All breasts are made of fatty tissue, glands, ducts, and skin. Deep to the breast is the chest muscle (pectoralis major). Pregnancy, weight loss, and aging can stretch the skin, which may cause sagging of the breasts.  No woman has two breasts that match exactly, and no surgeon can guarantee perfectly symmetric breasts. Implants are used to make the breasts larger via Breast Augmentation surgery, but they may not adequately lift the breast. In some cases, a mastopexy (breast lift) may also be recommended to raise the breast tissue. The right implant is the one that will balance your goals with what your tissues will safely allow.
