The breasts are an important attribute of female beauty. They are a symbol of fertility, attractiveness and desire. Many women are not completely happy with the size and shape of their breasts, particularly when the contours of their bust change due to pregnancy, breast-feeding, weight fluctuation or the menopause. As they age, a woman’s breasts tend to droop, losing some of their roundness and fullness. The desire for corrective breast surgery may also stem from a congenital malformation, however. For many women, the size or shape of their breasts is not only a question of their figure but also an essential part of their self-worth. Their attitude to their own body and ultimately their sexuality may be severely impaired by breasts they consider to be too small or not firm enough, or if their breasts are asymmetrical. Today women who are unhappy with the size or shape of their breasts have many options for changing them and bringing their personal perception into line with their physical appearance. Harmonious, natural-looking breast correction is very achievable using today’s surgical techniques and breast implants.
