Your breast augmentation consultation is the first step on your journey to your desired bust size and shape. During this appointment, you’ll meet our board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Kevin Bounds, and our office staff. There are many details involved in breast augmentation, and your consultation will go over your options along with your medical history and personal preferences. You’ll have the opportunity to ask questions and ensure this is the best procedure to help you reach your breast and body goals.
1. Review Photos of Dr. Bound’s Patients
Part of your breast augmentation consult includes looking over the results of other women who chose Dr. Bounds to perform their procedure. You can see photos of women with similar attributes to visualize your potential results after recovery.
Choosing your plastic surgeon is a critical part of the process, and it’s essential to choose a board-certified plastic surgeon with extensive experience in breast augmentation surgery for a safe, reliable outcome. Dr. Bounds specializes in breast surgery and is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). ABPS is the only board for plastic surgery recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties.
2. Receive Information About Breast Implant Types
Dr. Bounds will explain the types of breast implants available to you. One of your implant choices is the filling. Saline implants are silicone shells filled with a saltwater solution (saline), and silicone implants contain a cohesive silicone gel that is more form stable. Saline and silicone implants offer different benefits, which Dr. Bounds will discuss with you.
3. A Brief Examination
During your breast augmentation consult, Dr. Bounds will perform a short exam of your breasts and evaluate your anatomy. The goal of breast augmentation is typically to increase breast size for a more proportionate figure. Sometimes, your anatomy may limit breast implant size to avoid an unnatural appearance.
4. Try on Implant Sizers
It’s important to have an idea of what your final results will look like after breast augmentation to ensure you choose the implant size and type that is best for you. Dr. Bounds will have you try on implant sizers inside a non-padded bra to help you picture what you will look like with bigger breasts. You may try several different sizes to compare your options and make the right choice for you and your anatomy.
