Why Should I Consider Breast Augmentation?

2 Minute Read: 

Breast augmentation continues to be the most popular plastic surgery procedure across the country with its ability to restore a more aesthetically pleasing and confidence-boosting breast appearance.

The top reason most women consider the procedure is to increase the size of small breasts. 

Sometimes, due to genetics, women have smaller breasts that create an imbalance with the rest of the body, particularly if they have curves elsewhere. However, increasing the size of small breasts is not the only reason women consider augmenting their breasts. 

There are many reasons to opt for breast augmentation surgery.

Breast Asymmetry

While every woman is likely to have slight breast asymmetry, most find that this asymmetry is hardly noticeable. 

Unfortunately for some, the difference is too significant to ignore. This can result from unbalanced estrogen levels, weight loss, growth spurts during puberty, micromastia, or other factors. 

Breast augmentation, either with implants or fat transfer, can help correct breast asymmetry, so you don’t have to worry about noticeably different-sized breasts.

Breast Deflation After Breastfeeding or Weight Loss

A common cosmetic concern following childbirth and breastfeeding or weight loss is the dramatic loss in breast volume. Breast augmentation can help you reclaim your pre-pregnancy body by restoring the size and youthfulness of your breasts. It is important to note that the implants will likely not impact your ability to nurse should you become pregnant again.

Often, women who choose implants after childbirth opt for a breast lift combination. This technique raises sagging breasts and restores perkiness.


Over time, your breasts can deflate and sag, resulting in a drooping appearance. 

Many women who feel uncomfortable with the way their breasts look due to aging undergo a breast lift with breast implants to add fullness and regain perkiness.

Congenital Breast Defects


Micromastia is characterized by underdeveloped breast tissue on one or both sides of the chest. While there are no health risks associated with underdeveloped breasts, many women seek breast augmentation to enhance the shape and size of the small breasts.

Tubular Breasts

Tubular breast deformity causes breasts to appear narrowly shaped, with a nipple and areola area that may look pointy or saggy.

Regardless of when tubular breasts develop, the condition can be corrected with breast augmentation to create appealing breasts that look normal and shapely.
