One of the most common causes for breast surgery re-operation after augmentation is patient dissatisfaction with the size of the implant.
Most Orange County patients who see me for a consultation ask to be a “full C cup”. This “size” has always baffled me, since bras come in C cup and D cups. One cannot buy a “full C cup” bra. Therefore, it is critical to synchronize the patient’s thought process into an actual size which the patient can see.
My philosophy is to find the largest implant which fits the patient’s body. By doing that, the implant complements, rather than exaggerate.
I have all my patients try the implant on with a sports bra. The patient can then see themselves in the mirror with and without clothing.
Since using this process, my re-operation rate due to implant size is less than 1%.
Many of my younger patients want to be “big”. I always tell my patients an exaggerated breast will get you attention, but not necessarily respect! It is better to gain people’s respect first, the attention will follow automatically.
