Is breast augmentation right for you and your cosmetic goals?

Breast augmentation, or breast implants, is the second most popular cosmetic surgery after liposuction. Breast augmentation has been performed since the early 60s but has undoubtedly been perfected along the way as technology and surgical techniques have improved. If you are interested in turning to our Elmhurst, IL, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Alexandrina Saulis for breast augmentation, here’s what you should know about this popular surgical procedure and what makes someone an ideal candidate.

Reasons to Consider Breast Augmentation

It’s important to know your “why” for getting a breast augmentation and to discuss your goals and cosmetic wants with our Elmhurst, IL, plastic surgeon during your consultation. We must understand the results you are hoping to achieve through breast augmentation so we can determine if this is the right procedure for you. Breast augmentation is ideal for women looking to,

  • Improve breast symmetry and projection
  • Alter the shape or size of your breasts
  • Achieve fuller breasts
  • Improve volume loss after weight loss or pregnancy
  • Boost self-esteem and confidence in your appearance

You may also want to turn to breast augmentation to improve how you look and feel in your bras, bathing suits, dresses and clothing you love. A fuller bust line can help you fill out your favorite outfit in ways that make you feel more confident. Our Elmhurst, IL, plastic surgeon can tailor your procedure to meet your needs and address your unique concerns.

What You Need to Consider

Before undergoing breast augmentation surgery, it’s important to recognize that this is a permanent cosmetic procedure that requires recovery time, active participation and commitment from the patient to achieve their desired results. Here are some questions to ask yourself (and answer honestly) to help you determine if you’re ready to take the next steps toward a breast augmentation,

  • Am I prepared and ready to go through surgery?
  • Am I committed to the recovery process and following my doctor’s instructions?
  • Do I have realistic expectations about what I hope to achieve with a breast augmentation?
  • Am I prepared for the expense of this procedure? Have I talked with my plastic surgeon about payment options and upfront cost?
  • Do I have someone who can drive me home after surgery?
