If you aren’t satisfied with your breasts' size, shape, or symmetry, you’re far from alone. These are feelings that numerous women of all ages deal with, and many of them spend years feeling self-conscious and unattractive. However, it doesn’t necessarily need to be that way. If you’d like to increase your breast size and achieve a more voluptuous figure, breast augmentation could be the right choice.
What Is Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a popular surgical procedure to increase breast size and shapeliness. The surgery is most commonly performed to add volume to smaller breasts or increase breast symmetry, but it’s also used to restore breasts that have been affected by various conditions.
How Does Breast Augmentation Work?
Breast augmentation is typically achieved by inserting breast implants either under the breast tissue or the chest muscles. There are several popular breast implant options, the most common of which are silicone and saline implants. Alternatively, some breast augmentations are performed using fat transfer, in which fat is taken from a different body area and injected into the breasts. Fat transfer breast augmentation is primarily used for women who desire only a small increase in breast size.
Benefits of Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation can provide several significant benefits if you’re unsatisfied with the appearance of your breasts:
- Larger, natural-looking breasts
Improved breast shape and symmetry
- A more curvaceous and youthful figure
- Increased self-confidence
- New fashion possibilities
- Long-lasting results
- Improved body proportions
- Contours the body after weight loss, aging, or pregnancy
What Should I Expect During the Surgery?
If you’re interested in breast augmentation, the first step in the process will be to have a consultation with Dr. Shafa. This consultation will allow the doctor to understand exactly what you hope to achieve with the procedure. Dr. Shafa will also have questions about your medical history and any medications you’re taking. Plus, the meeting will allow you to ask Dr. Shafa any questions you have and voice any concerns or reservations about the surgery.
When the day of your breast augmentation surgery arrives, it will begin with you being administered general anesthesia. Dr. Shafa will then strategically make the necessary incisions in areas where scarring will be minimized. Next, he will carefully insert your personalized breast implants. Once the implants have been placed, Dr. Shafa will close your incisions to finish the procedure. Usually, the surgery takes between one and two hours to complete.
