What You Should Discuss with Honolulu Plastic Surgeons before Breast Augmentation Randy Wong, MD on 08 Jun 2018
Swimsuit season is year round in Hawaii, making breast augmentation a popular procedure. However, before making a final decision on the procedure it’s important to be able to ask your Honolulu plastic surgeons the right questions during your consultation.
The first step is to ask your surgeon if breast augmentation is right for you. This will entail letting the surgeon performing the plastic surgery in Honolulu know your ultimate goals which will provide the information needed to let you know if breast augmentation will help you achieve those goals.
Next, ask for advice on choosing the right implant size. Generally, those getting breast implants want to choose a size that complements their figure and still maintains a natural look. Talk to your doctor about the difference between saline and silicone implants. The final look and feel of your augmentation could be affected by this decision and your doctor will be able to help you choose according to your individual plan.
During your consultation, discuss the surgical techniques available. Submuscular and subglandular implants offer different advantages for different body types and lifestyles. Bringing this up during your consultation will help you get the best results.
Lastly, it is important to ask what the recovery will be like. Your surgeon should be able to give you a good idea of how long it will take to return to work, your normal exercise routine, and more. With this knowledge you will be able to prepare your home to make your recovery more comfortable and stock up on supplies you will need. Many women can return to work in a week or two and resume exercise in four to six weeks, but it depends on other personal factors.
With any other procedure, the more you know and the better understanding of the process you have, the better chances of success you will have. Having an experienced, trustworthy, and friendly surgeon is important in getting the results you want.
