Consultation with Dr. Tavoussi about Breast Augmentation Surgery

The success and safety of your breast augmentation procedure depends very much on your being completely candid during your consultation. You’ll be asked a number of questions about your health, desires and lifestyle. Breast Augmentation Surgery is one of many cosmetic surgery procedures Dr. Tavoussi performs. It is a very satisfying procedure because the results are quite dramatic and the effect it usually has on the patients is deep.

During the initial consultation, Dr. Tavoussi will determine what type of breast procedure is best for you. He will discuss the type of implants that are available and the differences between them and postoperative expectations. You will be given a bra to wear and different size implants will be tried so that you can decide what size would best fit your body and fulfill your expectations. The sizing is very important aspect of the consultation as one of the most frequent reason patients undergo second surgery is that they are not happy with size of the breasts after the initial surgery.

We have had a number of patients that had breast augmentation done in other places, who had their implants replaced with a larger size implants. These patients had their surgeon determine their sizes. Although, we as surgeons can evaluate your body and determine the best breast implants size for you, it seems that majority of patients may have a different opinion about the size that they expect or desire to be.

We, therefore, allow patients to determine their sizes by placing different sizer’s in their bra until they are fully satisfied with their choice, but Dr. Tavoussi will inform you of the consequence of your choice if it is well above what your body can handle. These will include eventual droopiness of the breasts as well as neck and shoulder pain. You should also note that no result can be guaranteed but Dr. Tavoussi tries to achieve the closest to that if not the exact one.
