Citron & Citron

Are you considering larger, fuller breasts in the New Year? More than 300,000 breast augmentation surgeries are performed each year in the United States, making it the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure. Utilizing the latest advancements in the industry, Dr. Citron can help you achieve the look and feel you desire.

While the results from breast augmentation can be extremely rewarding, it’s important to do your homework to determine whether this surgery is right for you.

Here are some criteria to see if you are a good candidate:

You are in good physical health

You will have a thorough consultation with Dr. Citron, discussing all medical concerns to determine if breast implant surgery is right for you at this time. You should also avoid smoking or drinking excessive amounts of alcohol.

You are in a healthy frame of mind and have realistic expectations.

Breast augmentation is a life-changing surgery that permanently alters your physical appearance, so it’s important to know it cannot fix body image issues or change your appearance entirely.

Your breasts appear “deflated” after significant weight loss or pregnancy.

Pregnancy and nursing as well as losing a lot of weight not related to pregnancy can change the shape of your breasts and they often lose volume and sag.

You have abnormally small breasts (macromastia)

If you feel your breasts are too small, breast implants can help you achieve a more proportioned shape.

One breast is larger than the other.

If your breasts aren’t the same shape or size due to puberty, trauma or hormonal changes, breast augmentation can help you achieve a symmetrical look.

You are doing this surgery for YOU

The decision to have a breast augmentation is highly personal, and you shouldn’t be getting it done because someone else is telling you to do so.

You have done your research and know the risks.

Breast augmentation surgery is generally considered safe, and breast implants are FDA-approved, but there are always risks with any surgery. You must be at least 18 years old to have saline implants and 22 years old to get silicone implants.
