Breast Augmentation

By | Main Feature | No Comments

Breast augmentation continues to be the most common aesthetic plastic surgery procedure performed on women of all ages.

Whether it’s a young girl
wanting to fill out her
clothing to a post partum
female wanting to rejuvenate
her breasts. The American
Society of Plastic Surgery reported over 290,000
breast augmentations done in the US in 2013.
Now that being said, I find myself having the
same conversation with each patient about size
and how to choose the “right” implant. So much
information is made available these days on
the internet, many women come in with an idea
of size or even a number in mind of the exact
implant they want. But just as no women is made
the same, the information online is not created equal.
Now, every surgeon has a different method on how to choose
an implant, but in my practice I think it’s important to educate the
patient and make them a part of the process. There is no question
that there are cultural norms, and regional disparities when
discussing breast shape and size with women, but the beauty of
being in Miami Florida, is that it has given me a window to all parts
of the world and taught me to be sensitive to different desires due
to differences in culture and definitions of beauty.
The one rule that in my opinion should always be respected
is ANATOMY. Every female is shaped differently and because
this is a “custom” procedure, every female’s unique shape and
structure should be the #1 factor that should never be violated.
Now moving on from this, it is important that we clear the slate of
what a women may have read or heard… because what a certain
implant may look like on someone they know, will look completely
different on them. Not every woman has the same skin quality,
skin stretch, breast tissue thickness, muscle
thickness, chest diameter, chest circumference,
breast footprint placement, etc etc.

So now that we can get to the basics, I think
this is where the magic happens. We take
measurements on a person’s chest that will give
us the baseline on where to begin. From here,
I always ask for a picture of what they would
desire in an ideal world. This I feel gives me the
visual cue of what they believe is a C cup, or
D cup. Women understand, even though they
quickly forget that a C cup in Victoria Secret
is not necessarily a C cup in La Perla. So that
being said, a picture is worth a thousand words.
It gives me the ability to define what a patient calls a C cup size.
This process will then direct me to certain styles and sizes of
implants all while respecting the anatomy. Now this part is where
the art begins and the understanding of the patient’s desires and
knowledge of tissue response come together.
Lastly a quick comment on overall shape and appearance.
I have women that come in on a daily basis requesting breast
augmentation, but stating they want a “natural result” and don’t
want to look like they have had an implant placed. I always ask,
what they define as “natural”? Well, I have found that most women
feel that natural is what they see in magazines where women
have some cleavage at the superior medial portion of the breast.
Unfortunately, this is not “natural” and although it does make for
a beautiful breast, it’s important to understand how a patient
sees and defines their look. In my practice this is where I begin to
discuss the option of anatomically shaped implants, but that is a
whole other conversation that I will leave for another day.
