There are many advantages in choosing spring for your breast augmentation!
Breast augmentation alone is not always enough when it comes to achieving a rejuvenated and youthful bust line. While some women only want an increase in breast size and don’t need a lift, others will have improved breast shape and definition if a lift is also performed. Whereas a breast augmentation successfully enlarge the size of the breasts and restores lost fullness, a breast lift rebalances the skin of the breast to its volume and centers and resizes the nipple and areola.
A recent study published in the American Society of Plastic Surgeons’ medical journal, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, demonstrates a strong correlation between elective breast augmentation and a woman’s satisfaction and quality of life. At Midsota Plastic Surgeons, this comes as no surprise to our team of plastic surgeons, who, over their many years of practice, have seen the positive impact that a successful augmentation can have on a woman’s well-being.
