Things to Do To Prepare for Breast Implant Surgery

It is extremely important that you prepare for your Beverly Hills breast implant surgery as much as you can. The time leading up to the procedure, and after, can be exciting but stressful if you aren’t prepared. Along with the recommendations you will receive directly from Dr. Hovsepian, below are some helpful tips to help you go through this change with as little worry as possible.

Step 1

First of all, be sure you arrange for a friend or relative to be your mode of transportation, to and from the procedure. It is also a good idea to ask this person to stay with you up to 24 hours after the breast augmentation to help you with anything you might need, as you will be on pain medication and sore from the procedure.

Step 2

This step is for women who have small children at the time of surgery. Be sure to arrange for their care. It is helpful to prepare extra food while you are in recovery, not only for them but for yourself as well. Stock up on fluids and snacks such as crackers that will be easy to digest. It is important to relax while you recover to speed up the process.

Step 3

Keep track of any prescriptions you need and that they are filled and in an easily accessible location. You physician will go over this with you, but it is important to be aware of when you will be able to resume other activities such as driving a car and exercising.

Step 4

In the weeks leading up to your procedure, it is important to maintain a healthy diet. The healthier you are, the easier it will be for your body to recover. Be sure to exercise, it doesn’t have to be intense. Just 30 minutes of walking a day will improve your physical health.

Step 5

Make sure you are prepared with the essentials on the day of surgery. Typically, you will only need your identification and a small bag with any medications you might need and paperwork.

These are just a few of the steps you should consider before your Beverly Hills breast augmentation procedure. You will go over everything with Dr. Hovsepian at your consultation to get a full idea of how you can be prepared for the surgery.
