Dr. Law’s Philosophy on Natural-Appearing Breast Augmentation
I have never understood the desire on the part of patients or physicians (especially physicians) to create unnaturally large breasts. I see ‘before and after’ photos at plastic surgery meetings and I almost always find myself asking the question: What’s the `big’ idea?
I view breast augmentation as more than a breast enhancement surgery. It is a total body contouring surgery, and the breast profile that one creates with implants should match a patient’s overall figure. It should appear completely plausible that the breasts have not been surgically enhanced. I want for my patient’s appearance to make others think “Wow – what a great figure”, not “I wonder who her plastic surgeon is”.
Over and over I hear patients remark, after reviewing some of our `before and after’ photos, that they had no idea that a breast augmentation could look so natural. It can, and in my opinion it should. Having practiced plastic surgery in the ‘breast augmentation capital of the world’ (Los Angeles), and having performed hundreds of breast augmentations in North Carolina for patients who are seeking a breast enhancement that looks like it actually is a natural part of their body, I have developed some fairly strong opinions about this operation.
When considering breast augmentation surgery, I believe that the most important question for a prospective patient to ask themselves is this: Am I seeking a natural-appearing result? If the answer is yes, then seek out a surgeon who has the same aesthetic sensibility that you have (and appropriate training and experience). And insist on seeing `before and after’ photos. A lot of them.
