Four Reasons to Consider Breast Augmentation Surgery
For most patients, undergoing breast augmentation surgery is about more than simply increasing their breast size. While this is certainly a primary goal of breast augmentation surgery, it is not the only reason a woman may choose to get breast implants. At Watt Plastic Surgery & Med Spa, premier Tampa, FL plastic surgeon Dr. Tony Watt believes that every woman deserves to look and feel her best and understands that each patient’s reasons for having breast augmentation surgery are unique. In this blog, we’ll explore four of the most popular motivations for undergoing breast augmentation surgery and how the procedure may be life-changing for you, too.
The basics of breast augmentation
First, it is helpful to understand a little bit about how breast augmentation surgery works. Following an initial consultation and preoperative appointments, during which Dr. Watt will work closely with you to select the most appropriate size, shape, and type of breast implant for your body and goals, your surgery will be scheduled. Breast augmentation is performed using general anesthesia and usually takes about 2 – 3 hours to complete. Dr. Watt will begin by creating an incision, usually in the inframammary crease below the breast, through which the implant will be inserted into the breast pocket. Once Dr. Watt has placed both implants and confirmed optimal size, symmetry, and position, the incisions will be closed with sutures. As an alternative to synthetic breast implants, some women choose to add volume to their breasts with a fat transfer procedure.
Why should I get breast implants?
Deciding to have breast augmentation surgery is a personal choice that is unique to each individual patient. Four common reasons why many women choose to get breast implants are:
1. To restore lost volume
Age, weight loss, pregnancy, breastfeeding, and other life events can take a major toll on the volume, size, and other aspects of the breasts, leading many women to choose breast augmentation surgery to restore a fuller, more youthful look.
2. To look and feel more feminine
Having full, perky breasts is classically associated with beauty, desirability, and femininity. For women who have experienced changes to their breasts over time or simply have naturally small breasts, a breast augmentation can help to create a more feminine, sexier silhouette.
3. To boost their confidence
Another popular reason for getting breast implants is to feel more confident about your body. Some women are self-conscious about their small or deflated breasts, which may be out of proportion compared to the rest of their frames. With breast augmentation, patients often report feeling much more confident and comfortable about their overall appearance.
4. To feel whole again
Women who undergo mastectomy or lumpectomy for breast cancer often choose to have breast reconstruction with implants in order to restore a more natural figure and feel whole and feminine once again.
Again, choosing to have cosmetic surgery of any kind — and particularly something as intimate and personal as breast enhancement surgery — is a personal decision, but we are here to help you understand your options and make a choice that you feel confident about.
