Posted Apr 03 2013 3:27am
Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure provided to enhance the volume of a woman’s breasts and make them look more attractive. The surgery ensures a much improved bust line and overall appearance. Before discussing the ideal candidate for this procedure, let us look at the reasons why women go for this surgery, and what the breast enhancement procedure involves.
The Common Reasons Why Women Go for Breast Surgery
  • To enhance small breasts or to balance the size of the breasts
  • Reconstruction after mastectomy
  • To correct the changes in the size of the breasts after massive weight loss
There are two types of breast implants saline and silicone gel filled implants that are used for breast augmentation surgery. Saline-filled implants are silicone shells filled with saline water. Silicone breast implants have a more natural feel and are therefore more popular than the saline ones.
Before going for the surgery it is important to consult a skilled and professional plastic surgeon. Board certified surgeons are experienced and reliable, and they provide focused treatment ensuring the best aesthetic results. Once you have been given anesthesia, the doctor will make an incision either underneath your breast, in the armpit or around the areola through which the implants are inserted.
It is very important to maintain realistic expectations about the surgery and know what the surgery can accomplish. Obtain all the necessary information about the surgery from your plastic surgeon that will help you make a wise decision for yourself.

  • Good physical health
  • Psychological stability
