on your unique case, a breast augmentation alone might not fix droopy breasts. In his Thousand Oaks plastic surgery practice, it is very common for Dr. Costanzo to combine a breast augmentation with a breast lift to help give women with droopy breasts the new look they desire.

What is a Breast Lift?

A breast lift is a cosmetic surgery procedure designed to remove excess skin from droopy breasts and lift the breasts up to a perkier position. Often combined with a breast augmentation, a breast lift can provide Thousand Oaks women with more aesthetically appealing breasts, and a more youthful look.

Making a Decision About Breast Augmentation.

It’s never easy to decide to undergo plastic surgery, and a breast augmentation and/or breast lift are not for everyone. It’s great to begin your decision-making process by researching procedures on reputable medical websites so that you can begin forming a list of questions to ask a board certified plastic surgeon, like Dr. Costanzo. However, nothing compares to speaking with a skilled, board-certified plastic surgeon in person.

During a free consultation with Dr. Costanzo in his Thousand Oaks office, he will listen to your concerns and your desired results. Often, Dr. Costanzo’s patients bring in photos of women whose breasts have the look they want, which help Dr. Costanzo better understand his patients’ goals.

After discussing your wishes, Dr. Costanzo will perform a full breast examination so he can understand your unique anatomy and what procedure(s) will help shape your breasts.

After listening to your concerns, helping you choose your procedures and implants shape and size, and explaining your plastic surgery procedure(s) to you, Dr. Costanzo will then explain the recovery process and answer any questions you may have.
