The right surgeon for your breast surgery

Before your breast surgery, you are faced with many choices. The most important is choosing a qualified, experienced surgeon whom you trust. Your personal feeling is a valuable indicator - you should be comfortable with your decision. Here are some tips to make your search easier.

The search for a surgeon

Finding the perfect surgeon for your needs may seem overwhelming. But with a targeted search you can make the right choice. Surgeons' associations are a good starting point for searching. Friends and acquaintances often have a recommendation, patient review sites provide additional information from other patients. Inquire and share your experiences with others.

Before you make an appointment with a surgeon, review their website to gather information. You do not have to decide immediately. It is not uncommon to meet with different plastic surgeons and then choose without haste. In addition to qualifications and experience, aesthetic approach also plays an essential role. 

Consultation prior to breast surgery

Medical consultation is the ideal opportunity for both sides to get to know each other.

Good plastic surgeons will always explain as much as possible, convey realistic expectations, and help you form your own well-founded opinion. Nevertheless, every woman's body is unique, and not all measures are suitable for all patients. Your surgeon should always consider your individual needs, health conditions and medical history, and decide what works best for you. This may mean rejecting you as a patient. 

When making your decision, consider whether the aesthetic approach of a surgeon corresponds to your personal taste. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, and everyone experiences it differently. In this area you and your surgeon should share the same views.

The closer you work with your surgeon to define realistic goals, the happier you can be with the outcome of your surgery.

Qualification and experience of your surgeon

When it comes to finding a reliable and competent surgeon, you should pay particular attention to his/her qualifications and work experience. Please consider the following factors:

Qualifications and experience should always come first when choosing your surgeon. Not the price. Because your health is your most valuable asset. 

  • Ensure your surgeon is a member of a recognised association. At the same time, you should check the surgeon's qualifications. There are also less credible associations.
  • On average, it takes more than ten years for a surgeon to be a truly experienced surgeon. Make sure your surgeon is also experienced in the surgery you are seeking.
  • Where does your surgeon operate? He/she should only use accredited medical facilities.
  • Question the statements of your surgeon. Your surgeon should be honest with you and not promise unrealistic results.


Recognised associations for plastic surgeons

Unfortunately, there are surgeons offering cosmetic surgery without surgical qualifications. On the websites of reputable associations of aesthetic plastic surgery, you will find lists of competent plastic surgeons around the world.

Breast augmentation abroad

Considering plastic surgery abroad can be very tempting, especially during the holiday season. Bear in mind that health and safety standards are not the same everywhere. Find out which policies apply and whether your rights are protected. Make sure all costs (pre and post-surgery) are covered. 

Should you decide to undergo surgery abroad, to ensure no misunderstandings arise between you and your surgeon, choose only a surgeon who speaks your native language. Comprehensive advice and an open dialogue are crucial for a good result. 

Trips involving cosmetic surgery, such as breast augmentation, are often advertised as vacations. However, post-surgery, your body needs rest and relaxation. Typical holiday activities such as dancing, swimming, sunbathing or drinking alcohol are prohibited during that time.
