Breast augmentation is one of the most popular and desired cosmetic procedures in the U.S. today. It is especially popular with women who believe their breasts are too small. Others who often undergo breast augmentation are those whose breasts are changing due to various factors, such as age.
In addition to being widely accepted today, this cosmetic procedure is easily available, as well. Cosmetic surgeons are also making great strides in the way they shape and lift breasts. The decision to undergo this type of surgery is a highly personal one. It can be very rewarding; however, you still need to perform your due diligence to determine whether it is a good fit for you.
This surgical cosmetic procedure, however, is not the right choice for everyone. It is important to determine whether it is right for you and whether you are a good candidate for the procedure. If you are okay with the size and shape of your breast, there is no reason to undergo the procedure. If you think the procedure will leave you feeling better about your body, you need to speak to a qualified cosmetic surgeon. He/she will help you determine whether you are a good candidate.
Generally, patients considering undergoing this procedure should be in good physical health. Good candidates should not have any chronic health problems that would affect how they respond to anesthesia or how well they heal. Additionally, they should not have any rashes or infections near their breasts. The ideal candidate should also have realistic expectations about what the procedure can accomplish.
There is a good chance that you are a good candidate if your breasts are asymmetrical, sagging, lacking in volume, elongated, or flattened. Essentially, if the size and look of your breasts bother you, you might be a prime candidate for breast augmentation. Pregnancy, breastfeeding, or weight loss may affect the size and shape of your breasts. Breast augmentation is a great way to address these problems.
Other criteria that you should meet in order to qualify as a good candidate for breast augmentation include:
· One or both of your breasts did not develop normally.
· You refrain from smoking or consuming too much alcohol.
· You understand that the procedure is strictly for yourself, and you believe it will increase your self-confidence and happiness.
· Since the results are permanent, you should have a healthy mindset when you decide to undergo breast augmentation.
· You understand the rewards as well as the potential risks.
· You are willing and able to rest properly and recover after the surgery.
· You have fully-developed breasts.
Only you and your cosmetic surgeon can determine whether it is the right thing to do. It is a highly personal decision that you should take very seriously. You may not be a good candidate if you are breastfeeding or pregnant, or if you recently stopped breastfeeding. If you have an undiagnosed breast condition or an abnormal mammogram, this procedure is not good for you.
