To restore breast volume lost due to weight loss or following pregnancy.
To achieve better symmetry when breasts are moderately dispropotionate in size and shape.
To improve the shape of breasts that are sagging or have lost firmness, often used with a breast lift procedure.
To provide the foundation of a breast contour when a breast has been removed or disfigured by surgery to treat breast cancer.
To improve breast appearance or create the appearance of a breast that is missing or disfigured due to trauma, heredity, or congenital abnormalities.
