Things to Consider Before a Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation surgery is the number one most popular cosmetic procedure in the U.S. to date, so it is no wonder that so many women are interested in learning more about it. Like any form of surgery, a breast augmentation is a big decision and should not be taken lightly. Read on for some things to consider before booking your breast augmentation surgery at Heartland Plastic & Hand Surgery.

Your Reasons for wanting the procedure

The first thing you should consider before breast augmentation surgery is your reasons for wanting the procedure. Be sure that your decision to undergo this surgery is for personal reasons, and not to fit an ideal or to impress someone else, as this can be destructive to your self-confidence. Be sure that your decision will benefit you are your wellbeing before anything else.

Are you a Candidate?

It is also important to determine if you are eligible for this procedure. Ideal candidates will be healthy, nonsmokers who are not pregnant or nursing. The best way to determine if this procedure is right for you is through a consultation with a board certified plastic surgeon, where you can discuss your medical history, as well as your aesthetic goals.

Have You Done Your Homework?

Patients who are looking to undergo any type of plastic surgery should be sure to educate themselves on what to expect. You can find this information on our website, as well as the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the American Society of Aesthetic Surgery websites. You may have many options that you will need to discuss with your surgeon, which can impact the overall treatment plan. Being informed will allow you to ask the important questions during your consultation.

Are You Ready to Commit?

Any form of cosmetic surgery is a commitment that should be taken seriously. You may need to take certain steps before and after the surgery to maximize your recovery and obtain the best results. You will also need to commit time for the consultation, procedure, and any needed downtime.
