There’s no typical patient for breast augmentation – especially in a large and diverse city like Los Angeles – and there are nearly as many reasons as there are patients. That said, many factors can influence a decision to undergo breast augmentation such as restoring the body after pregnancy (it is commonly included in the suite of procedures referred to as a mommy makeover) or significant weight fluctuations. It is also often obtained by individuals who wish to make their breasts more symmetrical and/or proportional to the rest of their bodies. Some patients get them to “look more like themselves” while others are simply trying to look as fabulous as possible. And, yes, many performers and models obtain them for largely professional reasons.
