There are several ways in which breast augmentation surgery can change your life for the better. However, there are two things that we know breast implants cannot do, and you need to know them to.
Breast Augmentation will Not Lift your Breasts
This is a common misconception about breast implants. Because the size and shape of breasts are changed with the insertion of a well-proportioned implant, whether saline or silicone, teardrop or round, the positioning of the breasts on the frame will not change much as a result. If skin and tissue has lost its resiliency due to weight loss, motherhood, or the mere effect of gravity, the best way to restore a more youthful, lifted appearance is with mastopexy, or breast lift surgery.
Breast Augmentation can Boost, but not Give, Self Esteem
Appearance is only one of several factors that translates into a positive self-image. If you rely solely on your physical beauty to feel worthwhile, you cannot expect to feel better after breast augmentation surgery. The enhancement of the breasts can boost feelings of confidence when self-worth is healthy, but cannot make you feel good about yourself.
The Right Reasons for Breast Augmentation
While improved self-esteem can be a nice side-effect of breast augmentation, it should not be the reason for seeking surgery. Some of the reasons enhancement may be performed include:
- Asymmetry, or different sized breasts
- Breasts are too small on your frame
- Breasts have lost volume after pregnancy or with age
Breast augmentation surgery is an important decision. To gain the greatest satisfaction from your procedure, you must know what to expect, and what not to. For the details you need about breast implant surgery, call our Miami office at 305-669-0184.
