We all know there is a lot you can do with hair and makeup.  But, did you ever consider that there is a lot you can do with your breasts?

If you think your breasts are too small, you’re not alone.  In 2012, according to the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), Americans spent more than $1 billion on breast augmentation surgeries.  If you’re considering implants, here are a few pearls of wisdom:

  • Do not ask for overly-large breast implants – If your implants are too big for you, you can permanently damage your breast tissue and affect your ribs.
  • Do not expect your augmented breasts to look like the breasts of your favorite actress; leave the pictures at home when you have your consultation.  Your ideal breast size will be determined by your personal measurements, including rib cage size, breast width and other factors that Dr. Magassy of Plastic Surgery Associates, PC, conveniently located in Northern Virginia.
  • It is important to understand that your implants will not lift your breasts.  Only a breast lift will achieve that result.
  • There are many different ways to augment the breast.  During your consultation, I will prescribe the most effective technique and the one that will best work for you.

If you are considering breast augmentation with breast implants.  Talk with Dr. Magassy, located in McLean, VA to achieve the most natural-looking appearance possible.
