Hi Stacy, thank you for the question.
Your best option is to get a direct word of mouth referral or alternatively to log onto the SA Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons:
Under the Patient’s Corner tab one can search for registered surgeons in your area and my advice would be to make 2 to 3 consultations and go with the surgeon that you prefer.
Furthermore ask for before & after photographs of breast augmentation that each of these surgeons have performed and if possible ask to speak to some of the patients that the surgeon has treated. I would also ask which silicone implant they use as Allergan’s brand has shown to have a safer side effect profile.
