Dr. Nasir will help the patient through the preparation process and provide the necessary guidelines and instructions. Patients in New Haven, Westport, CT, and surrounding communities have an opportunity to receive breast augmentation from him.
Determining Cosmetic Goals
As a first step in preparation, the patient should closely evaluate what about her breast appearance dissatisfies her and why she wants to have breast implant plastic surgery. Clarity on this point will help her to explain to the surgeon during the initial consultation about her specific cosmetic needs and goals.
A major procedure such as breast augmentation is a personal journey for the patient, and she should choose it only because she wants it and not because she may be influenced by someone else. She should ideally visit the surgeon’s website and familiarize herself with the practice and the procedure in order to be prepared for a more productive consultation.
Breast Implant Online Forums
Popular Internet forums such as RealSelf and other online communities and social networks provide a woman with the opportunity to explore more about breast augmentation and get real-world advice and insights. She may be able to engage with other women who have gone through breast augmentation in the past and are willing to share their personal experience.
Going through the first-hand accounts of previous patients and having access to community support will help a woman discover whether she is ready breast implant surgery. Several of her doubts and concerns could be addressed during online conversations with past patients.
Meeting Candidacy Requisites
The cosmetic surgeon will determine a woman’s candidacy for breast augmentation before accepting her for this surgery. She should arrange for her previous health records from the physician and specialists to be sent over to the surgeon’s office. She should avoid having any near-term plans for a weight loss program or a pregnancy after the surgery.
The patient should request for and review as many before and after photographs as possible in order to develop realistic expectations from breast augmentation. She should ideally have a list of questions ready, which she may ask during her consultation.
She should review as many before and after images as possible in order to develop reasonable expectations from breast augmentation. She should also prepare a list of questions that she wants to ask the surgeon at the time of initial consultation.
She could check out pictures online which is wonderful since someone can make a pivotal decision or come to a vital conclusion without ever having to leave her home. This will save the potential patient some time and certainly help her out since she could make a decision without anyone else even knowing she was contemplating this. If she wants to go ahead with the breast augmentation she should be feeling less anxious since she will have a better understanding on what to expect.
If she has any questions though, she should call up Dr. Nasir’s office. The patient should not want to make any assumptions unless she knows something for sure.
