If you are unhappy with the size, shape, or overall profile of your breasts, you may be a candidate for breast augmentation. The best way to determine if breast augmentation is the ideal breast surgery option for you is to let our experienced Detroit cosmetic surgeon evaluate your needs in person.
To schedule personal consultation with Dr. Rifai to find out if you are a viable candidate for breast augmentation, call our Detroit office at (248) 723-9370 today.
Are You a Good Breast Augmentation Candidate?
While breast augmentation offers significant benefits for the right patients, not everyone is a viable candidate. Ideal breast augmentation candidates are generally women who:
- Are at least 18 years of age
- Have good overall health
- Are finished having children and are not currently pregnant or breastfeeding
- Are mentally and emotionally stable
- Have chosen to undergo breast surgery for the right reasons
- Have realistic expectations about what the procedure will accomplish
- Are well informed about the procedure, including its risks and limitations
If you are a viable candidate, sometimes Dr. Rifai may still recommend alternative breast surgery procedures, such as a breast lift instead of, or in combination with, a breast augmentation, to achieve optimal results.
Factors That Can Interfere With a Breast Augmentation
In addition to the qualifications that make you an ideal candidate, there are criteria that may indicate that you are not a good breast augmentation candidate. These include:
- Smoking – Smoking significantly reduces the amount of oxygen in your blood, heightening your risk of healing complications. You will need to quit before undergoing breast augmentation.
- Having an active infection anywhere in your body – You must be infection-free in order to safely undergo breast augmentation.
- Taking medications that may cause excessive bleeding – Dr. Rifai will review all of your current medications to make sure any potential problems are identified and avoided ahead of time.
In the end, the best way to find out if you are a good candidate for breast augmentation is to meet with Dr. Rifai at our office.
