Learn more about breast surgery at Cleveland Clinic. Your breasts often change over time, losing their youthful shape and firmness. Or you may have very large breasts that cause body image issues and even physical pain. Procedures offered include breast augmentation, breast lift and breast reduction.

Procedure Why Consider It?

Breast Augmentation

Breasts of fuller shape and size are realized through saline or silicone implants placed either under or over the chest muscle.

  • Offers improved contours
  • Can correct asymmetry or unevenness in breast size

Breast Lift (Mastopexy)

Raises and firms the breasts by removing excess skin and tightening the surrounding tissue.

  • Restores youthful shape and firmness
  • Improves breast shape, volume, and/or firmness

Breast Reduction

Removes excess tissue and skin to achieve a breast size in proportion with your body, alleviating discomfort associated with overly large breasts.

  • Safe and effective option for women with large, heavy breasts
  • Alleviates physical pain and discomfort, including back or shoulder pain
