Summer Accessories: Breast Enlargement

Breast augmentation or breast enlargement surgery continues to be the most requested elective cosmetic surgery in the U.S. According to  The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), more than 310,000 augmentations were performed in 2009 with a reported 10% increase for 2010.

To continue with my discussion of the seasonality of cosmetic surgery, summertime seems to be a popular time for breast enlargements.  This is often part of the Mommy Make-over.  I typically see an increase in appointments for consultations to discuss enlargements when the weather turns warm.

The most common concern among patients for this surgery is the question of implant size.   My patients often schedule follow-up appointments to try-on “sizers” to help them decide on the appropriate size that feels right for them.   Our staff is well trained to assist in this process.   Melissa’s Blog illustrates this particular dilemma and in one of her posts, she talks about trying to decide on her implant size before surgery.   As she mentions, I believe in having my patients make this rather personal decision.   To read Melissa’s Blog, click here.   We have also posted short film clips of her surgery and discussions about her experience after surgery.  “Restoring Jennifer” is a poignant documentary film about a young mom wanting to restore her figure after physical changes resulting from childbirth.
