Who is a Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation Surgery?

Watch this video by Samuel Shatkin Jr., MD, a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in Buffalo, NY as he explains what scenarios would determine an ideal patient to undergo breast augmentation surgery.

The best candidate for breast augmentation surgery is someone that’s generally healthy and has a good knowledge and understanding of what the outcomes will be. Many patients come in and they’re not sure, and during the consultation we can help them understand exactly the procedures that we can perform, whether it be a breast augmentation with breast implants, a fat transfer to increase the size of the breast, or perhaps some patients just need some tightening of the breast skin from sagging that they may have achieved from weight loss or pregnancy.
