Breast augmentation remains one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries among women year after year. Although the primary motivation for getting breast implants — namely, a curvier figure — may seem self-explanatory, here are some other reasons why women decide on breast augmentation as well.
1. To Correct Asymmetry
While nearly every woman has some degree of asymmetry between her breasts, the difference isn’t enough to be noticeable in most. When the size difference between breasts is dramatic, breast implants can improve symmetry even if you’re not interested in a significant size change. An implant can be placed in the smaller side only if you’re happy with the size of your breast, or implants of different sizes can be used to increase the size of both breasts while helping to create symmetry.
2. To Create a More Proportionate Figure
The coveted hourglass figure is the quintessential definition of sexy when it comes to a woman’s shape. Since most women aren’t born with these idyllic proportions, breast implants can help create more hourglass-like contours for women who are curvier below and smaller up top. Additionally, moms can get breast implants to restore volume lost through the process of pregnancy and breastfeeding, and women who’ve lost a lot of weight often get implants to replace volume that disappeared along with their extra pounds for a more proportionate look.
3. To Increase Cup Size
Of course, the most common reason women want breast implants is that they’re unhappy with the size of their breasts. If you’ve always felt self-conscious about having a more petite figure, breast implants can boost your self-image right along with your cup size.
