If you have decided to have breast augmentation, knowing what to look for in a breast augmentation surgeon is a very important consideration. Choosing the right surgeon will have a huge impact on the ultimate outcome you achieve.
What should you look for in a breast augmentation surgeon
- Verify their board certification
Be certain to choose a plastic surgeon that is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). The ABPS only certifies plastic surgeons that have undergone rigorous training, and have the requisite knowledge and skill to perform plastic surgery safely and effectively in their area of specialty.
- Make sure the surgeon performs breast augmentations frequently
When it comes to plastic surgery, there is no substitute for experience, so it’s important to look for a surgeon that performs breast augmentation daily. Years of surgical experience gives surgeons wisdom to offer patients the right options for treatment, and adjust surgical techniques to get the best outcome in each situation.
- Choose a surgeon that delivers results you find appealing
It’s important to look at before and after photos of previous breast augmentation patients. Surgeons that perform breast augmentation regularly should have dozens of photos you can look at. Reviewing these will help to give you a sense of the surgeon’s aesthetic sensibility, so you can determine if this matches your aesthetic goals.
Also, make sure to choose a surgeon you are comfortable with, and listen to your gut when deciding if you should move forward with a surgeon after an initial consultation.
