Questions to Ask During Your Consultation for Breast Augmentation

When you are ready to get breast implants, you want to make sure that you have all of the relevant information prior to your procedure. It is important that you understand the procedure itself, as well as what you can expect with  regard to results and recovery. Here are some questions to ask during your consultation for breast augmentation.

What implants will you use?

There are many different types and brands of breast implants, and you want to discuss with your doctor which one is right for you. There are silicone and saline implants. They can be teardrop shaped or round. Discuss your options with your surgeon and have him suggest what would be best for the results you are looking for.

Where will you place the implants?

There are two primary locations that the breast implants can be placed. The implant can lie behind the glandular tissue of the breast, which is called subglandular placement. Alternatively, the implant can be placed behind the chest wall muscle, which is called submuscular placement. There are many factors that should be considered when deciding which method is best, and it is important to discuss this with your surgeon.

What will recovery look like?

You may know that full recovery can take six to eight weeks, but do you really know what to expect during recovery? Make sure that you get full recovery instructions and details during your consultation so that you can make arrangements to follow recovery directions well in advance of your procedure. It is always best to be prepared. For example, you will likely need to wear a sports bra rather than a regular bra for at least part of your recovery.

You may have additional questions for the surgeon, but these three questions will help you get a basic overview of the procedure. Remember that there are no stupid questions, and Dr. Mosiello and his staff  will be happy to answer your questions .

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.
