What to Look for in a Breast Augmentation Surgeon

Posted on February 10, 2017

There are a few reasons why women may opt for breast augmentation, mainly achieving fuller breasts with a more pleasing shape, correcting asymmetry and an overall physique you are more comfortable with. As with any type of plastic surgery, it’s essential to choose a reputable plastic surgeon, who you can trust to carry out the procedure safely and keep your health and general safety in mind, but how can you make an informed decision?

Only Work with a Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon

A plastic surgeon who’s a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons must be board-certified by either the American Board of Plastic Surgery or The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons in Canada. 

Having board certification means you can be sure that the plastic surgeon has fulfilled strict qualification requirements and is committed to maintaining excellent standards.

Check Previous, Similar Procedures

As there is no one best plastic surgeon for breast augmentation, but rather one who is best for you, a tip on how to pick your plastic surgeon is looking at the results of breast augmentation procedures they’ve previously done. View before and after photos and choose a plastic surgeon whose results match what you want to achieve.

Have Questions Ready for Your Consultation

A good plastic surgeon will be able and willing to answer any questions you may have during your initial consultation. These may include the choice between silicone and saline implants, the placement of your breast implants and what you can expect during recovery. As well as professional qualifications and an eye for aesthetic excellence, it’s important to work with a board-certified plastic surgeon who will listen to you and address any concerns.
