As one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries in the world, women in all walks of life choose to have an augmentation for reasons as varied as asymmetry, disproportionately small breasts, reduced volume resulting from pregnancy or weight loss, or simply a desire for a more shapely body. By improving the shape and volume of the breasts, breast augmentation can provide results that can boost self-image and confidence. During your breast augmentation consultation, you will get the chance to feel the different types of implants available, and you will try on various implant sizers in front of a mirror to help you to get an idea of how you will look following the surgery. You should also bring pictures of the look you would like to achieve, as well as a favorite top to wear when trying on implant sizers.
In addition to implants, breast augmentation can be accomplished with fat grafting. This method takes fat from elsewhere in the body, typically the abdomen, flanks and thighs, and places it in the breasts. This can be performed in conjunction with implants to improve contour, or alone to achieve a modest increase in breast volume. Most procedures can increase breast size by a half to a full cup, and it can be repeated for greater results.
