There’s no question that a large number of breast augmentation patients choose the surgery simply to enhance the size and overall appearance of their breast. Getting larger breasts isn’t the only reason for undergoing a breast augmentation, however. From boosting your confidence levels to restoring a more feminine silhouette after having children, the motivations for breast augmentation surgery are both diverse and personal. At Plastic Surgery Group of Atlanta, plastic surgeons, Dr. John P. Connors and Dr. Alexandra Hart are proud to help women achieve their unique goals through a wide range of breast enhancement procedures and techniques, including breast augmentation. Below, you’ll become familiar with four reasons why countless women each year turn to breast augmentation surgery in Atlanta, GA, and you’ll learn how this life-changing procedure may also benefit you.
What do I need to know before getting breast implants?
Before even considering breast augmentation surgery, patients should have at least a basic understanding of what to expect before, during, and after the procedure, what options they have for breast implants, and other breast augmentation fundamentals.
Generally speaking, breast augmentation is usually performed using either saline or silicone breast implants. In addition to the type of breast implant that will be placed, patients will also consult with their surgeon on breast implant placement, incision type, whether or not to combine breast augmentation with a lift, and more. Using the revolutionary Vectra 3D Imaging simulation system, Drs. Connors and Hart can help patients better visualize how their breast implant selections may look on their bodies.
Finally, Dr. Connor and Dr. Hart will take ample time during your initial consultation to discuss the details of your surgery and recovery period, ensuring you are well-informed and can prepare accordingly.
Is breast augmentation right for me?
Ultimately, choosing to get breast implants is a personal decision, though there are a few physical and lifestyle factors that may mean certain women would be likely to benefit from the procedure. Four of the most common and compelling reasons to consider breast augmentation surgery in Atlanta, GA include:
1. To reverse the side effects of pregnancy or breastfeeding
When it comes to childbearing, fewer features undergo as significant of a physical change as the breasts. Weight gain during pregnancy, breast size fluctuation during breastfeeding, and other factors can dramatically affect the overall appearance of the breasts. For many women, breast augmentation after pregnancy and/or breastfeeding offers the welcome opportunity to restore lost breast volume and achieve a more feminine, full look once again.
2. To enhance naturally small breasts
Women who are naturally flat-chested may be able to achieve the illusion of larger, fuller breasts through push-up bras or bra inserts. However, the only true way to increase breast size and volume is with breast augmentation, leading many women with small breasts to choose cosmetic surgery.
3. To correct a breast abnormality
In some cases, breast augmentation surgery is performed to correct various deformities, abnormalities, or asymmetries, which may be the result of:
- Natural/genetic defect
- Breast cancer surgery
- Previously botched surgery
4. To boost self-esteem
For many women, the size and shape of their breasts are closely tied to their self-image, self-esteem, and senses of femininity and desirability. With breast augmentation surgery, patients often report feeling more self-confident virtually overnight, which can have fantastic effects on their relationships, careers, and more.
