Breast augmentation may seem like a simple enough procedure, but it’s still a major surgery with numerous potential risks involved. Therefore, regardless of how long you have wanted the surgery, it’s vital you find out as much as you possibly can during your consultation.
It helps to write a list of questions to take with you. While there are a lot of questions you could potentially ask, some are more important than others. Below you’ll discover 3 of the most important questions you must ask at your London breast augmentation consultation.
1. How many years’ experience does the surgeon have?
The success of your breast augmentation will depend largely upon the skill of the surgeon. Therefore, you need to know exactly how long they have been performing this type of procedure. Ideally you want to go with a surgeon who has at least three years’ experience.
Equally as important is how many procedures they typically carry out each month. Breast augmentation is a very popular procedure, so you’d expect more than one to be carried out in a month for example.
2. Am I a good candidate for a breast augmentation?
A good London plastic surgeon will give you an honest answer to this question. They will look at your medical records, discuss your expectations and situation and then advise whether breast augmentation is right for you. Whilst the procedure is ideal for the majority of patients, there are some circumstances where you might not be a good candidate.
3. What do I need to know about breast augmentation recovery?
It’s important to know exactly what to expect from your recovery in order to make the necessary arrangements. How much time will you need off work? When will you be able to resume normal tasks? Also, how long will you need to stay in hospital? All of these things are important to know before you undergo the procedure.
These are just a small number of the questions you need to ask during your breast augmentation consultation London. Remember, write a list to take with you so you don’t forget to ask something important. Do as much research as you can prior to the consultation too as this will give you a better understanding of the procedure, making it easier to understand what the surgeon tells you.
