The term “breast enhancement” includes a variety of surgical procedures that are designed to lift, firm, reshape, enlarge or enhance a woman’s breasts. Breast augmentation, breast reconstruction, male breast reduction (gynecomastia) and breast lift procedures all fall under the blanket of breast enhancement procedures. The term “breast enhancement” is also a generalized term for such procedures as the removal or exchange of breast implants, breast reduction surgeries and breast surgery corrections.
Benefits Of Breast Enhancement
There have been many improvements and developments in breast enhancement procedures over the years, with patients now enjoying a more natural look and feel and a reduction in the length of downtime and risk of complications. Many women elect to undergo breast enhancement as a way of altering the size, shape, position or look of their breasts. Others do so in order to correct a lopsided or uneven appearance, to replace volume and add lift to sagging breasts, or to eliminate the painful physical effects due to the weight of excessively large breasts. Many patients report that, as a result of undergoing their breast enhancement procedure, their self-esteem and sense of confidence was significantly increased due to achieving a more attractive appearance.

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure designed to enlarge the breasts via insertion of silicone or saline implants inside the breast tissue. It is a safe, effective procedure and one of the most common cosmetic procedures performed in the U.S.
In some cases, women who have had past breast augmentation surgery grow unhappy with the size or presence of the implants and may decide to either have them removed or exchanged for implants of another size. Breast implant removal, like the original augmentation, is a relatively simple procedure. Dr. Karaca may choose to use the same incision sites created during the initial procedure in order to prevent further scarring.
Breast lift surgery, also known as mastopexy, is a procedure done to improve the appearance of sagging breasts. The results, while generally long-lasting, may be affected in the future by any future pregnancies and the natural aging process.
Breast reconstruction surgery is a procedure used to recreate natural-looking breasts for women who have had their own natural breasts removed due to cancer, injury or other diseases or conditions. The goal of breast reconstruction is to restore the appearance, shape and size of the breasts to resemble the patient’s natural breasts as closely as possible.
Breast reduction, or mammaplasty, is the surgical procedure done in order to reduce the size and volume of the breasts. Not only is the size of the breasts reduced but also their fullness and weight as they are reshaped to a more youthful appearance.
Gynecomastia refers to breast reduction surgery for males. This procedure is becoming increasingly common as men are looking for a tighter, more sculpted and masculine chest appearance. During the procedure, excessive breast tissue is removed by either liposuction or surgery.
Am I A Good Candidate For Breast Enhancement?
Just about anyone looking to improve the size, shape and appearance of their breasts or chest contour may be a good candidate for breast enhancement procedures, provided they are in good health overall. In addition, those women who have experienced a decrease in cup size after breastfeeding or weight loss and those who have experienced the effects of natural aging on the breasts may be excellent candidates, considering overall good health.
How Much Does Breast Enhancement Cost In Detroit?
While breast reconstruction surgery following a mastectomy is generally considered a medically necessary procedure, most other breast enhancement procedures are not. Therefore, most health insurance providers do not provide coverage. To help make breast enhancement more affordable for his patients, Dr. Karaca is proud to offer financing options. In addition, our office also accepts payments in the form of cash, personal check, and credit card.
