Questions to Ask Your Breast Augmentation Plastic Surgeon

Questions to Ask Your Breast Augmentation Plastic SurgeonBreast enhancement can create a strong positive effect on the personality and self-confidence of a woman. 

However, the key to an effective breast augmentation plastic surgery procedure is choosing an appropriate cosmetic surgeon and determining the right breast implant type and surgical plan to suit the patient’s specific requirements. 

At the time of the initial consultation, the patient should freely ask questions and clarify all her doubts and concerns. Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Matthias Solomon provides breast implant surgery to patients in Dallas, Frisco, Sherman, Texas, and surrounding communities. 

Questions About the Surgeon’s Professional Background

Do you have board certification in plastic surgery?

When a patient chooses a board-certified plastic surgeon for her breast augmentation procedure, she is guaranteed that the surgeon has extensive experience and proven specialization in the field. A surgeon needs to clear a highly stringent set of criteria to achieve this certification. 

How many years of training and experience do you have in the area of plastics surgery?

The plastic surgeon should possess appropriate training and experience in performing various cosmetic surgeries, including breast-related procedures, such as breast augmentation with implants.

Do you have staff privileges at a local hospital or surgery center?

Staff privileges or operating privileges at a hospital or surgery center means that the surgeon has permission to use those facilities to undertake surgical procedures. These privileges render the procedure safer for the patient.

What is your success rate in breast enhancement surgery?

Breast augmentation is a relatively low-risk cosmetic surgery, but there may still be occasional complications. The surgeon should be able to provide the patient with a clear picture of the possible risks and complications to allow her to make a well-considered decision.

What are the approximate costs of breast enhancement surgery?

Breast augmentation is typically performed as an elective procedure, which means that the patient will have to bear the costs of the procedure by themselves. This makes it essential for her to be clear on all expenses pertaining to the surgery.

Questions About the Surgical Procedure

Should I choose silicone or saline breast implants?

Choosing an appropriate implant type is a vital decision. The patient will definitely have an input in this decision, but she should judiciously evaluate the recommendations of the surgeon and the reasons behind it.

What size and shape of breast implants would be appropriate for me?

The size, shape, and texture of the breast implant should be individualized for each patient. The cosmetics surgeon will assess the patient’s natural breast size, personal aesthetic goals, and the thickness of the breast skin before making a recommendation on this aspect.

Which surgical technique would be suitable for my procedure?

In order to perform breast enlargement surgery, the surgeon can place incisions underneath the breast crease, around the areolas, and in the underarm area. The placement of implants can also be done underneath or above the pectoral muscle. The surgeon will make these decisions in close discussion with the patient. 

What is the recovery period after breast enhancement surgery?

The recovery phase is an important element of a significant surgical procedure, such as breast enhancement. The patient should be clear on how much downtime the procedure involves, as well as what precautions she will need to take to heal effectively from the surgery.
