How can breast implants improve self-esteem for St. Louis women?

The best candidates for breast augmentation also see the greatest boost in self-esteem resulting from the procedure. Why? They are healthy, well-informed women who already have a positive self-image. In addition, they typically share the following characteristics:

  • They are emotionally stable and physically healthy.
  • They have clear, rational reasons for wanting breast implants.
  • They feel dissatisfied with their current breast appearance and excited about the prospect of breast implants.
  • They have realistic expectations about what breast augmentation can and cannot achieve, including its effect on their self-esteem.
  • They understand the risks and are willing to assume responsibility for pre- and post-operative care.
  • They accept that breast implants require follow-up visits and will eventually need to be replaced.
