Breast augmentation is one of the most common plastic surgeries performed today, in part because of the great satisfaction patients typically receive from the outcome of their procedure. Breast augmentation using implants is typically performed on an outpatient basis and can be fully customized to the unique needs and desired outcome of each woman. If you have considered breast implants in the past, check out these four reasons why breast augmentation might be the right choice for you. Enhanced Size and Shape Breast implants can improve both the size and shape of the breasts. In addition to adding fullness and cleavage to the chest area, this procedure can improve the projection of the breasts to give you a more youthful contour overall. If you suffer from drooping, sagging breasts due to breastfeeding or aging, a breast lift can be combined with the breast augmentation procedure to produce even more dramatic results. Improved Symmetry Nearly every woman has one breast that is slightly larger than the other. However, the majority have differences so small, it is impossible to notice. For those that have a larger discrepancy in breast size or shape, the problem can be embarrassing and make it difficult to find clothing that fits properly. Breast augmentation can be performed on one or both breasts to create a proportionate, balanced body profile, even while improving the size and shape of the breasts. Better Clothing Fit Small breasts can make it difficult to find dresses and bathing suits that fit properly. Even when the clothing fits, self-consciousness about how you look in low-cut tops or swimsuits might keep you from wearing these items with confidence. Breast augmentation provides the additional size you need to fill out your favorite fashions, so you can wear them with confidence and pride. Increased Self Confidence A 2013 prospective outcome study found 98 percent of women that underwent breast augmentation said the procedure met or exceeded their expectations. The study, which was published in the journal Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, found that 85 percent rated the new size of their breasts as “just right,” and 92 percent said their self-esteem increased as a result of their procedure. Nearly two-thirds reported their quality of life increased after surgery. There are many good reasons to consider breast augmentation surgery. However the decision to move forward with any plastic surgery procedure is a highly personal one that should be made between a woman and her doctor.
