Why Breast Enlargement
Breasts are important for the body image, perhaps one of the most important on the body. The breast makes a woman appear more sensual, proportional, but most of all, boosts her confidence from the boardroom to the bedroom.
Many women have small breasts due to “poor genetics”, which are part of their race, or family. These can be easily corrected with the insertion of an appropriate sized implant, or injection of a filler.
Some women have unequal breast sizes. When this occurs, it is possible to insert an implant to equalize the size, or if the woman wants to have augmentation at the same time, 2 different sized implants can be inserted, one bigger than the other, in an attempt to equalize the breasts size.
Many women, after pregnancy, may experience the deflation of their breasts, which were usually engorged with milk during the pregnancy and lactation days. Very unfortunately, the ligaments (also called Cooper ligaments) which support the breast were stretched during the pregnancy and this leads to droopiness of the breasts tissue, and flattening and deflation. After replacing the lost volume using breast implants or fillers, the firmness and perkiness returns. Many women desire to be back to the size they had during their pregnancy.
In some slightly more severe cases, where the breast has drooped significantly, This procedure involves removal of extra skin before stitching up to create an inverted T shaped scar. Scars aside, the breast would be lifted significantly and the excess weight and sigginess will be gone. Sometimes, this procedure is coupled with breast reduction surgery, where the surgeon removes some of the glands tissue so that the entire volume of the breast is also smaller and lighter than before.
For readers who have large or deformed nipples, it is possible for the plastic surgeon to do a minor reconstruction, which will basically allow the nipple to become smaller, or even to correct inverted nipples.
