Is a breast augmentation right for me?
Hundreds of thousands of women undergo breast augmentation every year. It is one of the most frequently performed cosmetic surgery procedures, and many individuals who are interested in enhancing their breast appearance are great candidates!
Here are a couple things to consider when deciding if breast augmentation is a good fit for you:
Ideal breast augmentation candidates should be in good health to undergo surgery. At the time of your consultation, one of our board certified surgeons will go over all medical considerations and determine if the procedure you are considering is safe and appropriate.
Smokers must be willing to quit temporarily, as smoking reduces blood flow in your body and can compromise your ability to heal successfully after surgery. Additionally, women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should wait to have a cosmetic surgical procedure.
It is also very important to consider your reasons for wanting a cosmetic surgery procedure. Deciding to move forward with breast augmentation is very personal and should be approached with a healthy state of mind. You should do it for yourself because you feel it will increase your satisfaction with your appearance. Likewise, your expectations for what the procedure can achieve should be realistic.
If the following statements apply to your situation, breast augmentation may be an excellent solution:
- You feel as though your breasts are too small for your figure
- You feel unhappy with your breast shape and are interested in a more rounded shape
- You have noticed a loss of volume or firmness in your breast due to childbirth
- You have noticed asymmetry in your breasts
- Wearing swimsuits or low-cut shirts makes you feel self-conscious.
Whether you want to feel more confident, feminine, or enhance your self-esteem – knowing what you want to achieve and why can help you and your surgeon best achieve your cosmetic goals. Though most individuals are great candidates for breast augmentation, honesty is key! Being open and honest during your consultation can aid in achieving your goals. Even if this is not the right procedure for you, our surgeons may be able to suggest other ways to reach your cosmetic goals.
