Also known as breast enlargement, breast augmentation is the leading cosmetic surgical procedure in the US, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. In 2017 alone, over 300,000 procedures were procured, a 3% rise from the previous year.
But why do women choose to go for breast augmentation? What’s the motivation? We explore the actual reasons women want to enhance their breasts appearance;
Boost Self-Esteem and Confidence
Women who are unhappy with the appearance of their breasts struggle with self-esteem and confidence. And when a woman is unhappy with her bust, it might end up impacting negatively on relationships, her career and other significant aspects of her life.
Studies conducted at the University of Florida reveal that women who are dissatisfied with the look of their breasts go for breast augmentation to enhance (or reclaim) their femininity and improve their self-esteem.
Disproportionately Small Breasts
Just like their body shapes and sizes, women breasts are also not equal. While some women will have large breasts and others small, some have the condition, Macromastia. Macromastia is a condition where after puberty, the breasts stop developing.
While most women have one breast large than the other one, some are too shouting and may be a couple of cup sizes in difference.
Such women will struggle with self-esteem issues and are overly self-conscious when it comes to matters breasts. They experience a hard time finding bras and other garments that can make them achieve a balance.
A breast surgery can help these women realize the feminine appearance they’ve always dreamed of, boost their confidence levels and consequently, improve their quality of life.
Pregnancy and Nursing
Usually, after labor, delivery, and nursing, some women find that their breasts have reduced, and drooped. Breast augmentation can help them reclaim the bosom appearance they hard before giving birth.
Gain a Youthful Look
Aging is inevitable. Unfortunately, it can also make a woman's breasts begin to sag and even get smaller, making them appear older. Worse still, gravity causes the breasts to droop even more against their desire.
Breast enlargement paired with a breast lift can make the breasts perky so women can appear more youthful.
Correct Weight Loss Impacts
There’s no denying that weight loss leads to improved health. But upon losing a significant amount of weight, most women find that their breasts have lost the full, perky shape. Such women undergo breast enlargement to achieve a fuller chest.
Breast enlargement not only improves the body appearance in women but also boosts their self-esteem and confidence. Aesthetic Surgery Institute wishes you the very best in your quest for a better-looking bust.
