Breast augmentation is one of the more common aesthetic procedures in the USA. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, hundreds of thousands of women have breast implant surgery each year. Of course, all surgeries are different, and patients choose breast augmentation for a variety of reasons. Here are the top 10 reasons patients tell us why they choose breast augmentation:
1. Boost Their Self-Esteem
Women who are not happy with their breasts’ appearance receive a huge increase in confidence following breast augmentation surgery. Breast implants can help create the figure many women desire and provide a boost in cup size as well as self-esteem. It is not a decision to be made lightly, and Dr. Lee can address any questions or concerns during your breast augmentation consultation.
2. They Have Disproportionately Small Breasts
Women’s breast sizes vary broadly, but women who have smaller breasts tend to feel less curvaceous. If a woman wants to feel more feminine, she wants enhancement. After a breast augmentation, many of these women find that they can wear a whole new wardrobe and feel more confident about their figure.
Women who suffer from asymmetrical breasts might feel self-conscious about one of the most intimate parts of their body. With breast augmentation, not only can the breasts be equal in size and shape, but a more natural body shape can emerge.
4. Weight Fluctuation
Many women suffer from weight issues caused by hormonal imbalance and post pregnancy. When a patient achieves an optimal weight, her breast may lose volume and firmness. Breast implants can replace the volume and size, enhance shape, and return to the breasts she enjoyed before.
5. Pregnancy and Breastfeeding
Anyone with children understands that a baby changes everything. Unfortunately, childbearing can change the breasts by diminishing breast size and volume. Breastfeeding also has a negative effect on the mother’s breasts. With breast augmentation, a woman can bring her breasts back to its pre-pregnancy shape and size. She can enjoy fuller, and more shapely breasts after childbearing is over.
6. Breast Restoration After Mastectomy
A mastectomy due to a breast cancer treatment can often change the look of the breasts. Breast implants can help a woman regain a full and healthy figure. Breast reconstruction is a more involved surgery than a breast augmentation, but it still involves the placement of implants. Surgeons also include skin grafting and nipple construction in the procedure.
7. Feeling Sexy is Important For Intimacy
A woman’s sense of allure can be important to them. Some might wonder what other benefits breast augmentation can provide, but the reason is simple – they feel sexier and more intimate. Of course, one should never get breast augmentation purely for others—it should always be done for yourself. Still, some women feel like their desirability is tied to their sense of self. For those women, a breast augmentation can help them look like they’ve always felt.
8. Easier to Shop for Clothes
It seems like most manufacturers have a certain woman in mind when they create clothes. By itself, clothes that fit better are not a great reason to opt for breast implants, but it can weigh in the decision to help improve a woman’s day-to-day life. And often, the benefits of breast augmentation don’t come from the clothes themselves, but in how a woman feels with a new figure that better represents how she feels about herself. A breast augmentation can great improve a woman’s self-image, and the clothes can help show that.
9. Younger Presence
As women age, many experience a loss of volume and perkiness. This trait is accelerated by pregnancy and breastfeeding. A breast augmentation can create some lift for patients, but it’s highly recommended Breast implant placement done concurrently with a breast lift can restore a perky, youthful breast appearance.
