Is breast augmentation worth it? Our Portland, OR-based team knows patients often ponder this question when they’re thinking of having cosmetic surgery to enhance the size and shape of their breasts.

Breast augmentation—also known as augmentation mammoplasty—is a surgical procedure that involves increasing the size and enhancing the shape of the breasts. Over the years, breast augmentation has become one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries worldwide.

While the decision to undergo any surgical procedure should be carefully considered, there are numerous cosmetic, physical, and psychological benefits associated with breast augmentation—and several compelling reasons why many women find this form of cosmetic surgery to be worth it.

If you’re still unsure whether breast augmentation with implants is the right choice for you, check out these three major reasons why this procedure is so popular.

  1. It Enhances Breast Size and Volume

Larger breasts are often associated with beauty, youth, and femininity. The placement of implants improves the fullness of the breasts, which can be beneficial for women who are born with naturally small breasts or whose breasts have lost fullness due to weight fluctuations, pregnancy, aging, or other factors. Moreover, breast augmentation can create better overall body proportions and balance, enhancing the natural curves and silhouette.

  1. It Can Boost Your Confidence and Self-Esteem

One of the major reasons why this procedure is worth it to many patients is because it can give patients a major self-esteem boost. Some women feel very self-conscious or less attractive because of the size and shape of their breasts. Breast augmentation can give you a new sense of self and newfound confidence.

  1. Clothes May Fit You Better

It can be difficult to find clothes that fit if you can’t fill them out in the bust area. Breast augmentation with implants will alter your proportions, which opens up a whole new world of clothing options for some patients. Achieving a fuller and more balanced bust can make it easier to find well-fitting clothes that flatter the body shape. Clothes that may not have looked as appealing before can now complement the enhanced breasts, allowing women to feel more comfortable and confident in their clothing choices.
