Winning Tactics for Choosing the Right Surgeon for Your Breast Surgery

By Karen Beaumont

By the time you finish reading this you will understand the key points to consider when chosing the right surgeon to perform your breast surgery.

I don't know a thing about you, but I'll bet that now you have decided that you really want breast surgery, you are scared to death about things going wrong, and know that you are putting your valuable assets into the hands of one person.

What you need to do NOW, is ensure that person is right for your needs, and I am about to show you how to do that.

1. Good Communication is Key

Communication is a necessary key to having a good doctor-patient relationship. If you cannot communicate what it is that you desire, how can you expect your surgeon to know what it is that you want or what your expectations are?

Be sure that they are open to your desires and wishes as well as what they may believe is realistic. This is your body, and you are the paying client, you essentially interview the surgeon for a job, although this is more important as this is your health and well being.

Communication is also a very important aspect of any surgery. Please don't be afraid to speak up. Besides, your surgeon needs your input. Go into a surgeon's office with an idea of what it is you want. Explain these desires to your surgeon then listen to what they have to say about what they think can be realistically achieved.

2. Board Certification & What It Means

One thing you may have heard is to choose only a "Board Certified Plastic Surgeon." This can be confusing as there are many boards to be certified by. Unfortunately, there are doctors who advertise themselves as being 'board certified' on their website but do not say in what. Some may be misleading and may very well have a certification in pathology, or urology, hardly beneficial in cosmetic plastic surgery.

Get to know what to look for, what credentials your surgeon has and verify them.

Also, you must understand while board certification can be important, it is not the end all, be all of cosmetic plastic surgery. An artistic eye, good communication skills and surgical expertise are all equally important for a satisfactory outcome.

3. Ask Around

If you have a friend or relative who works in the medical field, and if you feel comfortable discussing the matter, ask them who is the best scalpel in town. Ask your general practitioner, or ask your gynaecologist. They usually know of a good surgeon that you may want to check out, or maybe who to avoid. Even ask around your gym or salon if you feel comfortable enough, people talk to their hair stylists about everything and many gush about their surgeons.

Appearing on TV or in magazines does not mean that a surgeon is a great one. Use this media for information, but do not let them make your decision for you.

4. Know that They Can Cope With Any Problems

A good surgeon can not only do a good job when everything is going well, but can cope with any problems that sometimes arise.

It is no good having a surgeon who can only cope when things are going to plan. Understand their problem coping strategy too!

5. Research Your Surgeon

Now that you have a list of candidates to perform your surgery, you must now research their credentials, and malpractice history.

Not all information is made available to the public, so relying on word of mouth of real patients can be invaluable. This may be a lot of information to absorb but it is very important, your life and physical well-being may depend upon it.

The Internet is now full of plastic surgery information sites designed simply to get your business and not educate or support you during this very important journey; where do you start??

A good place is to follow one of the following links to check a large Surgeon Referral Database.

Also, this site has a message board and support forum (, which is another way to understand if anyone has prior experience with the surgeon(s) you are considering using.

This is a difficult and time-consuming process, but you may find that a forum such as this helpful.

6. In Conclusion......

Instant rapport and open communication is vital. They must make you feel important, and an "equal". Any questions you have must be treated with respect, and no matter how silly it sounds to you, they are all valid. All your questions must be answered to your satisfaction.

Now that you know this, you are as well equipped as you can possibly be to chose the right plastic surgeon to suit YOU!
