Women who are considering a breast augmentation surgery should seek out as much breast augmentation information as possible before making their decisions. Fortunately for these women, there is a wealth of this type of information at their disposal. The Internet, newspapers, magazines, books and consultations with doctors are all ways a potential patient can obtain accurate and useful breast augmentation information. In general, newspapers, magazines, books and doctor consultations are considered valid methods for obtaining information about breast augmentation procedures. Patients may still find some conflicting information in these resources but the vast majority of the information will be reliable.
The Internet can also be a reliable resource for obtaining breast augmentation information but patients should exercise caution when using the Internet for research. Web sites such as the Food and Drug Administration and other government agencies can provide a great deal of up-to-date and accurate information. Personal Web sites can also provide a great deal of breast augmentation information, but may also include misinformation. However, patients using the Internet for research should plan on verifying the information from another resource to ensure the information is not false or outdated.
