Are You a Good Candidate For Breast Augmentation?

Many women would desire to have Breast Augmentation, but not all are good candidates for this procedure. The best candidates are women who have all the information, fully understand what the surgery involves and what are the limitations of the surgery, and who have a realistic expectation.  They meet the qualifications for a consultation.

Breast Augmentation can improve the appearance of your breasts, but should not be used as a means to improve your overall life, or to make a bad relationship better. Women should only consider undergoing Breast Augmentation for themselves and not at someone else’s urging.

Besides fundamentally improving confidence, self-esteem and body image, common reasons for Breast Augmentation are:

  1. Small breasts
  2. Asymmetrical breasts
  3. Drooping or sagging breasts after pregnancy and breastfeeding
  4. Changes in breast size or shape due to weight loss
  5. Reconstruction after surgery to treat breast cancer
  6. Cosmetic improvements after breast reconstruction

Patients who are not good candidates for Breast Augmentation:

  1. You have had previous radiation therapy
  2. You are under 18 years-old
  3. You do not fully understand Breast Augmentation surgery and/or breast implant procedures
  4. You do not have realistic expectations about Breast Augmentation surgery
  5. You are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have an infection

During a consultation with Dr. Jugenburg, he will assess the current appearance of your breasts, your reasons for wanting surgery, and your expectations in order to determine the best way forward for you.
