What Is The Most Important Factor That Determines The Appearance Of Your Breasts After A Breast Augmentation?

Three Girlfriends Sitting On Steps Of Building

If you are considering a breast augmentation, you probably have an idea of what you want your breasts to look like afterward. Many women who come in for breast augmentation have reviewed in detail our gallery of breast augmentation before and after photos. It’s an interesting fact that women are far more likely to check out another woman’s breast than members of the opposite sex. To prove this point, many of my augmentation patients actually tell me, “Women are constantly looking at my breasts.”

You probably have seen women with attractive breasts in the media and on the streets. And, afterward, you try imagining yourself having those nice breasts. You may even bring pictures to your plastic surgeon showing him or her the “look” that you are aiming for. Is it possible for your surgeon to actually make your breasts look just like the ones in the photo?

The answer to that question is “Probably not.” Oh sure, we can get close with careful analysis and diligence, but each person’s breast qualities are unique. In fact, it’s rare to find a woman with two perfectly symmetrical breasts.

You may have guessed that the most important factor in determining your post-operation result is the unique anatomy that you have. Breasts that are saggy or perky, far apart or close-set, narrow or wide will all appear differently after a breast augmentation. That is why one of the best ways to get an idea of what you may look like after a breast augmentation is to find someone in my extensive before and after photo collection whose breasts look like yours do now.
