Dr. David Mosier discusses what patients can expect when undergoing breast augmentation, from the consultation to post-operative recovery.
Austin, TX — Dr. David Mosier, a board-certified plastic surgeon in Austin, is committed to helping people achieve their aesthetic goals through cosmetic surgery. At the Plastic Surgery Center of Austin, he says breast augmentation is one of the most popular procedures he performs. To help these patients reach their ideal outcome, Dr. Mosier works closely with them to explain the different surgical options available, as well as what they can expect from surgery through recovery.
During the consultation process, Dr. Mosier says there are several options the patient must think about. This includes options such as breast implant size and incision placement. He says the size of breast implants, a common uncertainty for patients, will vary according to the individual’s breast dimensions, skin and muscle laxity, as well as their cosmetic goals. To determine which size aligns closest with the patient’s goals, Dr. Mosier conducts an examination to determine the desired height, width and projection of the breasts. He will also provide a thorough explanation of various incision options, thereby helping the patient better understand how each choice can affect their outcome.
Dr. Mosier does his best to help patients form realistic expectations for their procedure, while providing them with important information about each step of the process. Following their breast augmentation procedure, he recommends patients take three to five days off work to rest. Although everyone heals differently, Dr. Mosier helps patients get an idea of what they can expect during recovery, allowing them to make preparations ahead of time to ensure a smooth recuperation process.
The Austin plastic surgeon recommends anyone interested in breast enhancement surgery to seek a board-certified plastic surgeon to learn how the procedure can help them reach their goals.
