Breast augmentation is one of the most requested plastic surgery procedures for women. Although some young women undergo the procedure in their 20’s, a large percentage of patients are between the ages of 30 and 39. Women in this age range are assessing their bodies post pregnancy and post nursing. Anyone who has had a baby will tell you that these life events can rob a woman of her youthful figure.
For women who have not had a baby, small breasts and a desire for a larger bra size are the main motivation. Some women have naturally asymmetrical breasts with one larger than the other and they look to breast augmentation to correct the uneven size. Weight loss can leave breasts lacking in volume and this is another reason women may decide to get breast implants.
Augmentation will not correct drooping breasts. Sagging breasts with loss of volume after breast feeding most likely need to be lifted in a procedure called mastopexy. A breast lift can be performed with or without adding breast implants.
