How do I prepare for the breast augmentation consultation?
When preparing for a consultation concerning any corrections of the breasts or other parts of the body, the basic question is to decide what kind of change we want. The plastic surgery specialist who will consult you is a doctor. His role is to examine you, ask the relevant questions, answer any questions and accompany you throughout the choice and treatment process.
The surgeon will want to know whether you want to increase or reduce the size of your breasts, even them out, or rebuild a removed breast.
If you know an example of a person whose breasts are close to your ideal, you may bring a photograph of that person. This visual representation of your expectations can facilitate the consultation. However, you need to keep in mind that depending on your anatomy, an experienced surgeon will assess whether the presented result is achievable and whether it will live up to your expectations. Everyone’s body is different and there are many ways to achieve the optimal effect.
Keep in mind that even if your acquaintance or a public figure has chosen a certain procedure, specific type of implant or technique, that solution might not be equally effective in our case. It is the role of the specialist to reasonably assess the situation and recommend the optimal solution tailored to your needs and body.
During the consultation, the surgeon will inspect your chest and take measurements in different anatomical planes. Please wear comfortable clothing that is easy to remove and put back on.
The consultation is the best opportunity to ask question about the technique of the operation, the size and type of implant, as well as other medical issues that might be unclear. If you have many questions prior to the visit, write them down so you don’t forget anything. Also write down any medication or supplements you take on a regular basis, as well as any chronic diseases you may be suffering from. Some medication may need to be discontinued or have its dosage changed during, prior or after the procedure.
