Cosmetic Surgery is designed to either change a body feature that you do not like, or to make you look younger. In today’s economic climate, cosmetic surgery is more than just a matter of vanity. It can mean economic survival for many because it may be exactly what some people need to get that job – or keep the job they already have.
As a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, my job is to help my patients achieve a certain look they desire. I encourage my patients to be as specific as possible with me about the type of look that they are trying to achieve. It follows, therefore, that my patients often use celebrities as examples. No one says to me, “I want to look like X”. Rather, they say “I want lips like X, and breasts like Y.” Patients now dissect celebrities into specific body parts. It reminds of that scene from Weird Science where they input data into the computer and out pops a beautiful Kelly LeBrock. What are the most common celebrity body parts on people’s wish list?
According to national data, the most common reason for reoperation after breast augmentation is not implant rupture, infection, or scarring….it is size change! It is all too common for women to undergo breast augmentation yet still feel like they want to be bigger. As a board certified plastic surgeon specializes in cosmetic breast surgery, this makes me crazy because it is preventable.
