Every breast augmentation surgery starts with an initial consultation with the surgeon. This is an important step because this is the time when you can meet and get to know your surgeon. Since you will be meeting the surgeon face to face, this will help you identify your surgeon’s abilities and experience, whether or not they are qualified to perform the surgeon successfully. Moreover, this gives you the opportunity to feel more comfortable with the surgeon, and ultimately, trust him/her. After all, they will be the one responsible for your surgery, and the success of the procedure is in their hands. The initial consultation allows you to speak with the surgeon in person, which makes it easier to ask all the questions you have about the surgery. During this time, you can also tell the surgeon in detail about your desires and expectations. It is important that you make sure you communicate well with your surgeon in order for them to understand how you want your breasts to look like. You need to tell them exactly what you want in order to avoid disappointments in the end. Remember, this is your body and you always have a choice. Before the consultation, it would be best to do a little bit of research on your own about the procedure that you want to have. This will give you an idea of what to expect and what type of results you can expect. Although the surgeons will explain the procedure to you, doing your own research will help you understand the process better. If you happen to have any questions, the consultation period is the perfect time to ask them. You can clarify all the details that are unclear to you so that you can make your final decision. Any fears or concerns you might have should be voiced out so that your surgeon can reassure you and answer them to the best of his or her knowledge. The more you know about what you are committing yourself to, the easier it would be to come to a conclusion. By going for an initial consultation, you can build a working relationship with your surgeon. This helps ensure that both of you have the same goals for the procedure. The initial consultation also serves to clarify the techniques and procedures the surgeon uses. This is good to know when you are still undecided about which surgeon will perform your surgery. Aside from that, you will also be able to get a quotation from the surgeon during your consultation. Once you know the cost, you can think of a payment plan to ensure that the surgery is within your budget. There are some who take out interest-free loans to pay for their surgery. You can also just opt to save up money before going through with the surgery, so that you can pay it in full. Once your surgeon understands exactly what you want from the procedure, medical examinations will be done. This is to check if you are physically and mentally fit for the surgery, as well as if you are a good candidate. Measurements will also be taken before the surgery. The surgeon may even conduct a physical exam as early as the initial consultation just to see the condition of your breasts. This allows them to assess your breasts and determine if the procedure will suit you well.
