1. Ensure that your surgeon is a full member of the Irish Association of Plastic Surgeons, IAPS.
2. Ensure that the facility where the breast augmentation will be carried out, is a accredited clinic. Make sure that they have modern and up to date safety equipment and standards.
3. Be open with your past medical history. The more the surgeon knows about your medical history he or she will be able to identify potential risks and make informed decisions based on your information. If you, for example, are on the birth control pill, it is important for your doctor to know, because this could increase the risk for clotting.
4. Find out about the after care and ensure that there will be appropriate follow up care in the unlikely event of a complication.
