It's not buying a dress

Deciding whether to have a breast augmentation is a very serious issue – not like buying a dress, or jewelry, or even a car! You're making choices and decisions that will change your body for the rest of your life! Unfortunately, some patients make decisions about breast augmentations based on very little information. We want to change that, and give every woman considering augmentation more information-more tools to make better decisions-that give every woman the best chance for THE BEST BREAST.
There's a good chance you'll get what you deserve!
If we can provide you with information to add to your knowledge base, you'll have more tools to make better decisions. But part of the work is up to you-the more you're willing to do your homework, the better chance you'll get THE BEST BREAST!
GET IT RIGHT THE FIRST TIME!!! YOUR BEST CHANCE FOR THE BEST BREAST IS AT THE FIRST OPERATION.
Whatever is required, do your homework, ask questions, and commit the time and effort required to make the right decisions the first time around. The better the decisions you make, the less likely you'll need additional operations in the future. Remember: Any time another operation is necessary, the risks are higher, the results are less predictable, and the costs are higher!
If you're not willing to commit the time and effort to gain the knowledge to make good decisions, don't have an augmentation. If you don't thoroughly understand your choices and the inevitable tradeoffs of any choice-if you aren't informed and accept the limitations and risks-don't have an augmentation. Lack of knowledge can lead to bad choices and bad team decisions (you and your surgeon) that are not good for you and reflect negatively on augmentation as an option for other women.
It's a joint effort! Patients, surgeons, and implant manufacturers must make every effort to give you the best breast-the first time-and minimize the necessity for reoperations as much as possible. Do your part, and we'll do all we can to help!
