With the wonders of plastic surgery, breast augmentation can solve a host of perceived problems that women find with the shape, size, and weight of their natural breasts. Surgical techniques can enhance this area of the body through adding material that will increase the size and alter the shape of a woman’s current breasts. An experienced plastic surgeon will work to achieve a result that is both realistic and pleasing to the patient.
Most women walk into a plastic surgeon’s office with an ideal silhouette in mind. But, it may or may not be realistic for their body. The plastic surgeon will take this desired silhouette as a starting point and discuss the advantages and disadvantages associated with the size and shape that the woman has chosen. Once an ideal is reached, the various techniques that can be used to reach the intended goal will be discussed.
What Breast Augmentation Surgery Can Accomplish
Each woman is endowed with breasts, but many are unsatisfied with their current size and shape for a variety of reasons. Some feel they’ve always had breasts that were too small to be attractive. Others have varying sizes, where one side is larger than the other. Pregnancy and breastfeeding take a toll on a woman’s breasts, often stretching them out and causing a sagging appearance which can be corrected by both augmentation and a lift, which is commonly known as a mommy makeover. Significant weight loss is another factor that can reduce the breasts size and cause sagging. Those who have suffered through breast cancer may have lost one or both in a mastectomy surgery. Reconstructive surgery often takes several steps in order to achieve an ideal result.
What a Breast Augmentation Cannot Accomplish
Larger breasts are not the solution to a bad relationship! Women can always find something wrong with their bodies, since different individuals place emphasis on different parts of the body. A woman should never feel pressured into a surgical procedure simply because her partner is dissatisfied with her body.
