Women who choose to have breast enhancement surgery (also termed augmentation mammoplasty) do so to improve their self image. More specifically, some women feel dissatisfied because their breasts never developed to a size that meets their expectation. Others seek to restore balance to a breast that is somewhat smaller than the other, causing breast asymmetry. Often, women want these procedures to restore their natural breast volume, which may have decreased as a result of pregnancy, weight loss, or aging. A breast lift (or mastopexy) may also be necessary in these situations to elevate and re-establish an appropriate breast position. Additionally, women may seek breast enhancement after experiencing significant frustration with certain clothing fashions. They may have noted that dresses which fit well at the hips are often too large at the bust line or may feel self conscious wearing swim suits or form-fitting tops. Whatever the motivation, though, the optimal treatment for any given individual can only be determined by a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon. Their unique qualifications will enable good surgical candidates to undergo safe, effective surgery, fulfilling all reasonable expectations and restoring self-confidence.
