As you anticipate the outcome of breast augmentation, keep your expectations realistic.

Breast augmentation can change the size and shape of your breasts. The surgery might even improve your body image and self-esteem. If you're looking for perfection, however, you might be disappointed.

Also, remember that your breasts will continue to age after augmentation. Weight gain or weight loss might change the way your breasts look, too. If you become dissatisfied with the appearance of your breasts, you might need a revision operation to correct these issues.
