Why Some Patients Regret Going Too Small

Breast augmentation continues to be one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the world and is selected by woman that want to add volume and shape to breasts they are dissatisfied with. Additionally, breast augmentation can also create a boost in self-confidence that is often even more valuable than their new appearance. Because of the procedure’s immense popularity, women now have more options to customize this treatment than ever before. However, one of the most important decisions women have to make when they choose to enhance their breasts is size and without proper guidance, this decision can lead to undesirable results.

What is the Number One Mistake that Women Make When Getting Breast Augmentation?

The decision to have breast augmentation is a huge deal for many patients, in fact, the decision itself may have been years in the making. Though some patients may want dramatically larger, more noticeable breasts, others choose a more conservative implant size. Unfair as it is, women can still face criticism for having even the smallest amount of plastic surgery, and many are afraid that going too large will make their breasts look unnatural or fake and weaken their self-image. Unfortunately, those that choose a smaller size often find themselves underwhelmed with the results.  Airing on the cautious side can have advantages when choosing an implant, however, implants that are too small can lead to a number of regrets. Issues with size can actually have a negative impact on the overall contour of the body. If the implants are too small, it can lead to the patient’s figure looking unbalanced by throwing off the ratio of breasts to hips.

How to Ensure You Love Your New Breast Size

When considering breast augmentation, patients should first determine what their long-term goals are and discuss them during their consultation. Usually, the number one goal of most women is to have a figure that is well proportioned and complementary to their body size and frame.

During the consultation, a thorough examination will be completed to ascertain your skin’s health and detailed measurements will be taken.
