3 Things to Look for in a Breast Implant Revision Surgeon

462762387Breast implant revision can be one of the more complex plastic surgery procedures. This is because of the wide range of reasons that women may opt for breast implant revision, combined with the fact that your revision surgeon may not be the same surgeon who performed your initial augmentation. Because of this, your surgeon is required to adapt to your previous results in order to create your ideal outcome. Here are three things to search for in a breast implant revision surgeon to ensure an optimal experience.

1. Expertise

Most plastic surgeons offer breast implant revision, but not all of them are revision specialists. Search for a surgeon who specializes specifically in breast surgery. This means that your surgeon will be familiar with a variety of approaches to breast augmentation, breast implant issues and the best way to create beautiful results with revision surgery.

2. Board Certification

Becoming certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery is not required in order to perform cosmetic procedures. However, board certification indicates the highest caliber of dedication to creating beautiful results with plastic surgery using safe and effective techniques. Due to the complex nature of breast implant revision surgery, it’s critical that your surgeon be up to date with the latest innovations, technology and research related to breast augmentation and breast revision.

3. A Customized Approach

Any surgical procedure requires a customized approach. When it comes to breast implant revision, a personalized approach is more important than ever. Women may choose to get breast implant revision because of a malposition issue, implant failure, a size concern or capsular contracture. Ask to see real patient before-and-after photos and schedule a one-on-one consultation to help you decide whether your surgeon is the best fit for your unique concerns.
