Decisions to make before surgery:

• Decide on your surgeon

Make sure to research this thoroughly; ask your friends and family for advice if they have had experience with any plastic surgeons. When you have decided on a final surgeon, ask them for a reference list and to show you plenty before and after pictures. Make sure the surgeon is board-certified; this will ensure you are receiving quality service.
• Choose a type of implant

Your surgeon should be able to guide you through the process of choosing either a saline or silicon breast implant.

• Choose a texture

If you do not know what this is you have not done your research. You will have to choose the type of surface of your implant, either a textured or smooth surface.

• Size

This is probably the most important thing to consider. You need to take your body shape into consideration and how comfortable you will be. Make sure this is your decision and not someone else's influence.
