Preparing for Breast Augmentation Surgery

Preparing for Breast Augmentation Surgery

Breast augmentation surgery is a transformative step towards achieving your aesthetic goals. At Modern Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, we are committed to guiding you through every stage of this journey. In this blog, we’ll discuss essential pre-operative tips, what to expect during consultations, and how to prepare both physically and mentally for your breast augmentation surgery.

What is Breast Augmentation?

Breast augmentation, also known as augmentation mammoplasty, is a surgical procedure designed to enhance the size and shape of the breasts. This procedure can help restore breast volume lost after weight reduction or pregnancy, achieve a more rounded breast shape, or improve natural breast size asymmetry. At Modern Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, our expert surgeons use advanced techniques and high-quality implants to ensure natural-looking and satisfying results.

Pre-operative Tips

Preparing for your breast augmentation surgery is crucial for a smooth procedure and optimal recovery. Here are some essential tips:

Medical Evaluation

Undergo a thorough medical evaluation to ensure you are in good health and a suitable candidate for surgery. This may include blood tests, mammograms, or other diagnostic tests as your surgeon advises.

Medication Management

Discuss any medications, supplements, or herbal remedies you take with your surgeon. You may need to stop taking certain medications, such as aspirin or anti-inflammatory drugs, that can increase bleeding risks.

Smoking and Alcohol

Avoid smoking and limit alcohol consumption several weeks before and after surgery, as these can interfere with healing and increase the risk of complications.

What to Expect During Consultations


Consultations are a vital part of the breast augmentation process. At Modern Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, our consultations are designed to provide you with all the information you need and to tailor the procedure to your specific goals and expectations.

Discussion of Goals

Your surgeon will discuss your aesthetic goals, including your desired breast size and shape. Bringing reference photos can be helpful.

Medical History

A comprehensive review of your medical history will be conducted to ensure your safety and suitability for the procedure.

Implant Options

Your surgeon will explain the different types of implants (saline or silicone), their benefits, and the most appropriate placement options (submuscular or subglandular) for your body type and goals.

Surgical Plan

A personalized surgical plan will be developed, including details about the incision location, implant type, and expected outcomes.

Preparing Physically and Mentally

Physical and mental preparation is key to a successful breast augmentation surgery and recovery.

Healthy Lifestyle

Maintain a healthy diet and exercise routine to keep your body in optimal condition for surgery and healing.

Support System

Arrange for a family member or friend to assist you during the initial recovery period, as you will need help with daily activities.

Mental Preparation

Prepare mentally for the changes to your body and the recovery process. This can include practicing relaxation techniques, setting realistic expectations, and discussing concerns with your surgeon.
