Getting the Most out of Your Breast Enhancement Consultation

During your initial breast augmentation consultation, Dr. Loftus will examine your breasts and take careful measurements which will guide them in advising you about your breast augmentation options. She will make special note of nipple position, breast volume, breast width, distance between your breasts, breast shape and projection, and height of the fold beneath each breast. She will point out asymmetries (no two breasts are symmetric), and explain which of your breast features they can improve and how.
