Whether it’s breast augmentation, breast reduction, or breast lifts – breast surgeries done for cosmetic purposes come with numerous benefits. While some procedures are beneficial on a strictly aesthetic level, surgeries such as breast reductions are associated with medical benefits. Breast augmentation is an effective procedure for women with small, poorly shaped, and/or uneven breasts. However, you should only consider the procedure if the size or appearance of your breasts are affecting your self-esteem negatively. Breast augmentation involves placing prosthetic devices called breast implants inside your breasts. After the procedure, your breasts will appear bigger, fuller, and perkier. These aesthetic improvements will ultimately boost your self-confidence, which should improve your quality of life. On the other hand, there are many patients with overly large breasts. Huge breasts is not only aesthetically displeasing, but they can be physically painful and uncomfortable. Most patients with plus sized breasts complain of backache, in addition to shoulder and neck pain. The physical discomfort occurs due to the extra weight of the breasts. Fortunately, the breast reduction procedure can effectively decrease the size of oversized breasts. This is accomplished by surgically removing the excess fat, glandular tissue, and skin from the breasts. After the procedure, the physical pain and discomforts associated with oversized breasts will decrease drastically or disappear completely. Moreover, your breasts will decrease in size and complement your overall body. This will enhance your appearance aesthetically. As a result, your self-esteem and life satisfaction will improve, and you’ll be able to confidently participate in multiple activities, including swimming and other sports. There are also patients who have sagging breasts. The poor shape and contour of their breasts affect their lives adversely. Women who are more conscious of their image feel insecure as a result. For such patients, I recommend the breast lift surgery. The procedure involves removal of the saggy, excess skin from the breasts, the tightening of the breast muscles, and lifting of the nipples and the surrounding areola to a higher position. As a result, the breasts appear perkier, firmer, and more aesthetically appealing. These improvements in the shape of the breasts ultimately result into an improvement in life satisfaction for many patients.
