Finding The Plastic Surgery Options That Will Work For You

December 20, 2018

Setting Realistic Expectations Before Your Plastic Surgery

According to statistics gathered by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, 17.5 million cosmetic plastic surgery procedures were performed in the United States in 2017. Plastic surgery options abound, giving women the tools to feel empowered and confident in their skin. But before you schedule your procedure, you should set realistic expectations about what plastic surgery can do in your unique situation. You may be tempted to copy your neighbor after she got great looking results from her breast augmentation. Or you see how your sister looks after her “mommy makeover” and want the same thing for yourself. The truth is that every woman is unique and what works for one woman won’t always work for you. Dr. Russell Babbitt works hard to create an individualized treatment plan for each patient so they can get the results they desire. He will also help you set realistic expectations about your experience and what plastic surgery can and cannot accomplish.


Your Plastic Surgery Consultation: Learn About Breast Augmentations

Breast augmentation is the most popular cosmetic surgery in the United States, with 300,378 procedures performed in 2017. Breast augmentation can be a great way to improve your self-esteem and love your body. But before you begin thinking about surgery or breast augmentation recovery, you need to consider your breast implant options such as size, placement, and type.

Breast Implant Size - Body shape, existing breast tissue, chest width, and other factors will help you and your surgeon determine the best breast implant size. A 350cc breast implant will look very different from person to person, so instead of thinking about the size of implants you want, think about your final result. A great breast augmentation will enhance your natural beauty and be tailored to your needs.


Breast Implant Placement - Your surgeon will explain the benefits and compromises of placing your breast implant above the muscle or below the muscle. Much like breast implant size, placement may depend on your body type.


Breast Implant Type - Saline, silicone gel, and IDEAL IMPLANT® Structured Breast Implants will all provide different aesthetic results, as well as different complication rates. IDEAL IMPLANT Structured Breast Implants are known for offering a natural looking result with peace of mind. According to the latest FDA core trial data IDEAL IMPLANT also offers one of the lowest rates of rupture and capsular contracture available today.

Take time to learn about all your plastic surgery options so you can pick the ones that will help you achieve your goals. Look at before and after pictures with women who have similar “before bodies” to you. Take these pictures to your consultation so that Dr. Babbitt can see clearly the look you wanting. Be aware that you may need a combination surgery, such as a breast lift with augmentation, to reach your goals.


Breast Augmentation Recovery And Beyond

Prepare yourself physically, mentally, and emotionally for your life after breast augmentation by learning what to expect. Most women are able to go home the same day they have surgery, but will not be able to drive themselves. Some pain, swelling, and bruising is normal for a few weeks after surgery. Plan to have help around the house, especially if you have small children, to give your body time to heal. Follow your surgeon’s instructions regarding medications, light duty, and not exercising until cleared to do so.


Why You Need A Skilled Plastic Surgeon

When you’re looking for a plastic surgeon you need someone who is experienced and skilled. Your surgeon should always be open and honest with you about what you can and cannot expect from plastic surgery. The best surgeons will help you recognize that even with the best plastic surgery options some results may be impossible to achieve. Instead of comparing you to models or actresses, your surgeon should help you realize your own potential and enhance your natural beauty.
