When you’re choosing a surgeon for breast augmentation in Tampa, you should make sure that his or her surgical philosophy is based on personalization. Steer clear of a doctor that says he only uses silicone or saline implants, or will only place implants under or over the pectoral muscle. These sorts of attitudes limit the options available to you as a patient, and could exclude an approach that is best for you.

Before determining what type of implant to use, where it will be placed, how large it will be, and other factors, your Tampa breast augmentation surgeon should interview you fully. He or she should ask questions about what you’d like your new breasts to look like and what sort of activities you take part in, along with more general questions about your health and goals for the surgery. He or she should also examine you, observing your build, the current state of your breasts, and other physical qualities. After a thorough interview and examination, your surgeon can recommend a type of breast implants, proper placement, and size, but ultimately, you will make the final decision with your surgeon’s guidance.  In some cases that may mean moderately sized saline implants placed over the muscle, in others it may mean larger “gummy bear” silicone breast implants inserted partially or completely under the muscle, or something totally different.

The important thing is that all of these options are available to you from the beginning of the process, and that your surgeon is open-minded about exploring combinations to find one that suits you perfectly. Dr. Daniel Greenwald at Bayshore Plastic Surgery is one such surgeon. For more than 10 years he’s provided countless patients from Clearwater, St Petersburg, Naples, Sarasota, and Tampa with breast augmentation procedures customized to meet their needs. Contact us today to schedule a consultation.
