Breast augmentation is a surgical operation performed to enlarge the breasts for a number of reasons:
- To enhance the body contour of a woman, who for personal reasons feels that her breast size is too small.
- To correct a loss in breast volume after pregnancy.
- To balance breast size when there exists a significant difference between the size of the breasts.
- As a reconstructive technique for various conditions.
- Replacement of breast implants for medical or cosmetic reasons.
- Following significant weight loss, breasts have lost their full, perky shape. Breast augmentation gives them a fuller chest while they retain their smaller waistline and healthy weight.
Below, you’ll learn some of the considerations to make when deciding whether or not you’re a good candidate. We’ll focus on why some women are happy with breast augmentation, some specific situations where it may not be the right time, and the best age for getting this procedure.
Are You A Good Candidate For Breast Augmentation?
There are a number of reasons why women choose to get breast augmentation — everything from improving their self-image to having more confidence – but ultimately, you’re the best judge of whether or not breast augmentation is something that you would like to get.
There are some situations for which breast augmentation will not be a good fit. For instance, we recommend against breast augmentation if you’re pregnant, breast feeding, or you’re going through certain mental health issues. As always, speaking with a professional is best for determining whether or not the procedure is a good match with your current situation.
In the UK, the majority of surgeons will specify that you must be aged 18 or over in order to have breast enlargement surgery. There may be an exception to this rule in exceptional circumstances, but this would need to be discussed with your surgeon.
On the other end of the spectrum, Mr Ahmad does not operate on patients who are over 80 years old. Along with this, we’ll need to take your health into consideration. Aging can sometimes come with conditions that make breast augmentation more difficult. Once again, you may speak with a plastic surgeon about this.
As well, we may recommend a breast lift for patients on this end of the spectrum, as opposed to breast augmentation. It all depends on your unique situation.
