Find out if you are a candidate for Breast Augmentation in New Jersey

Breast Augmentation Lift

In New Jersey, breast augmentation is the most requested cosmetic procedure and it remains the most popular choice for plastic surgery worldwide. Every day, plenty of people decide that this is the right procedure for them, but what determines whether they can safely proceed, and how can they know if they’ll get the results they want?

Important Considerations for Your Plastic Surgeon

That’s right, not only do patients have a lot to consider before undergoing cosmetic surgery, but your New Jersey breast augmentation surgeon will have questions about your health, history and expectations. Before deciding whether to proceed, your surgeon may ask the following questions:

  • Does the patient have any significant past or present medical issues?
  • Does the patient have existing breast implants or previous breast surgery?
  • Is the patient an adult and capable of choosing a procedure independently and with full awareness of risks and considerations?
  • Does the patient understand the limitations of breast augmentation?
  • Is the patient in good mental, physical and emotional health?

People may choose to enlarge and reshape the breasts for a variety of reasons, including reconstruction of malformed, tuberous breasts, correction of dramatic asymmetry, reconstruction post-mastectomy, restoration after breastfeeding, adding volume in conjunction with a breast lift, or adding cleavage fullness and volume for small breasts. Undoubtedly, most BA patients find that their body confidence and self esteem improves after the procedure because they feel better about their proportions, about how they look in clothes and without clothes in intimate situations. This relatively small change can actually create a huge impact in one’s life.

Having said that, a plastic surgeon will have concerns if it seems that a potential patient believes breast enhancement will solve emotional/mental problems, fix a relationship or achieve some other, unrelated ideal. It’s important that an ideal candidate understand, while improving symmetry, shape and proportions can result in greater satisfaction with one’s appearance, body contouring surgery cannot fix deeper issues.

If an individual has recently been through a traumatic experience or is currently not mentally stable, the surgeon will decline to operate and recommend other medical help. If an individual has recently given birth or is currently breastfeeding, augmentation will have to wait roughly 4-6 months until the breasts have stopped producing milk and returned to a stable size and shape.

When is it safe to go ahead?

Ideal New Jersey breast augmentation patients have a good overall perception of their body and stable mental health. They do not have medical conditions which would impair healing or lead to rejection of an implant. Certain hormonal or steroid medications would need to be safely discontinued for a time. The patient should have a realistic understanding of what physical results can be achieved for their existing anatomy, including size and shape. The patient should be ready and willing to follow pre and post-operative instructions which ensure safety and great, long lasting results.

If you think you’d make a good BA candidate, take the next step and contact a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in this procedure. Dr. Gartner is a double board-certified plastic surgeon, and breast augmentation is one of his specialties. He’d love to meet you.
