What to Look for in the Best Breast Augmentation Surgeon
Are you interested in undergoing breast augmentation surgery, but not sure what you need to look for in a surgeon?
We’re here to help! Check out the five things we recommend you should look for in the best breast augmentation surgeon:
5 Things to Look for in the Best Breast Augmentation Surgeon
1. Board certification in Plastic Surgery.
This is an absolute must-have! Make sure your plastic surgeon is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. This is the “Gold Standard” for surgeons specifically trained in Plastic Surgery. Earning this certification means that your plastic surgeon has gone through many years of rigorous training in all types of plastic surgery and has been tested and endorsed by his peers.
Don’t be fooled by other fancy-sounding certifications; only board certification by the American Board of Plastic Surgery is the one that’s regarded as the industry standard for plastic surgery.
2. Membership in plastic surgery societies
Membership in these societies such as the “American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery” means that the plastic surgeon has predominantly limited his practice to Aesthetic Surgery, and has been accepted by other plastic surgeons who are specialists in aesthetic surgery as being qualified.
Membership in other surgical societies such as the American Society for Plastic Surgeons and American College of Surgeons, also give testament to the training, experience, and ethics in the practice of surgery and patient care.
3. Extensive experience in performing all types of breast augmentation
Make sure your plastic surgeon has a demonstrable history of performing breast augmentation surgery. Don’t settle for their word; make sure they show you with an online portfolio or a physical portfolio during the consultation process.
4. A history of happy patients.
As with a breast augmentation portfolio, your plastic surgeon should be able to point outpatient reviews. Don’t just settle for what’s on their website; do a quick Google search and check out the reviews on third-party sites to ensure you’re getting the complete picture.
5. A good feeling.
Of course, never discount your own feelings when looking for the best breast augmentation surgeon. Credentials are an important part of the process, but if the most accomplished plastic surgeon makes you feel like you don’t matter, you shouldn’t put your body and your health in that person’s hands.
Find an experienced and accomplished plastic surgeon who makes you feel unique and like you matter – because you do!
Words cannot express what you have done for my self-esteem and confidence. You and your staff made me feel relaxed and comfortable the whole way through. I thank you all dearly, and you truly have “hands of magic!”
