6 Essential Questions to Ask During Your Breast Augmentation Consultation

If you’re preparing for breast augmentation, that means it is time for questions. This is your opportunity to learn as much as you can about the procedure, your surgeon, and what breast augmentation can do for you. Your breast augmentation consultation is one of the best places to get your questions out. As you prepare for your appointment, write down questions and bring your list with you. Here are 6 questions that make our list of need-to-know essentials.

Are You a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon?

Many surgeons offer breast augmentation and other cosmetic surgeries, but not all are actually trained plastic surgeons. The best breast augmentation results typically come from a surgeon that performs many of these surgeries. We recommend that you choose a board certified plastic surgeon with experience in breast surgeries. Dr. Sajjadian is one of only a few surgeons to hold board certification from 3 medical boards. Breast surgeries are one of the focuses of his practice.

Can I See Before and After Photos?

Plastic surgery is an art and you’ll want to be sure that you like the artistic perspective of your chosen surgeon before you go under the knife. Ask to see before and after photos of their work, specifically in breast augmentation. It can be helpful to look at women with a similar body type to yours so you can get an idea of what to expect from your results. Patient testimonials can also provide valuable insight into the surgeon you’re considering.

Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation?

We want you to love your breast augmentation results. Part of this process is understanding what you can expect from your breast augmentation. During your consultation Dr. Sajjadian will carefully examine your body and discuss your options. Find out if you are a good candidate for surgery and if breast augmentation will help you achieve your aesthetic goals.

What Type of Implant Would You Recommend for Me?

Dr. Sajjadian uses both saline and silicone implants in a variety of shapes and sizes. Part of your consultation is determining which implants will best achieve your goals. Talk about your ideal breasts and ask which implant type Dr. Sajjadian would recommend. In many patients he has a clear preference while other patients can make the saline or silicone decision themselves. Both saline and silicone implants can yield natural looking results and each has its unique benefits.

Do I Need a Breast Lift?

Breast augmentation is not the magical solution to every breast problem. If you have saggy breasts, breast augmentation won’t fix it. For women that want to increase breast size and eliminate sagging, Dr. Sajjadian typically recommends a breast lift. These two surgeries can be performed at the same time providing lift and volume with only one recovery period. Ask Dr. Sajjadian if you’ll need a lift to achieve your ideal look.

What Should I Expect from Recovery After Breast Augmentation?

If you want a successful breast augmentation recovery, you’ll need to do a bit of prep work before the surgery actually occurs. Many women need time off from work, help with childcare, etc. Understanding what the recovery process will entail for you can help you make the necessary preparations. In general Dr. Sajjadian recommends that you avoid lifting, bending, or straining for at least a week. Your specific restrictions may vary depending on the specifics of your surgery.
