Tips on Finding the Best Plastic Surgeon for Breast Augmentation

July 1, 2014  |   Uncategorized

The decision to undergo breast augmentation can be life changing, and finding the right physician is key to a successful procedure. Performing research on the plastic surgeons in your area can go a long way towards helping you make an informed decision. Several points to consider while identifying possible plastic surgeons include the following:

  • How long has the physician been performing breast augmentation? The more skill a surgeon has in this area, the better results you are likely to receive. An experienced surgeon understands the intricacies of the surgery and is able to sculpt accordingly, resulting in the optimal outcome desired by the patient.
  • Is he or she a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS)? Surgeons who are members of the ASPS are the most qualified in their field. They have the knowledge, skills, and abilities required to achieve top results. These surgeons have undergone advanced training and conducted countless research studies, ensuring they are up-to-date on the latest technologies and methods available today.
  • What can be expected during the consultation? During a consultation, the surgeon will ask you to explain your needs and desires concerning your breast augmentation. He or she will then review your medical history and perform a breast examination. Additionally, recommendations will be provided concerning your possible procedure and your surgeon will answer any questions you may have.
  • How much time did he or she spend explaining the procedure? A surgeon who truly has your best interest in mind will take the time needed to ensure you understand the smallest details and possible complications of the procedure. They will guide you through the process in its entirety, ensuring you leave the office fully aware of what to expect.
