Breast enlargement is an operation to increase the size of the breasts. This is usually achieved by placing an artificial implant under the skin or muscle of the chest. Breast enlargement surgery is a procedure that has become increasingly common amongst many women, and people have this surgery for a number of reasons. Many opt for breast enlargement surgery simply as a matter of personal taste. They may feel uncomfortable because they feel that their bust is too small, and in a society where a big bust line seems to be the in thing they are prepared to go the extra mile to compete. Some women opt for breast enlargement surgery because they want to go into a particular profession, such as modeling, exotic dancing, etc. and they feel that a larger bust will help. Others have breast enlargement surgery for less superficial reasons, perhaps due to differently sized breasts or to correct the breast volume after pregnancy.
Reasons for breast enlargement
Aesthetic or cosmetic reasons for breast enlargement include:
Feeling that the breasts are simply too small or out of proportion
Loss of breast volume after pregnancy
Difference in size between the two breasts
Breast size that has reduced after losing weight
Breast enlargement is usually done under general anesthetic and may be performed as a day case, without the need for an overnight stay in hospital.
It is important to remember that breast enlargement does involve surgery, and any surgery involves an element of risk. Although this procedure is performed every day and usually without problems, there are no guarantees with any type of surgery. There are risks regarding the results of the surgery for instance, the result may not be all you expected, even after paying out a large sum of money. In addition, there are more serious risks, such as infections, hardening, swelling, and scarring.
