Many people associate supple, shapely breasts with a youthful, feminine figure. But whether it be due to genetics, aging, pregnancy, or a medical condition, it’s prevalent for women to be unsatisfied with the size, shape, or symmetry of their breasts. Breast augmentation may be ideal if you want to enhance your breasts and achieve a more voluptuous and proportionate figure.
What Is Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation, or augmentation mammoplasty, is a cosmetic surgery used to increase the size of the breasts. The procedure, which improves the shape and symmetry of the breasts, can also be used to restore lost volume to breasts affected by several conditions.
How Does Breast Augmentation Work?
There are two primary types of breast augmentation: breast implants and fat transfer breast augmentation. Breast implants are the more popular option of the two. You can typically choose silicone or saline breast implants, which are carefully inserted either beneath the chest muscles or beneath the breast tissue to increase the size and adjust the shape of the breasts.
Fat transfer breast augmentation is usually used for patients who desire only a small increase in breast size. These breast augmentations are performed by removing fat from a separate part of the body and injecting it into the breasts.
Benefits of Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation can offer the following benefits to those who are unhappy with the appearance of their breasts:
- Larger, more shapely breasts
- A more curvaceous figure
- Increased wardrobe options
- Improved self-confidence
- Improved breast symmetry
- Improved body proportions
- Long-lasting results
Am I a Candidate for Breast Augmentation?
If you want to achieve more prominent, shapely breasts, you may be a candidate for breast augmentation. Ideal candidates for the surgery should meet these requirements:
- Have realistic expectations
- Be in good physical health
- Have fully developed breasts
- Not be pregnant or breastfeeding
- Have the desire to increase or restore the size of your breasts
How Long Will It Take To See Results After Breast Augmentation?
Although the effects of your breast augmentation may be visible immediately after the procedure, the final results will appear gradually. It can take a few weeks to a few months for the swelling to fade entirely and for the implants to settle correctly. Once your final results are visible, they should remain for at least 10 to 20 years before an additional procedure may be needed.
