It’s not enough to want to change the shape or size of your breasts. Before you can go through a breast augmentation procedure you need to decide if you’re really a good candidate for the process, or if you should look for alternative methods for changing the appearance of your bust line.

One of the first things you need to think about will be your age. You shouldn’t even think about getting any work done on your breasts if you haven’t passed your eighteenth birthday. Before that birthday you’re still growing, your body has lots of changes that it will go through. Instead of worry about the shape and size of your breasts, you should focus on school, fun, and just enjoying life. There will be plenty of time to explore the possibility of getting augmented breasts later. If you would like to get implants made out of silicone gel, you shouldn’t consider going through the surgery until you’ve passed your twenty-second birthday.
Your physical health dictates how good a candidate you will be for breast augmentation. There are several physical reasons that prevent some women from being able to go through the process. The biggest physical holdback is infection. It doesn’t matter what type of infection you might have at the moment, you need to put off the surgery before you go through with the surgery. You shouldn’t try to hide the infection from the plastic surgeon that will be performing the surgery. You will need to reschedule for a later date.

If you have cancer you shouldn’t plan on getting breast augmentation. The treatment for the cancer compromises your immune system, making it difficult for your body to heal properly after the surgery. If you’re currently fighting cancer, you should plan on using the breast augmentation surgery as a kind of reward, something that you can look forward to having done after you have completed the treatment process and licked your cancer.

If you have a child that you’re breast feeding, or if you’re currently pregnant, you will want to delay getting the breast implants until you’re child has gotten older and no longer relies on you for nourishment.

When you make an appointment to discuss the possibility of getting breast augmentation, you need to be honest about your lifestyle and health. The surgeon wants to make sure that you are ready for the surgery. By being up front about your health, you increase the odds of the surgery and healing process going smoothly and quickly. In addition to providing them with information about any medications you currently take, if you have any habits such as smoking or heavy alcohol consumption that could impact your ability to heal post-augmentation, and if have a history of being prone to infections or bleeding tendencies.
