Due to pregnancy and lactation, the breast can increase in size but return to normal after nursing. This may make some women feel like their breasts have deflated due to lost volume and sagging skin. Breast augmentation returns the breast to its original, plump state.Overall, the confidence boost that breast augmentation brings makes women feel more capable and empowered. The happiness and satisfaction they get from their enhanced appearance improves their outlook in life, allowing them to have a better relationship with others.
