How to Prepare for Your Breast Augmentation

After your procedure, you want to ensure that you have a smooth and easy recovery. When you prepare in advance, you can resume your normal lifestyle sooner. If you’ve chosen the new IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants for their unique structure and enhanced safety features, you’ll go into your surgery confident you’ve made the best choice on the market today. Here’s what you can do to prep for your procedure.

Get a Mammogram

Depending on your plastic surgeon, you may be required to undergo a pre-operative mammogram. Most doctors encourage you to do this, so they will have a standard mammogram to compare future ones too.

Follow Your Surgeon’s Instructions

You’ll be given a list of pre-operative instructions to follow before your breast augmentation. It’s important that you do exactly as your surgeon recommends to avoid any complications during surgery. Though some instructions may seem unnecessary, your doctor should be willing to explain in detail why they are required. Some common instructions you’ll see may include:

  • Avoid typical drugs like ibuprofen as they may thin the blood.
  • Don’t wear jewelry on any part of your body on the day of the surgery.
  • Do not eat or drink anything 8 hours before surgery.
  • If you’re a smoker, quit if possible.
  • Drink lots of water.
  • Wear a shirt that buttons or zips in the front.

Patients who want their transition to new breast implants to be an easy one should observe and keep all the guidelines their surgeon gives to them.

Take Care of Household Chores

Clean up around the house, make meals in advance if you can, pay all bills, and finish all your laundry before you go in for surgery. Treat your breast augmentation as you would any other surgery. Realize that you’re going to need time to recoup and recover.  Ask a friend or family member to stay with you for the first few days after surgery to ensure you can get around ok and get plenty of rest.

Why IDEAL IMPLANTS May Be Right For You

If you’re still deciding which breast implants to choose, you should ask your doctor if they offer the IDEAL IMPLANT. These implants can offer you peace of mind! Since the IDEAL IMPLANT is filled with saline, which has no harmful effects to your body, you won’t need to spend time before surgery stressing about future leaks. The safety of saline choice is the IDEAL IMPLANT.
