17 Oct How to navigate breast augmentation reviews
Trying to choose a clinic for breast augmentation? Here’s how to decode the reviews.
These days, a wealth of information about medical professionals and their clinics is available at the touch of a button. The rise of review platforms like Google and Yelp has made it quick and easy to find candid reviews to help decide whether a clinic is worth your time and hard-earned dollars. If you’re new to researching a plastic surgery procedure, all of this information can be difficult to navigate. Today we’ll be exploring breast augmentation reviews and how they can help you find the best surgeon for you.
1. Know what you want.
It’s a good idea to have a mental checklist of keywords that frame what you expect from a clinic. For example, is it especially important that your surgeon is approachable and patient with your questions? Do you want a specialist who has a long history of successful breast augmentations? At Somogyi Plastic Surgery we always remind our patients that they should feel confident asking questions, and should leave a consultation with no doubt that we prioritize their safety, health, comfort, and quality of results. Before you look at breast augmentation reviews, have a mental picture of your expectations and priorities for your surgical experience. That way you can rate how well the surgeon you’re considering matches these keywords and expectations.
2. Do your own research before you read breast augmentation reviews.
Any clinic you’re considering should have a clear outline of their priorities on their website and a detailed biography of each surgeon, including their background, education, values, approach, and experience. Dr Somogyi’s online presence is a strong example of a clear, detailed bio and CV. If you know you’re interested in breast augmentation, be sure to note the surgeon’s experience and expertise in this specific area. Once you’ve carefully considered a surgeon’s qualifications, you’re ready to look at some breast augmentation reviews.
3. Thoughtfully navigate and understand reviews.
Reviews and testimonials from real patients are important to consider and can be very insightful into the experience you may have with a particular surgeon. As you read, think about whether the praise is reflective of the type of experience you are looking for, and whether any concerns raised are ones that are likely to affect your own experience. We’re proud to share some of our favourite reviews of Dr. Somogyi below.
All this being said, nothing can promise or guarantee an outcome. It is still important to inform yourself by asking to see breast augmentation photos from consenting patients and ensure you are confident that your surgeon will help you select the procedure and type of implant that is best suited to you. Remember, your relationship with your surgeon lasts beyond the consultation and you should trust you will be well looked after.
4. Trust your intuition.
Breast augmentation reviews can be useful when choosing a clinic, but never underestimate what your gut is telling you. The way you feel when you enter a clinic or speak with your surgeon for the first time is important. You should feel confident in your surgeon’s abilities and approach so that you can enter this new step with confidence and positivity.
