Who Would Be a Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation?

Published on May 31, 2022 by

Although beauty trends come and go, breast augmentation has been one of the most performed plastic surgery procedures for many years. In fact, studies have shown that augmentation with implants has remained one of the most popular forms of plastic surgery throughout the pandemic as the lockdowns made recovery easier for many patients. While it’s still one of the cosmetic surgery procedures that patients are most interested in, more people seem to be expressing a preference for smaller and more naturally shaped implants that are more proportional and flattering for their figure—especially when compared to the supersized devices that were trendy in the mid-2000s. No matter their personal taste, many patients are curious about augmentation but are still unsure whether it’s right for them. If you’re still in the planning stage and haven’t booked your procedure as yet, it can seem a little intimidating at first. Arranging a consultation can seem overwhelming, given all the decisions you need to make, but it doesn’t have to be. See below for some signs that you may be an ideal candidate for breast implants from the Philadelphia area’s Dr. Scott Chapin.

You’re in Good Health

When it comes to any form of plastic surgery, it’s preferable that you’re in a good overall state of physical health without any active infections, untreated cancers, or other serious diseases. Be upfront with your surgeon about any medical issues you have during your consultation.

You’re Dissatisfied with Your Breast Size or Shape

Patients who make great candidates for breast augmentation include those whose breasts are natural small, flattened, elongated, asymmetrical, or don’t have the ideal amount of cleavage or volume.

You’re Ready for the Commitment

It might seem like a no-brainer, but before you decide to have this surgery, consider whether you’re prepared to put in the time and effort. You’ll need to take time for the consultation, the surgery itself, and the recovery after. There are also certain guidelines patients will need to follow for preparation and aftercare to avoid complications, along with monitoring implants for any complications that could arise in the future. It’s also very important to ask yourself whether you are prepared to undergo surgery. Many, many patients find that all of this is well worth the results, especially when they see their new figure in the mirror and enjoy a boost in self-confidence.
