Breast Procedures Minneapolis
Breasts are one of the most defining features of a woman’s figure and there is little doubt that the size, shape and appearance of the breasts influences how women feel about their bodies and is part of their self esteem. Factors such as genetics, weight gain or loss, pregnancy and aging tend to change the size, shape, and overall appearance of the breast. Breast enhancement surgery is as diverse in procedures and outcomes as women are in appearance: from reducing large breasts and enhancing small breasts to lifting sagging breasts and restoring a breast disfigured by or lost to disease.
Breast surgery is a highly emotional and fulfilling experience for many women. According to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ASAPS) www.surgery.org 524,000 women underwent breast augmentation, lift or reduction in 2009; additionally over 86,000 women chose breast reconstruction according to the American Society Plastic Surgeons www.plasticsurgery.org. Results for many of these women are a more positive body image and enhanced self-confidence.
There are many different options and choices. The first and most important is selecting a board-certified plastic surgeon you can trust and developing a good rapport so that you can openly discuss your concerns and particular needs throughout the process of consultation, surgery and aftercare.
While you may have an idea of what you want your ideal breast to look like, it is important to know that what nature has given you may influence the outcome you are hoping to achieve. Every woman’s breasts have unique attributes such as size, shape, nipple position and degree of sag.
