When most people think of plastic surgery, breast augmentation immediately comes to mind. Why? Because Breast augmentations have continued to remain one of the most popular types of plastic surgery that patients elect to have. During your breast augmentation, we place a breast implant above or below the pectoral muscle to help enhance the overall appearance of your breasts. There are many options and there is a lot of information available, but is it the right procedure for you? A full consultation will help you figure that out for sure, but in this blog post we will go over a few of the more common reasons.
Your Breasts Used To Be larger
Breasts can naturally lose their volume for a variety of reasons including pregnancy, weight loss, breastfeeding, or hormonal changes. If you used to have larger breasts but have since lost the volume in them, a breast augmentation can immediately increase the size and improve the shape of your breasts and restore their volume.
You are Self Conscious About Your Breasts
Some women like having small breasts and others feel self-conscious about the smallness of theirs. If you are someone who always wished their breasts were fuller or larger, then you may be the perfect candidate for an augmentation and a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon is a great way to find out more.
You Have Asymmetrical Breasts
Almost every woman has some breast asymmetry. A small number of women have a significant difference. If you have one breast that’s noticeably larger than the other one than we can use implants to make your breasts more symmetrical. Sometimes other procedures are needed too. Depending on your goals and type of asymmetry, we can use a variety of techniques, including adding different sized implants to both of your breasts to make them the same size.
