You need a highly trained and experienced plastic surgeon to perform your breast removal because it can be a more complicated cosmetic surgery than the original breast augmentation. If you have already had an unsatisfactory experience with your breast implants, it is essential to look for a surgeon that can remove your implants with caution.
Your surgeon should be able to reduce any silicone leakage or other problems that can arise during the surgery.
It is best to choose a plastic surgeon who is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. Any doctor can call themselves a cosmetic surgeon, but only those who are board certified will have the necessary professional training and skill to perform the procedure safely. The ABPS website lists all board certified plastic surgeons.
Board certified plastic surgeon Dr. Eugene Kim provides breast implant removal to patients in Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, Santa Monica, West Hollywood, CA, and surrounding locations.
Once you have chosen the right surgeon who has experience in breast explantation, you should ask a number of questions to ensure they understand your needs. Ask the surgeon how many en bloc or total capsulectomy surgical procedures they have performed to assess their experience and skill.
You may even speak with one of the surgeon’s past patients who has undergone en bloc explantation to know about her experience. Lastly, you may ask for breast implant removal before and after pictures related to the surgeon’s own patients.
Make sure that you and your surgeon are on the same page about your goals and concerns about the cosmetic surgery. You should list down all your questions, doubts and expectations and discuss this list with your surgeon during your consultation. This will enable them to address all your questions comprehensively.
Why Choose an ABPS Board Certified Plastic Surgeon?
Patients should preferably work with an American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) certified plastic surgeon for their breast implant removal surgery. A large number of people are wrongly informed that a state medical board membership offers a reliable indication of the skills and qualifications of the surgeon.
However, it is not a legal requirement for surgeons to be trained in the exact surgical procedures that they offer to the patients. Hence, it is even more important for patients to find an ABPS certified surgeon for their surgery.
To obtain this prestigious certification, a doctor needs to have a minimum number of years of surgical training. Correlating with this, they must undergo residency training for at least a period of three years and clear both the written and oral examinations.
On the completion of their training, the surgeon is required to submit documentation on cases that they have performed to the board. The board also requires the surgeons to take renewal exams every ten years to continue their certification.
ABPS certified plastic surgeons invest significantly in best medical practices and high quality standards, pursue continuing education, embrace innovative surgical techniques, and follow the modern and up-to-date safety protocols to deliver predictable surgical results to their patients.
