Women choose to get breast implants for many reasons, including: making breasts larger, regaining breast fullness and fixing asymmetrical or different sized breasts. The use of breast implants allows for increased breast size or corrections in breast shape. These implants are made using materials that have been tested and safe to use. Cosmetic surgeons now have special computer programs that allow you to see simulated pictures of what you’ll look like with your new breasts. Gone are the days where you would be making your decision without knowing the end result. Your cosmetic surgeon will be able to show you what you will look like with each breast size you are considering. The freedom to choose is not available with other procedures making augmentation a unique and very popular procedure. Many women find that even a conservative increase in breast size can make a big difference in their overall appearance. Breast augmentation is very often done as a standalone surgery, but an increasing number of women are choosing it as part of an overall “makeover” – like a mommy makeover. Breast lifts are often paired with a breast augmentation in order to improve the shape of the breasts while simultaneously enhancing the size.
