If you have been wondering whether you are a good candidate for a breast augmentation, we have the answers for you.

Here is what is required in order to be a good candidate:

Breast Augmentation Candidate

Physical Health:

To begin with, you need to be in great physical health. Not only is anaesthesia required in order to perform the procedure, you have to be sure that you will heal properly and are not suffering from any other underlying conditions. This will not only ensure the best results, but will make sure that you will remain healthy.

Not Breastfeeding:

Women who are currently pregnant or breastfeeding are not candidates for a breast augmentation procedure. Following pregnancy, if you are breastfeeding, you will need to wait until you have weaned and your breasts have gone down to a natural size. Depending on the placement of the implant, you should not have trouble breastfeeding in the future, after the implants have healed.

How You Feel:

You should also make sure that you are getting implants for the right reasons. The decision should be entirely your own, based on how you feel about your breasts. Common concerns that result in breast augmentation are asymmetrical breasts, sagging following weight loss, aging, child rearing, the shape of your breasts, or being dissatisfied with their small size. Breast augmentation will increase the size of smaller breasts and can even breasts out if they are not the same size.


If you have gone through a mastectomy, a breast implant is a great way to rebuild your breast and return it to a natural size. Reconstructive surgery can really help you recover from how you felt after your mastectomy.

Full Development:

You will need to confirm that you are the right age to receive a breast augmentation. Particularly young candidates will need to be fully developed before going through the process. If implants are received too early, you might be surprised about how much your breasts fill out when you have reached full development. This happens at different ages for different people so your doctor is really the best source to identify whether you are old enough to go through with this.
