Regardless of how popular breast augmentation procedures are, it can be a little bit scary when you’re the patient. Is this the right choice for me? What is recovery like? Will I like my breasts more afterward? These are all questions your Longwood Plastic Surgery physician can answer during your initial appointment. Here are some ways a breast augmentation has benefited past patients.

How Does Breast Augmentation Work?

First, let’s discuss how the procedure itself is performed. Breast augmentation is one of the more customizable cosmetic enhancement treatments because the techniques vary by individual. First, your choice of saline versus silicone will affect how your breasts will look and feel. The shape of the implant will also contribute to your final breast shape. The volume you choose impacts size and forward projection from your chest wall. At LPS, we have implant sizers to help you determine the appropriate volume for your body type. Then, we use 3D photography to simulate the appearance of your breasts after the procedure.

The placement of the implants will also need to be determined by your surgeon. There are two types of implant placement; submuscular and subglandular placement. Submuscular placement is when the implant is placed below the pectoralis muscle. Subglandular placement puts the implant above the pectoralis muscle. Your optimal placement option will be taken into consideration and thoroughly discussed during your consultation.

Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation?

Women concerned about small breasts, have an asymmetry they’d like to correct, or are unhappy with the shape of their breasts make ideal candidates for breast augmentation. Those with the most satisfying results are non-smokers who have realistic expectations for their outcomes. A consultation at LPS with a skilled, board-certified surgeon is a great way to get started.

Benefits of Breast Augmentation

Improved self-confidence. 

When you aren’t plagued by the insecurities your breasts have caused you, your confidence can really soar. People who feel good about how they look walk taller, smile more, and generally have an improved outlook on life.

Improved relationships. 

No patient should ever get a breast augmentation under pressure from anyone else, but when you have breast implants to enhance your life, there are ripples into your relationships. Being less worried about how your body looks can give you more mental capacity to enjoy the moment. You may find yourself accepting more social invitations or looking forward to dressing up for special occasions.

Filling out your style. 

What clothes you wear says a lot about you as a person, and if your breasts can’t quite pull off the styles you love, having a breast augmentation can help. When you’re confident in your figure, and you know you look good in dresses or tops that match your aesthetic, it can shine through in how you carry yourself and how you interact with others.

Feel more youthful. 

Age is something we all face, but we can let it happen on our terms. The fullness of breast implants can improve breasts that have somewhat deflated due to age, and can fill out skin that has become a little more stretched over time. Implants may also position the breasts in a more youthful, perky way that adds attractive cleavage and overall appeal.

With today’s implant technology and the skill of the breast experts at Longwood Plastic Surgery, your breast augmentation can be a fulfilling procedure that enhances more than your appearance. If you’ve suffered insecurity about your breasts’ shape, size, or asymmetry, a consultation with our skilled physicians is a great way to alleviate that and love your body again.

I was recommended to Dr. Morris through my doctor at BID-Needham. Due to prior surgeries, I had some issues and Dr. Morris is the best. He has done a fantastic job with my abdomen core and I feel and look fantastic.
