Could breast augmentation be right for you? - Larry Weinstein MD FACS

Could breast augmentation be right for you?


If you are unhappy with the size, shape or proportions of your breast, you may have wondered if breast augmentation would be right for you. It is one of the most popular cosmetic surgical procedures, with more than 300,000 surgeries performed in the United States each year.

Here are some of the many reasons why women choose to get breast implants.

  1. You have abnormally small breasts. Women who have the condition micromastia have disproportionately small breasts because they didn’t develop as expected during puberty. They may feel self-conscious about their disproportionate size. If you have micromastia, breast implants can give you a boost in confidence.
  2. Your breasts are different sizes. If one breast is larger than the other, more than likely hormones, growth spurts during puberty and other factors may be behind asymmetrical breasts. Breast implants can help even out the look and give you more confidence.
  3. Your breasts changed during pregnancy. Pregnancy and breastfeeding can do a number to a woman’s body. Many women find that breasts will droop or sag after pregnancy and nursing. Breast implants can help a woman get her pre-pregnancy breasts back. This surgery is often performed in combination with other body-contouring procedures called a “mommy makeover” to help women get their pre-pregnancy body back.
  4. You’ve lost a significant amount of weight. After pregnancy or unrelated weight loss, women find their breasts have lost their volume, so breast implants give them the size and shape they desire with their new, slimmer curves.
  5. You’ve had breast cancer surgery. If you’ve had a mastectomy, breast reconstruction is often part of breast cancer treatment. This helps women look and feel like they did prior to mastectomy surgery.
  6. You want to boost your self-esteem. Breast augmentation surgery has high patient satisfaction, as having larger, fuller breasts helps women feel more attractive and confident.
