How to Prepare for Breast Augmentation Surgery

Now that you have decided that you are going to have breast augmentation surgery, it is important that you know how to prepare yourself well for the process. You do not want to be unprepared on the day of surgery or unprepared for your recovery process. Here’s what you need to know to be prepared on the day of surgery and beyond.

Prepare for Recovery

Before the day of surgery, you need to be fully prepared for your recovery. You will likely want to take some time off from work, and your doctor will let you know when you can increase your activity level. During the initial weeks of your recovery you will need to wear a support garment, such as a sports bra or elastic band. Make sure you have these on hand prior to your surgery. If you may need some help around the house for the first week, you might want to make those arrangements ahead of time as well.

Prepare for the Day of Surgery

Your doctor may ask you to do a number of things to prepare for the day of surgery. Many surgeons will not perform elective surgeries unless you quit smoking  prior to the surgery. This is because smoking can cause complications. You may also be asked to take certain medications or adjust current medications. You should avoid taking aspirin or ibuprofen before surgery because they can cause bleeding. You should also stop taking any recreational drugs.

Once you are fully prepared for your breast augmentation procedure, the rest of the process is sure to go smoothly. If you need any help in preparing for your big day, contact us for more information or bring it up during your consultation.

I love Tampa Palms Plastic Surgery ~ Dr. Moseillo, Mary, Nancy & Paula. I had breast cancer and reconstruction with Dr. Moseillo several years ago and knew I would never let anyone perform surgery on me other than him. I decided I wanted to do an Upper Blepharoplasty (upper eyelid surgery). I had the surgery a few months ago, am now at my summer home in Maine and everyone is commenting on how great I look. They have no idea that I had anything done! I keep hearing, “you have amazing eyes”. I am so thrilled with the results, feel 10 years younger and if you’re thinking about this procedure, or any other for that matter, do not hesitate to go to Tampa Palms

Dr. Mosiello, plain and simply put , is the BEST ! I did a lot of research and he was the one I chose and am very thankful and grateful that I did, as I had consulted with other plastic surgeons from other cancer centers. Dr. Mosiello surpassed in every area. He and his staff truly care and are warm, friendly, compassionate and knowledgeable. Which takes the stress out of any pre surgery or procedure. Knowing you have the best surgeon in your corner is the most important part. Post surgical procedures look amazing and he has saved my life, and has made me whole again. Look no further, he IS the best.

I came to Dr. Mosiello’s practice as a reluctant patient who had just been given the diagnosis of breast cancer. I have been in several doctors’ office’s during my diagnosis and treatment and Dr. Mosiello’s office is my favorite. He is a very kind, competent surgeon who patiently answered questions and explained things fully. I was given clear post op directions and checked on by the nurse before my first post op visit and someone was always available if I had a question or concern. His staff is amazing! Melissa, Paula, Mary and Carol are all very personable and caring. This is also an office where I did not wait long periods of time to be seen. Things run smoothly and timely. I would highly recommend Dr. Mosiello to anyone in need of a plastic surgeon.
