According to US surgeons Dr. Jerome H. Liu and Dr. Tom S. Liu the consistent increase in popularity of breast augmentation is evidence of continued patient satisfaction with the results of the procedure.
The plastic surgeons say, when a woman increases her breast size, she can often gain a more youthful appearance. In addition, breast enlargement can improve the overall proportion/balance of a woman’s figure, as well as provide a more contoured, sensual look to the breasts. However, the surgeons say breast augmentation can not only dramatically change a woman’s appearance but also significantly impact and improve self-esteem.
Many of the doctors’ breast augmentation patients are women who have lost some volume in their breasts due to pregnancy or breast-feeding, they say. Some of these women have experienced decreased levels of confidence and a lower self-image and seek to restore the breasts to their original size and shape.
At the same time, other patients consider the procedure because of simple dissatisfaction with the size of their breasts, or the desire to achieve fuller, more youthful breast contours. Overall, the doctors say breast augmentation can have both cosmetic and emotional benefits, helping patients add volume to the breasts and feel more confident about the way they look.
