Choosing the Right Surgeon for Breast Implants

As of today, millions of women have had their breasts augmented. It is well-known that most women who have undergone it are happy with the results, though there is also a small percentage whose surgery proved to be their worst nightmare. What does this outcome depend on: sheer luck or well-suited options? Let’s make a summary before you jump onto the table.

Credentials and Reliability

The physician in charge of the surgery should be certified to conduct this type of surgery. This is a must in all cases. So should be the staff that accompanies him or her during the procedure– the nurses, the patient coordinators and the anesthesiologist. It is paramount that everyone in the operating room abides by the rules of the American Medical Association and that they are intensively trained to carry out the surgery smoothly. At the same time, when searching for the right clinic or hospital, ascertain that their website and facilities go about with a reliable and safe appearance.


If you have already decided upon having breast implants, you surely know someone at work or at the gym who had it done some time ago. Ask for her physician’s telephone number or website. Ask if she went through any kind of problem and which were the tips the doctor pointed out during the first consultation. Gather as many recommended professionals as you can and pick out the one who has proved to be the best and caused any type of trouble. It might not be easy to choose the best surgeon for breast augmentation, so allow plenty of time in advance to stick with the safest choice.

First Impression

When the day of the first appointment has come, go ready and armed with questions. See in depth how this one professional handles his practice and what he or she offers at first hand. Spot pictures with the surgeries he or she has been in charge of and, in compliance with his statements, ask when it would be most convenient to perform the breast augmentation. If the date is way too rushed, you may be facing a definite NO. If the price is way too low, you may have hit the wrong practice as well.


Where is the surgery going to take place? Is it an accredited medical facility? How many physicians work there? Make sure you get this answers just right. Many times it has happened that women suddenly suffered from a heart attack or an allergic reaction and the operating room was just not suited to handle the emergency duly. If the breast augmentation is held in a well-respected hospital, you might be in front of the right choice as these are prepared to tackle every possible inconvenient.

And remember: during this procedure you will be entirely anesthetized. Do not take any kind of drugs prior to this day and make sure your physician remains thoroughly informed about your overall health condition.
