The Female Issue of Small Breasts

The Female Issue of Small Breasts 

Breasts are, undoubtedly, one of the most feminine traits with more symbolic significance. Besides all the significance they imply, the current canon of beauty has made them the center of all the attention. There is not a free fact that breast augmentation is one of the most demanded plastic surgery not only in United States but in general cosmetic surgery. Volume augmentation, silicone implants or saline water are not weird terms for anyone. Life shows that women don’t feel good with small breasts. 

Many sociological studies try to uncover the relationship between breast size and the (high or low) level of self-esteem, social acceptance or success. Several professionals have done some research to these issues and although literature is abundant, we cannot speak for sure why women are concerned about the size of their breasts. A lot of women choose each year breast surgery in the United States and the number keeps growing considerably since 2012 according to the American Association of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS according to its acronym in English). 

Small breasts: A Problem?

Small breasts are not a problem at all. Breasts size is not a medical but aesthetic issue. Although sometimes, some too large breasts can cause health problems such as back pain, neck and shoulders, small breasts are not a medical problem. Still, we know the importance of aesthetics nowadays so many women decide to increase their breasts. It is a matter of self-esteem and the possibility to decide how we want to see us.

What procedures are used to increase small breasts?

For small breasts the most common procedure is breast augmentation although this can be done by following different paths. The best known is breast augmentation with implants. The implants can be silicone or saline, depending on the preference of each woman. Another method to increase the volume of small breasts is increasing them with body fat, that is to say, fat transfer.

Each of these methods has its particular way of making the incision and increase the volume, although the technique depends not only on this but also on other factors such as the characteristics of each patient. Each woman is unique and, of course, her breasts too. There are different types of breast and this will also have an influence on the technique chosen by the surgeon. 

This procedure is a combination of two techniques, the first, is performed as a traditional liposuction, by removing unwanted fat in areas such as the abdomen, hips or thighs. That fat is subjected to an optimization process for using in next technique, the second one consists of the injection of optimized fat in breasts to give the desired volume.
