HOW TO HAVE A SAFE BREAST AUGMENTATION
- Posted on: Aug 14 2013
Breast augmentations continue to be the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure in the United States. With its high patient satisfaction rating, the cosmetic procedure continues to become more and more mainstream. If you are considering breast implants, here are a couple things to help your surgery go smoothly.
WHO TO CHOOSE FOR SURGERY
When dealing with any surgical procedure, you will want to choose a board-certified plastic surgeon. While there are others performing the procedure as well, board-certified surgeons have the greatest experience and have gone through years and years of training. Trust me, we’ve done these procedures many times so that you can have the peace of mind knowing that you will receive the best treatment.
There are lots of clinics outside of the country advertising insanely low prices and constructing fake patient reviews and testimonials to try and bring in more business. Things like uncommonly low prices are red flags to avoid. Listen to your instinct. If something doesn’t feel quite right, it probably isn’t.
There are times when being extremely picky is a good thing, and choosing a surgeon is one of them.
WHAT YOU NEED TO DO
Your surgeon is here to offer his advice and recommendations during your consultation, but you have the ultimate say in a large part of your procedure; the type of implants, implant placement, size, etc.
However, you must follow all the pre- and post-procedure guidelines given to you. They are for your safety before, during, and after surgery and recovery. As surgeons, we all care about your safety and satisfaction so please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions, concerns, or comments. We love hearing all of your feedback.
If you are interested in a breast augmentation, find a board-certified plastic surgeon that you are comfortable with and talk with them about what you are looking to get out of your procedure. If you happen to be nearby San Antonio, I would love to meet with you and discuss how we can help you achieve the results that you desire.
