If you follow a few sensible tips, you shouldn’t need five boob jobs to get beautiful results.

Find a Breast Enhancement Specialist

Nearly all plastic surgeons offer breast enhancement procedures at their practices, but not all of them specialize in breast surgery. It’s well worth your time to look into your surgeon’s background and seek out a board certified plastic surgeon with a history of delivering excellent breast augmentation results. You can inquire about experience and ask to see before-and-after photos of real patients to get a better idea of what your surgeon is capable of achieving.

The Value of Consultation

Prior to your surgery, you’ll meet with your surgeon for a consultation. This is the ideal moment to discuss your goals for surgery, show your surgeon photos of your ideal breast appearance and share any concerns or hesitations you may have. A communicative surgeon-patient relationship is critical to creating your goal appearance on the first try rather than the fifth. Too often patients request a fee over the email or telephone, while this may seem reasonable, this does not allow a full and complete assessment of the individual’s anatomy and unique circumstances that can only be accomplished at the face-to-face appointment.

Future Surgeries Are Just as Important as the First

Finally, bear in mind that any future breast surgeries you may choose to have are just as important as the first. While you shouldn’t need five breast surgeries to love the look of your breasts, women with implants may later choose to get a breast lift to raise their bust line or swap out the size of their implants to fit with their changing preferences. Please take into consideration that implants are not forever because your anatomy is not forever the same. It changes with weight gain/loss, pregnancy, and time. Being realistic about long term results and planning for subsequent procedures is an important part of the decision-making process when contemplating getting arguably the best breast augmentation Chicago has to offer.
