If you often wish that your breasts were larger, fuller or more shapely, breast augmentation surgery may be the right choice for you. Breast augmentation (also called augmentation mammaplasty) is a cosmetic procedure that uses implants to enlarge and shape the breasts. Your new look will bring you greater freedom with fashion and may give your self-image a boost as well.

Breast augmentation is not only a medical decision, it is a personal one. The perception we have of ourselves defines who we are and how we introduce ourselves to the world. Not every woman may feel the need for breast augmentation, but for many women it has afforded a state of great personal satisfaction and well-being. There are many options available today for the woman who decides that augmentation is right for her. The more you know about the procedure and the options involved, the better equipped you will be to make the decision that is best for you.

ANY ONE OF THE FOLLOWING FEELINGS OR CONDITIONS
MAY INDICATE THAT YOU ARE A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR
BREAST AUGMENTATION:
• you are bothered by the feeling that your breasts are too small
• weight loss has changed the size and shape of your breasts
• after having children, your breasts have become smaller and have lost their firmness
• dresses that fit well around your hips are often too large at the bustling
• one of your breasts is noticeably smaller than the other
• you feel self-conscious wearing a swimsuit or form-fitting top.

IN ADDITION, THERE ARE SEVERAL "MUSTS" FOR
ANYONE CONSIDERING BREAST AUGMENTATION:
• if you are a young woman, your breast development must be complete
• you must be emotionally mature and fully understand your own motivations for wanting the procedure (the best reason is to feel better about yourself)
• you must have realistic expectations, knowing that the procedure can bring improvement, but not perfection.
