IS A “BOOB JOB” AUGMENTATION?

No Matter What You Call It, You Can Enhance Your Breast Size and Shape with Breast Augmentation in the Milwaukee and Madison Area

With breast augmentation—commonly referred to by patients as a “boob job”—in the Milwaukee and Madison area, plastic surgeon Dr. Maida Parkins can increase the size of breasts that are naturally small, restore volume lost to time or weight loss, improve the roundness of the breasts, correct asymmetry of the breasts, and more. While the popular term “boob job” may be a bit reductive, the procedure remains a highly effective, safe, and common way for patients to improve their self-image and confidence—especially when performed by a highly trained, experienced, and talented plastic surgeon.

What Is a “Boob Job” and What Are Its Benefits?

Some women may feel less feminine or attractive due to naturally having smaller breasts or losing volume over time. Smaller breasts can also make it a challenge to find clothes that fit properly.

Cosmetic surgery that’s performed to increase the size of the breasts is called breast augmentation or a boob job. Calling it a boob job doesn’t change the fact that it can have many benefits, including increasing the fullness or projection of the breasts, improving the balance of the upper and lower body, improving the way clothing fits, rebuilding the breasts after various types of conditions, and boosting your self-confidence. There are two main types of so-caled boob jobs: fat transfer breast augmentation and breast implants. Saline implants or silicone implants (sometimes called fake breasts, even though the results look natural and real) can be inserted into the breast pockets to provide volume. Other patients opt for fat transfer to increase volume.

Wondering about cost? Has a friend suggested looking into boob job prices? Dr. Parkins and Dr. Boehm will explain everything patients need to know about preparation, procedure, breast augmentation post-op care, the “cost of a boob job,” and more.

Who Is a Good Candidate for a So-Called “Boob Job?”

Since the surgeries are the same thing—just going by different names—the ideal candidates for a “boob job” are the same as ideal candidates for breast augmentation: Patients who are physically healthy, are not pregnant or breastfeeding, maintain realistic expectations, and have fully developed breasts. Patients considering the procedure may be bothered because they feel that their breasts are too small or that their breasts have lost their volume or shape after pregnancy or weight fluctuations. They may also want to add fullness to the upper area of the breasts or feel like their breasts are asymmetrical or elongated. Note that breast augmentation can’t correct severe drooping of the breasts, which is best handled with a breast lift.

Is a Subtle, Natural Look from Breast Augmentation Possible?

Many patients are hoping for a lowkey or subtle natural enhancement of the breasts without a more exaggerated, cartoonish appearance from a boob job. They may feel like getting a good boob job means getting one that looks real. For anyone wondering about this, know that it’s indeed possible to have a smaller, natural-looking boob job. Dr. Parkins will evaluate many factors including your height, build, skin quality, skin elasticity, and the amount of natural breast tissue you have to determine which type of implants will look the most natural for your breast augmentation surgery.

Dr. Parkins and Dr. Boehm can also use certain techniques to achieve a softer, more subtle appearance for individuals who would prefer a small or mini “boob job.” Under-the-muscle placement, for example, creates a more natural, gradual looking slope at the top of the breasts. Other options include smaller implants, fat transfer breast augmentation, and silicone or highly form stable silicone (gummy bear) implants.

Which Other Cosmetic Surgery Strategies Can Enhance Your Body Shape?

A boob job is focused on increasing the size of the breasts with what some people may call “boob implants,” but there are also other types of cosmetic surgery available for the breasts. For those wanting to restore a perkier, more youthful, and elevated appearance to the breasts by addressing sagging skin, a breast lift may be the most effective way of doing so. While some patients want to add volume to the breasts with a “boob job,” others may want to reduce large breasts and they can do so with a breast reduction

As for the rest of the body, a tummy tuck can restore a slimmer, flatter, and more toned abdominal area. Liposuction reduces resistant pockets of fat on certain areas of the body for patients who have “problem areas” and want to sculpt slimmer contours. These procedures pair well with breast augmentation so that the entire body appears naturally proportional.
