Top 5 Body Complaints: #1-Breasts too Small
Without a doubt, this is the most common body part complaint I hear. Nationwide women express their sensitivities about their diminutive breast size to plastic surgeons. Breast enlargement surgery is the most common cosmetic surgery procedure in the US according to The American Society of Plastic Surgeons, ASPS. I find this true in my own practice, as well.
Current simplified surgery makes breast enlargement a straight forward procedure. Through an inconspicuous 3/4 inch incision, a breast implant can be placed beneath the pectoralis muscle. Size is determined by the patient. Most of my patients have their pain controlled with a combination of Celebrex and Tylenol. No drains or tubes are necessary. I suggest not wearing a bra for about a week, in an effort to further reduce pain. Breast augmentation surgery is a commonly requested procedure for the Mommy make-overs. Patients often report a greater sense of positive body image and confidence following this surgery.
