If you are dissatisfied with your breast size, breast augmentation surgery (breast enlargement) is a choice to consider.
Board certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Lynn Derby, performs numerous breast augmentation procedures each year.
Breast augmentation can:
Also known as augmentation mammaplasty, this procedure involves using implants to fulfill your desire for fuller breasts or to restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy.
Breast implants may also be used to reconstruct a breast after mastectomy or injury.
Breast augmentation may be a good option for you if:
Breast augmentation does not correct severely drooping breasts. If you want your breasts to look fuller and to to be lifted due to sagging, a breast lift may be needed in conjunction with breast augmentation. Breast lift surgery can often be done at the same time as your augmentation or may require a separate operation. Dr. Derby will assist you in making this decision.
The results of your breast augmentation surgery will be long-lasting and you will notice certain types of clothing and swim wear have a more flattering, curvy fit. Like many women who have had breast augmentation, you may also have a boost in self-confidence.
It's important to know that after receiving breast implants, results are not permanent and they may require replacement during your lifetime. You should expect to have future visits with the surgeon to discuss changes in your breasts. Over time, your breasts can change due to aging, weight fluctuations, hormonal factors and gravity. If, after a period of years, you become dissatisfied with the appearance of your breasts, you may choose to undergo a breast lift or implant exchange to restore a more youthful breast contour.
