Why Choose a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon
Choose a board-certified plastic surgeon and be confident you are in the care of a highly trained surgeon you can trust.
Breast augmentation has remained one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures across the globe for years. Not only has it become more widely accepted and relatively easily available, but plastic surgeons have also made great strides in the way they are able to lift and shape the breasts.
While the decision to get breast implants is highly personal and can be extremely rewarding, patients should always perform their due diligence in determining whether or not this procedure is a good fit for them and whether they can make for good candidates.
There are several criteria that patients should meet in order for a plastic surgeon to classify you as a good candidate for breast augmentation.
Generally speaking, anyone who is in reasonably good mental and physical health can be candidates for breast implants.
However, you are likely not a good candidate for this surgery if:
Though most women can qualify for breast implants, it's vitally important that you are open and honest with your surgeon during your consultation. Even if breast implants are not right for you, he or she may be able to recommend an alternative course of action to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
Ultimately, the criteria above are just general guidelines to help you get an idea of whether or not breast augmentation can be right for you. Because every person is unique, the final decision on pursuing a breast augmentation is between you and your doctor. Consulting with a board-certified plastic surgeon will allow you to get an honest medical opinion about your situation.
Breast augmentation is a highly personal choice that can help you to become a happier, sexier and more confident version of yourself, so don't hesitate to speak with a qualified plastic surgeon to find out if it's right for you and you're right for it.
