Breast augmentation can be expedited

hi beachgirl22: I find that in my practice , when a patient has a clear idea of what she wants, the opportunity opens up to get the surgery expedited. Good health, a responsive home support system and no reasons for delays would be in your favor. If you have done your homework and you are 100% ready, take the next step and work out the details with your plastic surgeon. Best of luck. Dr. H

It's up to your PS. If you can get your bloodwork and have no contraindications to surgery, it is possible.

How soon can you get Breast Augmentation

If you are comfortable with your doctor, size and decision to have surgery, you can do it whenever there is availability. Be certain not to take any blood thinning medicines like aspirin or NSAIDS for 10 days prior to surgery. It is much better not to smoke or breathe second hand smoke for a month before surgery.

Did you get them?

If you have done your homework on your doctor, have given this procedure enough thought that you are certain you want this, and time is available that is good for your schedule, the go for it! Things that will prevent you from proceeding would be medications known to contribute to bleeding such as aspirin, anti-inflammatories and anticoagulants.

Probabaly about a week

Every practice is different but in most cases breast augmentation surgery takes less than an hour to perform so typically the procedure can be "added on" to the end of an operating day. Of course the surgeon, operating facility, anesthesiologist and your schedules must all coincide but in most cases you could probably get in within a week or so. Good Luck!

Timing of breast aug surgery

The timing of your surgery is dependent upon the schedule of you and your surgeon. That being said, do not rush into surgery - this is surgery and should not be taken lightly.

Take Your Time and Make the Right Choice

Usually a plastic surgeon can get you into the operating room relatively quickly but you may need to have some basic bloodwork performed before the operation. Make sure that you have a reputable and legitimate Board Certified Plastic Surgeon examine you and make sure you ask all of your questions in advance. Just because someone can get you into the operating room quickly does not mean that he or she will do a good job. Remember, you only have one set of breasts, take your time and do it right the first time.

Scheduling breast augmentation

Most surgeons would have you wait at least 2 weeks before scheduling your surgery. This is a big decision in life so you don't want to rush it. Pick your PS very carefully and consider getting more than one opinion. If you don't feel totally comfortable with your PS, then go see someone else.

A day may be too soon

Dear Beachgirl, The important thing is choosing the right surgeon. This is surgery and you don't want to rush into it. Most surgeons can get you in within a few weeks. But remember, you still need bloodwork, etc before your surgery. Make sure you are making the right decision and discuss your size preference with the doctor. There are many sizes and now shaped implants that may be better for you.

Good luck with your decision. Dr Schuster in Boca Raton.
