Choosing Your Breast Augmentation Surgeon

Choosing your New York plastic surgeon wisely is important. This is particularly true for breast augmentation to avoid the risk of unnecessary re-operation and poor surgical outcomes.

For breast augmentation, the proper selection of breast implants with the aid of the right breast surgeon using the 5-point system will help avoid troubles, including:

• An inappropriate breast implant size that may make your breasts look like a sock or basketball with rippling skin or may result in other deformities.

• If implant sizers are used during surgery, you may be subject to unnecessary drugs, prolonged operation, increased tissue trauma and bacterial contamination. All of which increases risks for infection and capsular contracture.

Your breast dimensions and stretch characteristics must be measured through the objective, scientific processes used by highly skilled breast surgeons prior to surgery. Breast implant placement is another consideration. Select New York plastic surgeons have refined their techniques and have a preference for incision location to enhance safety, reduce re-operation or more complex surgery risks, and optimize outcomes.  In fact, there may be a less invasive technique that you qualify for with the right breast surgeon.

The following tips are wise to employ when selecting your New York plastic surgeon.

• Ensure that the plastic surgeon is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

• Find out how many times your plastic surgeon has performed breast augmentation using the specific implants, technology, and incision location that is being proposed.

Highly accomplished New York plastic surgeons also tend to provide the benefits of using the latest technology to assist in surgery. Advanced smaller instruments with better lighting allow for greater precision and less trauma to the treatment area. Add to this, quicker and longer acting anesthetics, breast augmentation may be less risky and less discomforting at select plastic surgeons’ practices.
