5 Reasons to Consider Breast Augmentation

Women’s breasts come in all shapes and sizes. However, you may not exactly like the way yours look, or how big or small they are. If you think upping your bra size or evening out your breasts could make you happier with your body, breast augmentation could be right for you.

At Sterling Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, PA, in Sarasota, Florida, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Mark Mathieson performs breast augmentation as one way to help women get the body image they desire.

5 reasons to consider breast augmentation

You might want to consider having your breasts augmented for one or more of the following reasons:


If you’ve always been self-conscious about how your body looks, having the breasts you’ve always wanted can be a game-changer! You can get breast augmentation to alter the size and/or shape of your breasts and even the placement of your nipples.


While your breast size or shape doesn’t make you a better (or worse) person, having the body you want can make you feel happier and surer of yourself and your self-worth. Breast implants can make your breasts bigger, rounder, or more symmetrical, so your appearance matches the picture you have of yourself in your mind.


Taking a cosmetic step toward the body you’ve always wanted can encourage you to take other steps, including getting fit and being healthier. Breast augmentation can be a catalyst that nudges you to change your entire life for the better. 


If you’ve had a lumpectomy or a mastectomy, you may wish for nothing more than to see your breasts restored to a natural appearance. Breast augmentation can be an important part of the reconstructive process, helping to repair damage done by surgery.

Natural look

Today’s breast augmentation procedures are designed to provide a look and feel that are as natural as possible. Dr. Mathieson lays out your options and shows you how different procedures can alter your appearance to help you decide how much change you want to make. 

Types of breast augmentation

Breast augmentation remains the most common type of plastic surgery. Augmentation may be achieved with implants, using saline or silicone, or by fat transfer from another part of your body. If you’re seeking breast augmentation as part of a reconstruction after a mastectomy, a surgical tissue flap procedure can also be performed that takes tissue and muscle from your abdominal section and uses it to replace lost breast tissue.
