For many women, the shape, size or overall appearance of their breasts can make them feel self-conscious about their bodies. While some may consider cosmetic breast surgery to address their insecurities, others may never approach a plastic surgeon because they’re nervous—or because they’re not sure if they’re a candidate!
You can feel better about your breasts, and as a result, be happy with your body! Some of the reasons to have cosmetic breast surgery may surprise you, but don’t worry—Dr. Lazarus and his staff can answer any questions you may have.
Increase Breast Size and Improve Shape
The most common form of cosmetic breast surgery is augmentation, or breast enlargement. For women who feel their breasts are too small, this procedure can help achieve their desired cup size, helping enhance the contour and proportion of their entire body.
Patients have the option to choose between silicone gel or saline breast implants, both of which provide beautiful and natural-looking results. Dr. Lazarus will address the pros and cons of each type of implant according to the goals you have in mind at your initial consultation.
Combat Effects of Pregnancy and Aging
Have you noticed a change in the shape, position and firmness of your breasts over time? Breast lift surgery, or mastopexy, is an ideal option for women experiencing sagging breasts due to natural aging—and even pregnancy! By tightening up loose skin and lifting the breasts to a desirable position, patients can feel more confident in their appearance.
For women who have experienced a loss of volume after pregnancy, breast augmentation can address this insecurity as well. In fact, breast enlargement is often performed months after a breast lift for patients who want to add implants and further improve the appearance of their breasts.
Reduce Oversized Breasts
While most women seek breast implants for an increase in size, there are many who have the opposite concern. Patients who are struggling with oversized breasts should consider breast reduction surgery, as a heavy chest area can lead to medical problems such as back pain, skin irritation and breathing problems. Not only can the excessive weight result in pain and discomfort, but it can be embarrassing for women whose movement and activity are limited.
Breast reduction surgery consists of removing excess skin, fat and tissue to give you breasts that better fit the proportion of your body. Reducing the size of your breasts can improve your lifestyle and confidence—promoting the ability to enjoy what you couldn’t prior to surgery.
