When sitting down for a breast augmentation consultation, it’s important to understand all aspects of your surgery. You’ll want to bring a comprehensive checklist of questions to ask your surgeon, including your options for implants, the risks and complications associated with surgery, preparation needs and recovery period expectations. It’s also imperative to understand what is included in the pricing for the procedure. Costs can vary widely depending on the surgeon’s experience, type of implants used, type of anesthesia, facility fees and other related expenses.
Breast augmentation is the most popular plastic surgery procedure, with more than 300,000 surgeries performed in the United States each year. As breast augmentation is an elective surgery, the cost is always a consideration but shouldn’t be the biggest factor in your final decision. When choosing a plastic surgeon, you will want to consider the surgeon’s experience as well as your comfort with him or her. Be sure to ask about their skills and experience, how many times they’ve done this procedure. You’ll also want to know if they have board certification in plastic surgery and surgical center accreditation.
