PATIENT GROUPS
Breast implants are indicated for patients seeking a larger bust size as a result of personal preference, underdevelopment as a result of birth deformity, acquired conditions that mitigate normal breast growth or cause reduction in size, cancer and precancerous conditions that may lead to removal of the breasts, occupation in the Adult Field, and in gender reassignment surgery. Body dysmorphic disorder that is diagnosed may be a contraindication for insertion of breast implants. A highly motivated patient who has realistic goals, and understands the benefits, risks, options, alternatives, and complications is best suited for breast augmentation on an elective basis. Insurance companies have been reluctant to provide benefits for breast augmentation in part due to the problems inherent to the original forms of silicone gel implants and that there is no medical and purely functional justification in women presenting for consideration.
