I'd like bigger fuller breasts, but, not at a high risk of them looking fake, tight, scarred, lost sensation, wide spaced and/or pointing weird. ABPS, ASPS, Keller funnel, incision location, sizers. type (silicone/saline), trans-specialist vs skill, under/over muscle, anesthesia, specializes in 1 technique well or many? I've spent 30+ hours reading and feel more lost than before. It seems every dr. has one patient gone wrong. I'm active and want to look as natural as possible. Help! Los Angeles,

What can I do to pick the right dr?
Ultimately careful selection of plastic surgeon, careful communication of your goals (in my practice I prefer the use of goal pictures, direct examination/communication in front of a full-length mirror, in bra sizers, and computer imaging), careful measurements (dimensional planning), and skillful execution of the procedure will be critical.
I would suggest starting with the American Society of Plastic Surgery and/or the Aesthetic Society of Plastic Surgery to obtain a list of well experienced board-certified plastic surgeons. Then, I would suggest you visit a few surgeons whose practices concentrate on aesthetic surgery. ***Ask to see lots of examples of their work and preferably speak/see patients who have had similar procedures done.
I hope this (and the attached link and video, dedicated to transgender patient breast augmentation) helps.
