Breast augmentation is an Orlando cosmetic surgery involving enlargement and shaping of the breasts, through insertion of saline solution or silicone gel implants. At Plastic Surgery Central Florida, we know that women may decide to undergo a breast augmentation procedure for many reasons, but the result is always a remarkable improvement in self-confidence and self-esteem. Studies indicate that after an augmentation, women report enhancements in physical health, appearance, social life, and sexual function. Additionally, they reported lasting happiness with their breast implants. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, breast augmentation is the most commonly performed cosmetic surgery today. With over 290,000 women receiving implants per year, there has been a 37% increase in the last ten years.
The most frequent grounds for pursuing augmentation are for aesthetic reasons, reconstruction, or revision of previous cosmetic surgeries. When breast augmentations are pursued for reconstructive purposes, they are highly effective for correcting abnormalities, as a result of trauma, disease, or genetics. Implants can even improve one’s appearance after injuries, and surgeries such as mastectomies. When pursued for aesthetic or revision purposes, breast augmentations can be the best way to improve self-confidence and satisfaction with one’s body. After an unsatisfactory cosmetic or reconstructive procedure, breast augmentation can fix any previously unsatisfactory results. Aesthetically, breast augmentation results in dramatically improved feelings of satisfaction with one’s appearance and body.
