1. Experience

Your plastic surgeon should be highly experienced with breast augmentation surgeries; in other words, you shouldn’t be one of the first ones he or she is performing this surgery on. To determine how experienced your plastic surgeon is with breast augmentation, ask to see a portfolio of previous patients. If the surgeon doesn’t have enough to make you feel comfortable, it’s best to find someone with a more demonstrable history of performing breast augmentation surgery with excellent results.

2. Certifications

Your breast augmentation surgeon should be board certified by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. There are a lot of other organizations out there that offer board certifications, but, quite frankly, this is the gold standard in the industry. A board certified from the ASPS shows that the plastic surgeon is highly educated, experienced, and has been heavily vetted via tests, peer reviews, and patient testimonials.

3. Empathy

No matter how experienced a plastic surgeon might be, if he or she doesn’t listen to your concerns and goals, they’re not the right person for you. Your plastic surgeon should really care about making you feel comfortable throughout the entire process, whether you’re the very first breast augmentation patient or the 1,000th. If your plastic surgeon brushes off your questions or isn’t even available to answer them, find someone who has a little more emotional space for you.

Ultimately, you want your plastic surgeon to make you feel safe in your decision to undergo breast augmentation surgery with them. Pay attention to how you feel, because that’s the biggest indicator of whether or not you should work with that plastic surgeon.

“I initially heard about Dr Bull around 2006 when a friend had an excellent outcome after breast augmentation (saline) by him. I did not consider cosmetic surgery until 2015 when I underwent abdomen and neck/jaw lipo with great result. Then 6 weeks ago, I had a mini tummy tuck with lipo, along with neck and forehead lift, and am very pleased indeed! My eyes were starting to appear hooded prior, neck was starting to show a double chin, and lower belly was bulky and loose despite regular workouts since age 15. Now my belly is tight, it’s easier to move, breathe and fit into clothes, and my face and neck area are more awake and happy appearing. Not only is Dr Bull a great surgeon, both he and his staff are friendly, accommodating, personable and professional. I highly recommend his practice.”*
