What is a Breast Augmentation Expert?

Practice makes perfect, and it’s been shown in studies of numerous surgical specialties that the greater number of surgeries a surgeon performs, the better the outcome, and the lower the complication rate. This is true for heart surgery, joint replacements, hernia surgery and Dr. Feldman firmly believes that it holds true for breast augmentation. This is why seeking consultation, and surgery, from a breast augmentation specialist, not just any board certified plastic surgeon who dabbles in breast surgery and all other aspects of plastic and reconstructive surgery, is so important. But that begs the question, what exactly is a breast expert?

Dr. Feldman considers a breast expert to be a fully trained, board certified, plastic surgeon, who has performed at least 1000 breast augmentations in their career. To ensure the breast augmentation specialist is up to date on current techniques and implants, they should have performed 300 or more breast augmentations per year, for at least the last two calendar years.

It’s still important to remember having breast augmentation surgery by a breast augmentation expert doesn’t guarantee your result or guarantee zero complications, but it does increase the chance of success and reduce the risks.

SM, Baytown, TX

"I cannot tell you how pleased I am with the whole augmentation process.  I really thought I would feel awkward, but at no time during my experience did I.  Everybody at the office is awesome. I'm actually sad that's it's over. I guess what I really want to say is Thank You...to everybody, especially Dr. Feldman and Jeannette, for giving me a new sense of confidence.  I cannot believe the difference in how I feel about myself.  They look amazing!!"
