According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, breast augmentation is the most popular elective cosmetic procedure in the United States and has been for at least the last five years. Augmentation is a blanket word, including reductions, lifts, reconstruction and enhancements. If you feel as if your breasts are too small, breast implants are a long-term solution you may want to consider. Understanding this procedure is integral to making an informed decision about whether or not you want to pursue breast augmentation.
Size Choice Variety is a Reality
Glossy magazines and flashy commercials may have you believe that breast implants are used only to give women enormous, in-your-face breasts. In reality, however, there are many women walking around who have implants and you’d never know. Implants can be as small as a single cup size. When considering how large you want your breasts to be, our surgeon will absolutely work with you to meet your goals. If you want a slight enhancement or a big change, the choice is yours. Don’t be scared off by believing the end result will be too large. Subtlety is very much considered and implemented in cosmetic surgery.
The Benefits of Breast Implants
A larger bust can give you more confidence in the professional, personal and intimate aspects of your life. Implants can also be used to correct breast asymmetry, where one breast is notably larger than the other. Those who suffer from asymmetry often note that back and shoulder pain caused by the imbalance is resolved by having an implant inserted into the smaller breast. Breast implants can also be used to create a sense of balance in your figure. Women who have thick thighs and a generous backside but a small chest may desire more balance between the upper and lower physique.
Final Considerations Before Surgery
Deciding when to have implants placed is almost as important as deciding on what size you would ultimately want to have. Before consenting to surgery, you should be in good general health. Generally speaking, the healthier a person is before surgery, the happier that person will be with the results.
