When you first enter my practice to discuss the breast augmentation procedure, my first goal is to understand what concerns you have, what it is about your aesthetic appearance that bothers you, and what sort of treatment you are thinking about. I strive to make each patient look and feel better, and in the end, my team and I have a simple goal in mind: we want you to be happy. If I can better understand your unique aspirations and desires for your cosmetic enhancement, and we’re able to connect and define a treatment plan that will help you achieve these goals, then we proceed.
Listen to Patient Goals to Achieve Ideal Breast Augmentation Outcome
In the consultation, I first listen to what you want done, and then conduct an exam to make sure your concern is an anatomical or surgical concern, and one that can be treated with some form of cosmetic enhancement procedure. We will then continue the conversation to cover what I believe we can do, what a reasonable goal for the procedure would be, and what typical expectations and outcomes you can have. My goal is to develop a relationship so we both understand each other, so we’re both on the same page and speaking the same language to ensure our goals are aligned.
The beginning of the consultation is really the overview of the entire process. Following the medical exam, we will cover medical history, family history, social history, any prior surgical history and so on, to make sure I understand the entire picture so we can safely reach our goals and create a wonderful outcome for you.
Ultimate Goal of the Breast Augmentation Consultation
The ultimate goal in any consultation, be it for breast augmentation or a nonsurgical procedure such as Coolsculpting®, is to satisfy two stipulations: understand what your concerns are, and then match those concerns with reasonable expectations. I really strive to grasp the full extent of your motivations for pursuing cosmetic enhancement because this is a big step for anyone that requires thoughtful planning and consideration. Once we’ve reached an understanding here, we determine the course of action that will help us address those concerns, whether that’s determined to be surgical or not, to bring you through the other side of treatment with a fresh outlook. Again, my goal and that of my entire team is to help you address your cosmetic concern to improve your appearance. If you’re happy, we’re happy.
