The Facts about Breast Augmentation You Need to Know
Whether you want to call it breast augmentation, breast implant surgery, or even just a regular old “boob job” – these are all fairly common names given to popular aspects of breast enlargement surgery across the United States as well as the world. While breast enlargement surgery procedures have become more popular than ever before, its important that patients make sure not to take them lightly, and whether you want to increase your cup size, reduce your breasts or lift them post-pregnancy or weight loss, you want to enter into the process with your eyes wide open and fully informed. According to Dr. Sergey Voskin, a top breast augmentation doctor, at Goals Plastic Surgery, the more involved a patient is and the further into the entire breast augmentation process they delve into, the better their results will be and the more pleased they will be. All too often, when women do not do the necessary research on their breast enlargement surgery, and are not only unhappy with the results, but they feel they must also have revision surgery performed – not only costing much more, but forcing the patient to further risk their health and wellness.
When it comes to breast augmentation surgery, as opposed to a breast fat transfer, Dr. Voskin, the top breast augmentation doctor, at Goals Plastic Surgery will most often recommend patients choose to undergo, breast implant surgery rather than other methods such as a fat transfer – while the decision is depending upon the specific patient and what works best for them, and their specific body chemistry; overall the use of breast implant surgery is simply safer and more reliable than any other means of breast augmentation surgery, including a fat transfer. To best understand the procedure, you should understand each and every aspect that the process entails – from the initial consultation to the aftercare, and follow-up appointments as well.
What Does the Consultation Involve?
The consultation is far more important that patients realize, as it is about a lot more than just a physical examination. While a physical examination is certainly an important aspect of things, the consult is also a vital point at which you will get to know the doctor, and he or she will get to know you. One important thing that patients should look for is comfort level. As its important to understand you will be completely naked and having the most intimate areas of your body, poked, prodded and critiqued by this individual. As a top breast augmentation doctor, Dr. Voskin works particularly hard at making sure his patients feel fully comfortable. Not just with their insecurities and body issues, but also with how much they trust him essentially, with their lives, and how much they believe he will be able to perform a successful surgery, without any side effects or other issues. We must also go back to the physical examination – as during this part you and your surgeon will determine the size, shape, and overall placement of the breast implants you would like to have added. In addition, you will get an idea of what to expect and what not to expect from such a procedure. As any good breast implant doctor will tell you, its all about managing your expectations and understanding that while it will make your breasts larger, it wont change your life with the snap of a finger.
Deciding Size & Shape
When it comes to breast augmentation surgery, its vital that you know what you want and match that with your expectations. According to Dr. Sergey Voskin, plastic surgeon and a top breast implant doctor, while the end goal for such a procedure must be to achieve a look that you find attractive, and are happy with – no matter if you are lifting, making larger, or going smaller. Plus, there is something known as the magic ratio which must be considered – the magic ratio between the upper pole and lower pole (meaning the amount of tissue above and below the nipple). It should be a 45:55 ratio – 45% above the nipple and 55% below it. You want the breasts to be slightly fuller below than above. As any plastic surgeon would tell you, this ratio would lead to a slightupward angulation of the nipple. A natural upper pole slope from chest to the nipple, and a tight convex curve of the lower pole, from the nipple to the breast fold. According to Dr. Voskin, the top breast implant doctor in NYC, while these are often the ratio for most women, depending on a woman’s specific size and body shape, things may have to be adjusted slightly. The important thing to understand is that while most women are fine candidates for a breast implant surgery procedure, the fact is that those women on the two extremes – either those who are obese or those who are rail thin (often with an eating disorder), will not make good candidates at all and in fact, they may not even be able to properly handle the rigors involved with surgery and the recovery period at all.
