Choosing to have breast augmentation in Texas is a big step, and a decision someone should never make lightly. Done properly, you can enjoy a whole new look and a boost of confidence to go with, but it’s still a surgical procedure that carries risks. The more research you do beforehand, and the more questions you ask of your potential plastic surgeons, the better the chances that everything will go smoothly.

To help ensure the best possible outcomes of your breast augmentation in Texas, ask these questions before deciding.

Six Questions to Ask Your Plastic Surgeon Before Breast Augmentation Surgery

1- Are you a board-certified plastic surgeon?

Never receive plastic surgery from someone who isn’t part of the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Membership is what defines those who are truly skilled in their craft. You don’t want anyone but the best reshaping your body.

2- Am I a good candidate for breast augmentation?

Breast surgery isn’t for everyone. A good plastic surgeon will give you a thorough physical examination, as well as talking about your reasons for wanting breast augmentation, before making a final decision on whether it’s the right option for you.

3- What will the recovery period be like?

As with any surgery, there will be a recovery period. Be sure to discuss this with your doctor, particularly regarding whether you will need to do anything specific to help ensure the recovery goes smoothly.

4- What are my options if I don’t like the results?

Depending on the type of augmentation done, it may be possible to reverse the surgery or make further alterations later. Discuss this possibility, so you know what to expect.

5- Will my ability to breastfeed be affected?

Most forms of breast augmentation will not affect breastfeeding. However, if this is important to you, be sure to ask first so your doctor knows it’s a consideration.

6- How will my new breasts look as time passes?

Remember: You’re not just getting new breasts for today, you’re getting them for years to come. Discuss how your plastic surgeon expects your body to change in years ahead, and how this may affect your options in the future.
