There will also be a medical examination, which may include a breast examination and a discussion about the potential risks associated with the surgery.

Dr. Hermann was educated in the most advanced techniques for cosmetic and reconstructive breast surgeries under renowned practitioners. He can help you understand exactly what to expect throughout every stage of your care.
How to Prepare
In the days and weeks prior to your breast surgery consultation, begin jotting down questions you have about the surgery. Bring your notes to Dr. Hermann’s office on the day of your meeting. You may also want to bring photographs or magazine cutouts of bust lines you like so you can explain more specific goals for your treatment.
If you are unsure of which questions to ask, consider:
- Where will my surgery be performed?
- How long will my recovery last?
- How can I prepare for my recovery?
- How will any surgery complications be handled?
- How will my implants look after several years?
- Will my implants ever need to be replaced?
- What options do I have if I am dissatisfied with the outcome of my implant surgery?
You should also ask to see before and after pictures of previous breast augmentation patients.
What You Will Discuss with Your Surgeon
Dr. Hermann will cover a wide range of topics during your consultation. There’s no need to worry about being rushed. You will be given as much time as needed to ask and answer questions. In the next portion of the visit, Dr. Hermann will assess the shape and size of your bust. He will take notes on the position of your nipples and other relevant features of your breasts. This information will be used to determine the proper implant type, projection, and size for your body.
Dr. Hermann has trained under renowned breast surgeons, and can help you understand exactly what to expect throughout treatment.
Dr. Hermann will also discuss your medical history and motivation for undergoing surgery. Certain medications and health conditions can pose risk factors for surgery. Under no circumstances should you keep any information from your surgeon. The consultation is also a chance for you to develop a rapport with your surgeon.

The final step of your consultation at our practice involves planning your treatment. This detailed roadmap includes information on the specific implants you chose, the final course of treatment, and the time and place of the actual surgery. Your input, along with the results of your examination, will help Dr. Hermann determine which type of implant to use.
