Women’s bodies go through a lot of changes throughout their lives, and sometimes, those changes can affect the way a woman feels about herself. One area that often gets a lot of attention is a woman’s breasts. And that’s why breast rejuvenation is such a popular choice for women who want to enhance how their breasts look.
Why Choose Breast Rejuvenation?
Some women have naturally small or asymmetrical breasts. For women who feel self-conscious about breast size, shape or asymmetry, breast enhancement procedures can help. For breast augmentation, you can choose from a variety of implant options, including saline or silicone implants, and your surgeon can customize the procedure to create the breast look you envision. Breast rejuvenation is not necessarily only about implants – many women choose a breast lift as well.
Breast Augmentation After Having A Baby
Women’s breasts go through a lot of changes during pregnancy and breastfeeding. As the breasts enlarge and produce milk, the skin stretches, which can cause the breasts to sag and lose their shape. Getting breast augmentation after having a baby can help you restore your pre-pregnancy breasts or even improve upon them. You can also choose to combine a breast lift with breast augmentation to enhance the size and position of your breasts.
Breast Rejuvenation After Weight Gain/Loss
Sometimes, natural aging or fluctuations in weight can cause the breasts to lose volume and elasticity, resulting in sagging or deflated-looking breasts. Breast rejuvenation can help you restore your breasts’ youthful appearance by lifting and reshaping them, as well as replacing lost volume.
Instead of adding breast volume, some women with larger breasts want to go the other direction and decrease their breast size. Large breasts can cause back pain, may limit certain activities and exercise, and can make a woman feel self-conscious. Breast reduction procedures not only reduce breast volume, they can also serve to lift and reshape the breasts. When performed by a skilled surgeon, a breast reduction can help a woman achieve a remarkably remodeled chest.
What If I’ve Already Had Breast Rejuvenation?
For women who have had breast augmentation surgery in the past, there are many reasons to consider a breast implant “redo.” Some of these include:
- Wanting to go with a smaller or larger breast implant size
- Wanting to change from a saline or older silicone implant to modern silicone gel implants
- Experiencing complications, such as a capsular contracture (the hardening of excessive scar tissue around one or both implants) or a ruptured implant
- Wanting to remove rather than replace the existing breast implants
Breast implant revision procedures are in almost all cases more complex than the initial breast augmentation surgery. For this reason, it is particularly important to find a cosmetic surgeon with experience in breast implant redos.
Regardless of the reason you may be considering breast rejuvenation, it’s important to remember that any breast enhancement procedure should be highly individualized and customized to your anatomy and your goals. The best way to determine which breast surgery may be best for you is to schedule a consultation with a skilled, experienced and reputable cosmetic surgeon. They will evaluate your individual needs and goals and recommend a personalized treatment plan. They will also discuss the risks and benefits of the procedure, so you can make an informed decision about whether breast rejuvenation is right for you.
