5 Reasons to Consider Breast Augmentation

Of the nearly 2 million cosmetic surgeries performed in 2018 alone, breast augmentation topped the charts in popularity. Hundreds of thousands of women have the surgery each year in the United States, for a range of reasons. 

If you’re considering breast augmentation, contact us at Foster Your Beauty. You’re in good hands with renowned double board-certified surgeon Craig M. Foster, MD, who leads our team.  Read on to learn about some of the most common motivators for breast augmentation.

Desire for larger breasts

While there’s no such thing as normal size breasts, many women with especially small breasts choose breast augmentation for greater volume. If you’ve longed for breasts that better fill out a bathing suit or allow for a bit of cleavage, the procedure can help fulfill your desire. 

If you were born predisposed to micromastia, the medical term for having no breast tissue in one or both breasts, or you’re a transgender woman, breast augmentation may help you feel more feminine or authentic. 

Better symmetry or evenness 

Very few people have breasts of identical size. When the difference is fairly extreme or pronounced, though, it can be distracting and interfere with body image and how certain clothes fit you. 

Breast augmentation can help create a more symmetrical look. This can be especially helpful if you have unilateral micromastia, meaning you have breast tissue on only one side of your chest.

Restored shape or size after pregnancy or weight changes

When your body changes significantly due to having a baby or weight changes, your breasts might not appear as you’d like them to. After pregnancy and breastfeeding, for example, your breasts may be larger or saggier than you’d like. Intense weight changes can also cause sagging or a look that seems disproportionate. 

In these cases, breast augmentation can restore a breast physique you’re comfortable with.

Breast implant deflation 

Saline implants commonly leak at some point, if you’ve had them for some time. The implants can also leak due to injury or rupture. While these scenarios aren’t dangerous, they can change your breasts in ways you’re not happy with. Your breasts may appear smaller or misshapen. Many people opt for an additional breast augmentation procedure to correct these issues.

Increased confidence

In virtually all cases, women consider breast augmentation to feel more confident about their appearance. If you tend to feel self-conscious about your breasts, the procedure may be a helpful means of minimizing negative self-talk. 

Research shows that most women are satisfied with their breast augmentation and its confidence-boosting results, as long as the procedure is selected for positive reasons. If you have severely low self-esteem or mental health issues, seek psychological support before considering cosmetic surgery.
