Breast Augmentation is a surgical procedure performed to give you a more proportional figure. It is also commonly referred to as breast enlargement or breast enhancement. There are many reasons women consider breast augmentation but the principal reason is because they feel that their breasts do no match the rest of their body and that the procedure can positively affect their self image and confidence. It is common for women not to be happy with the way clothing fits in the chest area, which can have a negative effect on a woman’s self body image and sense of femininity. Insufficient breast volume can start right after puberty or may happen after pregnancy, breastfeeding or major weight loss. Pregnancy alone, with or without breastfeeding many times will cause breasts to lose volume and they never return to the size they once were. Breast enlargement surgery (breast augmentation) is a procedure that can regain your fullness and increase your self-confidence and self-esteem.
Weight loss also can result in the loss of fullness in your breasts. This can also be corrected with breast augmentation surgery. Commonly, after moderate to massive weight loss it will also be necessary for you to have a breast lift, which is also known as Mastopexy. This usually will be done at the same time as the breast augmentation procedure, which will result in larger, fuller breasts.

Breast Augmentation – Things for you to think about
The most important thing for you to think about is what your goals are with having this surgery. There are many common questions you should consider and we have listed some of them below.
1. What are your goals of having a Breast Augmentation?
2. Do you want to be larger or just fill out the upper part of your breasts?
3. Are your breasts uneven in size? Will breast implants make them more symmetrical?
4. Is your skin tight or loose? Age, weight gain and loss and pregnancy are some factors that make your skin loose.
5. How much breast tissue do you have? This can affect the placement of the breast implants.
6. Do your breasts sag? Will breast augmentation fix this or do you also need to consider a breast lift?
These are just a few of the questions you should discuss with Dr. Kayastha during your personal consultation with him.
