Breast augmentation was one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in 2016, with nearly 300,000 procedures having been performed in the last year.
Here are just some of the reasons why breast augmentation surgery continues to be such a common procedure, and why you might consider getting implants yourself.
1. Breast Implants Boost Your Self-Esteem
Because women’s breasts are often linked with femininity and can play a significant role in a woman’s body image, breast implants have been shown to help many women improve their self-esteem.
Whether your breasts never fully developed or just don’t seem to be in proportion with the rest of your body, breast enhancement surgery can help to give you a more desirable shape and, in turn, give you a renewed sense of self-confidence and a more positive body image.
Of course, breast implants can’t solve underlying psychological issues, so be sure you’re opting in for the right reasons before you schedule your procedure.
2. Breast Implants Address Asymmetry
If correcting asymmetry is the primary goal of your breast enhancement, be sure to discuss this with Dr. Andan during your consultation.
While it’s rare for any two breasts to be exactly the same shape and size, many women are bothered by very noticeable asymmetry in their breasts.
This is another common reason for breast augmentation surgery, as Dr. Andan can use implants to create a more even and balanced look.
3. Breast Augmentation Helps You Look and Feel Younger
The natural aging process, combined with the effects of gravity, can leave your breasts looking and feeling a little droopy. In this case, Dr. Andan will likely recommend combining breast implants with a breast lift to improve the position of your breasts while also giving you a subtle boost of volume.
