Sometimes women who come to me for breast augmentation in Greater Boston have pages of questions and information to bring to their consultation. I love this. Your consultation with a plastic surgeon is your opportunity to have your questions and concerns answered in person by a specialist. Get the greatest benefit from your consultation by being prepared with these tips:
- Do your research. Learn as much as you can about the surgery from reputable sources, such as websites for the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, breast implant manufacturers, or your surgeon. Research implant sizes, shapes, and materials, surgery techniques, and so on.
- Prepare questions. As you research, write down questions to ask the doctor. When it comes to surgery, you should have all your questions answered before proceeding.
- Clarify what you want. Be frank about how you want your breasts to look after surgery. This will help you better explain it to your surgeon. If it”s hard to describe, use before-and-after photos of other women. Photos can help you and your surgeon get on the same page.
