Des Moines, Iowa Breast Augmentation Surgeon
For many women breast size is an important part of feeling good, desirable and even “normal”. Most women compare themselves to the advertised idea of beauty. A breast augmentation (clinically referred to as a Augmentation Mammoplasty) will alter the size, shape, firmness and projection of a women’s breasts with the addition of an implant. Having breast implants can greatly improve self-image and self-confidence for many women.
Why would I get a Breast Augmentation?
There are many reasons women get a breast augmentation. Some of the reasons you may consider breast implants are:
- You have a low self image due to your breast size.
- Your breasts have lost volume after weight loss, pregnancy or breast feeding.
- Your breasts lack substance or firmness.
- You wish to have better symmetry.
- You wish to reconstruct the breast after having lost one or both breasts due to a mastectomy or injury.
- You wish to correct a congenital chest wall deformity
A breast augmentation, however, does not correct sagging or pendulous breasts. In the case where a women wishes to correct the position of the breast and nipple while enhancing the size, a breast lift (or Breast Mastopexy) may be combined with a breast augmentation.
What’s best for me?
Breast augmentations are highly individualized as there many variations to the procedure. There are various determining factors that help you achieve your desired results. For example- What type of implant should you get, saline or silicone? What size can be used and still look “natural”? Should your implant be above or below the breast muscle? Some implant sizes are pre-determined at your consultation, while other implants are filled during the procedure. Dr. Bergman or Dr. Folkers will ultimately determine the appropriate size, type and placement best for you based on your breast structure, body type, and your goals. The Doctors take an extraordinary amount of care with each surgery they perform. During the surgery Dr. Bergman or Dr. Folkers raise each patient to a more upright sitting position. This extra step is done for many reasons, but mostly so they can be confident that your breasts will be as symmetrical as can be, therefore ultimately ensuring your happiness.
