Breast augmentation can make a real difference in your life, but the results you achieve will depend greatly on the skill of your plastic surgeon. So what should you do to help you choose the right plastic surgeon for your breast augmentation?
What Is a Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation is a cosmetic surgery procedure that uses breast implants to change the size and shape of your breasts. Women choose breast augmentation for many different reasons, but the number one goal is to help you feel more confident about your body.
There are many different choices you will need to make along the way. Will you get saline or silicone implants? How big will the implants be? How will you pay for the surgery? (Breast augmentation is not covered by insurance.) But the most important decision you will make will be choosing the right plastic surgeon to do the procedure.
Why Is Research Important?
Before you get a breast augmentation, it’s important to do your homework. When it comes to plastic surgeons, there are big differences, including prices and skill levels.
Start by researching plastic surgeons online. There are websites that let patients rate a doctor’s skill, price and service.
Make your top selections and then book a consultation with these doctors to meet them face-to-face. Ask your doctor how much experience he or she has with breast augmentations. Ask to see before and after pictures from previous patients. Check out the doctor’s credentials. Tell the doctor about your goals for breast augmentation and ask for a quote. Make sure the doctor takes the time to answer all of your questions, and make sure that the doctor and staff make you feel comfortable.
If you don’t do your homework, the results of your breast augmentation may not come out the way you had hoped. You want to get the best possible results without overpaying and you want to get the best plastic surgeon for the job.
