Breast Enlargement (Breast Augmentation)
Breast enlargement is one of the most commonly requested aesthetic operations, with more than one and a half
million procedures performed in the United States to date. Most women undergo this type of surgery because they
want to feel better about their appearance, both in and out of clothes. Regardless of what the ads and commercials
will have you believe, surgical augmentation is the only way to increase the size of the breast.
During your initial consultation, you will be encouraged to discuss your desires, fears, expectations, and goals.
In addition to increasing breast size, the doctor will strive to create a more aesthetically pleasing breast by
improving the shape, balance, and proportion. The first and foremost objective therefore, should be the creation
of breasts that are proportional to the individual's chest and shoulders. Many patients initially desire breasts
that are too large or small in proportion to their body frame. The doctor can determine the appropriate degree of
enlargement and reduce the chance of disappointment with the final result, only by conducting an examination with
the patient in a standing position.
No woman has breasts that are perfectly symmetrical in volume, shape, or position, and it would be unrealistic
to expect a surgeon to create what nature cannot. Your doctor, however, will aim for relative symmetry. In addition,
a youthful appearance–firm breasts with proper uplift–is desirable. Finally, as much as possible, the breasts
should move naturally and feel soft to the touch.
