Breast Augmentation: Giving your Breasts a Boost

Women everywhere rejoiced when someone (most assuredly a woman) came up with the idea of selling bikini tops and bottoms separately. Finally, the life-long problem of needing different sizes was solved. However, if you’re not in to separates, or simply not happy with the size and shape of your breasts, perhaps a breast augmentation would be a better option than that bikini. Breast enhancement can help to balance out your proportions, improve size and contours, and boost not only your bra size, but your confidence too!

Voluptuous Volume

It is not uncommon to have one breast bigger than the other, which can leave you feeling lopsided. Sometimes childbirth and breastfeeding can result in smaller, flattened breasts, and weight loss can cause them to sag. Being bigger on the bottom than on the top can make it hard to find clothes that fit, and even leave you feeling self-conscious. Heredity can play a role as well.  

Let’s face it, our breasts come in all different shapes and sizes, but not necessarily the ones we want! Nothing says you have to be stuck with the boobs you’re born with, though. Whether you want to balance out a bigger bottom, make a mismatched pair a more similar set, fluff up where it’s flat, or add some va-va-va-voom to your volume, breast implants can do the trick, and make you feel beautiful inside and out. There are two main varieties:

Saline—these types are filled with sterile salt water and provide a uniform shape, feel, and firmness. Should they spring a leak, the saline will be absorbed and expelled naturally.

Silicone—filled with silicone gel, these feel a bit more natural, but may need some regular maintenance to ensure they stay intact.

Both types come in all sizes and shapes and are FDA-approved.  Dr. Lisa J. Learn can help you decide which is the best option for you.

Cleavage with Inconspicuous Scars

If you are worried about scarring, rest assured that incisions are made in discreet places such as underneath your breasts or armpits, or around the areolas. Location depends on the type of implant you get, as well as the size. You will have to care for these incision sites post-enhancement surgery by applying medication and keeping them clean and protected with gauze or bandages. You may need to wear a support bra 24/7 for a few weeks. Some soreness and swelling is likely during this time. Pain medication can help to ease discomfort. Be sure to follow instructions carefully and refrain from too much activity or heavy lifting.

No matter if you long for your pre-baby profile or a sexier silhouette, a more evenly-proportioned look or just plain stronger self-esteem, breast augmentation can help you feel and look your best.
