Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures available, edging out tummy tucks and rhinoplasties year after year. However, there are a lot of misconceptions about breast augmentation that may be holding you back from seeking out the bust you desire. If you’re not happy with the size, shape, volume or placement of your breasts, understanding your options is the first step towards making the right decision for yourself.
Breast Augmentation Covers a Lot of Ground
Breast augmentation is an umbrella term for any procedure designed to enhance your bust. Enhancement, however, doesn’t mean just making breasts larger with implants. While implants are a great tool for adding volume and firmness, ladies wishing for a higher, perkier bosom may decide on a breast lift without implants.
Women who want a better shape to their breasts may decide to have a reconstructive procedure where existing tissue is reformed into a more pleasing shape. Don’t feel as if you’re required to have larger breasts simply to get the results you want. If you have plenty of natural tissue, implants are not a requirement for breast augmentation.
Breast Enlargement or Reduction
If size is your only complaint about your breasts, an enlargement or reduction may be right for you. An enlargement is usually done by inserting implants to give you the fullness you desire. If you feel your breasts are too large, a breast reduction can give you a smaller bust that is firm and more proportioned to your body.
Breast Lift Options
A breast lift places the breasts higher on the chest wall. Not only does this result in better aesthetics, but some women also find that it alleviates back and shoulder pain. A breast lift can be paired with an augmentation or a reduction, depending on the results you would like. If you feel your breasts have sagged or have always been too low on your chest wall, a lift can remedy the issue.
