Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure designed to enhance the size and shape of the breasts, usually through the placement of breast implants. A woman might seek breast enlargement for any of a variety of reasons. For instance, the procedure can address a loss of breast tissue resulting from pregnancy, breastfeeding, weight reduction, or breast cancer surgery. Breast augmentation can also add volume and fullness to breasts that are naturally small or asymmetrical. Alternatively, a woman who is more concerned with breast ptosis, or sagging, might benefit from a breast lift performed instead of or in conjunction with breast augmentation.
In sum, the best candidates for breast augmentation are generally women who:
- Are dissatisfied with their naturally small or unevenly shaped breasts
- Would like to restore lost breast tissue and fullness
- Are physically and mentally healthy
- Are physically and emotionally mature
- Have realistic expectations
- Are seeking the procedure for reasons of their own, and not to please someone else
Women in the Tampa, FL, area who are interested in breast augmentation can discuss the procedure with Dr. Daniel Greenwald, a Board-certified plastic surgeon who established the Bayshore Plastic Surgery clinic in downtown Tampa in 1998. Consistently named one of the Best Doctors in Tampa Bay, as well as one of the Best Doctors in America, Dr. Greenwald has earned an outstanding nationwide reputation as a breast surgeon, and he is committed to providing attentive, world-class patient care.
During a personal appointment with Dr. Greenwald, a woman will have an opportunity to have her questions, concerns, and expectations addressed by a highly experienced and sought-after plastic surgeon. Following an in-depth discussion, Dr. Greenwald can determine whether she is a candidate for breast augmentation, and whether the procedure might be appropriate to achieve her aesthetic goals, by performing a physical examination to assess the size and shape of her breasts, the thickness and elasticity of her skin, and the positioning of her nipples and the inframammary crease under each breast.
Many of Dr. Greenwald’s prospective patients find it helpful to review his portfolio of before and after images of breast implants as part of the decision-making process regarding breast augmentation surgery. Of course, each patient’s experience is unique, but Dr. Greenwald can explain what an individual patient might expect both during and after her procedure, as well as the potential nature of her breast augmentation recovery.
