When considering breast augmentation, naturally many women will be considering the size, shape, and appearance of their potential breasts, states Dallas Plastic Surgeon Dr. Denton Watumull. For safety and outcome reasons, the experience of your surgeon also matters. Only plastic surgeons are extensively trained in cosmetic surgery on all parts of the face and body. Do you really want a surgeon who is only trained to operate on faces and necks to be operating on your body? Be sure to check your surgeon’s board certification specialty. The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) requires American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) certification for membership. The ASPS oversees continuing medical education, practice standards and ethics. The symbol of the ASPS has become a symbol of excellence in plastic surgery. plasticsurgery.org. You can check on specific physicians through the American Board of Medical Specialties website, CertificationMatters.org.
The difference between a standard, one-size-fits-all breast enhancement surgery and one tailored to the needs and goals of the patient can be significant in both the short and long term. Dr. Watumull suggests that enhanced safety and an improved outcome may be obtained through this individualized approach.
Providing exceptional service includes offering helpful advice about which breast implants will be right for the patient, Dr. Watumull explains. Just as important as surgical technique and innovative technology, is providing compassionate, convenient assistance at every stage of the procedure, including helping women understand what to expect during breast augmentation recovery. Following all provided instructions can optimize results and reduce the risk of complications. Well-informed patients who follow their post-operative instructions typically will be happier with their results.
Ultimately, Dr. Watumull believes that by providing an informative resource, compassionate care and advanced technology, he can offer patients an enhanced breast augmentation experience from start to finish. While he can provide guidance and advice, the woman must make the final decision, and the more she knows, usually the better the outcome will be.
