Breast Augmentation Surgery: Improves Self Image

Posted Dec 06 2010 6:20am

Women with small or underdeveloped breasts can enhance the appearance through breast augmentation surgery. There are a number of reasons why women choose to undergo breast augmentation. Once developed, the breasts may change size or shape due to changes in weight, pregnancy or breast feeding. Yet another reason is that, as you age, the breasts begin to sag and lose their firmness and shape. Breast augmentation surgery improves your self image, contributing to higher self-esteem.


If you have been thinking of a breast augmentation procedure, you probably have more than one choice. Today’s innovative techniques allow surgeons to create a shape that is specific to each client's desires. Breast implants are the popular choice, which brings you the extra size you've been seeking. A number of women have performed breast augmentation using implants and have found the procedure to be comfortable and safe.


Breast Augmentation - Available Breast Implant Options


  • Saline implants
  • Silicone gel implants


Each implant has its own characteristics and lends a different shape and feel to the augmented breast. The incisions can be cleverly made in different areas around the breasts, to minimize scarring, and the implants can be placed underneath either breast tissue or the chest wall muscle. The surgery can last one to two hours and can be performed as an outpatient procedure. Now, many reputable and experienced plastic surgeons are performing one hour breast augmentation, making the process much simpler. Twilight anesthesia is administered for performing the procedure.


Before performing a breast enlargement surgery, the surgeon will take into account three factors:


  • Your body type
  • Your desired cup size
  • Your desired look or shape 


Look for the Best Plastic Surgeon


When you decide to proceed with the procedure, it is important to search and find a leading plastic surgeon in this field. Let the surgeon know your specific needs. Discuss your options with your plastic surgeon and ask about all your concerns regarding the surgery, benefits, the anesthesia, risks, and the recovery period.
