You deserve nothing less than the best, and that is certainly true when it comes to plastic surgery. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, I often meet with women who are as excited about the possibilities of breast augmentation as they are anxious about achieving results they love. When you invest the time and trust it takes to transform your body, you want to be sure your result is everything you have dreamed of.
Fortunately, there are a few steps you can take to make sure your surgical experience is everything you want it to be and more. In this blog post, I will share my tips for achieving the breast augmentation results you adore.
Choose the Best Breast Surgeon for You
Qualities to look for include:
- Credentials: Your surgeon should be board certified (certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery), have an exceptional educational background, and have extensive experience performing breast enhancement procedures.
- Focus on safety: Your surgeon should follow safety protocols and use devices such as the Keller Funnel® to prevent infection and other possible complications.
- High patient satisfaction: Look for positive reviews and testimonials that speak to the surgeon’s skill and bedside manner.
- Before-and-after photos: Browse online photo galleries to see real examples of a surgeon’s work.
Ultimately, the best surgeon for you will be the one who makes sure you feel heard and cared for at each step of your breast augmentation journey.
Predict Your Results With 3-D Imaging
Crisalix® 3-D imaging allows you to visualize how your results may look so you can be sure you and your surgeon are on the same page. This takes much of the guesswork and uncertainty out of moving forward with your procedure. When you and your surgeon have a clear and agreed-upon vision for your results, it minimizes your chances of ending up with an outcome you do not love.
Customize Your Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation is not a one-size-fits-all procedure. Your body is unique, and your procedure should be, too. Work with your surgeon to select an implant material, size, placement, and incisions to create results that flatter your body and fit well with your lifestyle.
Consider Combining Breast Enhancement Procedures
In some cases, achieving the best breast enhancement results means combining more than one approach. Adding a breast lift to your augmentation, for example, may give you a more youthful, perky look than implants alone.

Honor the Recovery Process
Breast augmentation recovery is not especially long, but the first couple of weeks make a big difference when it comes to your results. Closely follow your aftercare instructions to help your incisions heal beautifully and prevent any complications such as infection or rupture. As you resume your usual activities and exercise routine, ease back into it slowly to avoid any injury or cause issues that may compromise your results.
