At the practice of Dr. Zachary Farris, we make sure you are ready for your breast augmentation procedure. Steps to take in these initial stages include:
Arrange a consultation. The consultation is the next logical step if you are getting serious about breast augmentation. The consult is a one-on-one conversation between you and Dr. Farris.
Discuss your goals and health history with Dr. Farris. During the consultation, you’ll discuss your goals, health history, motivations, concerns, etc. Dr. Farris will answer all of your questions and help you consider pros and cons that you hadn’t previously considered. It’s an extensive meeting to make sure you feel equipped to make this decision.
Consider your surgical options. You’ll have some thinking to do after your consultation. We encourage you to mull over the options and reach out to us with any questions that arise once you’ve returned home. Taking time to think it all over should help you with this important decision.
Schedule a surgical date. We will help you find a date that works for you.
Prepare your home, routine, and schedule. Once you’ve made the decision to get breast augmentation, the next phase of preparation is related to your home life, work life, and the surgical recovery. Besides scheduling the date for the surgery, you’ll also need to schedule at least 1 week off from work. Additionally, strenuous activities must be postponed for 3-4 weeks.
In terms of the nitty gritty details of how to prepare for breast augmentation, we will provide you with a list of instructions well in advance. These instructions will be related to:
- Keeping the incisions clean and dry
- Going home the same day as surgery (i.e. you will arrange for someone to drive you home)
- What to eat after surgery and what not to eat
- Managing discomfort and soreness
- Taking it easy for the first day but also promoting strong blood circulation
- Scheduling follow-up appointments
We are committed to providing each of our patients with a great experience. Rely on us for all the information you need in order to get ready for breast augmentation.
