Is Breast Augmentation Right for Me?

Posted May 14, 2014 in Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is the most popular and well-researched cosmetic procedure in existence. Last year, over 290,000 procedures were performed in the United States alone. Women who are unhappy with the shape or size of their breasts are the primary candidates for this procedure, but women who need breast asymmetry correction, breast reconstruction, and breast implant revision can also benefit from augmentation with implants.

Benefits of Breast Augmentation

  • Larger breasts
  • Improved breast shape
  • Correction of asymmetry
  • Increased confidence

Best Candidates for Breast Augmentation

The main goal of breast augmentation is to enlarge the breasts, so most adult women who wish to increase their breast size easily qualify for this procedure. Patients who have one breast that is smaller than the other (asymmetry) are also excellent candidates for breast augmentation. Those who have sagging breasts and excess breast skin will not experience the best results with breast augmentation alone. These patients likely need a breast lift instead of or in addition to a breast augmentation to remove excess skin and lift the breasts to a higher position.

Options for Breast Augmentation

There are so many options available for this procedure that virtually anyone can get the customized look they want. If you desire a more natural breast appearance, you might choose an anatomically shaped implant or a smaller-sized implant. If larger, more voluptuous breasts with a round appearance are more appealing, a larger-sized round implant will give you the added volume toward the top of the breast. Both saline and silicone gel implants are available in many sizes and profiles. Inserting the implant above or below the muscle will also influence the way your breasts look after the procedure.
