Top 10 Reasons – Breast Augmentation

Monday, February 6th, 2012

TOP 10 REASONS women elect to get breast implants:

Breast augmentation is one of the most popular cosmetic surgeries performed by Dr. Castillo https://www.cosmeticplasticsurgery.com/cosmetic-surgeon/  in his state-of-the-art surgical facility, Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Clinic in Savoy (Champaign-Urbana area). We are often told by our Champaign, Illinois breast augmentation patients, Bloomington, Illinois breast augmentation patients and patients from the surrounding area that their lives have been truly enhanced by their decision to have breast enlargement. The following are the most popular reasons women elect to have breast augmentation.

1. Larger Breasts – Some women simply would like to have larger breasts. Many women express that small breasts creates a more masculine feeling and they desire to feel more feminine.
2. Volume loss – After child birth / breast feeding, many women experience volume loss and develop sagging breasts. Implants can help to restore their lost volume and position. An increasing number of women utilize breast augmentation as part of a “mommy make-over” to restore their body when they are finished having children.
3. To improve their body balance – Increasing the breast size is often all that is needed to balance out your body proportions.
4. To improve their self-confidence.
5. Breast asymmetry – When one breast is smaller than the other, breast augmentation is often used to equalize the breast size and shape.
6. After weight loss – Weight loss can create significant changes in the shape and size of your breasts. Implants can help to restore the shape and size.
7. Breast shape – Breast Implants can help create a fuller, round breast shape or a natural tear drop shape and increase your cleavage.
8.To increase clothing options Breast Deflation  – Breast augmentation will allow you to wear clothing styles that you were unable to wear prior to surgery.
9. Breast ptosis – Breast ptosis (sagging) occurs for a number of reasons, including age, pregnancy, breast feeding, weight loss, and excessive sun exposure. Implants can add volume or fullness to restore a more youthful look to an otherwise sagging breast.
10. Improve self-esteem– As women, we are our own worst critic. Having breasts that in some way make us feel less than adequate can have a large impact on our self-esteem.

Breast Asymmetry

Friday, June 10th, 2011

Not All Breasts Are Created Equal

Breast asymmetry is quite common, though the degree and patient perception of it varies.  Often patients are not aware of their asymmetry, they just recognize that they are unhappy with the appearance of their breasts.  Frequently women have one breast that is larger than the other breast or nipple that is positioned lower than the other.  Patient’s often share their stories of frustrations when searching for clothing that will fit properly without accentuating the asymmetry and the continual distress it causes them.

If breast asymmetry is so common, why does it bother us females so much if our breasts are not perfectly symmetrical?  Maybe as women, we just haven’t had as many opportunities to compare our breasts to the breasts of the average women unlike say… women living in other countries, like maybe…France, where breasts seem to be on display. Maybe it’s because we torture ourselves by thinking our partner is comparing our breasts imperfections to the perfectly perky, perfectly shaped, perfectly sized, perfectly air brushed breasts in magazines.  Maybe it is because we remember what our breasts looked like before children. Maybe it’s because we just want to be the best self we can be. The list could go on indefinitely I’m sure. Unfortunately, there isn’t much comfort to be found in the idea that there are lots of women facing the same imperfections.

Fortunately, Dr. Castillo has decades of experience in dealing with and developing solutions for this very problem.  For those of you who have not had the pleasure on meeting G.D. Castillo, M.D., “as a surgeon (and an individual) he is a breath of fresh air” as quoted by one of our patients.  I must agree!  He is a truly gifted surgeon with a compassionate, understanding, engaging bedside manner. Dr. Castillo’s goal is your goal: to create beautiful breasts that look and feel exactly as you envisioned them.

At Cosmetic Plastic Surgery Clinic, we offer options to address each type of asymmetry concern.

1.     Breast augmentation – This procedure may involve inserting a breast implant in one or both breasts, depending on the individual patient’s needs.

2.     Liposuction – Many times liposuction of the larger breast can be used to simply equal out the volume / size of your breasts without breast implants.

3.     Breast Reduction – This cosmetic surgery procedure can be used to reduce the size of one or both breasts to create breast symmetry.

4.     Breast Lift (Mastopexy) – This breast surgery is used improve breast ptosis (sagging) in one or both breasts, reshaping the breasts to create beautiful symmetrical breasts.

5.     Nipple Reduction or Nipple Augmentation – This cosmetic procedure can be used to increase, decrease or equalize the size and shape of the nipple and give balance to the breasts.

6.     A combination of one or more of the above breast surgeries is sometimes needed to correct the asymmetry in its entirety.
