Austin-Weston specializes in breast enhancement surgery, including breast implants, breast augmentation, breast lifts and breast reductions for Northern Virginia, Maryland & Washington, DC.

Breast augmentation is a big decision. Women who are considering breast augmentation should be in good general health with a solid exercise routine and a balanced diet.

This surgery can help women improve the appearance of breasts that have been affected by:

  • Weight fluctuations
  • Asymmetrical development
  • Loss of volume
  • Aging
  • Pregnancy

Breast augmentation can bring your breasts into ideal proportions with the rest of your body, but it is not a magical cure-all. However, it is an ideal way to help you achieve a more appealing upper body.

Realistic Expectations

As with any plastic surgical procedure, having realistic expectations is key when considering breast augmentation. This procedure can restore volume, produce balance, enhance cleavage, and expand clothing options. It cannot provide a quick fix for deeper body image issues.

Our breast surgeons will work closely with you during your initial consultation to ensure you are emotionally prepared for the results of breast augmentation. Many women find this procedure enhances self-esteem, but breast augmentation should only be chosen to improve specific concerns about the appearance of your breasts, not to address generalized psychological discomfort about your body.

Be Prepared for Recovery

Another consideration is healing time and final results. Recovery from breast augmentation takes time, and if you are unable to give your body sufficient time to rest, this procedure may not be best for you. Other considerations include things that may impact the appearance of your breasts such as future plans for having children. Finally, make sure you feel the benefits outweigh risks of breast augmentation.

Request Consultation

The best way to determine your candidacy for breast augmentation is to schedule a personal consultation with one of our experienced surgeons.
