Breast Augmentation (Augmentation Mammaplasty)

Implants have been used for decades to enhance the bust for larger, shapelier, or more symmetric breasts. Breast augmentation is highly customizable and patient specific with the ability to choose incision placement, implant material, and a number of other features.

The Skinny


Overview

According to the latest study by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, breast augmentation surgery is the number one most popular cosmetic procedure in the country, with over 300,000 procedures performed in the United States in 2017 alone. Breast augmentations can be reconstructive or cosmetic, and the reasons that patients might choose to have the surgery are wide-ranging and variable.

For example, some of the reasons that patients might explore their options for breast enlargement include the need for breast reconstruction following a mastectomy for breast cancer, cosmetic improvement to achieve an asymmetrical breast size in otherwise healthy individuals, cosmetic breast repair after an injury, and for many other reasons. One of the most common reasons that patients choose to have a breast augmentation procedure is simply to increase the size of a naturally small bust, or to regain breast volume after losing breast tissue from weight loss, pregnancy, or to correct sagging breasts due to the natural aging process.

Breast augmentation procedures are not a one-size-fits-all operation, and much consideration must be given to customize the procedure to suit the individual needs and preferences of each patient. Patients that want to undergo a breast augmentation procedure must, therefore, meet with a plastic surgeon beforehand for an evaluation and a consultation. At this meeting, the doctor will determine what your options are for breast enlargement based on a variety of factors that include your body type, the natural shape of your breasts and skin type, your medical history, and your aesthetic goals. Your doctor will then give their recommendations as to the type of procedure that will offer the best outcome, and the surgery procedure methods they are most comfortable using to achieve the best results for you.

While breast augmentation procedures are performed for a variety of reasons, and each one is tailored according to the unique and specific needs of each patient, the goal of most breast augmentation surgeries is the same. Breast augmentation is designed to enhance the fullness, volume, and proportional balance of the breasts, and to elevate the self-confidence of the patient with a more attractive appearance.
