PATIENT RESOURCES / DR’s Blog
For all the men out there, or ladies with men in their lives, men actually do care about how they look too. Consider the time spent jogging and going to the gym to get in shape. Look at the money we spend for clothes, grooming products and fancy cars that make us look good and feel good. The same is true for plastic surgery.
With so many plastic surgeons doing cosmetic surgery as well as breast augmentation surgery, you would think it would be a straight forward procedure. This misconception couldn’t be further from the truth.
For such a common procedure, there are several myths about breast augmentation that you really need to understand before you can make an informed choice. Through my experience as a plastic surgeon speaking to patients over the years, these are some of the key things people wonder about.
A breast lift and a tummy tuck are surgical procedures that go well together: one surgery day; one recovery; less costs; and an amazing body transformation. I perform breast and tummy surgeries together on a regular basis. It is referred to as the Mommy Makeover and is one of the most satisfying procedures for my patients and me. I see patients regularly who are interested in returning their bodies back to its pre-pregnancy stage.
What one person considers a natural looking breast augmentation, may not be same for the next. I personally believe that the most beautiful breast augmentation is one that looks so good, people wonder if you had surgery, but so natural looking that they are left guessing. Once it is easy to recognize an implant, some of the wonder and beauty is lost.
