Breast Enhancement Offers More than Just Breast Implants
Author: Abigail Aaronson
For a woman, her breasts are a symbol of femininity. She nurtures her young with them and seduces her partner with them. They make her feel beautiful and sexy.
But, maybe you are dissatisfied with your breasts. Maybe they are too small or sag a bit and you are feeling self-conscious and uncomfortable in your own body. This can lead to a lack of self-confidence, both personally and professionally. Depending on the issue, a breast enhancement procedure is available to help you get the results you desire.
Here are the most common procedures:
- Breast Augmentation- This is perhaps the most well-known type of procedure. It involves placing silicon or saline implants under the chest area to increase the size.
There are a number of reasons to get implants. Recent weight loss (it seems women lose fat here first!) and pregnancy can leave the chest area smaller and saggy. Augmentation can perk them right up and after these great accomplishments, why not treat yourself? Often times, it is simply genetics that prevent the chest area from growing. Implants can give you the curves you have longed for since puberty.
- Breast Reduction- The surgeon goes into the breast and removes tissue, fat and skin to get to the desired size. A woman with A cups may envy a woman with the D cups, but there is a reason this reduction procedure exists.
There are a lot of problems associated with a very large chest. A common problem is back pain, especially if they are disproportionate to the body. Sagging, or ptosis, is also a problem. Another aesthetic issue that can be solved by this procedure is asymmetry- one breast is bigger than the other. The surgeon can bring them into symmetry and contour them to look the same.
- Breast Lift- To correct severe sagging, the surgeon makes two incisions running vertically above and around the nipple and then vertically below the nipple. A third horizontal incision runs across the under crease of the breast. The surgeon then removes the excess skin and repositions the nipple to a higher more natural location and removes the necessary skin to pull the breast up.
Your surgeon may suggest implants as well to achieve optimal results from your lift. A problem with the lift is that while it corrects sagginess, there are several incisions so scarring may be an issue.
- Nipple Surgery- It is possible that you like the size, shape and perkiness of your breasts, but are self-conscious about the appearance of the nipples. This procedure can correct nipple size. By repositioning the skin and tissue or removing it altogether, the surgeon can correct asymmetrical nipples or ones that are disproportionate to the breast.
Another common problem is inversion of the nipple where there is too little tissue underneath and it looks sunken in. Again, moving tissue around can correct this problem.
No matter what your personal issue is, always be sure to carefully research the procedure and your doctor. Make sure he is a board certified surgeon licensed to perform breast enhancement. Through a consultation, you can explain the look you want and he can advise you on all the options to get the best results.
Knowing what you want and having an experienced qualified surgeon helps ensure a positive and successful surgical experience. Great results can mean a more confident and sexier you- with clothes or without!
