Dreaming of bigger breasts? It all begins with a competent doctor. Before you rush to the operating room, here’s what you should learn:
Credentials – Check your surgeon’s credentials, including his or her medical license and organizational certificates. Inquire about board certification and be certain your doctor is a fellow of an accredited association.
Professional Experience – Don’t be shy to ask revealing questions about the surgeon’s educational background. Know his or her professional background and experience with breast augmentation. How many operations has that person made? How often does that person do them? The more a surgeon knows about breast augmentation, the better the chances that your operation will run smoothly.
Client Photos – Inquire about before and after pictures of recent patients. While every patient’s condition is different, before and after pics can tell you about the surgeon’s abilities.
Referrals – A referral is another way to find a competent cosmetic surgeon. You can inquire from friends or co-workers about their experiences. One thing you should remember – while many plastic surgeons can do many different kinds of surgeries, not all are good in breast augmentation. It’s a good idea to limit your choices to doctors who are experts in that field.
Surgery Location – Determine where the surgeon will perform breast augmentation. Will it be done at a local hospital? Is the hospital or surgical center accredited?
The Surgeon – If everything about the surgeon looks great but you just don’t feel comfortable, listen to your instinct. Breast augmentation is a delicate procedure and you should feel completely at ease with your doctor’s abilities. Ideally, you should evaluate these things before making a decision. Take time to visit and consult as many surgeons as possible to find the perfect one for you.
