There are many reasons why women may consider breast enhancement surgery. Factors such as weight gain/loss, illness, pregnancy, breastfeeding, irregular shape and size, sagging and cancer are just a few situations that can influence this decision.
According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, in 2014, more than 286,000 women decided to have breast enhancement surgery making it the #1 cosmetic surgical procedure in the country.
During this initial meeting it is important that your plastic surgeon understands your goals and desires. Health issues, potential risks and expectations should be discussed. It is important to have open communication so the surgeon can determine the most appropriate options for the patient. Moving forward there are several options to discuss including the type of incision, implant placement, plus implant type, size, shape and surface.
