Who is a candidate for breast augmentation? 
The nature of breast augmentation surgery makes this a truly personal choice which many patients must think about thoroughly before committing to. It is important to keep in mind that a breast augmentation should be done for you and you alone. Patients should be physically and medically healthy, not pregnant or nursing, and have fully developed breasts. Patients should have realistic expectations for their results after their augmentation. A good candidate for breast augmentation may have uneven or asymmetrical breasts or simply be dissatisfied that their breasts are too small, are not ideally shaped, or lack volume.

What can I expect after a breast augmentation? 
A breast augmentation is a serious surgical procedure with significant recovery times. Though every patient is different and experiences a different recovery period, most report that the initial pain associated with the procedure lasts about four days. After this time, you will probably need several weeks before the pain stops altogether and you return back to normal.

Breast Augmentation Surgery in Grand Rapids, MI 
Breast augmentation surgery is a powerful tool for improving confidence and self-esteem and can improve the appearance of your breasts and correct issues with fullness and symmetry. A breast augmentation is different from a breast lift, which treats issues like severe drooping or sagging. In some cases, these two procedures can be performed at the same time to both lift and fill out the breasts. Your doctor is your best source of information on these matters and a consultation can help you make the best decision for you.
