Once you’ve done the legwork of researching the best board-certified plastic surgeons in your area, you might be left asking yourself, “Now what?” If you have a few top picks selected but aren’t quite sure how to narrow your search and truly choose the best male or female plastic surgeon for your breast surgery, consider these three top tips.
Look at the Right before and after Photos
When looking at before and after breast augmentation photos online, it’s crucial that you are looking at the right ones. Firstly, try to find photos of women who have a similar build and body shape to yours to help you get a more accurate idea of what your results could look like.
Secondly, there are a few red flags to watch out for when looking at before and after photos online:
- Very old dates and no recent photos
- Different lighting in sets of before and after pictures
- Photos that appear to have been digitally altered
Understand the Plastic Surgeon’s Preferred Techniques
Every plastic surgeon is going to have different preferences and opinions when it comes to the best surgical techniques for breast enhancement.
While this information may be outlined or highlighted on their websites, this is a great question to bring up during your consultation. Ask each plastic surgeon, “Which surgical techniques would be best for my breast enhancement and why?”
Seek an Honest, Trustworthy Opinion
You should never feel pressured into booking a procedure at your consultation.
At your consultation, look for a plastic surgeon who will give you an honest opinion, even if that means telling you something you don’t necessarily want to hear. The best plastic surgeon will offer you professional, unbiased guidance to help you keep realistic expectations for your final breast surgery results.
