Can Choosing a Cosmetic Breast Specialist Improve My Augmentation Results?

Breast augmentation is near the top of the list when it comes to the most popular plastic surgery procedures performed and for many great reasons. It is also associated with a high patient satisfaction rate.

Unfortunately, some cosmetic surgeons who offer a very large array of plastic surgery procedures do not give this procedure the depth of attention that it needs and deserves. There are several reasons for this.

A lack of expertise, knowledge, judgment and misunderstanding or non-intentional disregard of what a patient is seeking can compromise the ultimate breast augmentation results. Such less-than-ideal or less-than-desired results can also lead to unhappy or somewhat dissatisfied patients who then may then seek out breast revision surgery.

A reputable board certified plastic surgeon specializing in breast surgery may be more likely to obtain the results that you are seeking.

Unfortunately, this surgery (especially breast augmentation) is also done by non-plastic surgeons such as some dermatologists, general surgeons, obstetricians, ENT doctors, anesthesiologists and even dentists. Commonly, whether directly or indirectly, they present themselves, their training and skills in a misleading way that can ultimately be to your detriment.

Why Choose a Cosmetic Breast Surgery Specialist?

Undergoing breast augmentation is a significant decision that may even be part of a transformative journey of improving your self-image and increasing your confidence.

If you are contemplating pursuing this cosmetic procedure, you should know that it involves meticulous planning and careful consideration. Unfortunately, some surgeons performing this treat it more like a commodity, not giving it the attention or seriousness that it deserves. This is not in your best interest.

Expertise in Breast Anatomy and Aesthetics

Cosmetic breast surgery specialists may possess a deeper understanding of breast anatomy and aesthetic principles while employing advanced techniques to minimize scarring and complications for optimal results. Much of this may also come from extensive experience. Some of these issues regarding breast augmentation include:

Specialists Have In-Depth Knowledge of Breast Implants

Plastic surgeons who are breast surgery specialists are typically well-versed in the diverse array of breast implants, providing their patients with greater and more customized options and informed choices aligned with their unique goals. This relates specifically to expertise in implant sizing, selection of the appropriate implant profile based on anatomy and goals, implant pocket location and the incision employed in implant insertion.

Realize, of course, that there can never be 100% guarantees of results.

Personalized Breast Augmentation Surgery Planning

Each patient is unique, and a cosmetic breast surgery specialist should customize their surgical plans to meet your individual goals and expectations with the flexibility of numerous options as noted above. This also allows for addressing issues such as breast asymmetry and ptosis (drooping).

Breast Augmentation Postoperative Care and Follow-Up

The postoperative period is also important as it can most definitely affect your final results. This fact should not be discounted – by you or your surgeon. A breast surgery specialist understands this.

Appropriate follow-ups with attention to detail, healing and other issues are definitely important. As a patient, you should fully comply with your plastic surgeon’s recommendations and instructions so as to maximize the probability of you obtaining the outcome desired while minimizing the risk of untoward issues.
