Sometimes, a patient will come to us specifying the exact size of breast implant they’d like, perhaps because she admires the look of her friend’s recent implants.
While we encourage patients to do their homework before surgical procedures, we also want them to trust the consultation process and come to us with open minds. The reason is simple: One size does not fit all. What looks great on one person may look imbalanced on another. Your best friend’s implants, for example, may look rounded and full but could end up looking too large or too little on you, depending on your body’s proportions.
To help you achieve your most flattering results, here are a few tips to consider before your breast surgery:
Take the time to consider all your options.
Our consultation process is a safe and relaxed forum for discussing all aspects of your surgery, from the size and type of implants to your recovery process. During your pre-operative appointment, you’ll have the opportunity to try on silicone sizers to get a feel for your desired results. As the pre-eminent breast surgeons in Syracuse, Drs. Gregory Baum and Anthony Deboni will carefully consider your body type and reasons for surgery to help you make these important decisions.
Ask a lot of questions!
As with any plastic surgery, there’s a lot of information to absorb. Don’t be shy about asking questions so you can make an informed decision that fits your unique needs. Our plastic surgeons, Drs. Deboni and Baum, are the best in the industry. They offer the highest level of surgical skill and experience so you can relax knowing you are in the hands of experts who will give you amazing results.
Schedule ample downtime.
Breast augmentation is one of the most common types of plastic surgery, safely experienced by thousands of happy people every year. Even so, it’s still surgery. This means you need to schedule at least a full week away from work and 6 to 8 weeks avoiding heavy-lifting or strenuous exercise.
