There are many factors that influence a woman’s breast size. Genetics, nutrition and a girl’s body fat percentage affect breast growth during puberty. As an adult, weight fluctuations, hormone levels, pregnancy, and breastfeeding can change a woman’s bust size.
Whether you’re unhappy with what nature has given you or circumstances in your adult life have taken a toll, breast augmentation surgery can give you the bust size you want.
What Breast Augmentation Can Offer You
Breast augmentation can affect both the size and firmness of your breasts. Implants made of either saline or silicone are placed over or under the pectoral muscles on your chest, depending on your build and preferred results.
Implants come in a wide range of sizes, leaving you to decide if you want to go for a big change or a subtle enhancement. If one breast is a bit smaller than the other, it’s possible for our surgeon to place a slightly larger implant in the smaller breast to create symmetry.
By placing implants, the natural breast tissue is also tightened, making for a firmer, higher breast.
Traits of a Good Surgical Candidate
Ideally, you want to be in the best shape possible before undergoing breast augmentation surgery. If you go into the procedure healthy and strong, it’s likely you’ll heal quickly and well.
If you are underweight or overweight, commit to bringing your weight within the normal range before surgery. If you smoke cigarettes or marijuana, you’ll need to quit before surgery, as smoking complicates healing and can have a negative impact on your results.
If you suffer from any chronic health issues, such as chronic bronchitis, diabetes or hypoglycemia, talk to our board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Sumida. He will be able to advise you about the safety of surgery and what you can do to ensure a quick and successful healing period.
Patients who have realistic expectations are usually quite happy with the results. If you have reasonable expectations before surgery, you’ll be better equipped to handle any issues that arise and you will also have the patience to wait to see the final result.
