Questions to Ask During a Breast Augmentation Consultation

Published on: December 27, 2017

If you are considering a breast augmentation procedure, you have questions on your mind that you want answered. While factors like cost and size options are common questions people ask about breast implant plastic surgery, there are some other questions you should be asking when you go in for your breast augmentation consultation. Here are a few topics to discuss with your plastic surgeon:

  • Will there be a visible scar? It is important to know whether your scar will be noticeable. Experienced plastic surgeons use different techniques to hide the scar, making it almost invisible.
  • What is the likelihood of sagging? Implants may look wonderful when they are first inserted, but you want to know how they will look five, ten and more years down the road. Talk to your surgeon about the methods they use to prevent sagging, like inserting under the pectoral muscles.
  • What will be my recovery time? Breast augmentation is surgery and it will require some time to recover. However, certain techniques may heal quicker than others. Talk to your surgeon about what to expect after surgery and how long you will need to recover.
  • How will breast implants impact future pregnancies? If you are planning to have children in the future, you will want to know how pregnancy will impact your implants and whether you will be able to breastfeed.

You want to gather as much information you can before you make your decision to have a breast augmentation procedure. An experienced plastic surgeon will be happy to answer your questions and make sure you are comfortable with your decision before moving forward with your procedure.
