Breast enhancement is typically viewed as a purely cosmetic procedure, but the truth is that there are lots of reasons related to health and wellness that women might consider getting breast implants as well. There are 4 common instances when women opt for breast surgery for health reasons.
Back or Neck Pain
For some women, very large breasts can lead to chronic back, neck and shoulder pain that interferes with performing normal daily activities. In this case, breast reduction surgery may be recommended to help alleviate these symptoms.*
Breast sagging can sometimes result in skin rashes, chafing or other signs of irritation. If this is a health concern for you, your cosmetic surgeon may recommend a breast lift or a combination breast lift and augmentation.
After a Pregnancy
Pregnancy and breastfeeding can cause changes to your body that can leave some women feeling frustrated or unhappy, which can negatively affect their overall well-being and quality of life. It’s not uncommon in these instances for women to consult with a cosmetic surgeon to see if they could be good candidates for breast enhancement.
Breast enhancement procedures are often included as part of a mommy makeover following pregnancy.
Following Significant Weight Loss
After achieving a significant weight loss goal, many women consider breast enhancement surgery to help raise and reshape deflated breasts as well as remove sagging or excess skin. Both men and women frequently consider post-weight loss body contouring as the final step in their weight loss journey.
No matter what your reason, health-related or otherwise, if you’re considering breast enhancement, schedule a consultation with an experienced cosmetic surgeon who focuses on these types of procedures to help you decide if cosmetic surgery could be right for you.
