You have crossed the first hurdle by meeting your Patient Coordinator, meaning you are one step closer to your dream procedure and body confidence. Now it’s time to meet the surgeon your PC thinks you will be best suited to give you your desired result. So what happens now? What should I take? What should I ask? Hopefully this top tip guide will help.
1. Bring Someone With You
Someone you are close to obviously not a stranger! This is important as the excitement of the experience with the overload of information means you’re likely to forget a lot of what you heard. Having a best friend, mother or partner there means they will pick up the information you may not.
2. Make a List of Questions
Not that you want your consultation to turn into an interview but the list will work as a check list for yourself. Wait until the end of the consultation as majority of the questions you have your surgeon will answer throughout.
It is normal to have nerves. Taking your clothes off in front of a complete stranger is not something anyone enjoys, (unless you’re a streaker) but your surgeon is a medical professional and they will do their upmost to make you feel comfortable.
4. Have Realistic Expectations
This may sound strange but it is important to listen to the advice of the surgeon as they want the best result for you. Your surgeon may recommend additional procedures to achieve the look you want. For example, you may require an uplift
along with your breast enlargement
or you require a tummy tuck
along with your liposuction
. It is obviously disheartening but rest assured our surgeons know the best way to achieve your desired look. All MYA surgeon have exceptional reputations and want all patients to be happy with their final result so will only carry out a procedure knowing this.
5. Clothing for Breast Patients
As the surgeon will need to examine and measure your breasts, remember to where a top and trousers. Something that is easy to take on and off. We would recommend not to wear a dress as you will feel more uncomfortable standing in your knickers.
