As an Orange County breast augmentation surgeon with over ten years of experience, I have performed hundreds of breast augmentation procedures. Many surgeons use the term “specialist”, so I won’t use that term. However, I can confidently consider my self a “seasoned” breast augmentation surgeon.
So, is breast augmentation worth it? Remember, you as a patient are going to pay thousands of dollars, temporarily feel bad and look bad, for the hope that your breasts will look better after surgery!
Well, the answer is “it depends”. If you have realistic expectations and are doing the surgery for yourself and yourself only, then the satisfaction rate is very high. Although I haven’t done an actual survey, the satisfaction rate for breast augmentation seems to be greater than 90% in my practice. Realself.com, a reliable web-site, lists a satisfaction rate of 78% amongst respondents who had breast augmentation. Perhaps the difference is due to patients having unrealistic expectations and/or not achieving the result hoped for. As I have mentioned previously, selection of your surgeon is critical. He/she should be board certified in plastic surgery, and have before and after photo gallery either in the office or on-line (preferably both). It is important you feel comfortable with this person operating on you and like the result of his/her work.
