Is Your Surgeon Qualified to do Breast Augmentation
Please make certain that your PS is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and an active member of the american society of plastic surgeons. Review their before/after galleries and make sure your surgery will be performed in a fully accredited facility. Best wishes.

Does My Surgeon Have Enough Experience To Perform My Breast Surgery?
Thank you for your question. Your surgeon appears to have adequate experience with performing breast surgery. Numbers alone, however, is not enough to qualify your surgeon.
He or she must be board-eligible or board-certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery (no other board is acceptable). Additionally, take the time to review results of his/her work and be sure that you are comfortable with your doctor of choice.
Excellent question. Best wishes going forward
Expertise to Perform Breast Augmentation
Thank you for your question. 150 surgeries can certainly be enough, as long as your surgeon has the appropriate credentials. This means that they should be board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery with experience in this procedure. The most important part of any surgery is your comfort with the surgeon. My best advice would be to review pictures from the surgeon and voice any concerns before the surgery so that you are comfortable.
