What to Ask Your Potential Breast Lift Surgeon
Beautiful results from breast lift surgery depend on the experience and skill of a highly qualified plastic surgeon. But with so many plastic surgeons out there, how do you choose the “right” one? The truth is, there are many factors to consider when choosing a breast lift surgeon. To help you with your decision, Miami breast lift surgeon Dr. Ary Krau has compiled the following list of questions to ask before choosing a breast lift surgeon.
Are You Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery?
The answer to this question should always be yes. The American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) is the only board recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialties to govern plastic surgeons. Being board certified by ABPS means the plastic surgeon graduated from an accredited medical school and completed several years of surgical training. Additionally, the board requires surgeons to continue their education throughout the years in order to be up to date with the latest surgical advances and techniques.
Do You Specialize in Breast Lift Surgery?
Your plastic surgeon should be a specialist in whatever procedure it is you seek. A plastic surgeon who specializes in breast surgery has years of experience and has performed thousands of breast lift surgeries. If you are considering combining breast lift with implants, make sure your plastic surgeon is an expert in the combination procedure.
Do You Have Before and After Photos of Your Previous Work?
A highly qualified plastic surgeon will gladly show you examples of his or her previous procedures. Looking at before and after photos can help you get a good idea of the plastic surgeon’s skill and what results you can expect. It is also a good idea to ask to read some of the plastic surgeon’s reviews from former patients.
What Does the Procedure Entail?
Not all breast lift surgeries are the same, nor does every plastic surgeon perform the procedure the same way. Be sure to have your plastic surgeon explain the procedure in detail, including the incision pattern he/she uses and the possible risks and complications involved. If you are considering breast lift with implants, ask your surgeon about the shape, size and type of implants the plastic surgeon offers.
What Should I Expect After the Procedure?
Following your procedure, recovery and rest are key. Some plastic surgeons have recovery suites for their patients to rest as the anesthesia wears off. It is also wise to ask your plastic surgeon when you will be released from their surgical facility, in order to make arrangements for a loved one to pick you up.
In addition, make sure to choose a plastic surgeon who is personally involved with every step of your recovery, like Dr. Krau. Dr. Krau will provide a detailed list of guidelines for you to follow after your surgery and he will meet with you several times to make sure your body is healing and recovering properly.
