Find Out Whether Breast Augmentation Is Right for You
Deciding whether to pursue breast augmentation surgery can be a complex process. If you are like many women wanting to improve their appearance and achieve a more feminine figure, you want to know about the requirements for breast augmentation candidacy so you can make an informed decision. Dr. Bruce Hermann is an experienced plastic surgeon at the North Texas Breast & Plastic Surgery Center in Denton, TX. He takes great pride and satisfaction in providing his patients with all the information they need to decide if breast augmentation surgery is right for them. While there are some general requirements for this procedure, Dr. Hermann can sit down with you and determine whether breast augmentation suits your unique goals, concerns, and budget.
Who Can Benefit from Breast Augmentation?
There are several possible reasons why patients might consider breast augmentation surgery. Patients who can benefit from this procedure include those who:
- feel their breasts are too small.
- have lost volume in their breasts due to pregnancy, weight loss, or aging.
- have breasts that are asymmetrical in size or position.
- had a previous augmentation and are displeased with the results.
You can discuss your goals and concerns with Dr. Hermann during your initial consultation. He can determine whether this treatment can help you achieve your desired results.
Requirements for Surgery
Ideal patients for breast augmentation include those who:
- are healthy enough to undergo surgery
- are not pregnant or breastfeeding
- have a normal mammogram with no evidence of breast cancer
- have breasts that are fully developed
- are not taking any anticoagulants or other medications that make surgery inadvisable
- have realistic expectations about the outcome of their treatment
Patients should also be nonsmokers, as smoking interferes with healing and can increase the risk of complications. In addition, make sure you can take sufficient time off from work. Complete recovery after a breast augmentation can take up to a few weeks.
Your Initial Consultation
Your journey to a more striking and attractive bustline starts with a consultation with Dr. Hermann. He will carefully review your medical history and evaluate your health, lifestyle, habits, and expectations to better assess your candidacy for breast augmentation surgery.
You can rest assured that any recommendation Dr. Hermann makes—whether it is for or against surgery—reflects your best interests and not those of the doctor.
He will then present you with your options for implant type, size, profile, and placement and allow you to preview your anticipated results using the BodyLogic® system. This advanced technology provides the opportunity to visualize, in advance, how different breast implant sizes and shapes will look on you. During this visit, Dr. Hermann will also discuss how to prepare for breast augmentation surgery.
Your Interests Come First
Dr. Hermann takes great pride in focusing exclusively on the needs of his patients. Consequently, you can rest assured that any recommendation he makes—whether it is for or against surgery—reflects your best interests and not those of the doctor.
