Here at MP Plastic Surgery, we believe that every woman is beautiful in her own way, and that no one should undergo breast augmentation surgery at the behest of another. If breast augmentation appeals to you, make sure it’s because you want it to look and feel your best, not because of pressure or expectations from any other source.
That being said, breast augmentation can be a transformative procedure designed to make your body look and feel the way it was always intended. The reasons can be numerous, but as long as they come from your wishes and needs, then the options exist to fit them. If you’ve thought about it and decided that you want to undergo the surgery, the next step is to determine if you’re a good candidate for the procedure. Every woman is different, and the doctor can discuss the specifics that fit your body and needs. However, a few general guidelines can give you a good sense of whether the procedure is a good fit for you.
1: Good Health Overall
Good health means maintaining a steady weight without yo-yoing, and keeping yourself in reasonably good shape. Patients should also not be a smokers or engage in similar unhealthy practices.
2: Stretched Skin
Stretching of the skin on your breasts can occur for any number of reasons, from advancing age to genetic issues to becoming a mother. Your areolas may become unduly enlarged as well, increasing the sense that your skin has stretched farther than it should.
3. Misshapen Breasts
Time can cause your breasts to lose their natural shape: sagging and feeling droopier than you’d like. Eventually, you may wish to turn to breast augmentation simply to restore them to their normal, natural shape. In particular, if your nipples fall beneath the breast crease, then breast augmentation may be what you need.
4. Misaligned Breasts
In some cases, one breast may drop lower than the other one, leading to an unbalanced look and a feeling of increased awkwardness overall. In these cases, not only will breast augmentation correct the discrepancy, but restore your confidence and security in your body to boot.
5. Downward Pointing Breasts
No matter what shape or size, the nipples of your breasts should point forward. If they point downward towards the ground, breast augmentation surgery can be used to restore them to a natural appearance.
6. Mastectomy or Damage
If your breasts have been injured in an accident or you have undergone a mastectomy sometime in the past, then a breast augmentation procedure can restore your body to its natural shape: improving your balance, your figure and the self confidence that earlier injuries may have removed.
