Breast Augmentation: What Are the Benefits?

Posted in Breast Augmentation

For many women, their breasts are an integral part of their femininity and appearance. Your confidence in your breasts can impact multiple areas of your life, from what you wear to how you feel in your relationships. If you’re less than happy with the way your breasts look, it can have a devastating effect on your self-esteem and how you present yourself to the world around you. If you have smaller or asymmetrical breasts, you may negatively compare yourself to other women.

At Livingston Plastic Surgery in Houston, TX, Dr. Christopher K. Livingston offers patients who have dreamed of larger, perkier breasts an opportunity to achieve the figure they’ve always dreamed of with a breast augmentation.

Who Is a Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation is ideal for anyone with naturally small breasts or who has experienced changes in their breast size due to weight loss, pregnancy, or breastfeeding. To get approval as a candidate for this transformative procedure, you will first need to have a consultation with Dr. Livingston, where you can discuss your reasons for wanting surgery and your expectation surrounding your desired results. Dr. Livingston will use this information, along with the examination of your breasts and your full medical history, to determine if you qualify. He can also recommend which breast implant type will provide your desired results.

What Implant Types Are There?

Dr. Livingston offers multiple implant types, including silicone and saline. The difference between the two is the substance inside. Saline implants start with an empty shell, and the surgeon adds a saline solution once they have placed the implants in the desired position. This option allows Dr. Livingston to make a small incision and adjust your breast size accordingly.

Silicone implants have a silicone shell with a silicone gel core. Patients report these implants look and feel the most like natural breast tissue because there is no chance of rippling.

What Are the Benefits of Breast Augmentation Surgery?

The primary benefit of breast augmentation is the new and improved volume of your breasts. Not only does this procedure make your breasts larger, but it can also make them perkier, fuller, and sit higher on your chest. These effects have the bonus of turning back the clock for a more youthful appearance.

Many women have one breast that is larger than the other. A breast augmentation can correct this asymmetry by adding more volume to the smaller breast.

There are multiple psychological and lifestyle benefits of breast augmentation. Women who have undergone this procedure have reported the following:

  • Feeling more attractive, confident, and sexier
  • More enjoyment when shopping for clothing
  • Better relationship with their partner
  • Improved quality of life
