Breast enlargement procedures are broken down into 2 basic categories, surgical augmentation and non-surgical enhancement. These categories are further broken into smaller sub-categories detailing the variety of practices used to achieve the augmentation result. Breast enlargement has a long and interesting historical past and continues to be one of the most popular of all cosmetic surgery procedures today.
This commentary discusses all the possible methods of achieving larger breasts within the modern aesthetic medical industry.
Conservative Breast Enlargement Procedures
Many women are not ready to commit to surgical augmentation for a variety of reasons. Some are fearful of the surgery itself and others are worried about potential health risks from breast implants placed in their bodies.
Still other women are concerned about negative societal attitude or other external motivations not to undergo surgery.
For many women, the choice simply comes down to a matter of finance, since surgical breast enlargement can be a very expensive proposition. For these women, non-surgical methods might be a good place to start in order to achieve the look they desire without the permanence, cost or cultural judgments often associated with breast augmentation surgery.
Remember that the results of non-surgical enhancement are never going to come close to surgical augmentation. Many products and methods are simply ineffective, temporary or even dangerous. However, non-surgical modalities can be a good option for some women, as long as they choose their treatments intelligently.
Operative Breast Enlargement Procedures
Cosmetic breast augmentation surgery has become the savior for many women suffering with perceived or actual breast abnormalities. The emotional anguish experienced by these women can lead to a variety of detrimental mental states and behaviors. Living inside a body which you hate can be an experience that is impossible to imagine, unless you have endured it yourself.
Issues stemming from breast size, shape, asymmetry, pigmentation, ptosis or any other physical condition which can be perceived as unaesthetic, can make life a living hell for women who are particularly conscious of the body image they project.
Breast augmentation surgery can correct these perceived physical weaknesses in the body, but more importantly, it can correct the underlying painful emotional issues leading to a happier and more fulfilling life.
While it is common for some women to say, “love yourself the way you are”, it is easier said than done for the millions of women with body dysmorphic issues, low self confidence and general feelings of self consciousness because of their perceived problematic breasts.
Committing to a Breast Enlargement Procedure
Achieving the body you truly dream about is not a superficial desire. If your physical form is incredibly meaningful to you, who is to say that creating the perfect body is any less noble than creating the perfect mind?
Education sculpts the mind and is considered a true pursuit of excellence in every culture on the planet. Plastic surgery, like exercise and proper diet, sculpts the physical body, which is the very temple housing the logical mind and emotional self. The body is no less important than the mind or the spirit, and in fact, is part of the trinity of all humanity: Mind-Body-Spirit.
Each is important and codependent upon the others for support and structure.
Do not let anyone take away your goals of achieving a desired body or desirable breasts. Remember that this life belongs to you and improvements in your body will reap numerous rewards in your mind and spirit.
