breast implant candidates

There are a number of reasons women look to breast augmentation. Common concerns that may prompt an interest in breast implants include:

  • Small breast size
  • Loss of breast volume following weight loss, pregnancy or nursing
  • Asymmetrical breasts
  • Breast reconstruction following cancer removal

Breast augmentation can greatly improve the contours of your upper body, enhance the size and shape of your chest, produce symmetry, and provide a more womanly and voluptuous look. No matter what reason you may have for considering breast augmentation, board-certified Phoenix plastic surgeon Dr. Richard Brown can assess your body and help you determine if breast implants are right for you.


To be a good candidate for breast augmentation you should be:

  • A nonsmoker
  • In generally good health
  • Close to your ideal weight
  • Prepared for a surgical procedure
  • Willing to follow all of Dr. Brown’s postsurgical advice

You should also be fully aware of both the risks and benefits of breast augmentation. Making an informed decision requires careful consideration.


The best way to find out if you are a good candidate for breast implants is through a one-on-one consultation with Dr. Brown. Several things will need to be considered prior to the placement of your implants such as implant type, incision location, and implant placement. These things can impact the look, feel, and limitations of your implants and must be catered to meet your exact needs.

During your initial consultation, Dr. Brown will listen carefully to your concerns, fully assess your frame, and inform you of all of your options. Taking your time and working with an experienced breast surgeon like Dr. Brown are the best ways to make sure breast implants are right for you.
