Before you decide if you are a good candidate for breast augmentation surgery, you will need to schedule a consultation with your cosmetic surgeon. During this initial consultation, your doctor will help you choose between different types, shapes, and sizes of implants. He or she will also help you understand what you can expect following a breast augmentation surgery.
Even though breast augmentation surgery can help enhance the shape and volume of your breasts, it won’t prevent your breasts from sagging. If you are interested in correcting sagging, then you may want to consider undergoing a breast lift as well as a breast augmentation procedure. Even after breast augmentation, your breasts will continue to change in shape, size, and appearance with age. Additional weight loss or weight gain following surgery can also alter the appearance of your breast augmentation results.

Women who are diagnosed with breast cancer can either schedule a lumpectomy or a mastectomy to remove the cancerous cells. In a lumpectomy, only the cancerous tissue is removed and patients are required to undergo several radiation sessions. Instead, some women choose a mastectomy to remove their entire breast and lower their risk of developing breast cancer in the future.
In many cases, mastectomy affects women physically as well as psychologically. Some women suffer from low self-esteem or body image issues after their breasts are removed. For this reason, many mastectomy patients are referred to plastic surgeons to discuss breast reconstruction options. In this video, a mastectomy patient explains how breast reconstruction helped her regain a stronger body image.
