When you’re considering breast augmentation, it can be a fun and exciting time. However, there are many factors involved in this procedure besides just picking out the type of implant you want, or if you want to do a fat transfer method. So whether you’re getting your breast augmentation procedure done with us at Advanced Cosmetic Surgery, or you’re going elsewhere, we want you to be safe! Continue reading to find out the questions you need to be asking before getting breast augmentation done.
Is Your Surgeon Board-Certified?
As we mentioned, this is an invasive procedure that requires thoughtfulness, experience, and professionalism. You need to be sure that if you’re considering breast augmentation a trained professional who is board-certified will be handling the procedure. Your body and overall health are the priority so don’t get blinded by the excitement and go with someone lacking the necessary skill sets.
How Many Successful Breast Augmentation Procedures Has Your Surgeon Done?
It's easy for surgeons to say, “I’ve done hundreds of procedures”. But it's important to know exactly how many successful procedures they’ve done and look for reviews from prior patients. If people aren’t happy with the results, then what was the point?
Does Your Surgeon Specialize in Breast Augmentation?
This question follows suit with the prior two, but it can make a big difference between a surgeon saying, “I can do this procedure” to, “I specialize in this procedure”. Experience, experience, experience, that’s what you need to look for.
What Type and Size of Implants Do You Think Are Right for Me?
There are three main types of breast augmentation implants: saline-filled, silicone-filled, and “gummy bear” implants, which are solid silicone. If a surgeon only references one option and doesn’t explain the differences, don’t let yourself be limited.
Am I a Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation?
Transparency in this procedure is crucial. Dr. Young will never recommend any procedure to a patient if it won’t be beneficial to their health or desired goals. So make sure you go with a surgeon who will lay out all the details for you and discuss whether a breast augmentation procedure is right for you.
