Elective plastic surgery differs from almost any other type of medical care that you will receive. Because ultimately you, as the patient, get to decide what to do, or at the very least be pivotal in the decision making process, especially when it comes to breast augmentation. As a surgeon, this is a part of my daily life and work. But most patients are not so accustomed to making these types of decisions. This can lead to a lot or rethinking or overthinking of the surgical plan. And, of course, when does this happen the most? The night before surgery. Or even the day of surgery.
And it seems that this happens most in dealing with breast implants, specifically the size of breast implants. Of course it’s normal to rethink things and to worry about the outcome. So if you find yourself going back and forth about your breast implant size the closer you get to your surgery, here's what to keep in mind.
