Breast Augmentation

Your Choices For Breast Augmentation

There are many choices for patients interested in a breast augmentation. The single most important decision that a potential patient will make is choosing their surgeon. Be sure that the surgeon is board certified by the American Board of plastic surgery. Surgeons who have published papers on this procedure and have been invited nationally and internationally to speak on the topic are good indications of expertise in their field. Additionally, speaking to other patients who have already had the surgery is a good way to find out more about what to expect and to also learn about surgeons and their work. A surgeon’s published re-operation rates and a recovery rates are excellent objective indicators of the quality of the procedure delivered by that particular surgeon.

Once you have accessed the surgeons in your area, you'll want to schedule a consultation with them. By meeting the surgeon in person, you can get a better idea of how your surgery will go, the techniques they will use, the recovery process and the costs involved. While meeting with your surgeon, you will discuss the type of breast implant that would be best to achieve your desired results. There are a variety of different types of implants ranging from saline to cohesive gel. Each surgeon has their own preference as to which implants will get you the best results.
