VIDEO TRANSCRIPT: How does a woman know if she's a good candidate for breast augmentation? That really is determined by a number of factors.
If she is of relatively normal body weight for height, but feels that her breasts are small for her frame, she may be an excellent candidate. Women who are much heavier than their ideal weight may not achieve the aesthetic outcome that they desire, as the breasts are often fairly large but drooping in that situation, such that the aesthetic goal may not actually be attainable.
Women who have droopy breasts may still be good candidates for breast augmentation. However, the augmentation procedure may be combined with what's called a breast lift procedure. While a breast lift procedure alone will elevate nipple position and decrease the amount of drooping lower skin of the breast, it does not typically produce a long-term increase in upper pull volume without the addition of an implant, which is a breast augmentation.
