What To Know When Considering A Breast Augmentation

So you have probably done your research on everything that goes into a breast augmentation. You’ve searched the web, asked your peers, read blog posts, and now you’ve landed yourself here. Well it is good that you have, because Dr. Hall and Dr. Wrye are Reno, Nevada’s preferred plastic surgeons. Their thorough care and ability to make patients feel most comfortable, place them as a top choice for your surgeons. Breast augmentations have been around for 50 years and is still the nation’s most popular cosmetic surgery. While the amount of surgeries increase per year, techniques and technical advances change and we want to clear any confusion you may have.

What should you expect for your consultation?
After a consultation with Dr. Hall or Dr. Wrye all of your questions will be answered. It is smart to create a list of questions to bring with you so that you don’t feel overwhelmed or forget any concerns. In order to make you feel most confident in your decision we have developed a list of questions to ask yourself or the Doctors.

Questions to Ask Yourself:
What are my reasons behind making this decision?
Can I stop my smoking habits?
What results do I want and expect to see?
Have I listed out all the medicines, vitamins, or supplements I am currently consuming?
Have I disclosed all the allergies I have?
Can I commit to the post operation recovery time (time off work/hire a babysitter)?
Will I have an adult near to take care of me the day after the operation?

Questions to Ask the Surgeon:
How many breast augmentations do you perform a month?
Do you have before and after photos I can see?
What is my expected recovery time?
Where will my scar be?
What types of pain medications will I be on?
Will I lose sensation in my nipples/breasts?
Will I be able to breastfeed after implants?
How can I prevent a rupture or wrinkle in the implant?
Are there any diet changes I should make after surgery?

We hope these questions clear up your concerns and give you even more confidence in your decision. Both Dr. Hall and Dr. Wrye are here to give you the best advice on breast augmentations, as well as help you decide on a implant type and size that best suites your body type. Please contact us and help others feel even more comfortable by commenting anything you’d like to add to the lists above.
