When a woman begins her search for a plastic surgeon to perform breast enhancement surgery, it can be hard to know where to start. There are many surgeons offering breast augmentation near Downers Grove, IL. Some have exceptional training and credentials, along with years of experience.

Identifying a highly credentialed and well-qualified plastic surgeon is essential for women who want to achieve beautiful and natural-looking breast augmentation results.

Reading Real Patient Reviews

So what’s the best way to find a qualified plastic surgeon? I suggest you look into websites that publish reviews written by actual patients, such as Vitals, RealSelf, or Yelp. If you don’t have a personal friend or family member who can refer you to a plastic surgeon, you can find advice from actual patients on review sites. Not only can you read about patients’ experiences, but you can also learn more about the surgeon’s background and qualifications. For example, on my Vitals site, you can find out where I attended medical school and also see the hospitals where I have plastic surgery privileges.

Checking the Surgeon’s Qualifications

While verified reviews are a great starting point, don’t rely solely on review sites. Ideally, after narrowing your search, you will look at a surgeon’s website to get a better understanding of the various techniques they offer. It’s also important to ensure your surgeon is certified as a plastic surgeon by The American Board of Plastic Surgery. Some doctors call themselves “board-certified,” but their certification may solely be for “cosmetic surgery.” The American Board of Cosmetic Surgery, in fact, is not a legitimate board recognized by the American Board of Medical Specialists.

Scheduling One-On-One Consultations

Ultimately, it’s best to schedule a few consultations with the doctors who are your top choices once you’ve checked out reviews and verified credentials. Your consultation also helps your surgeon determine if you’re a good candidate for the procedure you’re pursuing. After the consultation, you should be confident that the surgeon you select is the right one for you. A few considerations to keep in mind during your appointments include:

  • Is the surgeon carefully listening to your goals and concerns?
  • Has the surgeon presented all available options to you?
  • Is the office environment welcoming and professional?
  • Do you feel the surgeon’s personality is a good match for you?
  • Are you getting honest and informative answers to your questions?

When you leave your consultation, you should feel supported, safe, and excited about taking your next step with your plastic surgeon, their support team, and their practice.
