How to Choose a Breast Augmentation Surgeon
When choosing a surgeon to perform your breast augmentation, there are a variety of factors to consider, such as experience, certifications, bedside manner, and patient testimonials. During your consultation, we also recommend reviewing before and after photos to assess the quality of results the surgeon can provide. Dr. Stephen T. Greenberg in Long Island, NY, explains how to choose a breast augmentation surgeon, which is the single most important measure a patient can take toward ensuring the success of their surgery.
Is Your Surgeon Board-Certified?
Board certification means that a surgeon has taken part in years of training after medical school and passed a stringent exam by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Because breast augmentation is not covered by insurance, you are unable to depend on the thorough checkpoint process typically conducted by insurance companies. Board certification does not guarantee satisfying results, but it is a strong indication that your surgeon has the training and experience to help you achieve your goals.
How Often Does the Surgeon Perform Breast Augmentation?
When meeting with your surgeon, ask how often he or she performs breast augmentation. The more frequently the surgeon performs the procedure, the more likely he or she is to have the skill necessary to provide outstanding results with minimal scarring.
Do You Connect With Your Surgeon?
Another very important aspect in choosing a surgeon is whether you feel comfortable speaking with him or her. Always ask yourself:
- Do I get the impression that this surgeon is genuinely compassionate?
- Does this surgeon understand why I am choosing to undergo plastic surgery?
- Do I feel comfortable asking questions?
- Does this surgeon listen and have a patient demeanor?
If at any point you feel rushed, ignored, or uncomfortable, that is a good sign that you should keep looking.
Board certification does not guarantee satisfying results, but it is a strong indication that your surgeon has the training and experience to help you achieve your goals.
