One of the most commonly seen benefits of breast enlargement, which is also called breast augmentation, is an improved self-confidence. Perhaps this is due to the enhancement of the woman’s appearance. It may be a result of finally being able to fit properly into the clothing that she would like to wear. In some cases, a woman may regain her voluptuous figure, even out developmental asymmetries, or enhance the volume that she lost with age or pregnancy. Regardless of the motivation, many women are choosing to undergo breast enlargement and are making it one of the most frequently performed cosmetic surgeries in the United States.
The surgery for breast augmentation requires either a fat transfer or inserting an implant (silicone gel or saline) through a small incision and positioning it either behind the chest muscle or beneath the breast tissue itself. The actual approach and placement of the implant or fat is customized according to each woman’s skin, the amount of native breast tissue, her desired results, the presence of any developmental anomalies, and other individual characteristics. If needed, a breast lift can be performed at the same time to enhance the final result.
