A: When considering breast reconstruction surgery, always look for a surgeon who is a board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. The doctor should have the ability to provide patients with a full spectrum of reconstructive options, including implant reconstruction, autologous tissue reconstruction, and microsurgical reconstruction techniques. Ideally, the surgeon should have extensive experience with microsurgery.
