Breast Augmentation Surgery Candidates

Breast Augmentation Surgery CandidatesMany women seek breast augmentation cosmetic surgery nowadays to improve their breast appearance. This surgery enables the development of more sensuous, voluptuous breasts by increasing the size of naturally small breasts, creating more symmetrical breasts, or making the breasts appear larger.

Sometimes women seek breast enhancement following a mastectomy to restore the appearance of their breasts along with their self-confidence. A skilled breast surgeon will carefully evaluate a woman as a candidate for breast enlargement surgery and provide her with in-depth information allowing her to make a judicious decision. 

Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matthias Solomon provides breast implant surgery to patients in Dallas, Frisco, Sherman, Texas, and surrounding locations. 

Reasons for Considering Breast Enhancement

During the pre-operative consultation, the surgeon will try to understand the woman’s reasons for seeking breast enhancement surgery. The candidate is the best person to truly know her reasons for seeking this procedure as well as identify the aspects of her breast appearance that she finds unattractive. Women usually undergo breast augmentation surgery for one or more of the following reasons:

  • Achieving a more voluptuous and attractive figure
  • Restoring fullness in the breasts following weight loss or pregnancy
  • Developing a more symmetrical breast appearance
  • Increasing the breast size in proportion to the rest of the body
  • Addressing birth defects in one or both breasts
  • Treating micromastia by enhancing the breast size
  • Reconstructing one or both breasts following a mastectomy

Ideal candidates for breast augmentation have reasonable expectations, a positive frame of mind, and clear cosmetic goals.

Medical Requirements

Breast augmentation is an invasive procedure, and the patient should be in good overall health for this surgery. The surgeon will assess the patient’s medical records in detail as well as understand her breast anatomy and skin elasticity in the breast region. Stemming from this, they may order specialized mammograms if necessary.

The patient should disclose all pertinent information about her present health condition to the surgeon to ensure her own safety. This will allow the surgeon to make the required changes to the breast enlargement surgical plan.

The patient should have stable and moderate body weight. They should also not suffer from any infections, cancerous, or pre-cancerous tissues in the breast region. She should also not be pregnant or breastfeeding. 

Lifestyle Requirements

The patient should stay adequately hydrated before breast augmentation surgery. In order to expedite the healing process, she should consume a balanced diet that is rich in lean proteins. The patient may consult a nutritionist for the best guidance on their diet.
