“Bigger is better” is so 2007. By now, more and more Americans are seeing that they don’t need that huge house, that huge car, and that huge debt load to “have it all.” The fact is that in life, it’s the little things that matter. That’s why I’m so happy to see more and more of my breast augmentation patients focusing on beautiful breast contouring, and de-emphasizing that they just want a bigger size.
There’s no getting around the fact that women have breast augmentation to achieve larger breasts. And it’s completely true that size does matter to many women. But for my patients and me the ultimate goal is beauty. While the media likes to sensationalize women who get enormous “boob jobs,” there are hundreds of thousands of women nationwide who just want to achieve a balanced and attractive breast shape.
In addition to size, think about:
- What interests me in breast augmentation?
I encourage all of my patients to dig deep and understand their motivations. A lot of women considering enlargement aren’t necessarily looking for that “wow” factor – they just want to feel a bit better about their image.
- What implant type makes sense for me long term?
Both saline and the latest generation of silicone gel have advantages and disadvantages. You need to choose wisely so you can enjoy your look for years to come. At my offices, I discuss these issues with you in detail so that you can feel comfortable that your choice is the right one for you.
- How much cleavage do I want?
How closely spaced your breast implants are and their “projection” can have a significant effect on how prominent your breasts appear.
- Will breast enlargement alone do the job?
Particularly for moms and older women, combining a breast lift with breast augmentation at my Philadelphia practice is an ideal way to achieve a naturally enhanced look.
