In some ways, choosing a breast augmentation surgeon is similar to hiring other creative professionals, such as an interior decorator or wedding photographer. Once you have determined that they have the proper training and experience, you should take some time and view examples of their past work. Each surgeon has their own idea of beauty, and it is important that you choose a surgeon whose style aligns with your personal beauty goals.
In this blog post, San Diego plastic surgeon Dr. Carlos Chacon explains what you should look out for in breast augmentation before-and-after photos.
Body Types that Match Yours
While every breast augmentation patient’s results are unique, viewing before-and-after images of patients with a similar body type to yours can help you understand what results you can reasonably expect from the procedure. These images can also help you visualize what certain breast implant sizes, shapes and placement techniques will look like on your body type.
An experienced and skilled plastic surgeon operates with the goal of helping their patient look and feel like the most beautiful and confident version of themselves. For this reason, it is important to look for a surgeon whose results are both beautiful and natural-looking. When viewing “after” photos, look for noticeable yet natural-looking improvements in patients’ breast and body proportions.
Scarring is an inevitable part of surgery, but a truly skilled plastic surgeon knows how to minimize their appearance. Most breast augmentation incisions are placed in places where they can be concealed by natural skin creases and clothing. But beyond that, it is important that you work with a surgeon who is knowledgeable and skilled in superior incision techniques that minimize trauma to the skin and tissues for quick healing and minimal scar appearance.
Once you have found a plastic surgeon whose before-and-after images align with the results you hope to achieve, it’s time to schedule a personal consultation. Meeting with a surgeon personally allows you to get a feel on other important qualities like their communication style with patients.
