4 Dos and Don’ts To Ensure The Best Breast Augmentation Results

Whatever your reasons for opting for cosmetic surgery, it’s important to do your research before going forward with breast augmentation. To help you get the best possible results, follow these dos and don’ts that will help you get through the before, during, and after of having breast augmentation surgery:

1. DO Choose Your Plastic Surgeon Carefully

Choosing the right plastic surgeon is one of the most important steps towards great breast augmentation results. You have to be very discerning and select a surgeon who has the skill, experience, and aesthetic philosophy that will get you the results you want.

Always look for:

  • Board Certification. Board-certified plastic surgeons commit themselves to longer and more comprehensive education. They also operate under stricter standards for patient care, safety, and aesthetics.

  • Experience. To get the most satisfactory and pleasing results, it’s important to ensure that your plastic surgeon has significant experience with this particular cosmetic procedure.

  • Good Rapport. It’s important to have a good relationship with your plastic surgeon. If you don’t feel comfortable talking to a particular doctor, or you don’t feel he/she really listens to you, you should find someone else/

What To Consider When Choosing A Surgeon


2. DON’T Get a Breast Augmentation For Someone Else

One sure way to end up with unsatisfactory breast augmentation results is to have the procedure for the wrong reasons, including doing it to impress or please someone else. You should ONLY choose to go forward with the procedure if it’s something you genuinely want.

Tip: Take the time to examine your reasons for wanting breast augmentation and discuss them honestly with your plastic surgeon.

3. DO Have a Plastic Surgery Consultation

Having a plastic surgery consultation is a necessary part of getting the breast augmentation results you want. During this time, your plastic surgeon can help you understand your options, and what kind of results you should expect.

During a consultation, you’ll discuss:

  • your candidacy
  • your lifestyle and medical history
  • your aesthetic goals
  • any before and after pictures to get a good idea of what an augmentation will look like on you
  • what type of implants you would like

Remember: Before you go for your consultation, write out a list of questions and concerns you want to discuss with your surgeon. This is crucial to give you peace of mind and to keep you fully informed on all aspects of the procedure.

What Your Surgeon Wants You To Know


4. DON’T smoke Cigarettes

This is one of the breast augmentation tips that should be applied both before and after your procedure. There are so many reasons why you should quit smoking and one of them is that smoking and surgery make a bad combination.

  • Before your breast augmentation, quit smoking for at least 4 weeks prior to your surgery date.
  • During breast augmentation surgery, you should remember that nicotine causes blood vessels to constrict, which places you at greater risk for surgical complications.
  • After your procedure, you should try to stay away from the habit for as long as possible as smoking will only hinder your body’s ability to heal quickly and properly.
  • In the years following breast augmentation surgery, it would be best for you to quit smoking completely. Smoking increases your risk of cancer and causes premature ageing and changes your skin texture.
