Why are Botched Breast Augmentations on the Rise?

Why are Botched Breast Augmentations on the Rise?

While it’s unfortunate, the truth is that botched breast augmentation surgeries are on the rise in the U.S. In fact, one study notes that the number of patients who have experienced a ruptured implant has increased significantly in the past few years.

I say this not to frighten you, but to educate you on how you can avoid being a victim of a flawed procedure.

With breast implants being the most performed cosmetic procedure in country today, it has opened the door to many surgeons who say they can perform them…when, in all honesty, they aren’t up to par on the intricacies of this highly specialized procedure.

Much like it is played out in the popular TV show “Botched,” some surgeons just aren’t qualified to perform breast augmentations. However, many women are seeking the quickest and cheapest breast augmentation they can find and will compromise their health — and their results — to get it.

Read on to learn more about the importance of choosing a qualified breast augmentation plastic surgeon for procedure.

What’s your bottom line?

I always like to ask patients, “What matters to you most?” when it comes to their breast augmentation. And, more often than not, my patients want a result that they are happy with. While everyone’s financial situation should be carefully considered prior to committing to a breast augmentation, making price your bottom line can be dangerous.

At our practice, we place patient satisfaction at the top of our list. But we also want to make getting the body you desire affordable and attainable for everyone. We believe we offer fair prices for our services, as well as ways to finance your procedure, including Care Credit — a financing option that allows you to receive your procedure now and pay it off over time.

Our highly trained staff is happy to review your payment options to find a plan that is right for you.

Asking the right questions

Whether you decide to see us for your breast augmentation or another plastic surgeon, it is very important to arm yourself with the right questions to ensure you are making the right decision.

These questions include:

-Is the surgeon board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery?
-How many breast augmentations has he/she performed?
-Has the doctor has any malpractice judgments against him/her?
-Do you feel uncomfortable as if you’re being “sold” on additional services that you don’t want?
-Do you feel your surgeon understands your needs and has a kind, caring bedside manner?
-Is the office and its staff inviting?

Educating yourself on your surgeon is key component to a successful procedure.
