Before Augmentation: Three Things to Consider

The decision to move forward with breast augmentation is a personal matter that is chosen by different women for different reasons. Whatever your reasons for wanting to get breast augmentation, there are three things to consider and discuss with your cosmetic surgeon before your procedure.

Breast Lift

Many women can benefit from a breast lift. It is possible that you could get the results you are looking for with a breast lift alone. If your primary concern is sagging or deflated breasts, a breast lift can restore the shape and natural feel of your breasts. In some cases a breast lift is necessary in conjunction with the breast augmentation so that you get the shape and firmness that you want rather than just the size.

Silicone or Saline?

There are many different types of implants that are used in breast augmentation procedures. All of these implants can be divided into two categories—silicone and saline. Silicone implants often give a more natural feel, while saline implants are often considered to be safer in case of a rupture. There are advantages and disadvantages to each, so it is important to discuss your options with your surgeon.


It is important that you plan the timing of your breast augmentation carefully. Total recovery from breast augmentation can take a few months, and for the first few weeks you will not be able to wear a normal bra. You will want to make sure that your breast augmentation surgery is scheduled so that your recovery period does not interfere with certain events or special occasions.

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.
