Your initial consultation for breast augmentation cosmetic surgery is going to be the most important meeting. At this appointment, your surgeon will explain to you about the preparatory steps you may need to take for your breast implant procedure.
Better prepared patients will always feel more confident about their surgery and will usually achieve safer and more satisfactory results in the end. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matthias Solomon provides breast augmentation surgery to patients in Dallas, Frisco, Sherman, Texas, and surrounding communities.
A Few Weeks before the Surgery
You can begin your preparatory process by following a balanced diet, which is rich in lean proteins. Get more regular about your exercise and fitness regimen in the weeks preceding the surgery. If you smoke, your surgeon will require you to quit the habit at least for a few weeks before the surgery. Smoking can interfere with the flow of oxygen in your blood, which increases your risk of complications during the surgery and recovery.
If you are taking blood thinners, aspirin, vitamin E or certain herbal supplements, your surgeon will ask you to stop using these medications. They may discuss with your general physician for adjusting the schedule of your ongoing prescription medications, if required.
Prior to your breast augmentation plastic surgery, you should clear any doubts or questions that you may have with regard to your procedure. Engage closely with your surgeon about your choice of breast implants, including their type, size and shape.
A Day before the Surgery
At least one day prior to your breast augmentation procedure, you should avoid consuming alcohol. Your surgeon may prescribe you an anti-anxiety pill, which you can take the night before your surgeon.
You should sleep early and be well-rested before your surgery. Make sure your home is ready in a way that you don’t face any inconvenience once you return after your surgery for a safe and comfortable recovery.
The Day of Surgery
Breast augmentation surgery is usually performed on an outpatient basis, but in exceptional cases, your surgeon may recommend an overnight stay at the hospital. Even if you undergo the procedure as an outpatient, you should know that the effects of anesthesia will linger on for a few hours following the completion of your surgery.
For this reason, you should have someone who can drive your back home after your surgery. Before you leave for home, your surgeon will give you a detailed list of post-operative recovery guidelines. You should follow these guidelines in a diligent manner.
If you need assistance at home in the initial few days after the surgery, you should arrange in advance for a professional caregiver or have a family member or friend stay with you for help. Working professionals should apply for leave ahead of the procedures as they may need to remain at home for at least one week or more.
With meticulous preparation on all aspects of your surgery, you can focus on your recovery and obtain optimal outcomes. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Matthias Solomon receives patients from Dallas, Frisco, Sherman, Texas, and nearby areas for breast implants surgery procedure.
