Breast augmentation offers a great opportunity for you to make some changes to your breast appearance, enhance your appearance and feel more confident.
Having some pictures on hand is a proactive way of helping Dr. Andan know your expectations.
However, there are some things to keep in mind before attending your breast augmentation consultation.
Look for Pre- and Post-Operative Pictures
While bringing in some pictures you downloaded off the internet can offer an indication of what outcome you’d like, having a look at pre- and post-operative pictures of actual patients is better.
These offer you a more realistic take on what outcome you can expect compared to the surely airbrushed and Photoshopped breasts on an online model.
Also, Bring Pre-Operative Questions
Before your breast augmentation consultation, do some research, figure out all the questions you may need answers to and write them all down.
In addition to the photos, do draft a list of questions you want to ask Dr. Andan during your breast augmentation consultation.
Many women make the mistake of thinking that having pictures is all it takes to reach an understanding with their surgeon.
Beyond photographs, asking questions helps Dr. Andan better understand your goals for breast enhancement surgery.
Keep Expectations Realistic
Finally, while getting breast implants is an exciting decision, keep your expectations realistic. Although you may see perfect breasts in a picture, it’s hard to appreciate how the rest of a woman’s body plays into her overall look.
Body symmetry is an important factor in your breast augmentation results. Depending on the dimensions of the rest of your body, certain implant sizes may not be a match for you.
The goal of any cosmetic surgery procedure should always be finding the look that’s best for you, not trying to live up to someone else’s photo.
