Breast Augmentation, Real People. Real Surgery: Episodes 1-3

This three part series features a real patient talking about her breast augmentation experience. These breast augmentation videos are intended to help you make an informed decision about plastic surgery and safely achieve a satisfied outcome when considering breast implants. While all three episodes address the importance of finding a plastic surgeon certified by The American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) and being informed and safe when considering breast augmentation, the videos also suggest that breast augmentation won't necessarily change one's looks to match an "ideal" image.

Episode 3

Episode 3 encourages patients to discuss their goals, concerns and set realistic expectations when considering breast augmentation.

The Steps You Should Take When Choosing an Injector

Only licensed and trained healthcare professionals have the experience necessary to administer non-surgical skin care injections. The legitimate source for healthcare professionals to purchase the FDA-approved products are from the manufacturer, therefore each label should have the manufacturer's name / hologram prominently displayed.

The Importance of Choosing a Qualified Injector

Any individual can claim to be a doctor, cosmetic surgeon or plastic surgeon. You should make it your first priority to check a physician's credentials. A doctor's training and certification should be appropriate to the planned procedure. Certification by The American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS) ensures extensive surgical training in all aspects of plastic surgery. US or Canadian membership in The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) means a surgeon is ABPS-certified and are highly trained and experienced plastic surgeons who concentrate their practices in performing cosmetic plastic procedures of the face and entire body.
