What to Look for in a Breast Augmentation Surgeon?

So, you’ve decided that you’re ready for breast surgery. It’s an important decision that takes a good deal of consideration. A breast augmentationcan have life-changing effects but, deciding you’re ready is just the first step in the process. Now, it’s time to think about size, shape, pre and post-surgical instructions, and of course, who you’d like to perform your augmentation.

The number one thing you should look for in a cosmetic surgeon is their credentials. A board-certified surgeon with the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) ensures that your surgeon has met rigorous training requirements, ethical standards, and has the skill needed to provide you with an optimal outcome.

You also want your surgery to be performed by someone who has extensive knowledge and expertise in your exact procedure. Ask to see breast augmentation before and after photos. Carefully scan them to determine if you’d be happy with similar results. Does your surgeon have success stories for the size and type of implant you want?

Your surgeon should also be someone you feel comfortable with. If you’re unable to be open and honest about your concerns, you may want to seek out another doctor.
