Questions to Ask When Choosing Your Breast Surgeon

Perhaps the most important part of your breast augmentation is choosing the right surgeon for you. Although you can easily find lots of choices on the internet, you may not know what to look for in a plastic surgeon that will give you the results you want.

Some of the questions you will want to ask your breast surgeon include:

  • How many breast augmentation surgeries does he perform each year? Experience in performing breast augmentation is important for obvious reasons. If you have found a plastic surgeon on the internet, but their focus seems to be on something other than breast augmentation, or you are not comfortable with the number of breast implant procedures he or she has performed, keep looking.
  • How many years has he performed breast augmentation surgeries? You can be sure that a plastic surgeon who has several years of experience performing breast augmentation has the necessary experience. Ask to see this potential plastic surgeon’s before and after pictures so you may see the results.
  • Is your plastic surgeon board certified? Board certification means that your plastic surgeon has received proper training, passed an oral and written exam, and is completely qualified to perform your breast augmentation surgery with minimized risks.
  • Where does your breast surgeon perform breast augmentation procedures? Plastic surgeons will perform breast augmentation at either their practice or a hospital. It is important to find out where this is done so you can be sure the proper personnel will be present during your breast augmentation surgery.

These are just some of the questions you should ask when looking for a Texas plastic surgeon for your breast augmentation surgery. However, you should ask as many questions as possible.
