Although there are numerous things that people can do to enhance or optimize their self-confidence, learning to love the way they look is a particularly effective way to realize this objective. In some cases, however, loving your physical appearance is contingent upon your ability to modify it. This is frequently the case for individuals who are dissatisfied with the size of their breasts. If you’ve developed interest in adding volume with a breast augmentation, it’s important that you gain as much information as possible regarding the procedure.
What is Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation is basically the process of using breast implants to increase the size of the patient’s breasts or to restore volume that was lost after a pregnancy or weight reduction. In the event that fat is used for the breast augmentation, the procedure is referred to as “fat transfer breast augmentation.” The clinical term for a breast augmentation is “augmentation mammoplasty.”
What Are The Benefits Of Breast Augmentation?
There are several benefits that can result from breast augmentation. Some of them include:
- Improving the proportions of your figure
- Increasing the fullness of your breasts
- Reconstruction of breasts following injury or mastectomy
- Enhancement of self-confidence/self-image
The Limitations of Breast Augmentation
Although many people assume that breast augmentation can reconcile any and every breast challenge that exists, this is not the case. In fact, there are several substantive limitations to breast augmentation. For example, breast augmentation cannot correct breasts that droop severely. In the event that you are attempting to lift sagging breasts, the best option is typically a breast augmentation performed in conjunction with a breast lift. While the breast lift can oftentimes be performed right along with your breast augmentation, there are some cases in which a separate operation will be required. Doctor Hanemann can help the patient make this important decision.
Good Candidates for Breast Augmentation
Although some people assume that they are mentally and physically fit for a breast augmentation, this is not necessarily the case. In fact, there are specific physiological and psychological conditions that make you an optimal candidate. You should review them before pursuing your breast augmentation. The best candidates for the surgery are individuals who:
- Are physically healthy
- Have realistic expectations about the surgery
- Have fully developed breasts
- Feel that their current breast size is too small
- Are unhappy with the post-pregnancy volume and shape of their breasts
- Are dissatisfied with the fact that the upper dimensions of their breast look “empty”
- Have breasts that appear asymmetrical
Have breasts that have an elongated shape
