Breast augmentation is one of the most commonly performed procedures annually by members of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. Women may choose to undergo breast enlargement surgery for various reasons. These personal reasons could be focused around breasts that are perceived to be under developed or because of differences in the sizes of the breasts of from sudden changes after pregnancy or breast feeding. Some women may be happy with their breasts, but just want them made fuller. Often after weight loss, aging, or childbirth, a woman’s breast volume and shape may change. This too can lead a woman to seek a breast augmentation. Breast implant surgery, performed by cosmetic plastic surgeons, is the most popular way to improve breast shape and size. Breast enhancement, using breast implants, can give a woman more proportional shape and may improve self esteem.
Breast Lift or Mastopexy
Breasts often start to sag and droop in response to a number of causes including pregnancy, hereditary traits, and the natural aging process. A breast lift can return a woman’s breasts to their original, perky position. Sagging breasts can be corrected to a more youthful appearance by removing redundant skin and soft tissue. Newer breast lift techniques have resulted in smaller external scars, improved breast shape, and a high degree of patient satisfaction.
Excessively large breasts are not only detrimental to one’s self-esteem but can also be devastating to one’s health and quality of life. Complaints due to excessively large breasts include constant neck and back pain, breast pain, poor posture, skin rashes and irritations, and painful grooves in your shoulders from the weight of your breasts in your bra. The dramatic improvement to a woman’s figure and her quality of life are reasons enough to undergo breast reduction surgery.
