You may be at your ideal weight. The rest of the package could meet your expectations, but you simply aren’t happy with your breasts. You could be a good candidate for a breast augmentation procedure, a cosmetic enhancement that can give you permanent results when other options fall short.

Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation?

When it comes to breast augmentation, most women want a larger bust. They’re not satisfied with the size that they have naturally.

This especially holds true after considerable weight loss or repeated pregnancies. The breasts lose their volume, firmness, and shape.

In other cases, women have small breasts and want a more pronounced bust. Changes in the shape of the breast are also possible through augmentation. In some cases, a woman’s breasts may not be evenly balanced.

If any of these situations apply to you, breast augmentation could be an appealing solution.

Who is Not a Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation?

If you need to lose weight, breast augmentation surgery should be postponed until you reach your goal. Otherwise, your breasts will undergo changes in appearance and you may not be happy with your augmentation results.

If you have any serious health conditions, you may not be eligible for a breast augmentation procedure. Smoking can cause complications and interfere with the recovery process. 

What to Expect During Breast Augmentation Surgery

Breast augmentation surgery is usually an outpatient procedure. General anesthesia is typically used during the procedure.

You have several options during the procedure itself. The surgeon can make an incision in the armpit, beneath your breasts, or around the areola prior to implant placement.

You can choose from silicone or saline implants and will find that there are different shapes for implants as well. Inflatable implants allow you to choose the volume you would like for your implant after your procedure has been completed.

Your procedure will be tailored to suit your preferences.
