How do I find a reputable surgeon for breast asymmetry surgery?
This is vitally important. Cosmetic surgery is not something to be entered into lightly. It needs to be treated in the same way as any other surgery. Surgery can be traumatic for the body and even though it is safe and successful, things can go wrong. Complications are rare but they do happen. Even the most experienced and best surgeons experience complications.
The vast majority of people who have surgery have trouble free procedures and are extremely happy with the results. But, bear in mind that no process is 100% and this equally applies to cosmetic surgery.
So, with this in mind you now need to find a good, reputable surgeon…
Ideally, you want to find someone who is not only experienced in this procedure but can guarantee you the best result possible. What you don’t want is a badly done procedure. A badly done procedure means that you will have to undergo further surgery and this will be more difficult than the first.
Right, where do you start? A good place to start is with your GP. Don’t assume that he/she will try to put you off from having surgery. He/she will listen sympathetically to you and can recommend a good surgeon. If there is a chance that the NHS will pay for your surgery then he/she can refer you to a surgeon.
Talk to other people who have had this surgery as they will be able to put you in contact with their surgeon. Word of mouth always helps. If there is a patient support group for your type of surgery then contact them as they will also be able to help.
You will also need to do your homework with this and draw up a shortlist of surgeons. As with any thing in life you need to explore several options before choosing the right one and this isn’t any different.
Good places for reputable surgeons are the General Medical Council (GMC), BAPRAS or BAAPS (professional cosmetic surgery associations) and the British Association of Cosmetic Surgeons.
There are also various websites which contain useful guidelines about choosing a surgeon. They also contain lists of surgeons in all regions of the country. Visit Cosmetic Surgery Consultants and Private Healthcare UK for this information. The Consulting Room and www.cosmeticsurgeon.co.uk are equally useful.
What you want is to ensure that your surgeon is qualified, experienced in breast asymmetry surgery and is someone you trust. It helps if you can relate to him/her. Choose someone you like and feel comfortable with. Remember, you are placing your life in his/her hands!
The cost of the surgery is important but should not be the driving force. You should be concerned with the ability and expertise of the surgeon rather than how much it will cost.
