Choosing the Right Breast Surgeon

Mar 08, 2021

Whether you're getting implants, a breast lift, or a breast reduction, your surgeon should listen to your desires and suggest procedures that are best for your health and your body. If a surgeon is trying to upsell you or push you into a procedure that you aren't sure about or comfortable with, this is a red flag. Your surgeon should make you feel confident, secure, and at ease. He or she will be with you from the consultation all the way through your recovery—including follow-up visits—so be sure you're happy with the relationship you're building as you go.

Many surgeons and health institutions don't share photos of their work online, as before and after photos can be private and intimate—especially when it comes to body augmentation. It's appropriate to ask your surgeon for 'before' and 'after' photos of their work during your consultation. Many will have it ready for you to review during your visit, but be sure to ask before you commit to a surgical procedure.

Most health institutions allow patients to review and rate surgeons based on past experiences. Take the time to read reviews for surgeons you're considering Keep in mind that your experience may differ from that of another reviewer, but overall these recommendations can help steer you down the right path.
