Is Breast Augmentation Right for Me?

Untitled 2 1

You’ve decided: you’re tired of wishing your breasts were larger, fuller…more shapely—and it’s time to resolve this issue once and for all! But is breast augmentation surgery right for you? Here we’ll take a look at who is a good candidate for a breast enhancement at Revalla Plastic Surgery & Medical Aesthetics.

You Want to Take a Big Step Forward

Let’s get the obvious out of the way: If you’d like to increase the size, or round-out the shape of your breasts, then an augmentation procedure is right for you. Whether it’s because you’ve always had smaller breasts or you want an fuller bust to balance your body proportions, breast enhancement surgery can give your figure (and your confidence!) the boost you’re looking for. And with modern advancements in implants and insertion techniques, the results of a breast augmentation have never been so natural-looking or feeling.

You’re in Good Health

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure that can put your body under a lot of stress. That’s why it’s critically important that you’re in overall good health before undergoing an augmentation. If you suffer from a major medical condition or get sick prior to surgery, you’ll have to wait until you’ve been given a clean bill of health. Good candidates don’t smoke either. Smoking cigarettes can lead to a number of complications both during the procedure and throughout the recovery process. And you’ll want to give yourself the best chance at healing properly and quickly.

You Have the Time to Recover

Speaking of recovery, the right candidates for breast augmentation can take all of the necessary time to recuperate. It’s vital that you are able to take the appropriate period away from your demanding career, busy family, exercise regimen or whatever is important to you in order to allow the treated tissue to mend and accept your new implants. It’s also key that you’re able to follow all of Dr. Hunsicker’s post-op instructions. Prior to your surgery, her team will provide you with detailed guidelines on the do’s and don’ts during the recovery process. Think of it this way: The overall success of your breast augmentation procedure will depend on how well it heals.

You Understand the Limits of a Breast Augmentation

Finally, good candidates for breast augmentation have realistic expectations as to what this surgery can accomplish for them. The reality is, a breast enhancement procedure can only do so much. There are certain aspects that a breast enlargement alone will not address. For instance, it will not change the position of the breasts on the torso or correct some instances of asymmetry between the two breasts. It won’t do anything to address the nipples, areolae, or stretch marks. Any loose, sagging skin that can cause droopiness will have to be corrected with a concurrent breast lift. Understanding this can help to make your breast augmentation procedure as successful as possible.
