Milwaukee is known for a lot. Bratwurst, our stunning art museum and more mark Milwaukee as one of America’s coolest up-and-coming spots.
One thing you might not know about Milwaukee, however, is that the city has a high standard of plastic surgery care. Talented plastic surgeons such as Dr. Mark Bosbous have chosen to call Milwaukee their home, providing top-of-the-line plastic surgery for not only Milwaukee residents, but people all over Wisconsin and beyond.
Of the many plastic surgeries one can have performed in Milwaukee, among the most popular is breast augmentation. But if you live in Milwaukee or a surrounding area and are considering getting breast implants, a breast lift, or both, there are few things you need to know before your procedure. These include how to find the right plastic surgeon, what the surgery itself entails, and more.
In this article, we’re going to give you all of the information you need before seeking breast augmentation in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
Finding a Doctor
Finding the right doctor is the most important step of the plastic surgery process. It’s so important, in fact, that we wrote a whole article detailing how you can find the best plastic surgeons in Milwaukee! You can find that article here.
To summarize, the three things you want to look for in a plastic surgeon are certification, accreditation, and conversation.
First, certification. Simply put, your plastic surgeon needs to be certified. Thankfully, checking a prospective surgeon’s certification is simple.
You can either search through a database like The American Board of Plastic Surgery (available here, though the search can be a bit finicky and tends to miss results), or you can utilize another resource like Certification Matters. Certification Matters will show you a surgeon’s certifications and any other relevant details.
For example, on Dr. Bosbous’s page, you can see that not only is he Board certified, but that he also participates in “Maintenance of Certification.” This is an ongoing process that ensures he always meets and exceeds the standards of his certification.
Second, accreditation. Where you have the plastic surgery performed should be an accredited facility. However, there are many accreditation organizations, and searching through them is difficult.
Instead, search for your prospective facility’s name and “accreditation” on your favorite search engine. From there, you should find a page where they will list all of their accreditations. Accreditations are a significant achievement for a facility, so if they’ve received them, they will most likely be open about which ones they have received. Any facility that does not share this information should set off alarm bells.
For an example of a Wisconsin facility who does it right, you can look to the Wisconsin Froedtert network, which puts all of its accreditations on one easy-to-navigate page.
The third major part of finding a plastic surgeon in Wisconsin is conversation. You should be able to talk openly with your surgeon, expressing your wants and needs while receiving potential solutions to your issues.
A good surgeon knows that you know yourself best, and they won’t try to up-sell you or convince you to get additional procedures.
After you’ve spoken with your surgeon, it doesn’t hurt to look around the internet to see what other people are saying about them. US News & World Report collects reviews on various surgeons, making it a good place to start your research.
This site also breaks down specific areas of success — you can look to Dr. Bosbous’ page as an example, where he’s received a consistent five star rating after almost 200 reviews.
Before the Procedure
While you might think that breast augmentation simply means breast implants, the reality is much more complicated.
For example, what is the purpose of your breast augmentation? Are your breasts uneven, and you wish to balance them out? Do you simply want to better fill out the bust of your clothing? What else is motivating you to get a breast augmentation?
These questions may sound superfluous — but to a talented surgeon, these little notes can make all the difference.
That’s why it’s difficult to say exactly what your breast augmentation might entail. You may find that implants alone are enough to achieve your desired results. On the other hand, you may find that a breast lift in addition to implants gets you your desired figure.
We lay out everything you can expect from a breast augmentation in Milwaukee on a separate page, including what your procedure might look like and what makes an ideal candidate for breast augmentation. You can find that page here.
The Procedure — and the Future
Once you’ve actually had your breast augmentation, any quality Milwaukee-based surgeon will follow up with you to ensure you are recovering at a steady and healthy rate.
While some have quicker recovery times, a full recovery from breast implants can take six weeks. Because of this, it’s important to have someone monitoring your progress and checking in to make sure everything is to your liking.
Soon, you’ll be off and ready to have the body you’ve always dreamed of — maybe just in time for Summerfest!
