When you’ve decided to get breast augmentation surgery, you’re going to be tempted to hit the ground running. But before you rush into things, there are a few very important post-surgery safety tips you need to consider. Follow this list of 6 tips you need to know and you can be better prepared before, during and after your breast augmentation surgery.

1. Do Your Research

Before you even consider breast augmentation, it’s important that you do your research. This can start with finding a reputable source of information on breast augmentation surgery, like the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. By doing thorough research, you can begin to understand the processes and safety concerns of the procedure. Follow up by fully researching your surgeon and scheduling a consultation.

2. Ask Your Surgeon about Their Qualifications and Experience

Researching your surgeon doesn’t end with a quick Google search. Your plastic surgery consultation is your time to talk to your surgeon about their qualifications and experience performing breast augmentations, or any other type of surgery you may be considering. Think of this as a first date with high stakes. Ask about board certifications, before and after photos and any other specific concerns you might have. You need to feel comfortable and safe with this person, so don’t hold back. Any good surgeon will be prepared to answer all of your questions.

3. Take Your Time

Once you have all your information, you’re under no obligation to make an immediate decision. You can take your time and consider all of your options, think through all of the information you’ve absorbed and wait until the time is right to schedule your surgery, should you decide to do so.

4. Fully Understand Your Procedures

Don’t let anyone pressure you into making a decision that affects your body and your safety.

A big component of plastic surgery safety is completely understanding your specific procedures. Once you’ve done your basic research and scheduled your breast augmentation, you and your plastic surgeon will discuss exactly what your procedure will be like. You’ll cover everything from size and shape to surgery and recovery.

Pro tip: bring a trusted friend or family member with you to your pre-op appointment to help make sure you get all of the information you need while you get ready for your surgery.

5. Ask About the Safety of the Facility

You have your information, you’ve scheduled your surgery, but your first date isn’t over just yet. You also need to inquire about the safety of the facility where you’ll be having your breast augmentation. Ask about the facility’s procedures, precautions and your surgeon’s privileges. This can also be good information to share with the person who will be bringing you to and from your surgery.

6. Don’t Take Breast Augmentation Lightly

Breast augmentation surgery is just that — a surgery. For that reason, you need to consider it a serious and life-altering event. It can be a wonderful experience if you take your time, gather all the necessary information and follow these plastic surgery safety tips. Treat breast augmentation and any other plastic surgery with the right amount of respect and significance and you’ll be able to help set yourself up for success.
