Breast augmentation is one of the most popular types of plastic surgery among women. With over 300,000 breast augmentation surgeries done per year, it’s apparent that a large number of women want to enhance their shape and achieve a better figure with the help of implants. If done correctly, breast augmentation can create a natural appearance that enhances the patient’s beauty and complements her other assets. Choosing the right size, type, and shape of implant is imperative when it comes to achieving a balanced, beautiful result. Are you considering a breast augmentation? Here is what you need to know about how the procedure can help you achieve a balanced figure.
How Breast Augmentation Corrects Asymmetry
Some women naturally have one breast that is larger than the other. This can make them feel self-conscious as they worry if others notice this ‘lopsidedness’ and they may find they need to pad one side of their bra to create balance. With breast augmentation, this asymmetry can be corrected, and the patient no longer has to take steps to hide her true figure. Some women opt to keep their natural breast size and simply augment one breast to match the other, while others choose to increase the size of both breasts.
Creating Larger Breasts
Women with a larger bottom halves and smaller breasts may feel their figures do not balance out. They may not be able to wear certain types of clothes or feel that they simply don’t look their best. In these cases, a breast augmentation can help the top half match the bottom half, creating an overall balance. Other women have a large frame but small breasts, which can also make them feel unbalanced. A breast augmentation can correct this as well. Those with larger frames often find it very easy to adapt to larger breasts and rarely experience back or shoulder pain due to their new breasts.
Addressing Sagging or Loss of Volume
As women age, their skin and tissue naturally lose volume and sag. While they may have enjoyed a full and balanced figure for many years, they may find that they no longer feel this way due to sagging breasts. A breast augmentation and lift can address these issues and restore breasts to their former condition.
Choosing the Right Shape and Size of Implant
Of course, creating a balanced figure with breast augmentation is heavily dependent on the size and type of implant that is chosen. Choosing too large of implants can actually unbalance the figure further and could lead to pain, discomfort, or a compromise in lifestyle. The type of implant is also important as some shapes look more natural than others.
Shape and Type Considerations
Dr. Grace offers several options when it comes to shape and type of implants. Teardrop and round shapes are available in both silicone and saline varieties. While round shapes create a fuller look, teardrop shapes often look more natural. Silicone implants usually look and feel more natural than saline, though some patients opt for saline implants due to the lower cost or because they are allergic to silicone. Both types of implants have been proven safe and are approved by the FDA.
