It’s not surprising.
Breast enhancement options vary and are commonly used to restore your breasts to a more youthful shape, add volume and perkiness to your bosom or to resize the breast to fit your body.
There is no greater feeling than regaining confident in your body… especially during intimacy.
If you’ve been contemplating a breast enhancement for years but haven’t taken the leap, there is no better time than now.
Breast enhancement is safer than ever and in many cases requires minimal recovery.
Make the decision to positively impact your life and confidence by doing something for yourself.
So, are you ready for a breast makeover? Let’s take a look at the various reasons women consider breast enhancement.
Common Reasons Women Choose Breast Enhancement
Disproportionately small breasts
Due to a variety of reasons, some women’s breasts do not fully develop following puberty, causing some women to feel flat chested or have breasts that are smaller than average.
Although breasts vary widely in size, many women with small breasts experience embarrassment and lack of confidence in their figure. A breast enhancement can help restore a woman’s confidence in their body, as well as, a womanly figure.
Often attributed as a result of irregular estrogen levels during puberty, many women may experience one breast that is larger than the other. Otherwise known as disproportionate breast sizes, where one breast may be significantly larger than the other.
Many women who experience asymmetrical breasts choose to undergo a breast enhancement to balance their breast size.
Breast changes during pregnancy
For many women, losing that unwanted baby weight after pregnancy is a good thing… but it can also affect the breasts. New mothers may find that after pregnancy and breast-feeding, their breasts become droopy and lose volume.
With a breast enhancement, mothers can regain their pre-baby body, as well as their pre-baby breasts!
Have you noticed your breasts are less perky or smaller than before you lost weight? After undergoing weight and fat loss, many women experience a loss of volume throughout their chest.
A breast enhancement can help revive and restore what once was, while you still get to love your smaller waist and flattened tummy!
Breasts are too large, causing discomfort
While many women receive a breast enhancement to restore lost volume and reshape their breasts to a more youthful appearance, a breast reduction can also be a solution for breast that are too large.
For many women, big breasts can bring on unwanted health problems, like back injuries, shoulder and neck pain, nerve compression, and just overall discomfort.
Women who choose to undergo a breast reduction typically don’t request small breast. Instead, they want a size that is proportionate to their body and helps them feel more confident, sexier, and attractive!
The reasons above are not the only ones women choose breast enhancement, however, it does cover the majority. Other reasons include deformities caused trauma, mastectomies, surgeries that remove some tissue of the breast, tuberous breast, etc.
Below are the most common options available to you for breast enhancement…
Many women around the country yearn for larger breasts. Whether it is to regain lost volume after pregnancy, restore the breast shape after weight loss, or just to increase their size due to having naturally small breasts.
Breast augmentation with implants or fat transfer are the most popular options for enhancing the look and feel of the breasts, depending on the results desired.
Saline implants are the most popular, however, fat transfer is becoming more popular by women looking for a more natural solution.
There are 3 Breast Augmentation Procedures to consider:
- The implants are incorporated through an incision at the outer edge of the areola
- An incision in the under part of the breast where it meets the chest wall
- An incision in the natural creases of the armpit and not on the breast mound
Prior to your procedure, your plastic surgeon will consider whether submuscular (under the pectoral muscle) or subglandular (under the breast tissue) implant position would be best for your body.
The Breast Implants
Saline breast implants. Filled with sterile salt water, saline breast implants provide an even shape, firmness, and natural volume.
Silicone breast implants. Filled with gel, silicone breast implants typically feel more like natural breast tissue.
Both types of breast implants are approved by the FDA and can be round or teardrop shaped, with a textured or smooth coating.
During your consultation with your plastic surgeon prior to your procedure, you’ll go through the various implant benefits and decide which one would be best for you.
A breast lift, also known as a mastopexy, just might be the perfect solution if you are suffering from a saggy or droopy breast.
A breast lift elevates the breasts by removing extra skin and tightening the surrounding tissue to reshape, add support, and give new life and contour to your chest.
Experiencing discomfort like back and neck pain from breasts that are too big? Finding it hard to feel sexy and confident when your breasts don’t look proportionate to the rest of your body?
A breast reduction might be the best solution to ease the burden of heavy breasts and restore your confidence.
The results of your breast reduction will be immediately visible! Over time, post-surgical swelling will decrease and the incision scars will fade – leaving behind only enhanced, beautiful breasts you’ll no doubt love.
Whether you’re looking to reshape your breasts, restore lost volume, feel sexier in your clothes, or boost your confidence, a breast enhancement might be right for you.
