Top Reasons for Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation

There is a range of reasons that people decide to get breast augmentation surgery. Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries in America.

In 2013, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons estimated that 300,000 women underwent breast implant procedures, and this number is rising every year. For each of these cases, women choose the procedure for their own unique reasons.

Before undergoing breast augmentation surgery, it is important that your intentions are healthy. For one, make sure that you’re getting breast implants for yourself, and not because anyone else is urging you to do so.

Boost Your Self-esteem

Women who are unhappy with their figure often turn to plastic surgery, especially breast augmentation surgery, to boost their self-esteem. One study by the University of Florida wanted to test the theory of increased self-esteem from breast implants, so they surveyed 84 breast augmentation patients. The results of the study found that the patient’s self-esteem levels rose about 20-24% years after breast implant surgery.

Improve Abnormally Small Breasts

Micromastia is a medical abnormality, in which women’s breasts do not develop after puberty. However, there is no legitimate diagnosis for micromastia, since breast sizes range so widely. In most cases, micromastia is a self-perception, in which a woman compares their breast size to average breast sizes, feeling theirs are inadequately sized. Breast implants can treat micromastia, giving you a more feminine figure and more self-confidence.

Improve Asymmetrical Breasts

A lot of women have asymmetrical breasts, usually as a result of micromastia or irregular estrogen levels. Asymmetrical breasts are not uncommon at all. However, they can have a big impact on a woman’s figure and self-esteem. A lot of patients choose breast augmentation as a way to make their appearance more even.

Breast Implants Can Improve Effects from Weight Loss

After losing a significant amount of weight, women will experience that their breasts appear saggy, losing their firm shape. Breast augmentation is an easy way for women to have larger, perkier breasts, while remaining healthy and skinnier from the weight loss.

Improving Breast Shape After Pregnancy

After losing the excess weight from having a baby and breastfeeding, women often experience smaller, droopy breasts. With breast augmentation surgery, you are able to regain your body, as it was before having a baby. Even after becoming pregnant again, you will still be able to breastfeed, and your breast implants will not affect your baby’s growth or development.

Restore Your Breasts After a Mastectomy

In some traumatic experiences, like cancer, women are forced to have a mastectomy, in which cases the breasts are surgically removed. Breast reconstruction is sometimes performed on women who want to regain their figure after a mastectomy. Similar to a breast augmentation, breast reconstructions use implants to replace the fullness of the breasts, along with skin grafts and sometimes with nipple reconstruction.

Breast Implants Can Improve Your Libido

When women are unhappy with their bodies, their libidos can sometimes suffer. One study by a Brazilian plastic surgeon, Paulo Guimaros, found that women with breast implants experienced a healthier sexual well-being after breast implant surgery.

Clothes Will Fit Better After Breast Augmentation

Most women’s sizes are made to fit a size C breast cup. Fashion might seem like a silly reason to get breast implants. However, the way you dress can profoundly impact your overall self-esteem and happiness. Breast augmentation surgery can give you the freedom to wear clothes that are tailored to your style, helping you feel more like yourself and improving your overall quality of life. Not to mention, they can help your swim suits fit better in the summertime.

Breast Implants Can Help You Look Younger

As women age, they often find that gravity can take its toll on their breasts, causing them to sag and shrink. Breast implants, along with breast lifts, can restore your figure back to its youthful and vivacious state.

Even if you want breast augmentation surgery for reasons other than those listed above, it is important to remember that a decision to get breast implants should be your own personal decision. It is something that requires careful consideration, and should not be done on a whim. Make sure that your reasons for getting breast implants are your own, and not something that you are doing to make someone else happy.
