Why Women Get Breast Enhancements

A woman’s breasts are a sign of feminine beauty, fertility, and the source of much attention thanks to society’s fascination with the female form. There is a deep connection between female image, self-esteem and breast size and shape. In a perfect world, we would all have the ideal size, shape and perkiness we wanted. The world isn’t perfect, but plastic surgery has evolved to offer women several breast enhancement options.

For personal reasons, many women feel as if their breasts are too small, too large, or not perky enough. Everyone wants their body to look its best after all, and for many women, enhancing their breasts helps them feel good about themselves. The costs, recovery time and risks associated with breast surgery vary depending on the procedure, the surgeon, and the patient. Be sure to research your procedure and your surgeon prior to you consultation.

For women with larger breasts, their heavy breasts can be the cause of physical discomfort, medical problems and extreme self-consciousness issues. Breast reduction surgery can help alleviate these issues and lead to a more active, healthy life. On the reverse side of reduction, there are enhancement options including breast augmentation or breast implant surgery, which involves the insertion of implants. Risks involved in saline and silicone implants are hotly debated, but saline is the material of choice when it comes to modern implants.

A new procedure being heralded as a benchmark in implant surgery is the no-scar breast augmentation procedure, also known as TUBA. For women who wish for breast rejuvenation without implants, breast lift surgery, also known as mastopexy, rejuvenates breasts without implants by lifting tissues and fat and repositioning the nipple to create a fuller, taut breast.

In terms of reconstructive breast surgery, an implant or breast enhancing cosmetic treatment will be performed by a plastic surgeon to help return the breast’s form and function to its best aesthetic and working condition. Inverted nipples, a source of embarrassment for some women, can also be corrected with surgery, and results are generally very successful.

In order to best ensure your successful breast surgery or breast enhancement, make sure your surgeon is a board-certified doctor with specific training and qualifications. All of the options for breast plastic surgery can deliver a major boost in self-esteem and image in women.
