Is Breast Enlargement for You?
Free, no-obligation breast enlargement consultations with our board-certified (American Board of Plastic Surgery) surgeons are available to answer all of your cosmetic breast surgery questions. For some women, breast lift surgery with or without implants may give a superior result; personal consultations at Minneapolis Plastic Surgery, Ltd., give our patients the opportunity to speak with an experienced plastic surgeon about their specific breast anatomy and cosmetic goals. Exact costs and payment or financing options are provided at the time of your consultation.
Candidates for Breast Enlargement
Some women who choose breast enlargement do so to restore breast volume lost as a result of pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight loss, or aging. Others request this outpatient operation to improve symmetry in breasts that have never matched in size, and many women simply seek the improvement in self-image or clothing fit that fuller breast size gives them.
Some women with more severe loss of breast volume, causing sagging or nipple position below the inframammary crease or pointing downward, may require one of several breast lifting operations (with or without implants). Examination and measurements will immediately tell us if breast lift surgery is necessary, or if excellent results can be obtained with implants alone. Implants do not lift breasts, but in some “borderline” cases can fill out the deflated skin brassiere and provide good results without the additional scars and cost of breast lift surgery.

Whatever the reason for requesting information about breast augmentation, you must understand that this operation is appropriate for you if and only if:
- You have realistic expectations regarding potential risks vs. benefits.
- Your breast development is complete (for younger women).
- Your nipple/areola complexes face forward and are at or above the level of the inframammary crease (IMC).
- You have decided to undergo this operation to feel better about yourself, not to live up to the expectations of anyone else.
- You are not pregnant or breastfeeding.
