What-Are-the-Differences-Between-Shaped-and-Round-Implants-Dr-Rudy-CosciaIf you’re unhappy with the shape, size, or volume of your breasts – or you’d like to improve your breast-to-body ratio – then you might be considering a breast lift or breast augmentation.

But how do you know if you really need a breast lift or breast augmentation – or if you’re a good candidate?

  • You’ve recently had changes to the shape of your breast: Whether these changes result from pregnancy, weight loss, or the aging process, a breast lift can help improve the shape of your breasts and help ‘put things back where they belong.’ If you would also like to increase your size, a breast lift often can also be combined with a breast augmentation.
  • You’re dissatisfied with your chest size: If you’ve always felt self-conscious about the size of your breasts, a breast augmentation procedure might be a good choice for you.  You should have a general understanding of what size you would like to be.  Keep in mind that Dr. Correa may recommend something slightly different depending upon your anatomy and body proportions.
  • You have realistic expectations: Both a breast lift and a breast augmentation are major surgeries that require plenty of research and decision-making.  Therefore, it’s important for candidates to have healthy expectations for surgical outcomes.  It is also important to have healthy reasons for pursuing surgery – this should be something you are doing for yourself, because you desire these changes.
  • You are no longer breastfeeding: The best candidates for these procedures are women who are no longer breastfeeding. Ideally, candidates should not have immediate plans for additional childbearing.

If you’re interested in either a breast augmentation or a breast lift, schedule a consultation with Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Bryan Correa, at Correa Plastic Surgery in The Woodlands, TX (also serving the greater Houston metro area).  During your consultation, Dr. Correa will work with you to determine if you’re an ideal candidate for a breast augmentation or breast lift procedure.  He’ll also walk you through your implant options, including which type will best accomplish your goals.
