3 Questions to Ask Your Surgeon Before Breast Augmentation

Published by DR. Bradley Ashpole

1. Are you certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery?

The number one question you should ask before your breast augmentation near Palatine is if your surgeon is properly certified. The American Board of Plastic Surgery is a strict certification that requires years of general and plastic surgery training in addition to adherence to a strict code of medical ethics. There are many plastic surgery scams you may come across with unethical and inadequate experience—don’t let these tricks fool you!

Dr. Bradley Ashpole is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery for more than 10 years.

2. What anesthesia can I expect during my procedure?

During a breast augmentation in Palatine, there are 3 main types of anesthesia you could be administered. General anesthesia will ensure you are asleep throughout the procedure. Local anesthesia is when only the specific surgical site will be numbed for the procedure.  Finally, you may be administered IV sedation/”twilight anesthesia”. This anesthesia alters your level of consciousness. Each form of anesthesia has its pros and cons. Talk to your plastic surgeon about which anesthesia will be best for you during your breast augmentation in Palatine.

3. What are the risks associated with breast augmentation?

It is important to weigh the pros and cons of a breast augmentation surgery. If you are in contact with a board certified plastic surgeon, the surgeon will be able to inform you of the risks associated with the surgery. Ask if you are a good candidate for breast augmentation.
