It is important to research your procedure before any major surgery—and breast augmentation is no exception. Sometimes, our Brooklyn and Staten Island patients feel overwhelmed by the process, though. What’s the best way to sift through so much information on the internet?
Knowing the right questions to ask is half the battle when researching a procedure. In this blog post, we’ll highlight some useful topics that patients can look into before their surgical consultation.
Understand the differences
Breast augmentation isn’t a one-size-fits-all procedure. The surgery can be customized to best suit a patient’s needs. Different factors, such as implant size, shape, or material, can significantly change the look of your results.
Also, some implants are better suited to certain body types or profiles that are different from yours. When looking at before-and-after photos, remember that those specific features may not create the exact same results for you. Learn about different implant options that could work best for your shape.
Get the look you want
Before your consultation, take a moment to think about the overall look you want to achieve. Define your goals and ideal breast augmentation results. This will be helpful when discussing incision details and implant options with your doctor. They will be able to guide you toward choices that will achieve the look you truly want.
Reference photos can be useful for describing the overall aesthetic you’re looking for. You can find plenty of good examples in breast augmentation before-and-after galleries.
Consider your wardrobe
When your body changes, so do your clothing options. Women with larger breasts sometimes struggle with certain outfits or types of shirts. Those who prefer to dress modestly might benefit from choosing subtle implants that create a more natural-looking profile. Patients who want to fill out blouses and bikinis better may choose a different kind of implant.
Put serious thought into the kinds of clothing you want to wear after your breast augmentation. This clarity will help your surgeon create results that make you feel comfortable and confident.
Plan for the long-term
In the end, breast augmentation is a long-term investment. Be realistic about the kind of life you want to live after surgery. For example, those who enjoy hiking and exercise may want a slightly smaller cup size. Think about your day to day activities and how they may be affected by your implant decision.
Choose a look that you think will suit your needs and tastes for many years to come. And be open with your surgeon so you can work together to create a body that you truly love.
