A- ASK your friends and family. Your friends and family members who have undergone breast augmentation can be an excellent resource when searching for a Plastic Surgeon locally that provides the level of quality service and care you are looking for. They can also help you prepare for what questions to ask your surgeon when you are ready.

B – Make sure your Plastic Surgeon is BOARD CERTIFIED. After speaking with your family and friends about their experience and recommendations, your next step is to research the surgeon’s credentials.  Plastic Surgery Board Certification is an indication that your surgeon has the proper training and is competent in performing Breast Augmentation Surgery.

C- CONFIDENCE in your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.  A consultation with your surgeon will help you get to know them and determine your comfort level with them.  Find out what their level of experience is with Breast Augmentation Surgery.  Review their Before and After patient photos.  Ask to speak with some of their prior patients who have undergone Breast Augmentation Surgery.  Find out if your Plastic Surgeon is a member of the American Society for Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) or the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).  As a member of these societies, your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon is held to a higher standard of ethics and safety when it comes to your care.

D- DON’T PROCEED UNTIL you have done all your “homework” and are confident you have found the right Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to provide your care.  As we tell all of our patients, if you are not 100% confident with the surgeon and office you choose, you may not be 100% happy with your results and follow up experience.  Price is important, but it may not be the best determining factor.
