Many patients request breast augmentation surgery to increase the size of their breast and improve their shape. Accentuating the cleavage areas is also a frequent request. If you are wondering if it is the right time to get a breast augmentation or if there is an ideal moment of your life to dot it, here is some information that might help you decide.
When should I get a breast augmentation ?
There are several key moments in the life of a women where breast augmentation is considered.
Breast volume loss after pregnancy
Many women consult after pregnancy to request a breast augmentation since pregnancy often leads to breast volume loss as well as breast ptosis. These women are not satisfied with the appearance of their breasts after they have lost volume, roundness, tone and they wish to correct these imperfections. In this case, breast augmentation can restore everything that makes the breasts look young and beautiful, especially volume in the cleavage area. For patients presenting with significant breast ptosis (breast sagging) after pregnancy, a breast lift can be performed in combination with breast augmentation to lift up the breast to a youthful position and restore breast projection.
Atrophied breasts following massive weight fluctuations
Another moment where women consider breast augmentation is when the breast have dramatically changed after massive weight loss or fluctuations. In this case, the breasts are often atrophied (by volume loss) and sagging because of skin laxity. Here too, breast augmentation can restore volume that has been lost and possibly combined with a breast lift to treat breast ptosis. Typically, significant weight fluctuations lead to significant laxity in breast tissues, but it also depends on skin quality. Strong and elastic skin tends to be able to go through weight fluctuations without sagging.
