Reasons to Consider Breast Augmentation

Have you been thinking about undergoing breast augmentation? You aren’t alone. Over 400,000 women opt to enlarge their breasts every year, making it the most popular cosmetic surgical procedure in America for 13 years running. 

But just because something is popular doesn’t automatically make it the right choice for you. At OasisMD, we understand that every patient is different. That’s why our team of health care providers offers a variety of lifestyle health care services to meet your unique needs and goals — including breast augmentation surgery.  

To help you better understand if breast augmentation is the right procedure for you, we’ve compiled this list of obvious and not-so-obvious reasons to consider enlarging your breasts. Read on to learn more! 

Why consider breast augmentation?

Breast augmentation is a type of surgery used to enlarge a person’s breasts. During the surgery, your doctor places implants under your existing breast tissue or under your chest muscles.  

Women think about having breast augmentation for a variety of reasons. Here are some of the reasons you might consider breast augmentation:

Boosting self-confidence

If you’ve been self-conscious about your breast size, breast augmentation can help you reclaim your confidence. Breast augmentation can not only increase your breast size, but also reshape your breasts and the position of your nipples. 

Reconstruction

If you’ve had a mastectomy or lumpectomy, the altered appearance of your breasts can be a constant reminder of your cancer. Breast augmentation can be used as part of the reconstructive process and help restore your natural appearance. 

Loss of volume

After pregnancy, your breasts change, losing volume and perkiness. This change also happens as you age, regardless of whether you’ve had children. Breast augmentation can restore lost volume, giving you naturally younger-looking breasts.  

Symmetry

Over 50% of women have different size breasts. If you have one breast that’s noticeably larger or if your breasts are shaped differently, breast augmentation can help correct your appearance, giving you better symmetry.

Kick-off healthier living

Since breast augmentation can make you feel better about the body you’re in, it also can be what you need to make healthier decisions all around. Many women find breast augmentation leads to better eating, regular exercise, and less worry about their appearance.  

What kinds of breast augmentation exist?

At OasisMD, our team offers you the choice of two different types of breast implants: saline implants and silicone implants. Saline implants are filled with sterile salt water after insertions, while silicone implants are filled with silicone gel. 

Both saline and silicone implants can help you achieve your goals. Silicone is thicker than saline, mimicking the natural look and feel of natural breast tissue better than saline. However, silicone implants may need to be replaced after 10-20 years. 

How can I learn more about breast augmentation?

The best way to have your breast augmentation questions answered is by scheduling a consultation with a surgeon at OasisMD. Your provider evaluates your medical history to ensure you’re a candidate, then goes over your goals, taking time to answer any questions you may have.
