The weather outside may still be frightful, but we all know spring and summer are on the horizon, and with them, the anticipation of shedding winter layers. As preparation for spring and summer bodies begins, it’s the perfect time to consider a little body boost to reward yourself for weathering the winter chill: breast augmentation.
Breast augmentation, a procedure that enhances the size and shape of the breasts, can not only enhance physical appearance but also boost self-esteem and confidence, increase fashion options and have overall benefit on quality of life.
At Monarch, we want you to look and feel your best in the sunshine. Taking a personalized and intentional approach to breast augmentation, our focus is on creating a naturally beautiful look individually fit to each woman.
“Beauty is about proportion and balance,” Monarch plastic surgeon Dr. Keith Hodge says. “All women can be quite attractive with curves that are proportional, leading to more self-confidence and greater self-esteem.”
In fact, the era of the infamously unrealistic Barbie figure may be ending. While research into the “ideal” female body still reports a slim hourglass shape with larger breasts and a small waist, studies also show that balance is trending. For example, a recent University of Missouri-Kansas City study revealed that women’s perceptions of beauty are now leaning toward a more well-rounded, fit model than previous stick-thin looks.
Experts agree that artificial isn’t always the desired look today.
“I do think the fit body type is definitely in,” shares board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Ned Snyder of Austin. “[People] want things that seem natural.”
Along those lines, at Monarch we’ve launched a #PerfectYourProportions campaign, working closely with patients to achieve their desired, beautifully balanced results. As patients can testify, the approach pays off. According to one RealSelf user:
“I knew I wanted to choose a doctor who took the following into consideration: I wanted breasts that would fit my body and my proportions; I wanted a doctor who would listen to my concerns and answer my questions; I wanted to feel comfortable… It showed that Dr. Hodge looks to the patient’s body to determine the best option.”
“Unlike the three other surgeons, he didn't immediately recommend the largest size,” another RealSelf user states. “It was important to me to look proportional (i.e., I don't want to lead with my breasts). He patiently listened to all my goals and recommended three options based on my frame.”
