Who Is an Ideal Candidate for Breast Augmentation?, Manhattan, New York

Many women are interested in having a breast augmentation but are not sure if they qualify. Whether you live with a chronic condition or are curious about your medical history, a consultation with a skilled surgeon will help you determine if the procedure is appropriate. Before you schedule your appointment, learn more about who may qualify and the questions you should ask your doctor.

A Guide to Breast Augmentation 

Qualified Candidates 

New York Breast AugmentationThe ideal patients for breast implants should be in good health and free of active illnesses or infections. They should also be at least 18 years old and have fully developed breasts. Some types of implants are only suitable for people who are 22 or older. Additionally, the candidate should be interested in having the surgery to enhance their appearance and self-confidence rather than to please another person.

Disqualifying Conditions 

Women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not have a breast augmentation. It is also not a good time to have the procedure if you receive a cancer or pre-cancer diagnosis. Additional medical conditions or drug allergies could also cause complications. Some patients with a history of previous breast surgeries or conditions that lead to excessive bleeding should talk to their doctor to weigh the benefits and risks. 

Surgeon Consultation

These guidelines should not be a substitute for a detailed, face-to-face consultation with a cosmetic surgeon. A conversation will help your doctor determine if prior surgeries, current health problems, or drug regimens make you a candidate or disqualify you from treatment. Ask your physician about how your health or medical history affects your risk of infection or long-term complications. During your visit, they will also describe the procedure in detail, so you know what to expect.
