What Should I Look for in a Breast Augmentation Doctor?

If you’re considering breast augmentation, one of the biggest decisions you’ll make is choosing the doctor to perform your surgery. This decision can make the difference between new, perky breasts that you’ll love /or unfortunate regret because of a botched surgery. These attributes are essential when looking for a top notch surgeon. Dr. Sajjadian has performed many thousands of breast augmentation procedures with excellent and beautiful results.

Plastic Surgeon (Not Just a Cosmetic Surgeon)

You don’t have to be a plastic surgeon to perform plastic surgery. Many doctors trained in other disciplines offer cosmetic procedures, including breast augmentation, to increase their bottom line. For a doctor with extensive training and experience in plastic surgery and reconstruction, choose a plastic surgeon. Plastic surgeons have typically received more training in the art of aesthetic, plastic and restorative medicine than your average cosmetic surgeon. Dr. Sajjadian is both a plastic surgeon and a former Assistant Clinical Professor of Plastic Surgery and has trained many currently practicing plastic surgeons. He focuses on maximizing safety and creating individually tailored beautiful results.

Board Certification

You may often hear doctors bragging about their board certification, but what does this actually mean? A board certified doctor has taken special tests (including written, practical, and simulator based tests) to demonstrate their skill and proficiency. Board certified doctors are considered some of the best in their field. Choosing a board certified plastic surgeon can help you to know that your doctor has the skills necessary to perform your breast augmentation surgery.

Dr. Sajjadian is one of the few U.S. plastic surgeons to hold triple board certification. He is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, the American Board of Otolaryngology, and the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.

Work You Love

Breast augmentation is both an art form and a surgical procedure. Choosing a surgeon whose work you love is essential. Ask to see before and after photos of real patients. Do you like what you see? Are these the results you’re hoping to achieve?

A Reputation You Can Count On

You can tell a lot about surgeon from the opinions of their patients. Read patient testimonials. Don’t stop there. You can also perform an online search on your surgeon to see any other available reviews.

Helpful Office and Nursing Staff

Your surgeon will be an important part of your breast augmentation experience, but equally important are the nurses and office staff you’ll work with throughout the process. Choose a doctor with a helpful, friendly staff. You want to feel comfortable throughout the surgical process from your consultation through the recovery period.

Choosing your doctor is one of the most important decisions you can make during the breast augmentation process. Take your time and make this decision carefully.
