The breasts play a significant role in femininity and body proportions for many women. Smaller breast sizes could create an unbalanced body figure and leave a woman feeling unconfident in her appearance. Breast augmentation in Virginia Beach with Galardi | Bowen | Rosenblum Plastic Surgery is a surgical option for enhancing breast size, shape, and placement while providing several emotional benefits.

After breast augmentation, most women experience a significant boost of confidence due to their new chest contours. Further, they could feel more comfortable wearing specific clothing items or change their wardrobe style with different breast sizes. Though the physical enhancements are a vital aspect of breast augmentation, the mental and emotional benefits are just as crucial for many who choose to undergo the procedure. Call our team today to learn about the benefits of breast augmentation.

Breast Augmentation

Physical Changes After Breast Augmentation

The most well-known motivator for breast augmentation surgery is increasing breast size. Breast augmentation alters breast size by surgically inserting implants or fat transfer within the chest wall. Many women seek out this cosmetic procedure after breast changes due to pregnancy, weight loss, or aging, resulting in a loss of breast volume.

Choosing breast augmentation implants provides perkier breasts whose shape and size achieve an optimal, specific look. Implants may be a better option for those looking for breasts that are rounder, firmer, and project farther off the chest. Another option is fat transfer to enhance breasts, which produces a more natural look but is more susceptible to visible aging signs.

Beyond changing breast size, the surgery offers several other appearance benefits. Breast augmentation could improve breast symmetry, breast placement on the chest, and body proportions. A breast augmentation surgery could enhance the entire body figure by balancing proportions between the chest and hips for an attractive, shapely look.

Emotional Benefits of Breast Augmentation

Many women seek out breast augmentation to improve their self-confidence concerning their physical appearance. A smaller breast size could make some women feel unfeminine and result in difficulty with certain clothing types. However, enhancing the chest with a breast augmentation operation at our Virginia Beach practice could boost an individual’s self-esteem and allow more freedom and comfort with clothing.

Studies have shown that nine out of ten women experienced increased self-esteem after breast augmentation. After surgery, women report higher satisfaction levels and improved quality of life due to better self-esteem levels. However, before choosing to move forward with the procedure, potential patients must have realistic expectations regarding surgical results.

Breast augmentation’s possible results depend on a patient’s natural chest size and body frame. Those looking for larger implants must have a body that can support the additional weight, and enough chest tissue to adequately cover the implants. Knowing the surgery’s limitations helps form realistic expectations for enhancing the chest and, in turn, more satisfaction with results.
