Once you’ve settled on a plastic surgeon for your breast enhancement surgery, you’re probably wondering what to expect during your breast augmentation consultation. Your initial consultation is the perfect opportunity to find out more about the procedure. Be sure to prepare a list of questions to take along with you, so that you can make an informed decision about surgery.
During your breast augmentation consultation, you can expect to:
Have a physical examination
Your plastic surgeon will give you a complete medical check-up, which includes a breast exam. Your surgeon will evaluate the shape and size of your breasts, and make a note of characteristics such as skin laxity and the position of your nipples. He/she will also discuss and review your medical history to help determine your suitability as a candidate.
Discuss breast augmentation surgery
The consultation with your surgeon is your chance to ask all the questions you have about breast augmentation surgery. Take the time to find out about the type of anesthesia that will be used, as well as the surgical technique.
Also, be sure to verify the following:
- location of the incisions
- placement of the implants
- what to expect after surgery and extent of the recovery period
- risks and complications
- cost of the procedure
The type of implants to be used is a very important consideration. Breast implants are available in various sizes and shapes, so ask about the pros and cons of each.
It’s also a good idea to ask your plastic surgeon if you can see some ‘before’ and ‘after’ photos ofactual patients.
