Preparing for your consultation for Breast Augmentation

Posted on Nov 19, 2012 by Keri Eichhorn

You've made the call to schedule your consultation for breast augmentation, now what?  Here is some helpful tips to help you be fully prepared  to meet with Kansas City's best plastic surgeon, Dr. Matt Chhatre, to talk about breast augmentation.

Each breast augmentation is customized to the patients body type and desires. Dr. Chhatre wants to make sure he meets your desires and give you the look you're hoping for.  Bringing in some pictures of the look you're going for, and even some that you don't like will help Dr. Chhatre see in your mind's eye.  Unfortunately, cup sizes can vary from store to store, so Dr. Chhatre will need to know a little more than what cup size you're looking for.  Bringing in some before and after pictures will really help. Make sure to pick people with your same body type(height and weight) as well as pre augmentation cup size.  Dr. Chhatre places all of the implants under the muscle, so that may be something to look at as well. 

Write down and bring any questions that you have for Dr. Chhatre so you can make sure that all of your concerns are addressed during your appointment.  Children are welcome, however, we do recommend leaving your children at home so that we can have all of your attention.  Dr. Chhatre's nurse, Anne, will also help you with "trying on" implants, so you may want to wear some form fitting clothes and bring a friend or a spouse along for an extra opinion.  This will help give you an idea of sizing and how the implants will enhance your look.
