If you would like bigger, shapelier breasts, breast augmentation is a safe and effective way to achieve that goal. However, not everyone is a good candidate for the procedure. It’s therefore essential to consult with a board certified plastic surgeon, to determine if you are a candidate for breast augmentation.
Benefits of breast augmentation
Breast augmentation can be very beneficial for women that feel self-conscious about the small size of their breasts. Patients that have undergone the procedure generally feel more confident and comfortable afterwards, and are inspired to take on new challenges.
Am I a good candidate for breast augmentation?
You are a good candidate for breast augmentation if you would like to:
- Restore the size and shape of your breasts after pregnancy. The breasts often lose volume and youthful contours after pregnancy and breastfeeding, but breast augmentation can restore their shape and fullness.
- Correct asymmetrical breasts. Asymmetrical breasts differ in shape and/or size, but there are breast augmentation techniques that can correct these variations.
- Enlarge naturally small breasts. If you are self-conscious about your breasts because they are very small or never developed fully, breast augmentation can enhance your breasts, and positively impact your overall well-being.
Candidates for breast augmentation should also be in good health, and have realistic expectations about what can be achieved with the procedure.
The decision to have breast augmentation is a personal one, which should be made after careful consideration of all the pros and cons of surgery.
