Choosing the Right Plastic Surgeon
When it comes to cosmetic surgery, make sure that you choose the right plastic surgeon. A surgeon who understands your aesthetic needs and can guide you accordingly is the right person for the job.
Do a thorough research on the plastic surgeons in your area. Once you have made your choice, make sure the surgeon is affiliated with the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
Surgeons who are members of ASPS have to provide a high standard of service to their patients. They also have to meet certain requirements in order to be able to practice. ASPS surgeons are certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, and they are highly qualified professionals. They are required to complete a minimum of six years of training in surgery after medical school, and also have to go through three years of residency training in plastic surgery.
Surgeons of ASPS go through oral and written exams, and have to complete medical certification, to stay up-to-date with new technology. They also have to complete a session on patient safety every year.
Questions to Ask Your Surgeon Before the Procedure
During your consultation appointment, do not be afraid to ask any questions that you might have. Also, let the surgeon know of any concerns you may have. It is important that you feel comfortable before your augmentation procedure.
Ask your surgeon if you are a good candidate for a breast augmentation surgery, and the kind of breast implants you should opt for. Make sure you are fully aware of any risks or complications that may present themselves during and after the surgery.
If you are planning to have children, ask the surgeon whether the procedure will allow you to breastfeed. Make it a point to go through a few before and after photos of patients who have previously undergone the procedure under them. This is especially important in order to know whether the surgeon has completely understood the kind of enhancements you want.
Role of a Plastic Surgeon Post-Surgery
After you have had a successful procedure, you will be asked to visit your surgeon for follow-up appointments. The surgeon will make sure that your breasts are recovering well, without any complications.
For the first week after your surgery, you might be asked to wear a support bra, and your surgeon might tell you pay close attention to the incisions. To keep the surgical site free of infections, it is important to clean it every day and apply ointments prescribed by your surgeon.
