I have decided to go ahead with breast enlargement surgery so what happens next?

If you are satisfied with everything discussed in this consultation then you can go ahead. However, most surgeons will recommend that you take a couple of weeks to think about it before making a final decision.

At the end of the day it is your decision, so take your time over this. Remember, you can change your mind at any time, even up to the day of the surgery itself.

If you are ready to go ahead then you will have a detailed discussion with your surgeon about the breast augmentation procedure. He/she will run through everything about this surgery, and what you will need to do before and after the surgery.

Your surgeon will then take a full medical history. Cosmetic surgery works best for those patients who are in good health so ensure that you are in the best shape you can be for your surgery.

If you are taking any medication or have any allergies then mention these. This is very important as failure to do so could result in complications. You may think that mentioning these could rule you out from surgery but that is not always the case.

You must be honest about your health and mention any past or current medical conditions. If you have had surgery before then also mention this. Your surgeon is concerned with your wellbeing and it is important that he/she has all the information he/she needs about you.

If you have given your permission then your surgeon will take a series of ‘before’ photographs. These will be compared with photographs taken after your surgery.

You will then be asked to sign consent forms which gives you permission for the surgery to take place. Your surgeon may write to your GP informing him of your surgery.

You will also be given advice on how to prepare for your surgery.
