Questions about Breast Augmentation


How do I know if I am a good breast augmentation candidate?
If you are displeased with your breasts’ contour and/or size, are in good physical and mental health and have realistic expectations about what breast augmentation can offer, you should consult with Dr. Mandraccia about a possible breast augmentation.

Is it important for me to complete the child-bearing years before I consider breast augmentation surgery?
Completing the child-bearing years is important before undergoing any breast augmentation procedure. The reason for this is that implants can inhibit breastfeeding, and sagging and volume loss can occur after pregnancy and breastfeeding. Once these years are over, you can ensure that your enhancement surgery’s results will be long lasting.

Where should I have my implants situated--above or below the muscle?
Often, cosmetic surgeons find that the below-the-muscle positioning delivers a more natural-looking outcome. However, other factors such as the patient’s own preference, body type and degree of breast tissue will come into play when Dr. Mandraccia decides on the best breast implant placement.

What are the risks and complications associated with breast augmentation?
As with any surgery, breast augmentation carries with it some risks. Dr. Mandraccia talks with his patients at length prior to the procedure to cover the surgery in detail.
