My surgeon on breast augmentation; asked how many BA's she's performed in 2 years, she said "over 100". Is that good?

100 BA over 2 years?
Breast augmentation - is 100 ok?
- It sounds a very good number so she knows how to do the procedure.
- Now the question is, is she the right surgeon for you?
- Did she take time to discuss the surgery and recovery?
- Did she discuss your implant choices
- Did she help you decide on the best implant for the look you want?
- Did you like her?
- Is she a qualified plastic surgeon? If 'yes' to all - then she is probably the right surgeon for you. Good work!
- Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
Selecting a plastic surgeon for breast augmentation…
Generally, when it comes to selection of plastic surgeon, taking your time and making your decisions carefully will be worth the effort. I would suggest starting with your national 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 (dedicated to breast augmentation surgery concerns), helps. Best wishes.

Ask the right questions.
Yes, that is a good number of cases, but I would echo the comments of the other surgeons here. The number of cases is only one aspect. You should feel comfortable with your surgeon and make sure you have a good rapport. Look for the letters FRCS(Plast) after her name to ensure she is a fully qualified plastic surgeon and she should ideally hold (or have held) a consultant post in the NHS.
Any fully trained plastic surgeon will be competent at performing breast augmentation, but if you have a more complex case, then look for someone who specialises in breast surgery in their NHS practice.
