Do your breasts look and feel natural after breast augmentation?

Do your breasts look and feel natural after breast augmentation?

Absolutely, but...: Looking natural depends on the eye of the beholder. Breast implants are just like fashion accessories, most women pick what looks good on them! a natural feel depends on the a) size of the implant; b) silicone gel or saline; c) your own breast volume.

What if my breasts are asymmetrical after breast reduction? If i end up with asymmetrical breasts or nipples after breast reduction, can it be fixed? .

What if my breasts are asymmetrical after breast reduction? If i end up with asymmetrical breasts or nipples after breast reduction, can it be fixed?

.

I : I am always careful to point out to all of my patients that natural asymmetries exist in every woman's breasts. Your surgeon's goal is to achieve the very best symmetry possible, but there will likely be some degree of asymmetry present after surgery as well. Early after surgery, asymmetry may be the result of post-procedural swelling, and i advise waiting for several months before making a final judgement regarding the appearance and symmetry of your breasts. If an unacceptable degree of asymmetry persists, minor revisional procedures can certainly be performed to improve your cosmetic outcome. Some revisional procedures may be covered by your medical insurance. All the best, dr. Skourtis. ...Read more

It can be difficult to maintain fullness in the upper breast. Occasionally breast implants are indicated either at the same time or later. Restoring some of the lost volume may help. ...Read more
