Breast augmentation provides options for people who are dissatisfied with their breast size. The procedure uses implants to fulfill the desire for firmer or fuller breasts, as well as to restore volume after weight loss or pregnancy. Implants can also be used in reconstruction procedures after mastectomy.
A breast augmentation procedure:
- Increases breast projection and fullness
- Restores the balance of your figure
- Enhances confidence and self-image
Candidates for this procedure are adults with fully developed breasts who are dissatisfied with the current size, shape or volume of their breasts. Candidates must be physically healthy and must not have medical conditions that would interfere with healing.
The results of breast augmentation should be long lasting, and you may experience a boost in self-confidence while finding it easier to wear certain styles of clothes and swimwear. It’s important to know that breast implants are not permanent and may require follow-up visits, and possibly replacement, with your surgeon during your lifetime.
