Am I a Candidate for Breast Augmentation?

Maryland Plastic Surgeon serving Washington DC, & Virginia including Alexandria and Fairfax.


Advances in plastic surgery have made it possible for women to address a variety of issues with the size, shape, and balance of their breasts. Alexandria plastic surgeon Dr. Michael F. Chiaramonte can assess your suitability for breast augmentation and discuss the best method for achieving your aesthetic goals.

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure, so it’s important to be in good physical health. The breasts must also be fully developed, so prospective patients need to be at least age 18 to 22 or older.

Candidates for breast augmentation are unhappy with the appearance of their bust due to issues like:

  • Small size
  • Loss of shape with age, or after major life events like pregnancy or significant weight loss
  • Lack of fullness or volume
  • Asymmetry of the breasts
  • Abnormal development

If you’re considering breast augmentation, it’s critical to make an informed decision. Plastic surgery is a very personal process, so feeling comfortable and knowing what to expect are key criteria for candidacy, too.  

During your free consultation with our Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Chiaramonte will spend all the time you need to discuss your aesthetic goals, medical history, and concerns, as well as potential results and possible risks. Women with realistic expectations are often very pleased with the results of breast augmentation, and Dr. Chiaramonte can provide qualified recommendations on whether or not the procedure is right for you.
