When it comes time for a woman to consult with an NJ plastic surgeon for her breast augmentation surgery, she may feel nervous because of not knowing what to expect. This consultation appointment will allow a woman to learn more about her options and prepare herself for what will happen before, during and after her procedure. The more a woman is prepared, the more at ease she will feel during her appointment.
The first step in the process will be to meet with the nurse or other medical professional to discuss the patient's health history. The health history of the patient includes information on any health conditions that have been experienced in the present or past. It will also provide information on surgeries the patient has had and any medications they take. All of this information is taken into account when the surgeon is planning the surgery. This information can affect what type of anesthesia is used and what medications will be needed.
The doctor will talk with the patient about the surgery and any issues that may affect how it proceeds. Through a breast examination, the facial plastic surgeon will be able to determine what work needs to be done during the breast augmentation NJ.
The surgeon will assist the patient in deciding what type of implant will be best. Saline implants are preferred by some patients because they feel they may be safer. These implants can be filled to the desired size once they are in place. The surgeon will determine what size will look best for the woman and whether the implant needs to be placed in front of or behind the chest wall muscle.
There is also an option for silicone breast implants. These are pre-filled at the factory so the surgeon will need to decide the size before the surgery takes place. The patient and surgeon will work together to make a decision on the work that needs to be done to restore a woman's breasts.
The patient will need to sign some paperwork and then the surgery will need to be scheduled. The patient will be given instructions to follow before and after the surgery. It is imperative these instructions are followed so the surgery will proceed safely and the patient will recover as expected.
