Benefits Of A Breast Augmentation

The aesthetic and psychological benefits of breast augmentation are no secret. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) reports that breast augmentation surgery was performed 290,000 times in a recent year. Women choose to have this cosmetic surgery for a number of reasons. The following are among the most common reasons:

BREASTS TOO SMALL.

In some cases, a woman’s breasts fail to develop after puberty. This condition is not uncommon. Many women are unhappy with the size of their breasts and feel that having larger breasts would enhance their overall appearance and sensuality. Breasts that are too small in proportion to the rest of the body limit clothing choices, detract from the symmetry of the silhouette, and affect a woman’s confidence and sense of feminine appeal. This aesthetic problem can be corrected with breast augmentation to enhance the size and shape of the breasts for a more attractive body contour.

BOOST IN SELF-ESTEEM.

Women who are unhappy with body shape typically experience a tremendous boost in self-confidence after a breast augmentation in Baltimore. Full, shapely breasts do more than enhance a woman’s appearance; self-esteem and self-confidence can skyrocket. As reported by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), researchers in a study published in the society’s official medical journal found that 92% of the women involved reported they experienced improved self-esteem after breast augmentation surgery.

BREAST ASYMMETRY.

YFor some women, one breast develops differently than the other. Many women have one breast larger than the other, with greater or lesser degrees of asymmetry. This can be a concerning issue when the difference in size is noticeable. Breast asymmetry, when it is significant, can be a real problem, and quite likely a source of embarrassment. It can make a women feel self-conscious in revealing clothing or in intimate situations. Breast augmentation can correct the problem by increasing the size of the smaller breast to create a beautiful, balanced symmetry.

SIGNIFICANT WEIGHT LOSS.

If you are carrying extra weight, losing the excess is one of the best things you can do for both your health – and your appearance. Unfortunately, when you lose a significant amount of weight, you also lose it in the breasts. In fact, for many women, the breasts are the first area of the body to shrink. After working hard to reach your ideal weight, it may not seem like a reward to have your “assets” looking droopy and deflated. Dr. Brent Birely performs augmentation mammaplasty in Maryland with precision and skill to restore the fullness and shape of your breasts after a significant weight loss.

PREGNANCY AND BREASTFEEDING.

Becoming a mother is an amazing experience that most mothers wouldn’t trade for the world. It is generally agreed that breastfeeding gives an infant the best possible start for a healthier life. Sadly, many women discover when childbirth and breastfeeding are done, once perky breasts have lost volume and appear flatter and often droop and sag. Weight gain during pregnancy and the flow of milk when a mother is nursing stretches the skin and tissues of the breasts. When the milk-producing structures shrink to their pre-pregnancy size, some women are left breasts that appear stretched out, deflated appearance. Breast augmentation in Baltimore can provide a solution to this cosmetic problem.

EFFECTS OF AGING.

Like the rest of the body, time can take a heavy toll on the breasts. As we age, the tissues and structures begin to change due to a decline in reproductive hormone levels. Reduction in estrogen levels can cause the skin and connective tissues of the breasts to lose the elasticity and supple quality of youth. The breasts lose firmness and fullness, and can begin to develop a loose, stretched appearance. Dense breast tissue is replaced with fatty tissue as we grow older. Many older women find that their cup size is not as large as it was in their younger days.

BETTER FITTING CLOTHES.

Most brands of women’s clothing have been designed to fit a person who wears a C cup bra. A woman who is an A or B cup may have a challenge finding clothes to fit. Having smaller breasts can limit your fashion choices, or rule out lower-cut styles designed to reveal cleavage. Women want breast augmentation for many personal reasons. The study published by ASPS found that 98% of women who have this procedure were very satisfied with their results. Dr. Brent Birely is a board-certified plastic surgeon with more than 20 years of experience who performs breast augmentation in Baltimore with an uncommon level of artistry and skill.
