How to Prepare for Your Breast Augmentation Consultation
While we can provide you with all the information you need, it is a good idea to research prior to your appointment. For example, learn what you can about the procedure so you can know what to expect. Read about the different breast implant options available and think about which type you might prefer.
We also encourage individuals to bring along a detailed list of questions with them to their consultation. Here are some things you may wish to ask Dr. Robles:
- Which type of incision do you recommend?
- Which type of breast implant would you recommend for my case?
- What types of anesthesia do you offer? Which one is right for me?
- Will I require a breast lift as well?
- Will you be able to preserve my natural crease or will you need to lower it?
- What are some possible risks or complications regarding breast augmentation?
Knowing what questions you want to ask in advance can help you feel much more confident in your final decision.
What to Bring to Your Breast Augmentation Consultation
In addition to questions, there are a few other things that will be helpful to bring along with you to your consultation. Most importantly, be sure to bring any available health records, as your medical history will be discussed at length. This should include any medical conditions, diseases, allergies, and history of hospitalizations. You will also want to include a detailed list of medications or supplements you are currently taking.
In addition to the medical evaluation, you should also be prepared for the cosmetic aspect of the discussion. Bring along a few photos to review with Dr. Robles. Include several that demonstrate how you would like to look after your breast augmentation, as well as a few that show how you do not want to look. Talking in depth with Dr. Robles about these things will not only help him understand your aesthetic goals more clearly, but it will also help you enjoy a comfortable, stress-free recovery.
