Breast Implants: Must-Ask Questions for Your Surgeon

Every year in the U.S., there are millions of cosmetic procedures performed. One of the most common types of cosmetic procedures that women elect to have is breast implantation surgery. If you’ve been considering getting breast implants, here’s a list of some must-ask questions for your surgeon:



Are you certified?

Before a surgeon can become board-certified, they must have graduated from an accredited medical school, must have completed a residency in plastic surgery, and must have passed a certifying exam. In order to ensure that your surgery is being performed by a qualified plastic surgeon, make sure you ask them if they are board certified in plastic surgery.

What’s your level of experience?

In addition to asking about your surgeon’s certification, you should also ask them what type of experience they have, how many breast implant surgeries they’ve performed, where they attended medical school, if they’ve had any medical malpractice lawsuits filed against them, and anything else pertinent to their medical history.

What implant size should I choose?

If you’ve been considering breast implants, there’s a pretty good idea that you know what your desired implant size is. However, you may not know just how large you’d like, what shape you’d like, or what texture or material you’d like for implants. Through a consultation, your surgeon can provide you with the information to help you make your decision.

How are complications handled?

In the rare event that a complication does occur, it’s important that you know how it will be handled and that the surgeon and hospital has specific protocols in place. By asking how complications are handled, you’ll feel more at ease when you enter the operating room.

Other Questions

Depending upon your specific circumstances, you will also want to ask your surgeon questions about breastfeeding or pregnancy, exercise, working, driving, and more. It’s important to schedule a consultation with your surgeon to voice any questions or concerns that you might have.
