Questions a plastic surgeon would ask another re Breast Augmentation
2. How many breast augmentations do you do each year (I'd be looking for at least 100 each year for top level experience).
3. How many of your patients honestly need revisions each year (I would hope for less than 3), preferably only 1).
4. What is your capsular contarcture rate (nationally it is 8-9% but can be as low as less than 1% in some practices).
5. Do you routinely lower the inframammary crease? (This is being done far too often these days and is in vogue but can create other problems like double bubbles and bottoming out).

If you have the right credentials, do the operation a lot, and your pictures represent good work...then you should have a good surgeon.
