Is Breast Augmentation right for me?

As with any major cosmetic procedure, the decision to have a breast augmentation should not be taken lightly. It is essential that you spend a good period of time considering all your options and finding a reputable, highly experienced surgeon who is willing to answer all your questions first.

There will be things your surgeon will be able to explain to you in detail – from what will happen before your operation, to the details of the procedure itself, to what to expect afterwards. But before you even find a surgeon, there are some important things you must ask yourself:

Why am I considering this procedure?

This is one of the first things your surgeons will want to know, and it’s very important. Ask yourself what motivates you to have a breast augmentation – are you doing this purely for yourself, or to impress other people? A good practitioner will help you identify any areas of concern, so you can be sure you’re having the procedure for the right reasons.

Am I eligible for the procedure?

Not everyone is eligible for a breast augmentation, and a good surgeon will be clear about this. Anyone under-age or whose breasts are not yet fully formed will not be able to have a breast augmentation, likewise pregnant women or nursing mothers. There are a few other factors such as health issues which can also affect your suitability for the procedure, and your surgeon will advise you of these during your consultation.

Am I willing to listen to my surgeon’s advice?

Breast augmentation is a complex process with lots of possible options. You should be willing to work with your surgeon to discuss the best possible treatment plan according to your individual situation and body type. If your desired breast shape is unsuitable for your frame or there are any health concerns, it is important that you are willing to listen to expert advice – we are here to help you achieve the best possible outcome for you.

Am I ready for surgery?

As with any kind of invasive surgery, there are risks involved. if you’re uncomfortable with the idea of going under the knife, there could be other, non-surgical options that would suit you better. It’s important that you feel comfortable and informed during every stage of the process, so don’t be afraid to ask your surgeon for reassurance.

Can I afford it?

Breast augmentation is not a cheap procedure, so it’s important that you can afford it and don’t cause yourself any financial problems in the process.

Am I prepared for the downtime?

You will be sore for a while following the procedure, and it’s also important that you follow a post-treatment plan and take proper care of yourself afterwards. Make sure you’ve booked plenty of time to recuperate and ask someone to help you with chores and looking after children and pets.
