Year after year, breast augmentation remains one of the top plastic surgery procedures in America. It may be best known for bumping you up a cup size or two, but that isn’t the only benefit the procedure has to offer. Breast augmentation with implants helps our Lexington, KY, patients improve their entire appearance for the better. By balancing your shape and enhancing overall symmetry, the surgery can affect the whole body from head to toe.
Want to know more about how your body will change after breast augmentation? In this blog post, we will discuss a few benefits you can expect from the procedure.
It balances out your proportions.
Creating beautiful curves with breast implants is all about adding volume in the right places. If you have naturally smaller breasts, enhancing their size can make them match the rest of your body. Larger breasts can often bring your hips and shoulders into proportion and give you that coveted hourglass shape. But remember: Bigger isn’t always better. Our team will help you find the right implant size, profile, and placement to create the perfect curve-enhancing effect.
It makes your tummy look more toned.
Larger, lifted breasts provide a more distinct contrast between the chest and the midsection. This makes your waist and abdomen look smaller and slimmer compared with the upper half of your body. Many women include a tummy tuck with their breast augmentation to enhance this effect. If you struggle with loose skin and excess fat around the midsection, consider adding body contouring to your breast enhancement procedure.
It improves the look and shape of breasts after breastfeeding.
Breast augmentation can’t remove stretched-out skin (that’s better suited for a breast lift), but it can correct “deflated” breasts caused by pregnancy. Many women say that their breasts seem empty and lacking in volume after breastfeeding. Implants correct this lost volume and restore the breasts to their previous pre-baby shape. You can consider combining your breast augmentation with a breast lift procedure for the most dramatic breast enhancement results.
It corrects any preexisting asymmetry issues.
Breast asymmetry is a very common problem that affects most women to varying degrees. Some estimates say about half of all women struggle with some form of breast asymmetry. Breast augmentation is the most direct way to fix this issue, as breast implants can add extra volume to the smaller breast. If you want to correct the look of an uneven chest, ask your doctor about adding implants of different sizes to each side of your body.
