Breast size and shape is based on many different factors, including a girl’s nutrition and the amount of body fat during puberty, a woman’s weight and whether or not she has had children or breastfed. Unfortunately, diet and exercise can only make tiny changes to breast size and can do basically nothing for shape and volume. However, many women wish they had a bigger bust to enhance their overall look. If you are not satisfied with your breasts and are considering cosmetic surgery to get the figure you desire, breast augmentation might be right for you.
What is Breast Augmentation?
The phrase breast augmentation is used to refer to surgical procedures designed to change the size, volume, shape or height of a woman’s breasts. It can refer to enhancement, which makes the breasts larger and fuller with implants, or reduction, which reshapes the breasts to be smaller. It can also refer to a lift procedure, which places the breasts higher up on the ribs. A lift can be performed by itself or along with an enhancement or a reduction.
How Can Breast Augmentation Help Me?
If you want a larger, fuller bosom, an enhancement surgery can give you a more impressive bust. Implants made of either silicone or saline are inserted beneath the natural tissue of your breasts. This makes them nearly impossible to feel, while also making your breasts feel firmer to the touch. Depending on the size of the implant and the location in which it’s placed, enhancement can also make your breast appear higher and perter without an actual lift procedure.
How Long Do Breast Implants Last?
There is no expiration date on implants, regardless of whether they are silicone or saline. Some women have kept the same pair for decades. The average, however, is ten years. Keep in mind that this average includes women who ultimately decided to change to smaller or larger implants and also includes women who decided to have their implants removed altogether.
