Breast Augmentation Surgeons- The Consultation Guide
One of the most important steps when getting ready for your breast augmentation is the consultation
Being well prepared for your initial consultation can make all the difference between feeling you feeling prepared and well informed, versus feeling stressed out and not knowing what to expect.
Once you’ve narrowed down your search for the right surgeon for the job, it is a good idea to schedule an initial consultation where you can get answers to all your questions. Dr. Golger & Dr. Romy at Avenue Plastic Surgery are well known among the top breast augmentation surgeons in Toronto. Operating out of their state-of-the-art clinics in Toronto and Whitby, they are popular because of their compassionate and patient-centered approach to surgery. With years of experience under his belt, Dr. Golger advises all prospective patients to prepare a list of questions prior to their initial consultation.
However, we understand that trying to prepare for a consultation can be quite overwhelming. To help, here is a guide with some of the most important topics to cover during your breast augmentation consultation. Although you’ve probably done a considerable amount of research before your consultation, it’s important to once again review the surgeon’s background when you meet in person. Ensuring that they have the necessary credentials and experience is a great way to know that you’re in safe and capable hands.
Before and after photos
Another great way to solidify your decision is to ask the surgeon for before and after photos. In doing so, you can get an accurate idea of consistent results and their personal aesthetic. It is prudent to note though, that these pictures likely depict the surgeon’s best work, so review lots of photos and talk to other patients when possible. During a consultation, one of the most important topics to cover is what you can expect during and after surgery. By setting realistic expectations ahead of time, you can avoid any unwelcome surprises as well as ensure you are well prepared for what’s to come. Asking questions about where the surgery will be performed, what type of anesthesia will be used, and how long recovery takes, will help you get ready for the post-op phase.
Which type of implant is suitable for you?
Depending on how much research you‘ve done beforehand, you may or may not be aware of the different types of breast implants available. Typically, breast implants are either silicone gel-based or saline. During a consultation, it’s a good idea to ask about the different types of implants your surgeon offers and which they recommend for you. Most patients who are treated by breast augmentation surgeons in Toronto, opt for silicone implants. This is primarily because, despite the higher price tag, they result in a more natural look and feel than saline implants. Furthermore, they are also less prone to rippling over time, making them a solid long-term investment.
