Choosing the Right Doctor for Breast Surgery

Choosing the Right Doctor for Breast Surgery

by Yenny (SU)

With medical technology always evolving to improve patient outcomes, there are less invasive surgical procedures, shorter recovery and downtime, and reduced complication & risks within the world of plastic surgery. Women considering breast surgery for a variety of reasons now have more options to choose from than ever before, and can be more confident in the quality and outcome of their decision. The variety of procedures and techniques to choose from will help the patient have a better chance at achieving their goals and overall health, with results that look natural.

If you’re considering a change in your breast size or shape, you’re not alone. Procedures can range from a breast lift, augmentation, implants, to full reconstruction. Sometimes, the surgeon will perform an augmentation and lift simultaneously to improve appearance and function.

Choosing the right breast surgeon for any procedure can be a daunting task. However, when considering breast surgery, the choice of your surgeon is the most important decision you will make. For women, not feeling good in your own skin causes a host of problems both physical, and most importantly, psychologically. Confidence and self-esteem are important, but what’s most important is that you are happy with yourself, inside and out.

Therefore, when choosing the right breast surgeon for your procedure, know that a successful procedure will make you feel more like yourself and give you greater confidence for years to come. Ending up in the hands of an inexperienced surgeon increases your chances of having poor results, which can lead to severe deformities, scarring, additional costs, time, and heartache.

Finding a board-certified cosmetic surgeon who has plenty of experience in breast surgery is critical to getting the results you desire. They need to be certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and should be a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons 

Your consultation with your potential surgeon is the place to learn and ask all the important questions. With honest and thorough communication between you and the surgeon, combined with various cutting-edge treatment options, and a skilled breast surgeon, women do have a much better chance of achieving the results that meet their goals, but with natural-looking results. Even if you don’t want to be fully informed about the procedure and just want results, you should be comfortable with your surgeon for such an intimate procedure.

Ask the potential surgeon for pictures to show you of procedures they have done on other patients. This can help you gauge if you like what they do. Most importantly, make sure the doctor you end up choosing is compassionate, understanding, and makes you feel comfortable. You need to feel 100 percent comfortable with the surgeon and their staff. Choose the doctor not based on what they say, but through their actions and experience, as well as the fact that you trust them completely with your safety.
