Questions about Breast Augmentation

Should I be at My Ideal Weight before I Have a Breast Implant Procedure?

It’s important that you are as close to your ideal weight as possible before you have a breast implant procedure. This means not just being careful with how much weight you gain, but how much weight you lose.

If you have lost too much weight prior to your breast implant procedure, you may find your breasts droop or are reduced in size. If you have gained weight, your breasts may increase in size.

Because it can take some time between your consultation and the breast implant surgery, your weight may fluctuate. It is important that you pay attention to what you eat, or don’t eat, in order to maintain what you weighed at the time Dr. Ciaravino decided on the correct size of breast implants for you. By doing so, you can avoid less-than-perfect results after your breast implant surgery.

If you have any questions about weight changes prior to your breast implant procedure, please contact Houston, Texas experienced plastic surgeon Dr. Ciaravino today.

Can you be too old for Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation has become much more acceptable over the years. As a result, women from all walks of life are interested in getting breast implants. However, some of these women worry that breast implants are only for women in their 20s or 30s.

Dr. Ciaravino wants you to understand that there is no upper age limit when it comes to undergoing a breast implant procedure. The most important thing is that you are in good health. While it’s true that more women in their 20s and 30s are going to be healthier than women in their 50s and 60s, this is just a general rule.

There are plenty of older women who are in very good shape clear into their 70s. If these women decide they are interested in getting breast implants, and their health is very good, they would likely be candidates for breast augmentation.

If you are interested in getting breast implants, please contact Dr. Michael Ciaravino today to set up an initial consultation. Dr. Ciaravino serves the Houston, Texas area, as well as patients from around the world.
