Body Image and Self-Confidence: Breasts

November 10th, 2016

Is it true that how you feel about your body image affects your self-confidence? During my practice as a cosmetic surgeon for over 30 years, I have found that many patients report they have a renewed level of self-confidence after their recovery from cosmetic surgery. Perhaps the perception of feeling that a physical change reflected in body image contributes to feeling better about yourself. This change may contribute to a boost in self-confidence. Certainly this has been the case with Lisa. She graciously shared her story and insights with “Twin Cities Live” awhile ago, but this same scenario happens every week with patients in my office following surgery. My staff and I always appreciate hearing stories like Lisa’s. Sometimes a subtle change can even make a difference, particularly for women experiencing physical changes to their body following pregnancy. Often these changes cannot be fixed through diet or exercise, but elective cosmetic surgery can be the answer. Collectively these surgeries have been referred to as Mommy Makeovers. Breast restoration after pregnancy is one particular surgery that is quite effective in restoring a woman’s figure to eliminate breast sagging and/or loss of fullness. Watch Lisa’s story on our Nipntuck YouTube channel in this video.

Thank you again to Lisa for allowing the “Twin Cities Live” cameras to document her story.

Mommy Make-over: Breast Restoration

May 14th, 2012

Example of a typical Saline Implant (not Sue’s surgery).  307,000 women chose breast augmentation last year.

Sue writes about her experience:

My breasts went down a cup size after I breast fed my children. I wanted to have them fixed for years, but put it off. I finally decided to go in and have them enlarged to fix them. It has now been four weeks since I had them done. I must be honest, it did take a little bit of time for me to get used to them. But I love them now and am sorry that I waited so long to have them done.

I encourage anyone that is thinking about having them done to go in for a consultation with Dr Bashioum and his staff. They answered all of my questions that I had and I never felt pressured. I will definitely pick Dr Bashioum again if I have any more work done.
