Many female athletes have smaller breasts because of how lean they are. Athletic women who want a more balanced, proportionate figure sometimes hesitate to undergo breast augmentation out of fear that breast implants will negatively affect their performance. However, studies show that there is no reduction in the strength or function of chest muscles after breast augmentation. If you are concerned about keeping your competitive edge after breast augmentation, we have many different breast implant options available to meet your needs.
Silicone breast implants are usually the most popular option among our athletic patients, because they have a more natural look and feel in thin women who have less breast tissue. However, every woman’s body is different. Dr. Kleto will explain the pros and cons of each breast implant option in detail as they apply to your unique body type and lifestyle.
Because athletic women are in such strong cardiovascular health, they are often some of our fastest healing breast augmentation patients. Some athletes choose to combine breast augmentation with liposuction and other body contouring procedures to further enhance the fit appearance that they have worked so hard to maintain.
