How to Prepare for Your Breast Augmentation Consultation
- Posted on: Sep 30 2018
Have you always wanted to have larger breasts but just haven’t been sure about whether or not a breast augmentation is right for you? Alternatively, have you recently stopped breastfeeding and realized that your breasts are maybe a little bit deflated? Here at Associated Plastic Surgeons, we specialize in a variety of cosmetic procedures including breast augmentation. Before you come into our office for your breast augmentation consultation, however, we have created a list of a few ways for you to feel more prepared.
Sure, you may not look like Kim Kardashian or even resemble her at all, but you may like the look of her breasts. As a good point of reference for both our surgeons and yourself, bring in some pictures of some celebrities or anybody else whose breasts you feel like are a good size and shape for your body. Then, from there, we can talk more about the results that you will get from a breast augmentation procedure.
Think About the Results You Want
Here at our office, we offer patients two different types of breast implants: silicone and saline. Even though we will go over the details of these implants during your consultation appointment, it’s still good to come into our office feeling a little more informed. So, what’s the difference between silicone and saline implants?
- Silicone: Silicone implants are pre-filled implants that contain a silicone gel in them. Silicone is really popular amongst patients because it tends to feel a bit more natural and softer than saline.
- Saline: Saline implants have a silicone outer envelope that is filled with saline during the procedure. One reason why patients choose saline over silicone is that the incision is usually smaller.
The last thing that we want you to feel about getting a breast augmentation is confused or uncertain. During your consultation with our staff, we will answer any questions or concerns about this procedure to help you determine whether or not it’s right for you.
