Breast augmentation surgery is a procedure that can dramatically change your appearance. Therefore, it’s wise to research clinics thoroughly and extract information from your surgeon.
Here are ten questions to ask at your consultation:
Have you been a cosmetic surgeon for long?
Going under the knife is a life-changing decision, so you must find out information about your surgeon. Inquire how long they’ve been working in medicine and ask how many boob job operations they’ve carried out. If you don’t receive adequate answers, consider changing surgeons or ask to see their certificates. You have every right to know who is going to be operating on you.
Do you work with a specific type of implant?
It’s wise to ask your surgeon what type of implant he/she likes to use, so that you can get the boob job of your dreams. Ask them to explain their preference and discuss the pros and cons of each type. A medical expert should be able to talk you through both options and should give you clear, concise information.
Can anything go wrong?
Although it’s unpleasant to think about what could go wrong, it’s important to know the risks. It’s much better to go into the operation well-informed than to be left with unanswered questions. You can pull out of cosmetic surgery at any time, so make sure you’re happy with everything you hear.
Where will I be taken to recover?
If possible, take a look at the recovery rooms so you know where you’ll be taken post-surgery. Ask what will happen before, during and after the procedure and find out what monitors will be in each room. You’re bound to feel a bit panicky in the lead up to surgery but having the facts should help.
Do you recommend any vitamins or supplements?
When you go for your consultation, ask if you should buy any supplements to speed up recovery. If the surgeon recommends anything you can buy these before your surgery date and have one less thing to worry about.
Should I wear a special bra?
Many clinics recommend your wear a specialised post-surgery bra, as these provide the right amount of pressure and support. Ask where to buy this kind of lingerie and be well prepared for your breast enlargement.
Breast augmentation is both exciting and nerve-wracking, so make sure you’re well-informed.
