2. What Causes the Need for Breast Implants?
The consideration for breast implants typically arises from a desire for aesthetic enhancement or as a reconstructive technique following mastectomy. Personal reasons for seeking breast implants include:
– Enhancing body proportion and self-image for individuals who believe their breasts are too small.
– Restoring symmetry when one breast is noticeably smaller than the other.
– Achieving breast fullness lost due to weight fluctuations, pregnancy, breastfeeding, or aging.
– Reconstructing breasts after surgery for breast cancer or other conditions affecting breast appearance.
While these are common motivations, the decision to undergo breast implant surgery should always be personal and made in consultation with a qualified plastic surgeon.
