Top 7 Best Breast Augmentation Surgeons in the U.S. (with Reviews)

What Makes a Great Breast Augmentation Surgeon?

The most important step in your breast augmentation process is to find a plastic surgeon whom you can rely on not only the day of the surgery itself, but also during pre-surgery consultations and long-term care post-surgery.

What was great for a friend who had breast implants may not necessarily be the kind of great you're looking for. This is why it's crucial to find a plastic surgeon who understands your breast augmentation goals and shares your aesthetic sensibility.

When looking for the best plastic surgeon for your breast augmentation, it can get overwhelming and confusing really fast. Just about every plastic surgeon's website (including ours) will try and make the case as to why they are the right choice for you.

So how do you know which plastic surgeons are genuinely the best at breast augmentation? Look no further as we list some of the finest in the field across the United States.

1-year update!

Wow. I mean just wow. They bounce, they are perky, they feel so real, they look natural, proportionate and they are just beautiful. I can't recommend Dr. T enough... 6 stars if I could!

OH! and the scars... that is what I was worried about the most. What gentle hands because I can hardly see them and it's only been a year. I'm sure they will just about disappear by year 2 but honestly it doesn't even matter because the scars are so perfectly in the fold that you can't even see them. Thank you again!

Dr. John Tebbetts (Dallas, Texas)

Patient Reviews:

I met with Dr. Tebbetts before the surgery for my consult who was very courtesy, answered my questions and made me feel that he was, in fact, the best choice for the surgery. I also was given his book to read, which is an excellent resource. After my procedure, I received several follow up phone calls to check on how I was doing. The staff and Dr. Tebbetts are very caring, professional, and I am very pleased with my results. I am glad I made the decision to have my surgery at his office. - A. B.

Just had surgery yesterday and I feel and look amazing, I have no idea why the reviews are so low for Dr. Hochstein. I'm in love with the results and it's only been 1 day. Dr. Hochstein even called me and left a message at night checking up on me and to see if I had any concerns. Definitely worth every penny, can't wait for the swelling to come down and begin clothes shopping! I went from an A/B cup to a C cup. - Maria M.

Dr. Patrick Maxwell (Nashville, Tennessee) 


Dr. Patrick Maxwell has been recognized by both patients and his peers in plastic surgery as one of the best in breast implant surgery. He has been included in virtually every “Best Doctor” and “Best Plastic Surgeon” list compiled for the past two decades. Dr. Maxwell has also received many major awards bestowed by fellow plastic surgeons.

Patient Reviews:

Dr. Maxwell is an amazing doctor, and I feel blessed to have had him perform the revision for my breast reconstruction. I had my breast reconstructed after breast cancer/mastectomy in 2000. The original reconstruction by another doctor was never right, but I just made it work (swimsuits and snug tops were an impossible challenge because of the asymmetry which had worsened with age) for many years until I found Dr. Maxwell. Dr. Maxwell was highly professional and caring. He really is an artist. I believe he's actually invented devices or products for breast reconstruction. My surgery was several years ago and i'm still thrilled with the results.

Patient Reviews:

Everything has been great. Dr. Hammond did a great job answering questions and he seemed as excited I was about the procedure which relaxed me. The anesthesiologist was amazing, this part was the worst for me and I had so much anxiety, but he relaxed me and encouraged me through his explanation of the procedure and answering questions. My pre surgery nurse was Joanne and she was wonderful, kind, and very patient. The whole procedure went really well. I can't wait for my follow up appointment!
