What Should I Ask During My Breast Augmentation Consultation?

At BEAUTY by BUFORD, we take pride in guaranteeing our patients are educated on all their options and chosen procedures and have reasonable expectations. Not only is this crucial for patient safety and satisfaction, but it also helps you feel confident and at ease every step of the way. Below is a list of questions you should ask during your breast augmentation consultation to help you cover as much as possible. 

Which Is Right For Me: A Breast Lift Or Breast Augmentation?

One of the first questions you’ll want to ask Dr. Buford is whether you should get breast augmentation surgery or a breast lift (or both!). Though the two terms are sometimes used interchangeably, they are not the same.

Discuss your goals and concerns honestly with Dr. Buford. Once he has a good understanding of what you want to achieve, he’ll go over the two breast surgeries and guide you through choosing the best option for you.

Which Breast Augmentation Procedure Do You Recommend For Me?

If you determine that breast augmentation is what you’re after, you’ve got to then make the choice of what kind of breast augmentation you’d like to get! There are fat transfer, saline implant, and silicone implant breast augmentations, and deciding between them is like choosing between three unique bars—all have charm, but it all comes down to what vibe you’re going for.

Dr. Buford’s got the skills to help you nail down your choice that fits just right with your body and the look you’re aiming for. Think of him as your personal beauty bartender, mixing up the perfect blend of safety, artistry, and you-ness.

How Much Does A Breast Augmentation Cost?

At BEAUTY by BUFORD, we don’t believe in hiding the financial side of the process. You deserve to know everything up front! At your consultation, we encourage you to ask about insurance, cost, how your preferences affect the final price, and payment so that you can create the body of your dreams without compromising in other areas of your life.

What Is The Procedure Like?

Even though you’ll be sleeping through the surgery, you should still ask what the surgery will be like. Though breast augmentations may seem like magic, you’re still undergoing surgery, and that’s not something you should take lightly.

What Should I Ask During My Breast Augmentation Consultation?

Have You Done Many Breast Augmentations?

Choosing the right surgeon for your breast augmentation isn’t just about credentials; it’s about connecting with someone who gets your vision and has the skills to bring it to life. That’s why it is crucial to ask about their experience and review their breast augmentation before-and-after gallery. It’s like checking out a restaurant’s reviews before booking a table at a fancy restaurant—you want to know you’re in for a treat. 

We’ll let Dr. Buford introduce himself and detail his experience at your consultation, but we will say that he’s a board-certified surgeon, author of The Boob Job Bible, and would be happy to discuss his past work with you to instill confidence and trust. 

What Can I Expect In The Recovery Process?

After your breast augmentation, the recovery phase is your next important step toward seeing the beautiful results. It’s essential to ask about what this period will look like because, let’s face it, healing from surgery is no easy task! It will affect your daily life and routine. You need to be able to plan your surgery and coordinate post-op care accordingly. Understanding these details upfront can minimize surprises, allowing you to focus on the exciting changes ahead.

Are There Any Potential Risks?

To make an informed decision about your body, knowing about potential risks is just as essential as dreaming about the perfect outcome. Like checking the weather before a big outdoor event, you want to be prepared for any scenario. That’s why asking Dr. Buford about the risks during your consultation is a must. He’s all about transparency. 

This conversation is your opportunity to learn about potential complications and how they are managed and prevented. Knowing that there’s a plan for any possible outcome will give you peace of mind. Like they say, hope for the best and plan for the worst so you can proceed informed and confidently.

How Will A Breast Augmentation Affect Breastfeeding & Mammograms?

Are you a breastfeeding mom, planning to be a breastfeeding mom, or have a higher-than-average chance of developing cancer? If so, you need to consider how a breast augmentation might affect breastfeeding and mammograms. Dr. Buford will walk you through how different augmentation options might influence your ability to breastfeed in the future or how implants could impact the clarity and process of mammograms. We stress that being aware of how your cosmetic surgeries could intertwine with your health and lifestyle choices down the line. Your safety and well-being is our number one priority!
