Why Breast Augmentation Can Be Better with a Friend

Two female friends enjoying a day outside together discussing breast augmentation.

Now that you’ve scheduled your breast augmentation consultation, you might be wondering whom — if anyone — you should bring along with you.

While this decision is entirely up to you and will depend on your personal preferences, some women find that it’s helpful to bring a friend to their breast implant consult for these reasons.

You’ll Have Moral Support

It can be a bit nerve-wracking to go to a new doctor’s office by yourself, so bringing a supportive friend along can help to calm any butterflies you might have. He or she can also offer moral support during your consultation and help you decide if breast enhancement could be right for you.

While a friend’s support can be invaluable, you should never feel pressured into getting plastic surgery by anyone.

You Can Get a Second Opinion

Now comes the fun part. When choosing a breast implant size, type and other options, your friend can offer a second set of eyes to help you choose the details of your procedure.

Ultimately, these choices are entirely up to you, but it never hurts to have a friend’s listening ear when making big decisions.

Your Friend Can Get Valuable Aftercare Info

If your friend will be helping to take care of you after your breast augmentation, having him or her at your appointment can be a big help. Dr. Mariotti can discuss aftercare instructions with both of you, so you’ll have someone else to help you remember and take note of important information.

If you’re ready to schedule a consultation or have additional questions, please contact us online or call our Concord, California office at 925-232-4578.
