10 Reasons to Consider Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation is consistently the most popular cosmetic procedure performed each year. There are a lot of reasons that women consider breast augmentation, and it can be helpful to look at the benefits as you schedule your consultation with your plastic surgeon. Here are ten reasons to consider this option and how it can help.
1. It Enhances Body Proportion
At its most basic, good body proportion is about the balance of the hips to the upper torso. If you have smaller breasts and broad hips, your figure can look unbalanced. A breast augmentation can achieve fuller breasts for an hourglass look that matches your lower body.
2. It Boosts Self-Confidence
The American Society of Plastic Surgeons reports that breast augmentation is the most sought-after cosmetic surgery. It improves body image, sexual satisfaction, and self-confidence. Many women tend to feel more attractive after undergoing augmentation because they feel better about the way their body looks.
3. It Corrects Breast Asymmetry
Breast asymmetry occurs when one breast has a different volume, cup size, or position. It’s actually extremely common for women to have asymmetrical breasts, but it affects some women more visibly than others. In this case, using one or two implants can help bring the breasts into better proportion to each other.
4. It Accentuates Your Curves
With a more balanced profile and more visual weight in the upper body, breast augmentation can help accentuate the curves of the waist and hips. Many women enjoy a more feminine and curvy look after breast augmentation.
5. It Aids Breast Reconstruction After a Mastectomy
A mastectomy procedure involves partial or complete removal of one or both breasts. It gets rid of cancerous cells and prevents further spread to the rest of the body. After a mastectomy, many women opt for reconstruction of the breasts with implants to restore their confidence in their body.
6. It Restores Postpartum Symptoms
The breasts naturally adjust to the physiological changes that happen during pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding. For many women, having children can mean deflated or sagging breasts as a result of hormone changes. Breast implants can restore the breasts, especially when paired with a breast lift procedure.
7. It Restores Volume After Weight Loss
If you’ve lost a large amount of weight, it’s common to be left with sagging and stretched breasts. This is usually a result of losing fat in the breasts as well as the rest of the body. A breast augmentation can help restore some volume for a more balanced look, along with a breast lift to restore the breasts into a higher position.
8. It Accentuates a Sexy Look
If your breasts are naturally small or don’t produce much cleavage with your favorite tops, breast implants can help. Many women feel sexier and more attractive with better-proportioned breasts that can be achieved with implants.
9. It Helps Regain Your Youthful Curves
When you’re young, your breasts are often in a more upright and higher position. Breast augmentation can restore them to a better position with more projection, especially when paired with a breast lift.
10. It Creates Better Fitting Clothes
Most designers make clothes that fit average-sized breasts. It can be frustrating when your breasts don’t seem to fill out your favorite tops or dresses, meaning breast augmentation can be a great way to boost your outfits.
