01 Feb Benefits of Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation has been one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries for years, and often includes a silicone or saline implant (though not necessarily). And the Newport Beach leader in breast augmentation, John Park MD Plastic Surgery, prioritizes the safety and comfort of patients. The goal is to improve a patient’s overall proportions for a more pleasing silhouette. Breast augmentation can also increase confidence and self-esteem. However, just like every patient is different, every breast augmentation is different and wholly customized.
Goals of A Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation isn’t only used to increase breast size, although that’s a common goal. The procedure can also correct asymmetry of the breasts, make them “perkier” as they begin to sag due to age, weight changes, or childbirth, and can address tuberous breast defects. Many patients opt for breast augmentation when they’ve lost fullness post-breastfeeding, if they’ve lost a considerable amount of fat and feel self-conscious, or to help balance out full hips for the enviable hourglass shape.
Benefits of A Breast Augmentation
Patients of all shapes, sizes, and ages have benefitted from breast augmentation. Those who have lost weight, or lack skin elasticity, may choose simply have a breast lift in order to remove excess skin and decrease sagging. Others may want additional volume added with the benefit of adding an implant to the breast lift which together creates the desired result. No matter what kind of breast augmentation a patient is interested in, the most important factor is who performs the procedure. Only a reputable, experienced breast augmentation surgeon should be trusted with this intimate and important surgery.
Breast augmentation is common in the “mommy makeover,” and is often paired with a tummy tuck and liposuction. Childbirth and breastfeeding are very demanding on the body, and the skin around the décolletage can be over-stretched which leads to sagging and a “deflated” look. Women who may not be finished having biological children sometimes put off breast augmentation surgery because they worry it will interfere with breastfeeding. In the vast majority of cases, this shouldn’t be a concern. Most types of breast augmentation surgeries don’t interfere with future breastfeeding.
