Finding the right breast surgeon for your needs is the first step toward achieving the gorgeous, proportional bust you desire. In the hands of a trusted, reputable surgeon, your breast procedure can improve the way you look and feel on a daily basis; on the other hand, picking the wrong surgeon can jeopardize your results and even your safety.
Read on as Dr. Carlos Chacon shares tips to help you pick the best plastic surgeon for your breast procedure.
Limit your search to surgeons with the proper training and ample experience. Find out where your surgeon went to medical school and completed his or her training. Also, try to get an idea of how much of a surgeon’s practice is devoted to performing breast surgery; ideally, you want to find someone who performs breast enhancement on a regular basis (and not someone who, for example, focuses primarily on face procedures and only occasionally performs breast surgery).
Most of this information can usually be found on a provider’s website or determined during an in-person consultation.
Check Out Before-and-after Photographs
Looking at a sampling of a surgeon’s work will help you learn more about his or her style and approach to breast enhancement. Before-and-after patient photographs are a great place to start.
You may find yourself focusing on patients who have a similar body type as yours to get a realistic “preview” of how you may look after breast enhancement with the provider.
You should also look for a variety of excellent results on different body types. This will show you whether the surgeon can customize treatment to different patients’ needs and goals.
Read Patient Reviews
Reading patient reviews offers a peek into the experiences of a surgeon’s previous breast enhancement patients. If you want honest feedback about a surgeon’s bedside manner or approach to patient care, look for patient reviews on third-party websites such as Yelp or Healthgrades.com.
Make the Most of Your Consultation(s)
After reviewing qualifications, reading patient reviews and looking at before-and-after photographs, you should narrow your search to a short list of providers. It doesn’t hurt to schedule consultations with each one. An in-person consultation is an opportunity to discover the surgeon’s communication style, get honest, personalized feedback about your circumstances and start to develop a personal rapport.
Pay attention to the staff you encounter and the overall operation and management of the practice. A clean, modern facility staffed with knowledgeable, friendly experts bodes well for your overall experience.
