Important Things To Consider Before Breast Augmentation

Choosing to have cosmetic breast surgery can be a big decision. That is why Saratoga Springs Plastic Surgery and MediSpa is committed to helping you prepare for your treatment by offering the following tips.

  1. Keep an open mind. Doing your research before having breast augmentation surgery is important, but being realistic is as well. If you’re starting as an A cup and want to have a DD cup, that typically can’t happen in one procedure—your body and skin need time to adapt. In addition, if you have a strong family history of breast cancer, are obese or smoke, these factors can increase potential risks for this surgery. Much information on the internet is not accurate. Nothing you might on an internet search concerning breast enhancement beats the information you will receive from Dr. Yarinsky at your personalized consultation. Just remember to talk to Dr. Yarinsky about your concerns during your consultation, have all your questions answered and have an open mind to their suggestions.
  2. Prepare your nest. This isn’t necessary, but you’ll be grateful for having done so. Having clean bedding with comfort items nearby can help you feel at ease during your postoperative recovery. Preparing meals beforehand and purchasing clothes to fit your new chest can also be beneficial. Keep prescribed medicine from the doctor close by to help with the pain, and call your doctor’s office with any questions. Enlist a close friend or family member who will be with you 24-7 for at least the first few days after your breast enhancement, and who can drive you to your follow-up appointments. Planning is essential for comfort, to ease post-op anxiety and to achieve the best possible result.
  3. Plan. Many practices offer financial assistance, so be sure to inquire about these options on their website and when you can attend you consultation. It’s also important to plan your time off schedule from work. The recovery time can be one week or more, and sutures are usually taken out within two to three weeks.
  4. Research. You’ll want to research different board-certified plastic surgeons to find one you feel comfortable with who specializes in doing breast implants. It’s also beneficial if they are members of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, both of which have high standards for involvement. Check their website for before-and-after photos and Google and other reviews, and ask to speak to their other breast enhancement patients to learn about their experiences and about their level of satisfaction with their results..
