Do’s and Don’ts Before Getting Breast Implants


While making the decision to undergo breast augmentation surgery is a big one that could change your life, improving your appearance and giving you a huge self confidence boost, there’s plenty to consider before you decide this is definitely what you want to do.

If you’re considering breast augmentation surgery, here’s a handy list of do’s and don’ts that will help you make your decision.

Do: Use MacList to Find Clinics and Cosmetic Surgeons Near You

Before undergoing any treatment you’re going to do your research, and with MacList you can find exactly what you’re looking for. MacList is the ultimate medical directory helping you find doctors and clinics near your location. It also holds information on local and overseas clinics where you can undergo breast augmentation surgery should you wish to explore this opportunity.

All the doctors and clinics featured on MacList allow you to pay for your surgery with a MacCredit payment plan, too.

Don’t: Make a Decision After One Consultation

Almost every doctor and clinic you’ll find may offer you at least one free consultation while deciding whether to undergo breast augmentation surgery. Even if you have a really good feeling about the first clinic you visit and the first consultant you meet, see at least one other before you move forward with your treatment.

Do: Decide Which Type of Breast Implants You Would Like

There are several types of breast implants and augmentation options available today. From familiar implants to more modern sculpting techniques such as removing fat from elsewhere on your body and injecting it back into your breasts for a more natural and subtle look, the choice is yours. You might decide you don’t want augmentation at all but rather require a breast lift or work done specifically on your nipples. Even subtle types of surgery can make a huge difference both to your appearance and how you feel about yourself.

Your doctor will discuss all the available options during your consultation, but if you can do your own research before you see them you’ll be much better placed to have a useful conversation and make your decision quicker.

Don’t: Blindly Follow Trends

Sometimes, all it takes is for one celebrity to undergo a particular type of breast enhancement surgery, and suddenly clinics across Australia are filled with people looking to have the same work done. While trends can be great for giving you an idea of “what’s in” from an appearance perspective, the chances are that the surgery you choose is something that you’ll be living with for the rest of your life.

Ensure your decision is based on what you feel comfortable with and what you want to achieve, and isn’t based solely on something you’ve seen in a magazine.

Do: Listen to What the Doctor Tells You Pre-Surgery

When you’ve chosen a clinic where you’ll undergo the surgery, your doctor will give you a schedule of things you should be doing pre-surgery to prepare, and also give you instructions for post-surgery so you can arrange the necessary help at home to avoid discomfort.

You’ll also need to inform your doctor of any medications you are taking or any previous medical treatments you have had. If you’re undergoing this particular surgery following a previous medical event, then you may have already had this discussion.

Everything your doctor tells you is designed to make the days and weeks both pre and post-surgery as comfortable and as stress free as possible, so make sure you listen!

Don’t: Worry About It!

If you’ve done your research, chosen a great clinic, know how you are going to pay for your treatment, and have followed your doctor’s instructions, then you have nothing to worry about. Instead of worrying about your treatment the night before, try to relax, get an early night, and look forward to enjoying your new appearance and boosted confidence once the surgery is complete and you’ve enjoyed the necessary recovery time.
