Breast augmentation is one of the more popular plastic surgeries in the United States. We often speculate why women have breast enhancement. Is it because of insecurity? Or maybe their partner pressured them to have the procedure? The reality of why so many women choose breast augmentation is more complicated than that. Here are the top reasons why so many women opt to have breast augmentation surgery:

They Want Bigger Breasts

Whether because of life events, aging, or wanting to increase her breast size for many years, a woman may wish to have larger breasts. This desire is not just for vanity’s sake but in many cases; it is because her smaller-than-average breast size does not conform to her body type. She may struggle to find clothes to fit because of an uneven body proportion, which makes it challenging to find swimsuits, blouses, or clothing off-the-rack.

Most women we talk to who seek breast augmentation are not looking to go from an A to DD, but rather to increase by one cup size or improve breast volume.

They’ve Lost Weight

Losing excess weight is a good thing. It helps improve a woman’s health and lifestyle. But losing a large amount of weight may change the shape and size of her breasts. Reducing inches from a girl’s figure can leave her breasts smaller, with less volume. If breasts lose size, shape, and elevation after significant weight loss, breast augmentation can be combined with a breast lift to deliver a perky, full, and firm breast presence.


Few women have perfectly symmetric breasts, but when uneven breast size is noticeable, breast augmentation is the perfect solution. An increase in asymmetry may result after childbirth or weight loss. Minor variation in size can be resolved with saline implants because they can be adjusted once inserted in the breast area. Using different sized silicone may be an option or combining implants with breast reduction surgery is another.

Breasts Change After Pregnancy

Pregnancy may alter several things on a mother’s figure. Breastfeeding can change more. The fluctuation of breast size during pregnancy and milk ducts becoming full, then empty again, can wreak havoc on a woman’s breast shape and firmness.

Although exercise and eating right may reduce the inches gained during pregnancy, breast volume will not return without additional help. Breast augmentation helps mothers regain their pre-pregnancy body outline. Combining the procedure with a mommy makeover will bring improvement to other parts of her body as well.

They Have a Congenital Abnormality

Breasts don’t always develop fully on their own. Tuberous breasts have irregular shapes, puffy nipples, or asymmetry. The appearance of tuberous breasts caused by congenital abnormalities varies from woman to woman. Many don’t realize they have this issue until they can compare their appearance with other women or girls. Breast augmentation can help with tuberous breasts by focusing on improving the shape, adding volume, and correcting asymmetry.

It’s Time to Feel Sexy Again!

Pregnancy, weight loss, or aging can alter your breasts’ appearance and change how you feel about your attractiveness. A breast augmentation helps you feel confident about your body and more sensual with how you look? Increasing confidence in your body outline will also improve your quality of life. It will make you feel sexier and more confident when shopping for that new outfit or spending time with that special somebody!
