No one’s body is built the same, and it is perfectly normal to consider augmentation if it will improve your self confidence. Breast augmentation is a very common aesthetic surgery performed among women and can address a number of patient concerns such as breast size, proportionality and shape. Breast augmentation can increase or restore your breast size, allowing you to achieve a more proportional and youthful figure.
There are different options for breast augmentation surgery depending on your medical history, body frame and mass and existing breast tissue. During your consult, your surgeon will provide options for your desired implant type (silicone gel or saline), shape and incision points. Your surgeon will help you analyze the best techniques in order to realistically achieve your goals.
Since breast augmentation surgery has long term results, it is highly recommended that you attend periodic exams with a board-certified plastic surgeon to monitor your implants after your surgery.
When to consider breast augmentation:
• To achieve a more proportionate or appealing figure
• Size and shape of breast has been affected due to pregnancy or weight loss
• To restore symmetry due to different breast sizes
Other cosmetic procedures that may be performed with breast augmentation include:
• Masteoxy (breast lift)
• Performed under general anesthesia
• Outpatient procedure
