If you are considering breast augmentation surgery, then you are probably wondering about the process. Choosing the right surgeon is actually pretty similar to hiring other types of professionals, such as a wedding photographer or a contractor. You’ll want to make sure that the surgeon has undergone the proper training and has excellent credentials before you trust them with your body. In order to do so, it’s important to look at their past work to get a feel for what they offer. It takes time, patience, and research if you want to find the best doctor for the job. After all, this isn’t just a paint job in your home. These are your breasts, and you want a perfect doctor to take care of them.

Before-and-after pictures are important when it comes to breast augmentation. Choosing a surgeon who has the same beauty goals as you is important, and you will be able to see this through their work. This is why you should always ask at your consultation to see before-and-after pictures of women who have had work done from the surgeon in question. Look for the following when you are given the pictures in the office.

Body Types That are Similar to Yours

Every patient will have unique results when it comes to their surgery. We all carry extra fat in different places, and our bodies are all unique. However, it can still be helpful to look at photos of patients who have a body type that is similar to yours. You’ll be able to get an idea about what you can expect when you have the procedure done yourself. The pictures will also help you get a clearer picture of what certain breast implant sizes and shapes will look like when you have the procedure. You’ll also get a chance to see different placement techniques that the doctor offers.

Results that Look Natural

A skilled plastic surgeon like Dr. MacLennan will always want their patients to look and feel as beautiful and confident as possible. Because of this, you’ll want to find a surgeon who can provide the most natural-looking results possible. When you look at the after photographs, check for women who have noticeable improvements that still look natural on their bodies. While some women are okay with a more dramatic change, most women are looking for a subtle, natural change.

Scar Placement

No matter what kind of surgery you undergo, there will be scars afterward. However, a skilled plastic surgeon like Dr. MacLennan will know how to minimize the appearance of breast augmentation scars. A reputable plastic surgeon should be able to easily make the smallest possible incisions that will be concealed naturally by creases and clothing. However, you should also work with a doctor who is knowledgeable in superior incision techniques that will minimize any trauma done to the skin. Your incisions should heal quickly with minimal scarring.

Once you have found the perfect plastic surgeon whose before-and-after pictures align with what you are hoping for, it is time to set up a personal consultation to get the actual surgery done. When you meet up with a surgeon in their office, you will gain even more insight into their practice.
