There are no small number of surgeons in Los Angeles offering breast surgery such as augmentation and lift, but it is very important to remember that not all of them are equally qualified.

Bearing in mind that your choice of breast surgeon will play a role in your safety and comfort as well as the final results of your procedure, taking time to choose the right one just makes sense. But with so many to choose from, how do you know what qualities a good breast surgeon should have?


Your Los Angeles breast surgeon should, without exception, be board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery (ABPS). Anyone with a medical degree can call himself a “cosmetic surgeon” and perform breast surgery. Only someone who has met the demanding requirements of the ABPS can call himself a board-certified plastic surgeon.

In addition to board-certification, your breast surgeon should:

  • Be actively involved in industry organizations
  • Have hospital privileges or his own accredited surgical suite
  • Be willing to work with you individually and provide you with personalized options

Your breast surgeon should have the capacity to understand your concerns and provide you with individual solutions. He should also have the experience and dedication to help ensure your procedure produces the natural-looking and complementary breast enhancement you deserve.
