If you’ve decided to undergo a breast augmentation procedure – congratulations! This procedure is still one of the most popular surgical choices in the United States, with an estimated 4 percent of women in the United States having breast implants (that’s well over a few million!).
When undergoing a procedure such as breast augmentation you want to look for the best plastic surgeon with the most experience and credentials. If you’re not sure what to look for in a plastic surgeon, you’re in luck – we’ve compiled the must-know tips for finding the best breast augmentation surgeon:
- Look for Board Certification: This should be a non-negotiable part of your search. Plastic surgeons who are vetted by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons display serious credentials in terms of education, patient safety, and experience. Don’t work with a plastic surgeon who doesn’t have this certification, no matter how cheap the procedure might be.
- Ask for a Portfolio: When you’re in the consultation with a potential plastic surgeon, ask for a portfolio of their past breast augmentation procedures. The best plastic surgeons will specialize in this procedure, so their portfolio will give you a good idea of what you can expect. If the plastic surgeon shows you a portfolio filled with other procedures, he or she might not be as experienced with breast augmentations.
- Pay Attention to Chemistry: Work with a plastic surgeon who makes you feel comfortable. No matter how experienced a plastic surgeon might be, he or she isn’t worth it if you don’t feel a connection. Your plastic surgeon should make you feel comfortable, answer all your questions, and provide you with the best information so you know what to expect for your procedure.
Choosing the best breast augmentation surgeon doesn’t always come down to selecting someone who offers the best deal or the most popular surgeon in your hometown. Make sure you select a surgeon who meets all the above qualifications while making you feel excited about your upcoming procedure.
