Several years ago a large international study of women from 40 countries indicated that only 29 percent of participants were happy with their breast size. This research showed that 48 percent of participants wanted larger breasts than they currently have. The study found that breast size dissatisfaction was associated with lower self-esteem and unhappiness with overall appearance. Wow! That’s a lot of women who feel they don’t look their best.

It’s no surprise that breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures. Many women feel it enhances their appearance and gives them a sexier body shape. For other women, breast augmentation corrects the problem of asymmetry, when the breasts are not the same size. Some women choose augmentation because they feel their breasts have lost fullness as a result of pregnancy, breast feeding, or significant weight loss. For all of these women, breast augmentation can bring about a personal transformation.

Recommended Implants

Dr. Cristina Keusch at Boca Raton Plastic Surgery Center recommends Natrelle® implants by Allergan, available in saline and silicone. She guides patients in choosing the best implant based on body structure, lifestyle factors, and personal preference. For implants to look natural, they need to be in the right proportion with the rest of the body. Patients will see sample implants during their consultation, so that they have a clear idea of how the final result will look and feel. Dr. Keusch will make recommendations that provide the most natural and balanced look.

Surgical Recovery

A special support bra will need to be worn during the recovery period. Patients will need to rest for the first few days and avoid all strenuous activity and heavy lifting. Since each woman’s body is unique, it may take several weeks or a few months for swelling to fully resolve and the implants to settle into their final position. Most patients can resume full activities at around two months post-surgery.

Choosing the Best Surgeon

Choosing a highly qualified breast surgeon is key to obtaining optimal results. Dr. Cristina Keusch is a Board Certified plastic surgeon who has been in practice since 1990.  She has been selected as a Castle Connolly Top Doctor since 2004 and has been honored as one of Castle Connolly’s Exceptional Women in Medicine for the past five years. Contact our office to schedule a breast augmentation consultation and explore your options.
