Having breast augmentation surgery can improve your confidence and quality of life, giving you the shape you've always wanted. Breast augmentation surgery is a major cosmetic procedure, however, meaning it is costly and also requires a significant amount of recovery time. It's important when making such a big decision about your body to choose the best cosmetic surgeon for you. Here are a few tips to help guide your consultation appointments:
Have Photos Ready to Share
Your surgeon will have before and after photos of their work to share with you. But before that discussion, it's a good idea to show your surgeon photos of breasts you especially like and think would look great on your frame. These can be photos of celebrities or models, but they should be of a similar height and body type to you. This will help your surgeon get an idea right away of the type of size and shape you are most interested in.
You will most likely strip down to a hospital gown, possibly more than once, during your consultation appointment. This is so that your surgeon can evaluate your current breast size and shape and take measurements. Your appointment will be easier and faster if you wear comfortable clothes that are easy to take on and off, such as sweat pants and a t-shirt.
Plan to Ask Questions and Take Notes
Your consultation is a great time to have all of your questions answered. You can find online examples of important questions to ask your breast augmentation plastic surgeon. Plan to take notes with a pen and paper or in the notes app on your phone so you can review the answers afterward.
Bring a Top to Wear With Sizers
At your consultation, your surgeon will have you try on a variety of sizers, which are models of breast implants to see which sizes and shapes most appeal to you. You may want to bring a form-fitting top, or a few different styles of tops (such as a button-down, a turtleneck, and a tank top) to try on with the sizers. This will give you an accurate idea of what your implants will look like when you're clothes.
If you are ready to take the leap and have breast augmentation surgery, it's a good idea to start with a consultation. Following these tips will help you make the most out of it so you can choose the best possible surgeon.
