How to Tell if Breast Augmentation is Right for You

Posted December 27, 2011 in Breast Augmentation, by Dr. Fiorillo

There are a lot more women today, who are seriously considering procedures such as breast augmentation, breast implants, breast reduction, or something similar. Cosmetic surgeons in New York, New Jersey, and around the country are fielding more questions about what these types of procedures entail, and whether it’s a good idea for someone to undergo breast enhancement.

This is a helpful development. Plastic surgeons have a keen understanding of the fact that many people today are not completely satisfied with their current body shapes. In the past, a lot of individuals would just leave it at that and make do with the body shape that they had. While a good diet and sufficient exercise can help with weight loss, there are some things that they do not have much of an effect on. These include such things as breast enlargement, or more comprehensive changes such as mommy makeovers.

The growing awareness of and interest in cosmetic surgery by more people means that they are not willing to simply accept their current shape and state. They know that something can be done about it, and they turn to a plastic surgeon or cosmetic surgeon, such as the ones in our New York or New Jersey clinics, for further guidance. One of the things that we tell people who walk through our doors is that they need to take a close look at themselves, to see how close they can get to the ideal candidate for plastic surgery. Here are some of the factors that people need to consider.

The first thing is motivation. People need to have a clear understanding of what they want from the procedure. For example, some women may be more interested in increasing the size of their breasts. Other women may already be satisfied with their breast size, but may wish to achieve a better symmetry between their breasts, or in some other manner improve their shapes. It’s important to have a clear understanding of the motivation because this will determine what procedure will be undergone, and what the details of the procedure will be. For example, this information will help us to better decide if gummy bear breast implants are the best way to move forward for you.

Good physical health is another important factor to consider. Great strides have been made when it comes to cosmetic surgery, so that the recovery period after the procedure is shorter, and any discomfort or pain afterwards is minimized. That said, it’s still important to keep in mind that this is still surgery that we are talking about, so having a body that is in good physical health will be an important advantage. So take a look at your current physical health condition. Are there any illnesses or health issues which you are currently dealing with? If so, be sure to tell us about this. Dr. Fiorillo is ready to listen, and has the training and knowledge required to give you the appropriate advice on this matter. From there, the two of you can then identify how best to proceed.
