Female athletes who are considering breast implant surgery want to know how changing the size and shape of their breasts will impact their exercise routine. For a female athlete, this question is first and foremost in her mind.

For all women, no matter who they are, world-class athletes or not, the benefits of breast implants can serve to be both aesthetic and psychological. Many times, breast augmentations can help make women feel more self-confident, sexier and more feminine. Clothes will fit better, look better and even your sex life might improve.

There Are Choices To Be Made Before Breast Implant Surgery

breast augmentation is a procedure that is unique to you, and so are the results. You can decide to choose a more augmented look, which has a lot of fullness at the top, or you can opt for a natural look and choose something with more fullness at the bottom.

Women who work out still want to look feminine and a breast augmentation may be the way to achieve the desired look. There are a variety of options, to achieve different results. Clearly, breasts do not all look the same.

Athletes Add Unique Considerations To Breast Implant Surgery

Work closely with a board-certified plastic surgeon when making breast implant surgery decisions. The athlete’s choice regarding the size and the placement of the implant will matter greatly, and that decision must be thoroughly discussed with your surgeon. It is always a major consideration as to whether to place the implant above or below the pectoral muscle.

Because athletic women who get breast augmentation have little existing breast tissue, having implants above the muscle will sometimes make them look and feel less natural. However, placing them behind the muscle (submuscular placement) isn’t necessarily the best option either.

The right choice for you basically depends on your unique body and your desired goals. An experienced surgeon can help you find the right solution. If you are an athlete considering breast implant surgery, talk about your fitness routine with your surgeon. For many, a more feminine figure might be the ultimate goal, but the unique concerns of athletic women affect surgical decisions, such as implant placement and incision locations.
