Dr. John W. Tyrone believes communication and patient education are the keys to successful breast augmentation surgery. During an initial consultation, Dr. Tyrone will assess your candidacy for the procedure, take note of your cosmetic goals, and recommend treatment options such as the best type of implant to meet your goals. Your breast augmentation consultation at our Jacksonville, FL-area plastic surgery practice will also allow you to ask questions and express your concerns so that you can make an informed decision about undergoing the procedure. If you have been considering breast augmentation and would like to schedule a consultation, please contact our office today.
A Focus on Your Goals
During consultations, Dr. Tyrone takes the time to get to know his patients and understand why they wish to undergo breast augmentation. Understanding your goals allows him to fully customize the treatment to provide the results you desire. He will carefully explain how the procedure is performed, what you can expect on the day of surgery, and what to expect during recovery. Having performed many successful procedures, Dr. Tyrone knows that educated patients make better decisions regarding their care, and are more likely to experience satisfaction with their results.
Ensuring Your Comfort and Safety
Your comfort and safety are Dr. Tyrone's top priorities, so your consultation will involve an analysis of your medical and surgical history, any medications you are taking, allergies or hypersensitivities, and other factors. If you are a smoker, you will be advised to abstain for a period before surgery – or preferably stop the habit altogether – since nicotine can interfere with the healing process. It is important to be open and honest during your consultation to minimize the risk of any complications during your procedure.
Planning Your Procedure
There are many options to consider in breast augmentation surgery, and Dr. Tyrone will help you to fully understand which options can help you achieve your specific goals. He can recommend a size and shape of breast implant based upon your body type and the enhancement you wish to achieve. He will discuss the advantages of silicone and saline implants, and help you decide which will provide the results you desire. During this time, you will have the opportunity to view many before and after images of our patients to help you decide which options are best for you.
You and Dr. Tyrone will also discuss incisions and placement. Implants can be placed either above or below the pectoral muscle, and there are different incision techniques used to insert the implant. Dr. Tyrone will ask questions about your goals and lifestyle to determine which of these options are best for you. For example, if you lead an especially active lifestyle, he may recommend subglandular placement (above the pectoral muscle).
