Why do women want breast implants? The factors that drive women to undergo breast augmentation surgery play an […]
Breast augmentation is one of the most commonly performed aesthetic surgery procedures in the United States. There are many reasons that women consider undergoing breast augmentation. Some women want to look more proportional in clothing or to fit better into bathing suits, tops and dresses. Breasts change with time, as well as with life events such as weight loss or pregnancy, and some women want to regain their breasts’ youthful appearance and revive their femininity. Asymmetry, or uneven size or shape, is another reason. All of these are very good reasons to consider breast augmentation.
What To Expect
reast augmentation is usually performed with implants, which can be either silicone- or saline-filled. These implants may be placed either under or over the pectoralis muscle (submuscular vs. subglandular). The augmentation can be performed through incisions, either under the breast crease, along the outside of the areola, or in the axilla (armpit). The surgery is performed as an outpatient, meaning you will go home the same day as your surgery and recover at home. Dr. Shore will see you the next day in her office, and after that at two weeks, six weeks and then again three months after your surgery. Your activity afterwards will be restricted and gradually increased as you heal from surgery. Most women can return to work within two weeks after surgery.
