Breast enhancement surgery is incredibly popular today. Many women express an interest in improving the appearance of their breasts. When using the term “breast enhancement,” though, what is usually meant is breast augmentation. For several years, there has been a perception of breast augmentation is a suitable method of fully improving the breasts. It can be, but isn’t always. Here’s why a woman should not enter into her consultation with a plastic surgeon thinking only of her ideal cup size.
The Breasts are Not One-Dimensional
The breasts are a focal point of the body. They deserve the utmost attention when patient and doctor are considering how to add the best possible harmony among all physical features. Breast augmentation surgery on its own is intended for a nice size increase. Placing round or teardrop implants can also perfect the shape of the breasts. The right implant profile can finalize the look by setting breast at the ideal projection. These are excellent improvements. However, it must be known that, if the breasts have become saggy at all, these improvements will be downgraded.
One of the things that breast implant surgery cannot do is lift sagging breasts. Inserting breast implants beneath skin that has lost firmness and tightness can lead to unsatisfactory results. Without proper correction, the larger, rounder breasts may still have nipples that point to the ground. To ensure this does not happen, a skilled surgeon will suggest combining the augmentation procedure with a breast lift.
Combination surgeries offer significant benefits. To lift and enlarge the breasts at the same time means to maximize the final outcome of surgery while simultaneously minimizing costs, risks, and recovery time.
