What are the factors that make up a good candidate for breast augmentation surgery? Here are the three most important factors to consider if you’ve been thinking about breast implants:
- Are you at least 18 years old (or 21 years old for silicone implants)?
- Are you in good overall health?
- Are you a non-smoker?
- Is your weight stable?
- Do you believe your breasts are too small and that larger breasts would improve your self-confidence?
- Do you feel self-conscious about one breast being noticeably smaller than the other?
- Has having children or losing weight altered your breasts in a way you are not comfortable with?
- Do you have problem finding clothes that fit well because of a too-small bust compared to your hips?
If you answered yes to the first four questions, and any number of additional questions, you may be a good candidate for breast augmentation.
Another key factor in the overall success of any breast augmentation surgery is a patient who has realistic expectations.
