Breast augmentation cosmetic surgery is a life-altering decision in many ways. You should make this decision only after careful consideration and choose the most suitable surgeon for your needs. More than any surgical technique, technology or breast implant quality, it is the skill and experience of your surgeon that will make a difference to your final results.
With a successful breast augmentation surgery, you can expect to have improved self-confidence for years to come. But in the hands of a less trained or less experienced surgeon, you could face a poor outcome. You will either have to live with less than perfect results in this case, or consider a revision surgery, which will only add to your surgical trauma and costs.

Choose an ABPS Board Certified Plastic Surgeon
Make sure that the breast surgeon you work with has been board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). Patients often mistakenly believe that state medical board certifications are good enough, or a certification from a cosmetic surgery board is equivalent to that of an ABPS certification.
However, the reality is that ABPS is the only board that is recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties.
To attain an ABPS board certification, doctors must receive at least six years of surgical training after med school, with at least three years of exclusive plastic surgery residency training. Additionally, the surgeon must pass written and oral exams after this grueling training phase.
In addition, the surgeon must submit documentation on the cases they undertake after their training is complete. Doctors must also clear a renewal exam every ten years to remain board certified.
While a doctor who is qualified only in general surgery or other medical disciplines could also perform cosmetic surgery procedures, their safety and success rates may be less than ideal. For this reason, it is vital for you to work with an ABPS board certified plastic surgeon for your breast augmentation.
Personal Rapport and Comfort Level
You should pay attention to how comfortable the surgeon and their staff make you feel. Breast augmentation surgery is a personal journey for a patient, and she will need support and guidance at every step of the procedure.
You should preferably choose a surgeon with whom you feel completely at ease, and believe that you can develop a good rapport and a relationship of trust. You should ask these questions to yourself while considering a surgeon for your breast implant procedure:
- Am I comfortable spending time with this surgeon?
- Do I trust that the recommendations that the surgeon is making are appropriate for me?
- Is the surgeon approachable enough for me to be able to express any concerns that I may have during the surgical process?
- Do I feel at ease revealing my complete health history and lifestyle habits to this surgeon?
Addressing these concerns will give you more confidence about making your final decision about choosing a breast implant surgeon. Cosmetic surgeon Dr. Matthias Solomon receives patients from Dallas, Frisco, Sherman, Texas, and nearby areas for breast implant surgery.
