Louisville Breast Explant

I am very fearful of going through explantation surgery due to the possible aesthetic outcome. I would love any references for experienced doctors in Louisville, KY with this type of procedure. I have been searching for 6 months now and have yet to find a doctor who has much, if any experience with this. Thanks for your help!

The ASPS website is a good starting point for qualified board certified plastic surgeons. Dr. Marc Salzman or Dr. Martin Fox are possibilities. Consult 3 - 4 surgeons to understand your options.

Finding Surgeon?

Thank you for the question.

I agree that you need to do your research and choose a surgeon who is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (not cosmetic surgery) and a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.  From here, you know you are selecting from qualified surgeons.  You need to meet with the surgeon, see many examples of their work and talk to patients about their experience with the surgeon and the staff.  If there is a way to speak to and meet patients who have undergone a similar procedure, that is usually very useful.

Best wishes.
