What Concerns Can be Addressed with a Breast Augmentation
The breast augmentation is the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure. The procedure is also highly customizable, allowing you to choose the implants you need based on your unique concerns and aesthetic goals. Here are some of the most common concerns that can be addressed with a breast augmentation:
- Volume loss after pregnancy or weight loss
Changes to the breasts can occur after pregnancy or a dramatic weight loss and can include volume loss and sagging. Your once perky and youthful breasts might appear deflated and sit lower on the chest. With a breast augmentation, your volume can be restored with the use of implants. There are several implant options on the market, the main ones being saline and silicone. But implants also allow you to choose shapes like round implants for restored volume higher on the chest, or teardrop shaped implants that help you achieve a natural breast slope.
- Naturally small or asymmetrical breasts
Many women opt for a breast augmentation early in life when they are unhappy with their natural breast size or have significantly asymmetrical breasts. A breast augmentation with implants can give you a subtle enhancement, or you can achieve a more voluptuous look. Dr. Coan will help you decide on the implant size that will help you achieve your goals and improve the balance to your body.
- Sagging and changes with age
As your breasts change with age and with the effects of gravity, you might begin to experience volume loss and sagging. Even after a previous augmentation, changes can occur over the years. In these cases, breast implants can be used to fill out your breasts or replace your old ones. A breast lift, or mastopexy, can also be added to address excess skin and lift the breasts to a more youthful position. A breast lift can also reposition your nipples to face forward.
