Breasts are like sisters, not twins. I don’t know who said it first, but googling the quote finds over 15 million web pages in 0.42 seconds. Over the last twenty years I have measured a lot of breasts, and like most generalizations, exceptions exist, but they are rare. I bring it up because today the San Francisco Plastic Surgery Blog is all about Breast Augmentation.
“Natural” Breast Augmentation
Usually, the goal of Breast Augmentation is to make the breasts larger, but still “natural-looking.” What is meant by natural varies patient-to-patient, but the word proportionate often comes up.
Whether it’s restoring volume lost to childbirth, weight loss or poor luck in the gene pool, creating breasts that are proportionate can help with how bathing suits fit, dresses hang and a woman’s confidence in general. A big part of my job it trying to determine the comfort range for Breast Enlargement. Some of those points are reviewed below in this Breast Implant Television Presentation, which first aired on KRON 4’s Body Beautiful last month.

A Few Words and Pictures About Breast Implants
The above video answers some of the most frequently asked questions about Breast Implants, and the Breast Augmentation procedure is reviewed and illustrated with several Breast Augmentation Before and After Pictures. While it cannot substitute for an in person consultation with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, the goal is to provide some general information that can be viewed at your leisure.
Breast Implants Come in Many Shapes and Sizes
The fact that breast implants are available in many shapes and sizes has never been more true, or more confusing, for my patients. Last year, Sientra expanded their breast implant options with new sizes and shapes. Earlier this year, Allergan received FDA approval for their Natrelle Inspira line of breast implants. With five profiles and sizes ranging from 110 to 800 cc’s, the Inspira Breast Implants alone provides me with over 200 new options, and options are good.
Schedule Your Breast Augmentation Consultation
Now, before you try to figure out exactly which Breast Implant is right for you, get some guidance. The most critical piece of information you can bring to your breast implant consultation is the size you expect to be after surgery. You can bring pictures, a stuffed bra, a friend, whatever it takes to communicate the goal. That one piece of information is the most important piece of information I need to determine which breast implant will do the job best for your frame.
If you are ready to take the next step toward Breast Augmentation, give me a call at (925) 943-6353. I can give you the information you need to make an educated decision, and sort through the thousands of options currently available, and if I can make your sisters, look a little more like twins, so much the better.
