I think that deciding to undergo a surgical procedure requires a lot of thought. Fortunately, breast augmentation is a very safe procedure and I would say that patients are usually very happy they elected to have this done. I think that one has to do their research. They should learn about the types of implants available, the incisions used, the pocket position, the potential risks, to name a few. Just as important, the patient has to find a doctor and his staff that she feels comfortable with and feels that will give her a good result and proper preoperative and postoperative care. This may require a patient to meet with several doctors before deciding on a specific surgeon.
