During your breast augmentation consultation, the doctor will also determine if you are a good candidate for breast augmentation. Good candidates for breast augmentation are women over the age of 18 (or 22 for those considering silicone implants) who have fully developed breasts and are dissatisfied by their bust shape, size or symmetry.
Women with aging breasts may also undergo augmentation, often in conjunction with a breast lift. Patients should be non-smokers, in good health, and understand the risks and benefits of the procedure. Patients should not only be physically healthy, but also have healthy expectations for the outcome of the surgery.
