Breast augmentation is increasing the breasts’ size with either implants or transfer of fat. This operation can additionally help to regain breast volume that was lost due to weight loss or pregnancy. This procedure also corrects normal breast size asymmetry, and helps to achieve a more voluptuous breast contour.
Why Should You Get a Breast Augmentation?
-Boost your breasts’ volume and projection.
-Breast and hip curves need to be more balanced.
-Improve your self-esteem and confidence.
What Can’t Breast Augmentation Surgery Do?
Breast augmentation will not help if your breasts are badly droopy. For sagging breasts to seem larger and raised, a breast lift is often combined with a breast augmentation. Breast lifting can either be done concurrently with your augmentation or as an isolated procedure. This decision will be made with the help of your cosmetic surgeon.
