10 Tips for Choosing a Great Breast Surgeon

10 Tips for Choosing a Great Breast Surgeon

If you’re thinking of having breast surgery then the most important thing you can do is to make sure you find a great breast surgeon.
Below are 10 tips to help you choose the right surgeon.

1. Check for Board Certification

Checking that a surgeon is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery is probably the most important consideration when choosing a plastic surgeon. The reason it’s so important is because it lets you know that the surgeon has spent at least 2-3 years training in plastic surgery in addition to taking written and oral tests.

2. Check their credentials

Board certification is the most important credential to check for but you should also enquire about any credentials they have specifically relating to breast surgery.

3. Find out where they trained

This is another important thing to find out from any surgeons you are considering. Great training makes a huge difference in a field like plastic surgery.

4. View their work

This is a no-brainer. If you’re trusting a surgeon to perform breast surgery on you, then you want to see multiple examples of results they’ve achieved before.

5. Ask for recommendations

If you have any friends of family members who have had breast surgery then don’t be afraid to ask them who did their surgery.

6. Make a list of potential surgeons

You should try to narrow down a list of 2-3 potential surgeons and then schedule consultations with each so you can decide which you’d like to choose.

7. Find out if they have hospital privileges

Although you might be planning to have your surgery at an outpatient clinic, you still want to find out if your surgeon has hospital privileges since hospitals do background checks on any surgeons they allow to perform at their premises.

8. Find out if they specialize in breast surgery

It’s always preferable to find a surgeon who specialises in the type of surgery you’re planning to have.

9. Schedule a consultation

Most surgeons will enable you to book a free consultation where you’ll have the chance to have any of your questions answered. You’ll also be given more information about breast surgery, including the types of implants available and how the surgery is performed.

10. Come armed with questions

It’s always a good idea to have a list of questions prepared for any consultations you have. These questions might include things like – Am I a good candidate? Which implants are best for me? How long will I need to take off work?
