the size and fullness of breasts with implants.
Breast Enlargement (augmentation mammaplasty) creates
larger breasts through the placement of special implants behind
the chest muscles and/or breast tissue. There are many reasons
for having a breast enlargement. Perhaps you feel that your
breasts are too small; have lost volume or roundness after
pregnancy; or are completely different sizes and you'd like
them to be more symmetrical.
Breast enlargement may also give a more youthful appearance
to your breasts. The breast enlargement procedure is not designed
to correct the appearance of an enlarged dark area around
the nipple (areola); or exceptional sagging or highly irregular
shapes-but other surgery may be indicated for these conditions.
Be sure to ask your surgeon.
Since the early 1960's, more than two million women in the
United States have increased their breast size and created
a fuller, more enhanced figure with this procedure. The popularity
of breast enlargement is predominately due to the new types
of implants that are now available. Your surgeon will discuss
different implants and incision sites with you to determine
the choice that is most appropriate for you.
