10 Questions to ask Your Surgeon When Consulting for Breast Augmentation Surgery

Consultations are considered one of the most crucial moments in your plastic surgery journey, and knowing what to ask will set you up for success throughout your experience.

Here are 10 questions you should make sure to ask your plastic surgeon during your consultation to ensure you have the basic knowledge of how to prepare and what to expect, resulting in the best outcome possible.

1: Are you board certified in plastic surgery?

Being board certified means that your surgeon not only has their doctors degree, but they also have completed an extensive educational journey focused specifically on plastic surgery, which is needed to obtain a board certification in plastic surgery. This means that they have spent additional years learning and training in cosmetic surgery specifically, making them more knowledgable and making you safer.

2: Do you specialize in breast surgery?

Each area is extremely unique and requires individual knowledge for success in every part. Asking to see before and after pictures, researching other clients experiences through reviews and asking the surgeon questions about their knowledge in breast surgery will help you understand if they are the right fit for what you. 

3: Am I a good candidate for this procedure?

Sometimes there are contraindications that may cause us not to be a good candidate for a cosmetic procedure, such as your age, medical history, current health and other factors. This information will allow you to make the best, safest decision possible for your next steps in your plastic surgery journey. 

4: What breast augmentation options do I have?

Breast augmentation may vary greatly depending on what you’re having done. Whether or not you’re getting implants, will it involve a breast lift, and other specifications will greatly affect the outcome of your procedure. Make sure you are knowledgable and aware of what your options are so that you can make a decision that will lead to what you truly want, therefore giving you the results you desire.

5: What are the risks to a breast augmentation procedure?

Understanding the risks to your procedure will help you make the best decision for yourself. You will be able to mentally and physically prepare in the best way possible to avoid any complications that could be under your control. Make sure to review these risks associated to your specific case with your surgeon.
