contact us

Have you ever felt insecure about your breasts? Some women lose mass in their breasts after they lose weight or have a pregnancy. Other women have naturally small breasts and want to find a way to compensate for what they were endowed with. Regardless of your situation, the Birmingham Cosmetic Clinic has a solution for you.

Are You a Viable Candidate?

Before starting your search for the perfect breast augmentation process, you’ll need to make sure you fulfill all the requirements. Before receiving implants, you’ll need to make sure that you:

  • Are over the age of 18
  • Are finished having children
  • Are in good health
  • Understand the process
  • Are emotionally balanced

If you meet these requirements, you’ll be able to meet with specialists to talk about the process further. They’ll help you decide which procedure would be best for you.

How Should You Prepare?

Some of these instructions may vary depending on your doctor, but Dr. Rifai from the Birmingham Cosmetic Surgery Clinic will ask you to do the following.

If you have a smoking habit, you’ll need to stop before undergoing the augmentation process. Smoking decreases the amount of oxygen found in your system and can cause complications when your body tries to heal after the surgery. To ensure your safe recovery, you’ll need to stop the habit before undergoing the surgery.

It is important to make sure that you are of infection before scheduling a surgery, as this can also cause complications.

Don’t use any medications not prescribed by your surgeon. Typically, you’ll need to refrain from using any sort of over-the-counter medicine such as ibuprofen or Tylenol, and cut out vitamin and herbal supplements, for at least 30 days prior to your surgery.

Avoid wearing any makeup, jewelry (including body piercings), hair accessories, or contact lenses during the surgery. These can interfere with your procedure and be harmful to you.

Additionally, you’ll want to abstain from alcohol for at least 24 hours prior to the augmentation, and refrain from eating or drinking for at least eight hours before the start of your surgery.

If you’re interested in having a breast augmentation done, you’ll find a variety of solutions that will interest you. Make sure that you’re well prepared for these procedures and are able to recover quickly.
