5 Reasons to Consider Breast Augmentation

If you’re unhappy with your breast’s appearance, breast augmentation may be right for you. It’s a safe and effective procedure that can change the overall shape and look of your breasts.

At Pasadena Plastic Surgery, we understand committing to cosmetic surgery can be tough. That’s why Michael Schwartz, MD, and our expert team list five reasons to consider breast augmentation surgery.

1.Weight loss and pregnancy

Pregnancy puts a lot of stress on your body—especially your breasts. They grow larger as they produce milk and once you’re finished breastfeeding, they lose volume. This can make them dense and cause stretch marks.

Many women visit Pasadena Plastic Surgery for our mommy makeover. It’s a collection of cosmetic procedures, including breast augmentation, that addresses the changes pregnancy causes. 

2. Breast asymmetry

Asymmetrical breasts mean one of your breasts is different in size, position, shape, or volume than the other. It’s not an uncommon condition but it can impact a woman’s self-esteem. 

Dr. Schwartz uses breast augmentations to reposition your breasts and make them even and symmetrical.

3. Correct breasts after surgery

Certain medical conditions, like breast cancer, require surgery as part of a treatment plan. This often leads to one or both of the breasts appearance changing.

You can choose to correct this with breast augmentation, as long as you’re healthy. Dr. Schwartz can provide you with more information during your consultation visit.

4. Enhance breast appearance

Some women have naturally small breasts. Of course, this isn’t a problem, but Dr. Schwartz can perform breast augmentation to enhance the size of your breasts.

5. Boost self-confidence

Changing how your breasts look can improve your self-confidence. Many women report a large boost in self-confidence after receiving breast augmentation. 

What you need to know about breast augmentation

Before you commit to breast augmentation, there are a few things you should know. While this procedure enhances your breast’s appearance, it can’t fix sagging breasts. You need a breast lift for that, which Dr. Schwartz can perform alongside augmentation.

Like any surgical procedure, breast augmentation has some risks. These risks include:

The risks aren’t common, and Dr. Schwartz has over 20 years of clinical experience, so you can expect a safe procedure. It takes around three weeks to fully recover. Our professional team gives you everything you need to ensure a quick, healthy recovery.
