When women considering breast augmentation at our Eugene, OR, practice come in for consultations, they often bring in “wish” photos to help communicate how they want to look after surgery. These pictures usually focus on breast size, which is understandable. But getting breast implants offers more benefits than boosting a person’s cup size.
The best breast augmentation results can enhance a patient’s overall appearance because her body’s features are harmonious. In this blog post, we’ll explain 4 other ways breast augmentation can enhance your appearance.
- Creating proportion: Other words besides size that describe a successful breast augmentation’s results include balance and proportion. Focusing only on adding volume can produce outcomes that don’t look natural. Implant size, profile, and placement are all key to enhancing the breasts in harmony with the rest of a patient’s body.
- Restoring the breasts’ volume and shape after pregnancy: Having children takes a toll on a woman’s body, especially after breastfeeding. Women who want to regain the shape and size of their pre-pregnancy breasts can often accomplish their goals with breast augmentation. In some cases, a breast lift combined with implants is needed if there is moderate to severe breast sagging.
- Create symmetry: Virtually all women have some degree of breast asymmetry—breasts that are slightly different sizes. In some cases, however, the size difference is so noticeable that it can be difficult to find bras or bathing suits that fit. It can also cause a woman to feel self-conscious about removing her clothes with a partner. Breast augmentation is an excellent solution because surgeons can use different implant sizes to create more evenly matched breasts.
- Make your stomach appear flatter: Increasing the size of the breasts creates contrast with a patient’s midsection compared to smaller breasts. Many women notice that their waists and abdominal area appear slimmer compared to their bodies’ upper half. If a patient’s abdominal skin is loose after having children, she may choose to combine breast augmentation with a tummy tuck as part of a mommy makeover.
You can see examples of these benefits in our gallery of breast augmentation before-and-after photos featuring some of Dr. Jewell’s actual patients. Whatever your reasons for thinking about getting breast implants, remember that increasing the size of your breasts is not the only benefit of the procedure.
