Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation has helped to restore self-confidence and reinforced a positive self-image for thousands of women. It is one of the most popular plastic surgery procedures for women across the country every single year.

While many women may feel they would like to improve the appearance of their breasts, this is a very personal decision that should not be rushed into. Some women may not be the best candidates for breast augmentation.

Common Reasons for Breast Augmentation

Some of the most common reasons to undergo breast augmentation include:

  • Small breasts
  • Sagging breasts
  • Asymmetrical breasts
  • Differently shaped breasts

The best candidates for breast augmentation are women who are:

  • In good physical health
  • Over the age of 18
  • Near their ideal weight
  • Non-smokers
  • Reasonably physically active
  • Emotionally healthy
  • Have realistic expectations

For women who are smokers, obese, or suffer from mental or psychological issues, breast augmentation may not be in your best interest. Women who are candidates should also understand the risks, as well as the healing process of breast augmentation.
