5 common reasons women get breast augmentation

Larry Weinstein MD FACSEveryone who has ever considered breast augmentation has her own deeply personal reasons for doing so. Research shows that women often experience a huge boost in confidence following the life-changing procedure. With more than 300,000 surgeries performed in the United States each year, breast augmentation surgery continues to be the top cosmetic procedure.

Here are some common reasons why women go under the knife for larger, fuller breasts:

  1. You’ve lost a lot of weight or just finished nursing. Breasts often droop or get smaller after pregnancy and nursing or after you’ve lost significant weight not related to childbirth. Breast augmentation with or without lift would be ideal to boost shape and volume and help you achieve the look you desire.
  2. Your breasts aren’t the same size. So many things can affect breast symmetry. Trauma, puberty and hormonal changes can affect the size or volume of a woman’s breasts, causing one to be larger than the other.
  3. You believe your breasts are too small. Macromastia describes the post-pubertal underdevelopment of a woman’s breast tissue. There’s no true definition of this medical condition as the definition of “small” varies with each person. Breast implants can help improve confidence and self-image for women who perceive their breasts to be too small.
  4. You’ve had mastectomy surgery. As part of their cancer treatment, many women opt for breast reconstruction surgery following a mastectomy or double mastectomy. This is typically a two-stage surgery. During the first procedure, the surgeon places a tissue expander under the skin and slowly fills it with saline over time to help ready the chest tissue for the implant several months after the mastectomy, which is the second stage of reconstruction surgery.
  5. You want to look younger. With age often comes sagging, and breasts appear smaller. Breast augmentation with a lift can help give you a more youthful look.

Breast augmentation surgery can help you gain more confidence and boost self-esteem. But it’s important to do your research and decide to do this surgery for you – no one else.
