I have consulted with and put non-refundable money down with a doctor who is a fully trained General Surgeon and Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. He has performed quite a few augmentations. However, after discovering that I have tuberous breasts with asymmetry, and that this takes some additional skill to treat, I am wondering, do I need to see a surgeon who specializes in this? Or should my doctor be capable of handling this?
A: Board Certified in Plastic Surgery is a great start
Board certification in plastic surgery is a great start. Now you need to learn about his experience and practice. Meet him for your consultation. Make a thorough list of questions and listen carefully to the explanations provided. Ask to see some photos of patients with treatments similar to you. Sometimes the office may offer to contact past patients so that you may discuss with them their experience. If you are not sure, seek another opinion before committing to a treatment plan. Good luck.
