Should I Get A Breast Augmentation?October 21, 2021
A Self-Evaluation On How You Feel About Yourself & Your Surgery Decision
The choice to undergo breast augmentation surgery isn’t one to be taken lightly, and we admire that you’re taking the time out to do your own research! There are a lot of questions that the Internet can answer for you, but there are certain facets – such as your mindset, your unique body, your individual goals – that aren’t addressed with a simple search or even hours of digging online.
Let’s take a closer look at a few criteria to ensure you’re a good candidate for this procedure and you have full confidence before you make that next move forward. This self-reflection will help prepare you for that first call with your breast augmentation expert!
You Feel You Need A Different Shape, Size & Firmness Level
Is your confidence deflated by the feeling that your breasts are sagging, flattened or just smaller than you prefer? If so, you’re likely a strong candidate for breast augmentation surgery. This procedure can also help you readjust for weight loss, life as a mom or other lifestyle changes.
You Feel Your Breasts Are Asymmetrical
Do you feel self-conscious because one breast is smaller than the other? Is bra shopping tougher than you think it should be? Breast augmentation can help directly address the symmetry issues you are facing.
You Have Realistic Expectations
Breast augmentations are designed to magnify your natural anatomy and highlight your features. And Drs. Donaldson and Sieffert? They’re two of the best in the world at what they do. However, perfection is hard to come by, and if you already have some structural imperfections, they may still show post-surgery. Widespread nipples, stretch marks, a barrel-shaped chest – these are all features that can persist.
You Are of Age & In Good Health
Individuals should be at least 18 years old before undergoing a breast augmentation. Getting this procedure done before the breast muscles have fully matured can damage long-term results. Because we look at an overall picture of health, we do not have a specific age ceiling for our patients!
“Good health” means that you have no active infections, untreated cancer or other serious medical conditions. Women who are pregnant or nursing should wait a bit longer before going through with a breast augmentation. Ideally, you are not a smoker or someone who drinks heavily.
We also work with you directly to ensure you’re in a proper mental state to make your final decision.
You Want To Feel Empowered & Confident
This is our ultimate goal: to help you become your most confident self! It is all about how you feel. Once you have fully recovered, we want you to be proud of who are and how you look in your skin. We routinely follow up to make sure you’re satisfied with your results.
We carry elements of this philosophy with us not just when discussing your goals, but also when it comes to our before and after photos philosophy. Browsing pictures of naked bodies that look nothing like yours won’t do this artistic surgical procedure justice. During your consultation, we will find before and after pictures that look closer to your body type and your desired figure!
Remember: This Is YOUR Decision
A good breast augmentation practice will never push you down a path or pressure you to make a decision you’re not 100% comfortable with. The surgeon should discuss your personal goals with you, one-on-one, before offering a solution that will get you to where you want to be!
