Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure to enhance the size and shape of a woman’s breasts for a number of reasons:
- to enhance the body contour of a woman who, for personal reasons, feels her breast size is too small
- to restore breast volume lost due to weight loss or following pregnancy
- to achieve better symmetry when breasts are moderately disproportionate in size and shape
- to improve the shape of breasts that are sagging or have lost firmness, (often used with a breast lift procedure)
By inserting an implant behind each breast, surgeons are able to increase a woman’s bust line by one or more bra cup sizes.
Breast augmentation can enhance your appearance and your self-confidence. Before you decide to have surgery, think carefully about your expectations and discuss them with your surgeon.
