Posted January 10, 2023 in Breast Augmentation
A woman’s breasts go through many changes throughout her life, from puberty to pregnancy and menopause. Weight gain and losing weight can also impact breast appearance. Breast augmentation is one of the most popular plastic surgeries among women, as many view their busts as a sign of femininity that can boost their confidence or cause embarrassment.
Dr. Scott Green is a board-certified plastic surgeon offering silicone and saline breast implants for breast augmentation. These breast implant options are FDA-approved and can give you a fuller breast size and shape. Each breast procedure is customized to the patient’s needs and anatomy. Dr. Green will discuss your options, which include the implant type and placement as well as the incision site, during your consultation.
Women may choose breast augmentation for a variety of reasons, some of which include:
1. Breast Asymmetry
All breasts are different by nature, but some women have considerable size differences. One breast may be an A or B cup while the other is a C or D cup. This discrepancy often manifests in a woman’s late teens and early 20s when the breasts mature fully. Differences in breast size can make finding a bra difficult, and clothing may fit differently.
Breast augmentation can provide an even bust by increasing the size of the smaller breast with a saline or silicone breast implant. Women can feel more comfortable in their clothing and their body with a symmetrical bust.
2. Restore Deflated Breasts
Weight loss, pregnancy, breastfeeding and natural aging can cause the breasts to lose shape and volume. Breast augmentation is often done to restore the breasts’ youthful size and shape. Dr. Green may recommend a breast lift with breast augmentation to elevate the breast tissue to a perkier location. Women may choose to combine breast augmentation with other procedures for a mommy makeover to combat the changes caused by pregnancy.
3. A More Proportionate Body
Some women have naturally small breasts that don’t match their overall figure, which can cause significant body image issues and affect their clothing options. Breast augmentation focuses on achieving a breast size that is proportionate to a woman’s body and gives women a more positive outlook on their breasts and body shape.
