Be Wary of Doctors Who Claim That They’re Plastic Surgeons

Evaluating a surgeon’s credentials is incredibly important (if not the most important!) when deciding to get breast implants.

Be wary of doctors who call themselves "cosmetic surgeons." They are usually doctors who were originally trained in specialties such as general surgery, gynecology, emergency room medicine, family practice, and even general practice. They may have "learned" to perform breast augmentation during a weekend course. They sometimes join special groups with fancy names such as the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery to give the impression of being qualified. They often offer procedures at a price that is well below average, which may be a clue to their subpar credentials.

Just as you shouldn't want a plastic surgeon delivering your baby, you shouldn't want a general surgeon or ER doctor performing your breast augmentation.

Allowing anyone other than a board certified plastic surgeon perform a cosmetic procedure increases the risk of unhealthy and unsatisfactory results.

Plastic surgeons are the only surgeons who are qualified to perform breast augmentation surgery. To become a board certified plastic surgeon, a surgeon must successfully complete several years of training specifically in plastic surgery, pass a rigorous series of plastic surgery exams, successfully perform hundreds of plastic surgery procedures, and adhere to a high standard of professional ethics. You can find out if your surgeon is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons here.
