Most women are dissatisfied with their breasts; they have a love/hate relationship
with them. While breasts were designed to provide nourishment for our
young – they have become symbols of fertility and femininity and
in most developing countries are considered “provocative”
in every sense of the word, which is one reason why breastfeeding in public
has become such a hot debate.
Since breasts symbolize beauty and sex appeal, it’s no wonder why
so many women have misgivings about their natural breast shape, especially
after going through physical changes, such as pregnancy or extreme weight loss.
Ask any woman, and you’ll have a difficult time finding one who is
satisfied with her breasts. Usually, you’ll hear comments like,
“they’re too small” or “too lopsided” or
“too saggy.” Then, you have the breastfeeding mothers whose
breasts performed beautifully when nature called, but once they weaned
their babies, their breasts no longer resembled their pre-baby selves.
Considering the fact that breasts are delicate parts and how they can lose
volume and shape from weight loss, pregnancy, childbirth, and simple aging,
it’s understandable why so MANY women run to the nearest plastic
surgeon’s office for a
Are you considering a breast augmentation?
Perhaps your breasts are small and you’ve been thinking about a breast
augmentation. Or, perhaps your breastfeeding or childbearing days are
over and you’re on the fence about getting surgery to bring your
Our motto is that before you take the plunge, you should fully research
breast augmentation – this way you can be certain if it’s
right for you. Here is some information that can help you make an informed decision!
The bigger isn’t always better argument.
Many women think that it’s better to go bigger, but that is not the
case! Unless you work in certain industries where it pays to have a large
bust, many plastic surgeons will attest that it’s better to aim
for a natural-looking breast size.
If a woman is flat-chested, the goal is for her to be able to fill out
normal-sized clothing. When women go overly large, it can be very difficult
to find bras, bikinis and tops that fit properly – a shopping nightmare!
Not only that, but extremely large implants look worse than smaller implants
Sizing of an implant is “individual.”
You cannot take a “one size fits all” approach with implants;
that’s highly unrealistic. The size of an implant has to do with
the woman’s body. For example, a 100 pound woman that is 5’
tall and a size 0 will have much smaller implants than a 5’9”
woman that is 175 pounds and a size 12.
One thing we’ll do is have a woman try on a bra with different sized
implants. As she tries different implants with the bra, she’ll put
on a shirt and look at her chest from different angles in the mirror.
This is an effective method for estimating the right size implants and
it helps women get a feel for how big their new breasts will be.
Breast augmentation is a highly-individualized procedure. Some women are
seeking “natural-looking” results, where in contrast, nothing
would make others happier than a fuller look and cleavage of a push up bra.
Bottom line: you should meet with our
