You’ve decided you want breast augmentation surgery and you’ve booked a consultation with a few clinics. This type of surgery is one of the most popular in the industry and it has made women all over the world happier with their bodies. There are a lot of choices to make, that’s why the consultation process is so important.
So, you’ve chosen a breast augmentation clinic (called คลินิกเสริมหน้าอก in Thai) and you need to get ready for the consultation. Getting ready for a consultation may be routine for the doctor, but they are not for the patient. Discussing your insecurities can be difficult, that’s why it helps to come prepared with questions and examples of your goals.
- How much experience does the surgeon have?
- Are they board certified?
- Are you a good candidate for the procedure?
- What happens on my surgery day?
- What are the pros and cons of different implant styles?
These are all important questions you need to ask during the consultation, so come prepared with good quality questions.
The surgeon will be examining your breasts, so it helps to wear loose fitting clothes to the consultation. They need to perform a physical exam at some point to help them better understand your anatomy. Wear something comfortable that makes you feel more at ease.
Most people bring along a partner or loved one when they go to the consultation. It makes them feel more comfortable and they can also remember the answer to questions the client may have forgot. If they’ll be there during the recovery phase, they can ask questions about assisting you during this period. Some prefer to go solo, while others need support. The decision is entirely up to you.
Consultation to Surgery
You don’t have to go from one single consultation straight to surgery. The consultation can be overwhelming as there is a lot of information to process. Some patients want to move quickly while others need more time. If you have more questions you want answered, you can schedule a follow up consultation or you can speak to the clinic over the phone or by email.
If you’ve scheduled a consultation with a clinic, you should take steps to make sure you come prepared. Do some research on the internet and base your questions around the research you have done. If you don’t feel ready for the surgery after one consultation, get in touch with the clinic and schedule another appointment or contact them for more information.
