A breast augmentation consultation is a valuable opportunity for you to meet with and get to know a surgeon you are considering for your procedure. At the same time, you can discuss your surgical goals and learn about the many options and variables of breast augmentation, which will ultimately help you make more informed treatment choices. If you live in the Tampa, Florida, area, you can consult with Dr. Daniel Greenwald, a board-certified plastic surgeon and founder of Bayshore Plastic Surgery. Consistently named one of the Best Doctors in Tampa Bay, as well as one of the Best Doctors in America, Dr. Greenwald has earned an outstanding nationwide reputation as a breast surgeon, and he is committed to providing attentive, world-class patient care.

When you meet with Dr. Greenwald at his comfortable office in Tampa, FL, he will ask you questions about your aesthetic concerns and goals in order to determine if you are a good candidate for breast augmentation. As part of that process, he will a perform physical examination to evaluate the size and shape of your breasts, the thickness and elasticity of your skin, the positioning of your nipples, and the depth of the inframammary crease underneath each breast.

If Dr. Greenwald believes that breast augmentation is appropriate for you, he will educate you about the surgery and encourage you to ask as many questions as you’d like in order to ensure that you are completely comfortable with the procedure he recommends. To make the most of your consultation, you may want to prepare a list of discussion topics in advance so that you won’t forget anything. For instance, here are some questions about breast augmentation that you’ll probably want to ask:

  • What are the differences between silicone, “gummy bear,” and saline implants? Which do you recommend for me? Why?
  • Would it be possible for me to “try on” different breast implant sizes prior to my surgery?
  • Which implant size do you believe would be best for me, given my goals, lifestyle, and body frame?
  • What are the differences between the various implant incision patterns? Which do you recommend for me? Why?
  • To achieve my goals, will I need a breast lift in addition to breast augmentation?
  • Will a breast augmentation procedure affect my ability to breastfeed?
  • What can I expect during my recovery?

As Dr. Greenwald answers your questions, he will explain the importance of balancing four key equations when planning breast augmentation surgery to ensure the best possible result. Those equations are: (1) top-to-bottom proportionality between your shoulders, bust, waist, and hips, (2) left-to-right symmetry between your breasts; (3) an appropriate balance between your desired breast volume and your existing skin; and (4) a proper match between the implant you select and your chest “footprint.”
