Many women feel that it is highly important to look and feel their best. However, this can be difficult if you feel self-conscious over breasts you feel are too small. Often times, these self-conscious feelings may be a lifelong struggle that stems from genetics, and are detrimental to your self-confidence.
For women that have had a baby, pregnancy may have taken its toll on their breasts. Breast volume may actually decrease due to pregnancy. As your milk glands swelled in preparation to nurture your baby, fatty tissue may have been replaced, and after childbirth, those glands shrank back to normal, but left excess skin behind. Some women may find their breasts permanently reduced and cannot firm the skin through strength training exercises alone. This may greatly hinder your confidence, and worse, cause you to be self-conscious in an area of your body that you normally liked, or even loved.
If you felt self-conscious over your breasts all your life, or after having children, you are an ideal candidate for the breast implant (breast augmentation) procedure, which will help shape your breasts into proportionate contour, and to your personal liking. The breast implant procedure is commonly performed, and can lead to very natural looking results through careful implant size and shape selection. Cohesive silicone gel implants, also known as “gummy bear implants,” feel realistic, look natural, and most of all, are safe.
Other candidates for breast implants are women who have lost massive weight through bariatric weight loss surgery, such as the Gastric Sleeve, Lap-Band, or Gastric Bypass procedures. Losing a significant amount of weight in such a short period of time can leave women with excess skin in the breast area, leaving their breast size reduced. With breast implants, women can correct this effect of weight loss by restoring their breasts’ firmness and size, creating a natural-looking and proportionate figure. This procedure can be combined with a breast lift, called augmentation mammoplasty.
