During the in-depth consultation, we will thoroughly review your goals and expectations. Patients are encouraged to bring photographs of several breast results that best represent their desired look. These will not only help me understand the result you have imagined but also shape our discussion on how your goals will be achieved. In some instances, this may necessitate just a lift. In others, a lift as well as an implant will be required. This is a decision we will make together after a thorough discussion of the risks and benefits of each portion of the procedure.
During your consultation, many measurements are recorded, which ultimately facilitate incision location, lift technique and implant choice, if required. Implants are either silicone or saline, and this is a decision that we will make together. Breast implants have been rigorously studied, demonstrating saline and silicone to have equivalent safety profiles.
