For many women, restoring their breasts to their youthful appearance can provide an immeasurable boost to self-esteem. While it can be daunting to take the first step, at Graper Cosmetic Surgery we carefully evaluate each patient’s specific needs to determine whether they are good candidates for breast augmentation, and can help you through the decision process.

While the choice to pursue this procedure is highly personal, it is helpful to understand some of the basic reasons why women seek it out.

Good Candidates for Breast Augmentation

Women with smaller breasts are often good candidates for breast augmentation if their breasts do not complement the rest of their body. In some cases, small breasts can make an entire body seem small, and in other cases they can focus attention disproportionately on other parts of the body.

Even women with small breasts who have proportional figures can benefit from augmentation to perk up their bosom and make their clothes feel better and appear more flattering.

New mothers are often good candidates for breast augmentation surgery. Women who have spent time breastfeeding often have a desire to have their breasts return to their “pre-baby” appearance.

Although the majority of women have asymmetrical breasts to some extent, in instances where the difference is pronounced, breast augmentation can correct the size discrepancy and restore a symmetrical appearance to the bosom.

Breast Augmentation vs Breast Lift

For women who want to improve the appearance of their breasts, the most basic choice is between breast augmentation and a breast lift.  Women who are unhappy with the size and shape of their breasts usually elect to have breast augmentation involving the use of implants, while women who are satisfied with their breast size, but desire to restore their breasts to a more youthful appearance often choose to have a breast lift.

During an initial office visit, we analyze key patient attributes: height, frame, overall proportions, skin elasticity, and breast size and shape, along with addressing all of the questions and concerns a patient might have.
