Breast Implants: How Much Research Should You Do?

Breast Implants: How Much Research Should You Do?

Patients considering breast implants at my Albany, NY, office often tell me similar things when they come in for their consultation. One of the most common things they reveal is that they’re overwhelmed by the amount of information available about breast augmentation. Perhaps more than any other plastic surgery procedure, breast augmentation comes with a wealth of options to select and decisions to make.

My Albany, NY, patients tell me that most of their questions come up after their procedure, so now I’d like to expand on the topic of recovery, specifically when you should call your doctor’s office after your procedure. Often after surgery, patients worry that they are bothering their physicians or staff by calling with questions. That is far from the truth. A good surgeon enjoys checking in with his or her patients, and encourages questions and dialogue after a procedure. … Continue reading »

Just as important as viewing the results of actual Albany patients, however, is doing so with the right techniques in mind; there’s more to it than simply clicking through photos.
