Preparing for Breast Augmentation Surgery

The most important part of your breast augmentation process is consulting Dr. Wendell Perry, our board-certified plastic surgeon. During a consultation, you should plan to ask questions and learn as much as you can about your breast augmentation procedure. If you’re wondering what to expect from your breast augmentation procedure, then here are some of the best ways to prepare for your surgery and ensure it goes smoothly.

Eat Healthy and Exercise

Eating healthy, staying hydrated, and exercising regularly can help you prepare for the recovery process. A healthy, balanced diet high in proteins, vegetables, and fruits helps the body heal faster.

Exercise is vital to help strengthen your body and help it better endure the taxing surgical process. Start an exercise program one month before your surgery to prepare for recovery, and make sure it includes both cardiovascular and strengthening exercises.

Stop Smoking

It’s essential to stop smoking, as it significantly reduces your capacity for healing. Before surgery, you should abstain from nicotine products for at least four weeks. You should also plan to abstain from smoking and nicotine products for several weeks after surgery.

Learn and Do Your Research

Learn as much as you can about breast augmentation. Research the pros and cons of each type of implant and your plastic surgeon’s experience and training. It’s always best to look at before-and-after images of other breast augmentation patients to make sure your plastic surgeon can achieve the look you’re hoping for, and can also tailor your results to your specific body.

Get Yourself Into Good Emotional Head Space

Surgery can take a toll on your mind and body. It’s important to go into your plastic surgery with realistic expectations about your results and recovery process, understanding that it will take time to heal and enjoy your full results. Your plastic surgeon can give you the best idea of what you can expect afterward, so make sure to rely on your plastic surgeon’s expertise.
