Breast Implants in Athletes

Many athletic women are lean and consequently have small breasts. It is common for these women to feel as if breast implants might negatively impact their performance or enjoyment of their sport. However, that is a myth. In fact, there have been studies done that show there is no reduction in chest muscle strength or function. Modestly sized implants do not impact athletic performance. I have several marathon runners in my practice who love their breast implants. So, if you are athletic and would like enhancement of your breast size, you are still a good candidate for breast augmentation.
