The benefits of breast augmentation over padded bras

Monday, December 31, 2012

Breast enhancement surgery offers remarkable benefits for women, yet those who are dissatisfied with the shape and size of their breasts may not immediately recognize the advantages that implants provide.

Instead, they may believe that padded bras - which are worn underneath clothes for support - are a better choice because they can give the illusion of a fuller, more balanced chest without surgery.

However, women who want to restore confidence and correct the size, shape or asymmetry of their breasts may want to opt for a better, more permanent solution - like augmentation.

Breast augmentation improves self-esteem
The kind of poise and elegance that breast implants bring to women can have a significant impact on confidence.

According to the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, in 2010, more than 318,000 women underwent breast augmentation, making it the most popular cosmetic enhancement of the year.

The news source also notes that breast augmentation was the most popular surgery in 2011 for women between the ages of 19 and 34 as well as women between 35 to 50 years of age.

Choosing breast augmentation
Breast augmentation surgery can bring you one step closer to the way you really want to look by enhancing your appearance and improving your confidence, but it requires some preparation.

Talking with a cosmetic surgeon can help you find out if you're a good candidate for breast implants and learn more about the possible outcomes of the procedure. If you feel like your figure is disproportionate because your breasts are not the ideal size, or that your chest size keeps you from leading the happy, fulfilled life you crave, having breast augmentation could be the perfect choice for you.

In addition, if you've noticed that your breasts have changed as a result of pregnancy, weight loss or aging and you're eager to reclaim your former figure, breast implants are a better choice than padded bras because they can fully restore your look and provide lasting results.

Whether you want to correct asymmetry problems or you simply want to have the body you've always dreamed of, plastic surgery offers distinct advantages over padded bras and other non-permanent solutions because it provides tangible results that you can enjoy for years to come!
