Breast Implants (1 hour)
Most women interested in breast augmentation or enlargement are intelligent, successful and well-adjusted individuals who are concerned with inadequate breast size.
The overwhelming majority of women who undergo breast augmentation are very satisfied with their result. Because of such high patient satisfaction and improvement in self-image, it is not surprising that breast augmentation is one of the more common aesthetic plastic surgery procedures performed.
There are two main groups of women that present for breast augmentation. The first group is women who feel they never developed the breast volume they desire. Most of these women are insecure regarding their breast size and have been for several years. Many of these patients benefit psychologically and experience an improvement in self-confidence.
In fact, studies show that many women have less anxiety, depression, and shyness after breast augmentation while having an improved self-image.
The second group of women that commonly seek breast enhancement are those that lost volume after pregnancy, a condition called post-partum breast involution. Many of these women also have some drooping as well. Many of these patients complain that ‘I have nothing left!’ Typically these patients have an augmentation which restores their breast volume (and sometimes a bit more!). A mastopexy, or lift, procedure can be performed at the same time to lift and improve shape simultaneously.
Breast augmentation is a safe procedure.
