When you arrive at the clinic you will need to fill out a pre-operative health questionnaire. He will then be taken through to meet with the consultant surgeon where you will have a full opportunity to outline your ideas, concerns, and expectations for the surgery.

Your surgeon will then take a full medical history as well as what medicines you may be taking and whether you are a smoker or not. A physical examination will then be performed and this will include the surgeon taking detailed measurements which will be used to advise you on the most appropriate choice of breast implants for your body frame. This will help you to achieve the best breast enlargement results.
