The dos and don’ts of preparing for a breast augmentation
The decision to have breast augmentation takes some thought, should be made carefully, and with your eyes wide open. If you’ve been considering breast augmentation, the decision to move forward is a time of excitement and possibility. Here are a few actions you should take to prepare for your procedure.
Do choose your surgeon thoughtfully
No decision you make will influence the success of your breast augmentation like the surgeon you choose. When seeking a surgeon to perform your breast augmentation in Newport Beach, there are so many options. How do you choose?
- Certification: Only a board-certified plastic surgeon has the appropriate credentials to perform a successful breast augmentation.
- Experience: Your surgeon should have extensive experience performing breast augmentation procedures with glowing reviews. Ask to see photos of their past work and to read reviews from happy patients.
- Rapport: The journey that begins with breast augmentation will last a lifetime – far beyond one surgical procedure. It’s important that you feel comfortable with your surgeon and that you feel your vision for your body is understood.
Don’t have breast augmentation for anyone but you
Like any surgical procedure, the decision to have breast augmentation is an intensely personal one. If you are choosing to have breast augmentation, or to select a larger size implant, because of pressure from someone in your life, DON’T. This procedure will forever alter your physical appearance and the only person you should be concerned about pleasing is you.
Do eat healthy
Think of food as fuel for your body, especially when you’re preparing for and recovering from surgery. The quality of the food you eat will aid your recovery and fuel your body’s systems. Eating a diet rich in whole foods, fruits, vegetables, and lean protein is the best way to help it function at optimum performance.
Smoking slows the speed at which blood flows through your body, lengthening healing time and stealing valuable resources that your body needs to heal properly. Most physicians will advise you to stop smoking at least six weeks in advance of any surgical procedure (and not to begin again once your body is healed) for your own safety and health.
Do ask questions
This is the time to ask any questions you have about your breast augmentation procedure, type of implant, recovery time, and more. Dr. Wirth will happily answer any and all questions you have so you may feel comfortable and confident the day of your procedure.
Don’t worship the sun
Excessive sun exposure can leave your skin looking aged. Practicing healthy sun habits like using ample SPF will help to ensure the success of your breast augmentation for years to come.
