Are you a good candidate for breast augmentation?

The beauty of breast augmentation

Breast augmentation is recognized as one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures in the world. It had become more widely accepted,  fundamentally safer, and the top plastic surgeons have made great strides in the way they are able to lift and shape the breasts. The decision to get breast implants can be extremely rewarding. However, the decision is highly personal and patients should always consult with a board-certified plastic surgeon in determining whether or not this procedure is a good fit for them,  and whether they can make for good candidates. There are numerous reasons for a woman choosing breast augmentation. For example, she may be experiencing loss of volume after having children, or losing weight, or simply a desire for more symmetrical breasts. Breast augmentation can help a woman achieve the natural look she wants while also improving her self-confidence and figure.

Who is a good candidate for breast augmentation?

In order for a plastic surgeon to classify you as a good candidate for breast augmentation, you should be in good physical health. This means that you have no active infections, untreated cancer, or any type of serious illnesses. Every medical issue you have should be discussed with your surgeon so that he or she can help you decide whether or not breast implant surgery is a suitable solution for you. There is a high probability of correcting your problem if your breasts are sagging, flattened, elongated, asymmetrical or lacking cleavage. Most surgeons prefer that you do not smoke or consume significant amounts of alcohol. Breast augmentation is designed to permanently alter your appearance, so it’s crucial that you are in a healthy frame of mind when you decide on this surgery.

Maintaining your expectations

This is a surgery that will change how you look, but it cannot give you a wildly different appearance. Your plastic surgeon can help you to maintain realistic expectations and make an honest assessment of your goals. The surgery is considered safe, and implants are FDA-approved, as with any surgery, there are some risks which can be explained by your doctor. The FDA requires you to be at least 18 years old for saline implants and if you want silicone implants, the minimum age is 22. You should make the choice strictly for yourself, and because you believe it will increase your own confidence. You should never get cosmetic work done simply because someone else wants you to.
