Women choose to undergo breast augmentation in New York City for different reasons such as to enhance breast volume, correct breasts that differ in size and shape, and reshape the breasts and make them firmer and rounder. According to Italian researchers, breast implant surgery can improve posture through changes body mass and mood.

Breast Implant SurgeryAccording the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) breast augmentation ranked first among the top five cosmetic surgical procedures in 2016, with 290,000 procedures. Many women report the procedure improves image, confidence, and self-esteem. The study found that breast implants also help improve women’s posture.

The researchers studied postural changes in 48 patients who underwent breast augmentation. They analyzed factors such as position, centre of gravity, orientation, and center of pressure. The study found that breast augmentation surgery improved posture throughout the entire spine, that is, it resulted in a “retro positioning” of the upper part of the body through a slight retro positioning of the head and a compensatory anterior positioning of the pelvis.

While breast augmentation brings about a sudden change in body mass and improves posture, the researchers suggest that role played by psychological aspects is even more significant. It was found that women who perceive themselves as having underdeveloped breasts may stoop or slouch, trying to hide what they consider a deficiency. According to the study, the patient’s dissatisfaction disappears after breast augmentation surgery and her self-esteem increases because of her new breasts. This improves the way she carries herself, regardless of the changes in body mass due to the insertion of the implants.

There are some important things that women considering breast implant surgery should know. Implants come in different sizes and shapes such as tear-drop and round, and with textured and smooth surfaces. In addition to individual preferences, size selection is influenced by considerations such as chest size and the amount of breast tissue present. The greater the elasticity of your skin’s elasticity, the greater will be your ability to accommodate larger implants, without stretch marks. It’s important to set realistic goals. You cannot expect to go from a small cup size to a very large one at one go, though implant size can be increased over time.

In NYC, breast augmentation is available in AAAASF-accredited plastic surgery practices. If you are considering the procedure, choose a practice with well trained and experienced plastic surgeons. Such surgeons will provide customized treatment based on a thorough evaluation of your anatomy, breast tissue, and aesthetic goals and help you achieve attractive, natural-looking outcomes.
