Are You a Good Candidate?

  • In good overall health
  • Stable weight
  • Good psychological health
  • Has realistic expectations

You must be willing and able to follow Dr. Kleto’s preoperative and postoperative instructions to the letter to ensure a safe surgery and healthy outcome, minimizing the risk of complications. You also need someone who can drive you home, stay with you, and help you out for at least 24 hours after your procedure.

Is it the Right Time in Life for You?

You must be at least 18 years old. Barring any health issues, you are never too old for breast enlargement. The best time in life is very personal and depends on several factors.

If you are planning to have children in the near future, you may want to wait until after you have had your child. You should wait until you have completed breast feeding and you’re your weight has stabilized. Breast implants pose no danger to your baby, but pregnancy can drastically change your breasts.

Similarly, if you are anticipating significant weight loss, you should wait until you have reached your goal and your weight has stabilized.

You also need to consider whether your current lifestyle allows you to take the time you need to rest and recover after breast enlargement surgery, and whether it is financially feasible for you at this time.

Is Breast Enlargement the Right Procedure?

Some women discover that the results they are after are better achieved with a breast lift or a combination of breast lift and breast enlargement. If you have sagging breast, breast lift an restore their lift and firmness, and may be the better choice for you.
