If you’ve decided that this is the year you’re finally going to schedule your breast augmentation surgery, the first thing you’ll need to do is find a surgeon.
There is certainly no shortage of surgeons but how do you make sure that you’re choosing the best person for your procedure? These tips will help.
4 Key Steps to Choosing the Right Surgeon
Put Your Research Skills to Good Use
Finding a surgeon in your area is easy, now you need to find out whether they have the right qualifications and experience to successfully perform your breast augmentation surgery. A reputable boob job clinic in Sydney will always include a detailed biography on each of their surgeons on their website. These bios generally cover the surgeon’s education and training, qualifications and certifications, employment history and approach to patient care. Your surgeon should always be a Fellow of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS) and specialist in body-related surgeries such as breast augmentation.
Take Your Research One Step Further
Once you’ve established that your surgeon has the necessary qualifications and experience, take a look around the web to find out what past patients have to say about their experience and results. You’ll also want to take the time to look through some before and after photos.
Schedule Your Consultation
A thorough consultation is a must before scheduling any surgical procedure. Make sure that you will be meeting with your surgeon during your consultation and not a sales rep. By meeting with a surgeon during your consultation, you will get the chance to ask questions and to decide if you feel comfortable with them.
Prepare Some Questions Before Your Consultation
A reputable surgeon will never rush you into making a decision and will be more than happy to answer any questions that you might have about your surgery. Here are some examples of questions you can ask during your consultation:
- What anaesthetic will be used and who will be administering it?
- How long do you think the procedure will take?
- Will you be performing my surgery on the day?
- What will my recovery look like?
- Are there any risks and side effects that I should be aware of?
- How often do patients experience complications and what is done in the event of a complication?
- Will my aftercare be included in the cost of my surgery?
- Who will I be meeting with during my recovery?
The questions that you ask during your consultation should tell you everything you need to know to comfortably navigate the breast augmentation process from start to finish. You also want to make sure that you will have access to the care and advice you need after your surgery.
Your surgeon should be able to answer all of your questions, so if any questions are brushed over, it might be time to schedule a consultation at a different clinic.
