Am I a Candidate for Breast Augmentation?October 3, 2014
If your breasts leave you feeling self-conscious, you may be considering breast augmentation surgery. But with the dizzying number of options available, you may also be wondering whether or not you’re even a good candidate for the procedure. At Chevy Chase Plastic Surgery, we’re always happy to answer your questions about the aesthetic products and services we offer. Please call (877) 427-7888 today to schedule a consultation at our Washington DC area office.
Breast augmentation is one of the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures today. Women who wish to enhance their appearance have more breast implant options than ever before and can now choose from saline implants, silicone implants, and cohesive gel (“gummy bear”) implants.
While every patient is different, a good candidate for breast augmentation usually has:
- A desire for larger, firmer, or more symmetrical breasts
- Realistic expectations of what augmentation can and can’t do
- Generally good health
- The information necessary to make an informed decision
While the FDA limits breast implant candidates to those over the age of 18 for saline breast implants, those seeking silicone gel implants must be at least 22 years old. At Chevy Chase Plastic Surgery, we work with each of our patients to determine the right options for them.
