Tips for Choosing a Surgeon for Breast Augmentation


Tips for Choosing a Surgeon for Breast Augmentation

Whether you have chosen a breast reduction, breastimplantation, or any breast augmentation procedure for that matter, you still have to decide the surgeon who will be in charge of the procedure. Despite being a relatively simple surgery, the last thing you want is inferior results, hence the reason why the choice of a surgeon is a powerful determinant to the success of the procedure.  You will not only minimize the risks if you choose a competent surgeon but also guarantee that your augmented breasts look as good as you imagined they would. You want someone you can count on during the entire process. The following tips will help you with the choice of doctor for your breast augmentation.

Review credentials

Most plastic surgeons have to possess a board certification to practice plastic or cosmetic surgery. Basically, they have to undergo rigorous training, testing, and certification process to be allowed to practice. That said, this is one of the things to look for when choosing a breast augmentation surgery. For example, plastic surgeons have to be certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) or, alternatively, The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada. If you have a prospective surgeon in mind, you can check whether they are certified by either body or have advanced their education since certification. Cosmetic surgeons have an alternative board of certification with which you can verify the credentials.

Enquire about the experience

An experienced doctor is familiar with the various situations that may arise, whether good or bad. Finding out whether the surgeon has a history of conducting similar breast augmentations will give you peace of mind going in. With a surgeon who works on such cases regularly, you are guaranteed that they understand the latest and the best methods for performing breast implants, breast reduction, and other critical cosmetic breast procedures.

Complete your due diligence about the facility

Surgeries can only be performed in accredited facilities. If your breast enhancement is being paid for by the insurance, this is a critical step because going for an unaccredited facility may mean that you have to settle the charges for the surgery by yourself. That said, this due diligence is not for insurance reasons alone. While some facilities may offer cheap services, it may not always reflect in the quality of services. It is therefore important that you assess each facility objectively before settling on one.

Look into reviews or complaints

The feedback other clients provide about a clinic will give you a rough idea of the quality of service and the customer experience you should expect. With the array of physician review sites available to you today, you can easily and conveniently tell the track record of a particular surgeon. This includes the success rate, failures, complaints, and professional conduct of said surgeon. To check for a doctor’s reputation, begin with the status of the surgeons’ credentials at the Federation of State Medical Boards on  www.fsmb.org before settling on them.

Likewise, you may want to consider whether the facility is licensed to conduct such operations. Other patients who have undergone similar procedures are a great source of referrals and relevant information that can help with this.  So, don’t be afraid to ask questions.

Take advantage of your appointment.

An appointment is not a commitment but an opportunity to meet the surgeons and assess them on a personal basis and see who fits your criteria for a perfect breast enhancement doctor. During the consultation, feel free to ask questions. The answers you find out during these interviews will help you understand what exactly transpires during the surgery, feel comfortable in the presence of a doctor and assess their understanding of the subject matter.

With this information, you will be able to arrive at a breast enhancement surgeon you believe will conduct the operation to the best standard achievable.
