The Importance of Shared Vision in Surgery

Each person, including your plastic surgeon, has his and her own aesthetic preferences about what looks best. That’s why, when it comes to breast augmentation in Florida, it’s important that each patient finds a plastic surgeon who understands her goals and shares her vision of beauty. I’ve found that a comprehensive consultation is the key to creating a shared vision of your desired surgical results.

The Consultation: Your Opportunity to be Heard

A personal consultation with a plastic surgeon allows you to explain your expectations. I usually suggest that my breast augmentation patients bring in photos of women they would like to emulate. This gives me a good idea of what they find attractive. After evaluating their physical frames and breast measurements, I can determine whether we can achieve the look they are hoping for. If I believe their expectations are reasonable, I then create a detailed surgical plan tailored to their body type and goals.

Customize, Customize, Customize

Be sure to find a surgeon who will personalize your surgery, rather than one who uses a “cookie cutter” approach, which can often lead to dissatisfaction. He or she should offer you a range of options for breast implants and procedural techniques. Some of those choices should include:

  • Breast implant size and style
  • Breast implant profile
  • Submuscular or subglandular placement
  • Incision placement
