I get messages all the time about “The Recommended Surgeon Lists” online and inside Facebook Groups and what to do if a surgeon isn’t on the list.
I think it’s a great general list to start with, but it should not be considered the “all be” list.
My advice to you is:
* If you find a local surgeon who will do a proper explant (en Bloc & capsulectomy)… go with him/her.
* Just because a surgeon is NOT on “the lists” doesn’t mean they’re not qualified to perform your surgery.
* There are thousands of surgeons all around the world that are NOT on the list that are fantastic surgeons who will do a proper explant and give you an awesome experience.
* The lists you see out there are simply general recommendations of surgeons who come highly recommended. That’s it.
Don’t allow anyone inside of a Group or online to bully, manipulate or brainwash you into thinking that “a surgeon is not qualified” just because they’re not on a stupid list, that who knows who created for for who knows what intentions.
💖This is YOUR decision, YOUR body, YOUR health, YOUR life.
”The Recommended Surgeon Lists” out there, in Groups and on websites, tend to be causing way too much confusion and worry. I personally deal with it daily from desperate women who just want to get their explant done but feel stuck because a surgeon they want to use isn’t on “The Recommended Surgeon List”.
If you find a surgeon who can/will do an explant en Bloc with a capsulectomy – that’s your surgeon!
There’s a member in my Facebook Group
, Anne Gudson Ziegenhorn, who has a list that I trust. Feel free to reach out to her for help, suggestions and advice.
I’m not associated or affiliated with her/any list, nor do I want to be, but I know Anne, her non-profit (which you should ask her about) and trust her intentions and heart. She can even help you with insurance and raising money for your surgery, if you need to go that route.
At the end of the day I recommend to be your own advocate, do your own research and do what’s right for you and your body.
You will always have my support… no matter which surgeon you chose ❤︎
here’s to regained health, rejuvenation and massive self-love,
