Who are the Best Candidates for Breast Augmentation?
If you are wondering if you are a good candidate for a Breast Augmentation, you should have at least some of these characteristics:
- Bothered by the feeling that your breasts are too small
- Breasts are asymmetrical
- Dissatisfied with your breasts losing shape and volume after pregnancy, weight loss, or with aging
- Have realistic expectations
- Not currently pregnant or breastfeeding
- One or both breasts failed to develop normally or have an elongated shape
- Physically healthy
- Unhappy with the upper part of your breast appearing “empty”
- Your breasts are fully developed
Breast augmentation should only be considered after one’s breasts have been fully developed, but there is no age limitation for breast surgery later in life, as long as the patient’s health allows it.
What’s the First Step?
The first step in getting breast augmentation in Tampa is to schedule your Breast Augmentation consultation with Dr. Bhat. When you come into Ravive Plastic Surgery, you will be able to discuss your expectations for the procedure and have your body and breasts examined by Dr. Bhat. While performing her evaluation, she will take everything into account, including your body type and desired aesthetic. You will also be asked questions about your medical history and lifestyle, which not only provides more insight into your life but also helps avoid any unnecessary risks.
The next part is what most of our patients find to be the most fun, which is getting to choose the size and shape of their breast implant surgery themselves. You can see some before and after photos of actual patients, see mold examples of breast implant types, and listen to the pros and cons of each option. Once you and Dr. Bhat have agreed on the techniques, types of breast implants, and a few additional details, she will create your personalized surgical plan.
After you and Dr. Bhat agree on a surgical plan, our Patient Coordinator will be able to help you pick your surgery date, provide you with some important instructions to follow pre-surgery, and the total breast augmentation cost.
