Breast Augmentation: Is It Worth It?

Many patients that we see feel self-conscious about their bodies, especially their breasts. Too small, the sizes don’t match up, they look deflated and saggy, it is loose or they just don’t fit my body are just a few of the concerns we hear. Even though the concerns vary, the feeling of wanting a change is universal. In our office, we have a simple motto: you should love your breasts! This is our ethos and we are here to help.  If you feel this way, the first step is to decide if breast augmentation is right for you.  But how do you know if it is worth it?  This surgery will give you a boost but is it right for you?  Take a look at all the ways breast augmentation can make a difference to see if it is a good fit. 

Breast augmentation: highlighting the benefits

Breast augmentation is an amazing surgery that gives you an instantaneous change.  But there are factors to consider when deciding if it is right for you.  The cost of the procedure, the intensity of the immediate recovery, and the likelihood of having more surgery in the future are a few factors that must be included in your calculation.  But in most cases, the benefits outweigh the negatives. To help you make this decision, here is a highlight of the benefits:

  • Instant gratification: The results are instant with breast implants. Once they are placed, you will see a visible difference in your breast size and shape right away. It is an immediate confidence booster!
  • Check a box: For many women, their breast’s appearance causes them frustration. Breast augmentation offers a definitive and long-lasting solution by increasing fullness and improving the contour. No more feeling self-conscious!
  • Lasting results: After this surgery, your new breast size and shape can last for years. While you may eventually need replacement surgery down the line, breast augmentation offers a longer-term solution.  Enjoy it for the long haul!
  • Customizable: You can truly customize your look by choosing a specific implant size, shape, and profile. This allows you to tailor the results to your body and most importantly, your personal goals. The options are endless!
  • Simple Recovery: While the immediate recovery can be intense, it is short-lived. You should expect some tenderness, swelling, and limitations on your activity but most are back to baseline within a few weeks. The results make a little short-term discomfort worthwhile!
