Preparing for Implant consultations
If you have considered getting muscle implants you should seek the advice of a cosmetic surgeon. Be prepared to be completely honest with the surgeon about what you want and the expectations you have about getting this procedure.
Listen carefully to the surgeon and be ready to explain your lifestyle, your activity choices, and your concerns.
Ask the doctor about the cost associated with the procedure and whether your medical insurance will cover any or part of that cost. When these surgeries are done as reconstructive surgeries after accidents or illness many insurance providers will cover the cost. When the surgery is done just for cosmetic looks because you have not gotten the results you desire from the gym many insurance companies will not cover the cost.
Talk to the doctor about the alternatives to the surgery and allow them to guide you into the best decision. The doctor will need to know your medical history and other important things about your health and family medical history before they can recommend the procedure.
Before the implant surgery is performed the surgeon will have a consultation with you to determine what size implant they should use. The surgeon will show you the possible size options according to your body mass, and health conditions. Then they will show you simulated pictures of what changes the different implant sizes would make in your physical appearance.
Together with your surgeon you will choose the size implant you think will help you meet your expectations.
If you smoke the surgeon is going to tell you it is best if you abstain for 14 days prior to the surgery. Alcohol consumption should also be stopped for the 14 days prior to the surgery and cannot be resumed without the surgeons blessing.
If you take a daily aspirin or blood thinning medication you will cease to take that medication two weeks prior to the surgery.
Have someone who can help you after the surgery for the first two weeks.
