Our appearance is probably one of the most important things about us. This might not be ideal, but it’s the truth. We are a very visual culture and identify and evaluate the things around us by the way they look, even ourselves. The other thing about our culture though, is that it is getting increasingly easier to change what we don’t like about ourselves. We can change our appearance in many ways, but one of the most permanent and effective ways to change is with plastic surgery.
The most popular plastic surgery for American women is breast augmentation surgery, and within the last three years almost one million women have opted to undergo the procedure. Whether it’s part of a mommy makeover, reconstruction after mastectomy, or just to regain confidence with breast augmentation, one of the benefits of plastic surgery is that having breast implants can change your appearance to what you actually want it to be.
Since there are different types of breast implants, you can definitely find the ones that will work for you. One type is the saline implant, which about 30% of women choose. The other type are much more popular; the number of breast implant surgeries has tripled since silicon breast implants became available. Which is right for you will depend on the elasticity of your skin, body type, and breast anatomy.
One of the most obvious benefits of plastic surgery is that you can change what you don’t like about your body. If you are thinking of getting breast implants, you might want to consider consulting a plastic surgeon to discuss what is right for you.
