Breast Augmentation Information
Which Kind of Breast Augmentation / Breast Enlargement Procedure is Right for You.
Most of us have a thing or two we’d like to improve about our physique. There’s nothing wrong with wanting to look and feel your best, nor is there anything wrong with taking steps to make that happen. Breast augmentation / breast enlargement are cosmetic surgery options available to help women who would like to improve on the size or shape of their breasts. Each woman should carefully consider whether breast augmentation/breast enlargement is right for her and, if so, which procedure will best meet her needs.
Whether you were born with small breasts which you would like to be fuller, or the natural processes associated with aging, weight loss, weight gain, pregnancy, and breastfeeding have caused your breasts to need a lift, the breast augmentation & breast enlargement experts at Northern Colorado Plastic Surgery can help you have the bigger, fuller, evenly proportioned breasts you desire.
Of course, breast augmentation / breast enlargement is not generally covered by medical insurance, as it is considered a cosmetic surgery (as opposed to breast reconstruction, performed for women who have had mastectomies, which most group health insurance plans are required by law to cover).
As with any other surgery, you should carefully consider whether breast augmentation / breast enlargement is right for you. Here are some of the things you should consider when trying to decide whether to take the next step and undergo breast augmentation / breast enlargement surgery:
Why do I want breast augmentation / breast enlargement surgery?
Most people who consider breast augmentation / breast enlargement do so, obviously enough, because they want larger or fuller breasts. Breast augmentation / breast enlargement will certainly accomplish that. Many women feel more confident and like the way they look better with larger, fuller breasts. Simply having larger breasts, however, doesn’t guarantee happiness, nor does it guarantee a better social life or anything else other than larger, fuller breasts.
How much change do I want?
Northern Colorado Plastic Surgery can enlarge your breast by one cup size or several. It’s up to you. Before you make any decisions, it’s a good idea to take some time looking at before and after photographs of other patients who have undergone breast augmentation / breast enlargement. These will be provided at your consultation appointment with the surgeon. You will also be able to try on different sizes while you are in the office so you can physically see the difference your breast enlargement / breast augmentation will produce.
Which type of breast augmentation / breast enlargement is right for me?
This is a very personal decision, and Northern Colorado Plastic Surgery is here to help give you the information so you can make a decision about what is right for you. In addition to saline and silicone implants, we offer the BRAVA system, an exciting new development in breast augmentation which helps to enlarge your breast by causing your own natural breast tissue to grow. The caring professionals at Northern Colorado Plastic Surgery are happy to discuss your breast augmentation / breast enlargement options with you.
What “problems” am I seeking to solve with breast augmentation / breast enlargement?
Many women with sagging breasts seek breast augmentation / breast enlargement more to deal with the sagging than because of a real desire for larger or fuller breasts. Breast augmentation / breast enlargement won’t stop your breasts from sagging. A breast lift can, however. Breast lifts can be performed independently or together with breast augmentation / breast enlargement procedures.
What do I expect to gain out of breast augmentation / breast enlargement?
The change may be subtle, or it may be dramatic. Most of that depends on the procedure you opt for. In any case, though, it’s important to have realistic expectations going into breast augmentation / breast enlargement surgery. Having surgery does not guarantee that you will have perfect breasts. As a matter of fact, perfect breasts (as if such a thing existed) should not be the goal. Improvement, not perfection, should be the goal of any cosmetic surgery.
Ultimately, the decisions are up to you. Northern Colorado Plastic Surgery is here to help you have the larger, fuller breasts you desire with breast augmentation / breast enlargement, and can also perform a breast lift, if needed.
