Breast augmentation smaller refers to the surgery to remove current breast implants and to replace them with smaller implants. Patients who desire breast augmentation smaller are typically tired of their more generous breast size. Patients seeking breast augmentation are usually older and have experienced the discomfort that comes with having larger breast implants.
While you liked voluptuous breasts achieved with larger implants that were enticing in your twenties, you may realize in your forties, fifties, and sixties that they are a hindrance. Patients seeking breast augmentation are always counseled to choose an implant that will provide them proportional breast mounds rather than top-heavy breasts. A smaller set of ladies may desire breast augmentation smaller surgery if they are extreme athletes who feel that their large implants are limiting their performance. A final reason why patients might desire to undergo breast augmentation smaller surgery is that their breasts have started sagging.
When your breasts start sagging, it will make the weight of your implants feel even heavier. This is because sagging breasts will cause even more torque on the neck and upper back even though the implants have remained the same size. If you have noticed that your breasts are feeling heavier than usual because they are sagging, then you may consider having a breast lift simultaneously with your smaller implant replacement. In fact, if you are willing to go significantly smaller, you may choose to have your implants removed altogether with no replacements but rather a breast lift only. Interestingly, the breast lift technique used to lift up your sagging breasts differs depending on whether you want to eliminate your implants are want to replace your implants.
If you are considering breast augmentation smaller surgery, you will require a consultation in order to complete a breast sizing session. Following breast sizing session, you will have a better idea whether you will desire to replace your implant with a smaller one or whether you may wish to do without an implant altogether.
