Many women want to change certain aspects of their body and modern science has given them the tools to do so. They can change the shape or size of their lips, change the appearance of their nose, or the shape of their breasts.

Breast augmentation is a popular cosmetic surgery, which can help you gain the desired breast shape and size. At Dr. Mario F. Bernier, we provide a wide range of surgeries ranging from breast augmentation to breast lift.

About Breast Augmentation

Cosmetic surgeons use the breast augmentation procedure to increase breast size and improve its shape. The process involves implanting a breast implant on the top of the muscle or under the muscle in the breast. The shell of the implants is made from a silicone material that is filled with a saline solution or silicone gel. I recommend the saline implants because they are safer than the silicone gel option.

The implant is inserted under the tissue, subpectoral muscle, or muscular fascia. Different insertion sites have different effects so the doctor will discuss all aspects of the procedure before you make your decision.

Why Should You Opt for Breast Augmentation?

Many patients hesitate to choose breast augmentation because they don’t understand the procedure and are worried about the side effects. Our doctor will explain everything in detail and answer any questions you might have regarding breast augmentation. Here’s a look at why you should consider this procedure:

Positive Impact on Self Confidence – Ideally, a person’s self-confidence shouldn’t rely on their appearance. But one can’t argue that appearance does play an important role in the way we feel about ourselves. Many women admit they experience a surge of confidence after an augmentation procedure. If you think you will feel better about yourself after breast augmentation, why not opt for it?

Balance of Hip and Chest Contours – No one has a perfectly symmetrical and proportionate body. Some women have wide hips and small breasts, which can create an imbalance in their figure. Increasing breast size can add a balanced and proportionate look to your body.

Correct Uneven Breasts – Many women have uneven breast sizes, where one breast is smaller than the other breast. Augmentation is an option to correct this problem. You can also choose to get implants on both breasts to ensure they match. The surgeon will use a smaller implant on the bigger breast to ensure the sizes remain the same.

Carry Different Clothing Styles – Some clothes don’t look good if you have smaller breasts but may look flattering with a fuller bosom. If you’re tired of being unable to carry the styles and dresses you love, breast augmentation can help. That will help fill out your figure and showcase the dresses well.

Restore Breast Shape After Pregnancy – Pregnancy can change your body in several ways. Breasts can grow in size, sag, or shrink after childbirth and after losing post-pregnancy weight. Breast augmentation with or without a breast lift can be a good choice for women that have shrunk by a couple of sizes; it can restore your breasts to their original shape and make them look fuller. Sometimes, a breast lift without implant will give the best result.

As you can see, there are many benefits of this surgery. Breast augmentation will improve the size and appearance of the breast, but it doesn’t correct sagging. Our doctor can perform a breast lift along with augmentation to counteract sagging. This procedure can be done at the same time as breast augmentation surgery.
