The informed woman knows that she will need breast revision surgery, following her original breast augmentation, at least once in her life and maybe more. When the time comes, many women wonder if they should see their same surgeon or seek out a new one.
If you were happy with your original surgeon and the outcome of your surgery, there is no reason to change surgeons unless you have moved, or your surgeon has retired. If you need to find a new surgeon, there are several factors to consider.
Probably the most important qualification you want to look for is that your surgeon is a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and one that specializes in breast surgery. Doing a web search can provide you with an abundance of information, in fact so much it may be daunting trying to weed through it all!
Board Certified in Plastic Surgery
Miguel Delgado, M.D. suggests that you choose several surgeons in your area that are Board Certified. Before you even view their website; you might want to bring up reviews that have been posted by previous patients. There are several sites that patients can go to that give ratings from actual patients, some reviews are good, some not so much.
Some of the more popular ratings sites that you can check out are:
Read the Reviews!
Some of the sites have different categories to give you an indication on how the doctor and the staff rated. An example of the ratings would be; friendliness of the staff, ease of scheduling an appointment, how long did you have to wait to see the doctor? Did the doctor make you feel rushed? Were all your questions answered? Were you happy with your surgical results? These are all important questions and are valuable information to have before making a decision in choosing a new surgeon.
Don’t be too critical, no one is perfect, one or two bad reviews are not unusual. Some people are impossible to please, look for the majority of the reviews to be good.Once you have found two or three surgeons that have good ratings, go to their website and view before and after pictures to get an idea of the results you can expect.
