Breast Augmentation Top Tips
We understand that it is a big decision to have breast augmentation surgery. That's why at London Lipo Institute our surgeons are there for you from start to finish. The initial consultation will be with the doctor who will perform the surgery. This consultation will give you the opportunity to discuss why you are wanting a breast augmentation surgery. If you are found to be a suitable candidate, the surgeon will be able to give you all the options for breast augmentation and guide you to help you make the best-informed decision. The consultation will also allow you the chance to visit where your surgery will take place and get to meet your patient consultant.
So what do you have to do before having breast augmentation surgery? It can often be nerve-wracking making sure you're well prepared. We've broken it down into a few simple steps so you can feel prepared prior to your surgery.
1. Read about breast augmentation surgery
To help you make an informed decision about whether or not you want to undertake breast augmentation surgery, it is best to do a bit of research and find out as much information as possible. However, you will need to beware of websites that are designed just to scare patients and highlight horror stories. When researching, try to stick to websites by medical professionals. We are experts in the field and know we can be trusted with the information we post. Breast augmentation has come a long way from what it used to be, and now has far fewer risks associated with the procedure. So before your surgery, read as much as you can about the implants, the surgery, and the recovery time - just stay away from sensationalised headlines.
2. Know your options
When it comes to breast augmentation, there are lots of options you will have to decide on. What size implant do you want, what shape, and what placement - let alone whether or not breast augmentation is even the right procedure for you. In your initial conversation, your surgeon will be able to help you make the right decision for every one of these options. However, at the end of the day, you will be making the final decision, which may differ from the surgeon's opinion.
3. Look for before and after photographs
Before and after photographs will not only give you an idea of what type of implant you want, but it also shows the surgeon's skills and what they are capable of. You want to know you are going to a surgeon who is experienced and can ensure great results.
The surgeons at London Lipo Institute have been performing breast augmentations for years - and even train other surgeons.
4. Look at your own breasts
It is easy to look at photographs and decide that is what you want. However, it is important to understand that every person is different, and what is a suitable option for one person may be unsuitable for the next. Knowing how your own breasts sit and their size will help you keep realistic expectations about what the breast augmentation can achieve.
