How To Choose A Surgeon For Breast Reduction Surgery?

Getting cosmetic surgery is an important step, so it is vital to choose someone you trust and are comfortable with. If you are considering getting a reduction mammoplasty or a breast reduction with liposuction – and if still need the right breast reduction surgeon – please read our pointers below to find a surgeon that can provide you with the right treatment.

How Do I Find An Honest And Trustworthy Surgeon For My Surgery?

When you go for your initial appointment with a cosmetic surgeon, you will get the opportunity to evaluate the trustworthiness and skill of your surgeon yourself. A good surgeon must always provide the patient with all the information, even if this includes things the patient might not want to hear.

A good example of a good surgeon is someone who will discuss a surgical procedure candidly, which includes the risks accompanying that procedure. If a certain surgeon tells you there is absolutely no risk connected to a surgical treatment, it might be best to choose someone else.

There are some things patients must look out for during this initial consultation. As we mentioned earlier, the surgeon must mention the risks of the procedure. However, he must also convey to you if your results are realistic, attainable, and safe. Good surgeons will also disclose the cost of your procedure during this consultation.

Do All Surgeons Offer Follow-Up Appointments?

A good surgeon could be recognised by his experience, but the nature of a good surgeon is also determined by follow-ups and additional appointments. If a surgeon only executes the procedure and does not provide you with a follow-up, then this surgeon is not providing you with the standard of care you deserve.

After undergoing breast reduction, the surgeon can evaluate the healing process and check for complications. During their recovery, patients must get the opportunity to call their clinic if they have questions and concerns too. If you wish to evaluate this aspect of the surgeon you are considering, you could check reviews from patients who have visited the clinic in the past. Most of these reviews can be found online but should always be obtained from a website independent from the surgeon’s website.

An increasingly large amount of patients now opt for Breast Surgery Reduction procedures. In addition to follow-up appointments, it is also a good idea to check if your surgeon offers any treatments that could help speed up the healing process. Even though this is not a requirement to find a good breast reduction surgeon, it could help your recovery process after your surgery.

Why Is The Experience Of Your Breast Reduction Surgeon Important?

As we mentioned earlier, the experience of a cosmetic surgeon does matter! On the website of a cosmetic surgeon, you can usually find information about the experience of a surgeon and his specialisation. It should also state how many procedures (approximately) the surgeon has executed, although this is not fully necessary to find a good surgeon.

When a surgeon executes a procedure such as the reduction mammoplasty, he removes excess breast tissue and skin. During this procedure, he can also move the nipple and areola to make them match with the new breast size and shape. Naturally, this is a delicate procedure that requires extensive skill.

The same applies to breast reduction with liposuction, a procedure where the surgeon reduces the size and weight of heavy breasts by removing fat through liposuction. Not every surgeon offers this procedure either, so if you want to have this procedure to reduce neck and shoulder pain due to large breasts, you must find a surgeon such as Dr Lanzer, who specialises in the technique.

Naturally, the experience of a surgeon is not the only aspect you base your decision on, but you can base your decision partly on it. Simply combine this information with all the other information you found mentioned in this article.

Why Is It Important To Feel Comfortable With A Cosmetic Surgeon?

Another important aspect of choosing the right surgeon is that you choose someone you are comfortable with. If you do not have trust in your surgeon’s ability – or if the surgeon in question makes you feel uncomfortable during your initial consultation – it might be better to consider another surgeon.

When you are not comfortable with your surgeon, it can be more difficult to talk to him or her. Therefore, you might not be telling your surgeon your requirements and the results you wish to obtain from the surgery. This could in turn be problematic regarding the results you obtain afterwards.

Which Details Should I Obtain During My Initial Consultation?

If you have a consultation with the surgeon of your choice, it is also good if your surgeon takes the time to explain the procedure to you. Do not let yourself be rushed and ensure that you understand all the aspects of your procedure; this could include the execution of the procedure, the level of care provided by the clinic and the overall cost of your procedure. If you feel like the surgeon is rushing you to decide without providing the information you require, it might be better to choose another surgeon.

Should I Ask For Before And After Photographs?

One of the things that must be present on the website of a cosmetic surgeon is a page with some before and after photos. Ideally, the website will contain before and after photos for each of the procedures offered by that surgeon. Based on those examples, you can determine (to some degree) the skill of the surgeon and his overall experience.

Please note that before and after photographs are only examples; this means that the results obtained by any procedure will be unique to you. If you want more insight in the results you could expect, always speak to your cosmetic surgeon and never base your expectations on before and after photographs online.
