When Michelle Trobaugh heard a radio advert where Dr. Jan Adams was advertising his plastic surgery services, she became interested and decided to go see him. Once in his office, she was enticed and lured by Dr. Adams’ charm to hire him to carry out the three plastic surgery procedures she wanted done. She scheduled an operation and in March 2006, she returned to have a breast augmentation, tummy tuck and liposuction. When she woke up the following day after her surgery, she felt like her body was not her own. That began her series of nightmares, where she lost a lot of blood and fluid and had to undergo a second surgery to drain fluid from her hips.
Mary felt that if she had taken time to find a good doctor, all this could have been avoided. As exciting as it can be to get the body that you have always wanted, it is important that you carry out due diligence when selecting a doctor to do plastic surgery on you. Here is how you can go about finding the best breast augmentation doctors.
1.No malpractice complaints against them
Check that the doctor you are interested in hiring does not have any malpractice judgment against them. You can easily do this by checking the Medical Board’s website since most boards list down any complaints brought against registered doctors and the judgments made on the cases. Avoid any doctor who has multiple complaints brought against them.
2. Shouldn’t convince you to do procedures you don’t want
The best plastic surgeons will be open to listening to what you have in mind. After listening, they can advise you on the best way forward. However, try and stay away from someone who is trying to coerce you into doing a procedure that you do not want. Some doctors may try and convince you to have more than one procedure done at a go, so that they can make more money. While the package price they may offer you may seem like a bargain, keep in mind that having more than one procedure done at the same time has higher risks.
3. Should be a good match
Pay keen attention to the doctor when you meet up with him. Check his bedside manner and his demeanor when interacting with you. The best breast augmentation doctors are professional and respectful towards their patients and take times to answer their questions well. This is usually an indication that they will treat you well during the pre and post operation period.
4. Will explain recovery expectations
You need to have clear expectations on how the procedure will go and how the healing process will take place. This will ensure that you are not caught off guard. The doctor will also explain things you can do to encourage you to heal faster and things you should avoid doing so as not to mess up the healing process.
5. Work with a good team
The best breast enlargement surgeons usually work with a professional team. This is important since apart from the doctor, you will have to deal with other team members as well, from the receptionist, to the nurses and other support staff. They should offer good customer service and not be rude to patients.
