Am I Candidate for Breast Augmentation?

With more than 20 years of experience as a cosmetic surgeon, Dr. David A. Bottger offers expert advice to patients seeking breast augmentation in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. According to Dr. Bottger, a good breast augmentation candidate is a healthy woman who is at least 18 years of age.

When making the choice to undergo breast augmentation, it should always be for personal reasons and not for the approval of anyone else. Some reasons women decide to consider breast augmentation include:

  • Being uncomfortable with the shape of one or both breasts to due to asymmetry or abnormal development
  • Feeling dissatisfied with breasts that have lost shape and/or volume after pregnancy, weight loss or aging
  • Being self-conscious or unhappy about breasts that feel too small

Ideal candidates will have realistic expectations about what the procedure will accomplish and how it will affect their lives. Many patients find it helpful to review breast augmentation before and after photos during the decision-making process.

You might not be a good candidate if:

  • Your breasts are still developing
  • You have an active infection anywhere in your body
  • You are currently pregnant or breast-feeding
  • You have existing cancer or pre-cancer conditions that have not yet been adequately treated
