Breast augmentation is by far the most common plastic surgery procedure. Its quite simple to understand why. Female breast is an important part of a woman's femininity and self esteem. It is without a doubt a very rewarding operation especially when it is performed under optimal conditions. Long gone are controversies that first were related with breast augmentation. There is no relation with breast cancer as multiple studies have showed , there are no more problems with breast cancer detection in women that undergo breast augmentation as newer techniques allow radiologists to be very accurate. And of course there isn't correlation of the procedure with autoimmune diseases as it was thought in the past.
When a patient asks me about breast augmentation there are many factors we need to discuss and take in account. Before we analyze the more important ones let me first say that there is no "approach" that fits all. If you have done your search around the internet you will find a lot of "dogmatic" approaches that are advertised as "better". In my mind its patient has unique characteristics and the surgeon must present a plan according to them , not based to his own preference or ease.
Breast augmentation is a very rewarding operation. It makes women feel better for them selves in so many ways. Femininity, sexuality, self confidence may sound old fashion in a political correct society but they are still true.
