One of the most popular and well-known options for surgical aesthetic enhancement is breast enlargement surgery. And yet there are a number of misconceptions and misunderstandings about the surgery itself and what it entails. Our team would like to take a few moments right now to go over the basics of breast augmentation surgery candidacy. To find out if you are an ideal candidate for breast implants, you’ll need to meet with a plastic surgeon for a personal consultation.
What is breast augmentation?
In basic terms, breast augmentation surgery involves the placement of breast implants in order to enhance the size, shape, and overall contour of the breasts. By doing so, many patients are also able to improve their overall figure as well.
General Candidacy for Breast Augmentation
In general, good candidates for breast augmentation surgery are women who are in good overall health and suffer from no conditions that would make surgery of any kind a risky proposition.
It’s important that patients have realistic expectations about the surgery and what it can achieve. It’s also important that patients are not coerced/pressured into making any sorts of decisions about surgery by others. Since it is your body, any decisions about surgical procedures, particularly elective/cosmetic ones, should be your choice and yours alone.
Breast Augmentation and Breast Size Enhancement
One of the most common reasons that women undergo breast augmentation surgery is to increase the size of their breasts. Breast implants can achieve this with great effectiveness, though we should note that bigger is not necessarily better and that your surgeon will help you make informed decisions about the size and shape of your breast implants.
Breast Augmentation and Breast Asymmetry
Another common reason that women decide to undergo this cosmetic plastic surgery procedure is to address asymmetry and unevenness of the breasts. Asymmetrical breasts can leave you feeling very self-conscious, so breast implants can be an important tool for overcoming this self-consciousness.
Combined Breast Augmentation and Breast Lift
It’s not uncommon for breast implants to be used during a breast lift surgery. This combined breast augmentation and lift surgery will help improve the perkiness of breasts that are drooping or sagging while also improving the overall size and contour of the breasts in the process.
Is breast augmentation the best option for me?
This is a decision that will really vary from patient to patient, which is why a consultation with a surgeon is so important. After learning more about the surgery and weighing all of your options, you may find that the surgery is not right for you or at least not right for the time being.
We’ll be sure to answer all questions that you may have and to address all of your concerns so that you can make an informed decision about your appearance and wellness.
