Choosing The Best Plastic Surgeon to Remove Your Breast Implants

Choosing The Best Plastic Surgeon to Remove Breast Implants | HoustonWomen seeking breast implant removal should be aware that this cosmetic surgery can often be more complex than their primary breast augmentation. 

If you have previously had an unsatisfactory experience with your implantation surgery, it makes sense to look for a different surgeon who can remove your implants carefully. The surgeon should be able to eliminate any leakage of silicone or other complications during the procedure.

You should ideally choose an ABPS (American Board of Plastic Surgery) certified plastic surgeon. Any doctor may claim to be a cosmetic surgeon, but only an ABPS board certified surgeon will have the necessary training and skills to provide you with safe and predictable results. The ABPS website gives a detailed listing of all its board certified surgeons.

Your Decision

After you have chosen surgeon who has the ABPS certification in plastic surgery, there are many questions that you need to ask them to ensure you both are on the same page. You may ask the surgeon how many en bloc or total capsulectomy surgeries they have performed in the past in order to estimate their skills and experience.

Try to speak with one of your surgeon’s past patients who has had en bloc explantation to know more about their individual experience. Lastly, you may ask for breast implant removal before and after pictures from your surgeon.

To ensure that your surgeon is able to comprehend all your needs and expectations from the procedure, note down all the points you want to discuss and carry the list with you to your consultation. This way you will not forget or skip any of the vital discussion points during the consultation with your surgeon.


Why Select an ABPS Board Certified Plastic Surgeon?

The American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) is the only plastic surgery board that has recognition from the American Board of Medical Specialties. Many people are wrongly informed that their state medical boards offer a reliable indication of the skills and qualifications of the surgeon. 

It is not a legal obligation for surgeons to be trained in the exact surgical procedures that they offer to patients. You may never know whether your surgeon has received appropriate training or is experienced in performing breast implant removal. These issues make it vital for you to work with a surgeon who has been certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. 

To acquire this prestigious certification, a doctor must receive a minimum number of years of surgical training. In addition, they must go through residency training for at least a period of three years as well as pass written and oral examinations.

On the completion of their training, the surgeon should submit documentation on all the cases that they have undertaken to the board. The board also requires surgeons to sit for renewal exams every 10 years in order to maintain their certification.
