Breast implants are generally used to increase the size of the existing breast by inserting implants or fillers under the breast tissue to increase the cup size. Whereas breast lifts are procedures used to augment the shape of the breast and also fix the sagging or drooping breasts. Breast lifts don’t include addition to the breast size but altering its shape making it look more rounded and firm.

Breast Augmentation Reviews
“Hello! This is officially my second procedure. I had my breast done with Nexus in June 2017, now I’m getting a BA and possible lift in March 2018! I am over the moon, I trust Nexus with every fiber of my being!!! They outdid themselves with my procedures. I cannot wait for them to transform me again!!!“
“I’ve always wanted a boob job, ever since early days of high school. Right now I’m way heavier than I usually am, after dealing with some personal issues. This had lead me to have fairly big boobs (C cup) but they’re still very uneven, and even when big, my boobs are very bottom heavy. After my session at Nexus I am very pleased with the results. At last my boobs are even and in the best shape I have ever seen them. Thank you Nexus.“
