Breast implants are not just about changing the size of one’s breasts. Although it may seem as simple as that, there are many other benefits to the procedure. Breast augmentation is just one breast enhancement procedure performed by the experts at REAL Cosmetic & Plastic Surgery. Below are just some of the benefits of getting breast implants in Melbourne.
Improve the Look of Small Breasts
Breast implants may be used to simply enhance the size of the breasts.
Improve Breast Symmetry
While all women have some type of breast asymmetry, others have a very visible case of lopsided appearance. This may be improved by using two different sized implants. To achieve the most natural results possible, the patient’s underlying anatomy–e.g., chest and breast dimension, tissue coverage, and any pre-existing asymmetry–is examined prior to surgery.
Aside from size difference, asymmetry may also stem from uneven nipple position. One breast may sag more than the other, or one may have a lopsided submammary fold. All of these factors are identified during a pre-op physical exam to create the right surgical approach and achieve the desired results.
Post-Breast Cancer Surgery (Mastectomy)
While mastectomy is a life-saving surgery, it may leave the patients with breast deformity, which may have a detrimental effect on their body image and self-esteem. After all, breasts have always been associated with womanhood. In a nutshell, breast implants are not just for cosmetic breast augmentation as they may also play a critical role in reconstructive surgery.
Improve Body Proportions
It is not uncommon for patients to seek breast implants to improve their overall body proportions or to achieve a more hourglass figure, which has become the quintessential feminine beauty.
Improve Body Image
Studies have suggested that breast implants may help boost body image, sexual satisfaction, and self-esteem, provided that the surgery is performed on the right candidates–i.e., physically fit women with realistic goals and expectations.
