Women make the initial decision to undergo breast augmentation surgery for a variety of personal reasons. Breast augmentation is a procedure that is performed to increase breast size or restore lost volume, ideally allowing a woman to feel more confident and comfortable with her appearance.
Implants are not permanent and often require replacement in the course of one’s life. In addition, over time, the breast and implant appearance change and may look less aesthetic. Weight gain with aging may make larger implants desirable to maintain a balanced appearance. Occasionally, a woman may choose to have smaller implants placed.
If you have excessively large breasts, you know that they may be associated with chronic back, neck, and shoulder pain, as well as postural changes. Breast reduction surgery may be able to help you feel more comfortable and reduce the symptoms associated with very large, heavy breasts.
