This will be the first in a four blog series giving you all the information you need to know about breast augmentation.
When looking to improve their image, many women seek out breast augmentation. Riverside and Hemet hopefuls are looking to finally feel satisfied in their own bodies and develop a size that meets their expectations. Others wish to bring balance to breasts that are not completely symmetrical. Some are also interested in restoring their natural breast volume which may have decreased as a result of pregnancy, weight loss or aging.
For breast augmentation, Riverside women need to discuss their candidacy with their plastic surgeon. Dr. Eichenberg at the Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center expressed that good candidates for this procedure include those who are bothered by the feeling that their breasts are too small. A patient must be emotionally mature and understand her own motivations for wanting this procedure. Realistic expectations are also important and one must understand that the procedure can bring improvement but not perfection. This is a surgery that a woman does for herself, not for someone else.
There are other considerations as well when reviewing candidacy. It is important that a woman be healthy enough to undergo elective surgery. If there are complications, health problems could put them at risk during surgery or recovery. Women currently breastfeeding must wait until after they have weaned their child. Although breast augmentation before or after child birth will not disrupt your ability to breast feed, the recovery period will.
If you’re interested in breast augmentation, Hemet and Riverside patients can explore their options with medical professionals in the area. To prepare for your initial consultation, Dr. Eichenberg suggests that you visit your general practitioner to discuss your overall health to see if your body is in appropriate shape for an elective procedure. This will help move the process forward faster. At the Renuance Cosmetic Surgery Center, we post a form that helps us better understand your goals and your medical history.
