Choosing to have cosmetic surgery is a big decision, both emotionally and financially, so making sure you are prepared as possible before you begin your journey is highly recommended. Here are a few helpful tips to help get you prepared for a breast augmentation before making that all-important decision.
Do plenty of research before you commit to anything
You really can’t underestimate the value in putting in a significant number of research hours. Reading around the procedure(s) that you are considering, looking at before and after photos, reading reviews of different surgeons, reading around what to expect from the recovery period – there is a wealth of information out there which will help you feel more prepared ahead of booking to discuss your wishes with a surgeon.
RealSelf, the leading cosmetic surgery review site, recently released its list of most researched cosmetic procedures of 2019 and it’s no surprise that breast augmentation topped the list of surgical procedures.
So, research is essential, but always keep an open mind before you go for a consultation with your plastic surgeon.

Not only it is not just one size, but there are a number of different breast procedures that are available to women. Enlargements, reductions, reshaping, uplifting – different procedures will be right for different women, and sometimes a combination is required for the look that you hoping to achieve.
If a breast augmentation is the most appropriate procedure, then implant size and the cup size you will be after surgery is the next consideration.

If you are feeling at all pressured to make changes to your body, then this is not likely to be the right route for you. Only give genuine consideration to surgery if it is something that you want. Equally, if you are hearing concerns from friends or family, don’t let someone else put you off if it is something that is important to you.
