Breast Augmentation, also called Augmentation Mammaplasty, or Breast Implant Surgery if using an implantation device. Which is the surgical procedure to enlarge a woman’s breast using breast implants. In Las Vegas, breast implants are the most common plastic surgery procedure, which is performed by Dr. Lane Smith. Breast Implants are also generally associated as a one of highest satisfaction rates of all cosmetic surgery procedures.
By far the most common way is to place silicone or saline breast implants. However, fat can be transferred from other areas, such as the waist or abdomen, to the breasts for breast enlargement or breast augmentation. Since fat is the patient’s own “natural” tissue, fat transfer to the breast has been termed “Natural Breast Augmentation” or “Natural Breast Implantation”.
Breast Surgeon Reviews are Important
Make sure you review pictures of the surgeon’s work on previous patients, but clearly understand that this does not guarantee you the same result. It’s also beneficial to ask around to research breast surgeon reviews from other patients. It is also helpful to make sure all your questions are answered to your satisfaction.
It is surprising to me that patients will often “bargain shop” when considering plastic surgery. When your health and final appearance are at stake, this is no time to be cheap. Certainly there is some “hype” in plastic surgery and some plastic surgeons are definitely overpriced. However, price difference among surgeons should not be a major factor in choosing your surgeon. The results of your surgery are highly surgeon dependent and it is extremely foolish to make your choice based on price alone.
Finally, it is important to get to know the surgeon. It is critical that you like the surgeon and that the surgeon likes you. Generally, you should have a good, positive feeling about your surgeon. You need to feel that the surgeon has your best interests at heart and that your surgeon is a genuinely caring and kind individual, who is also skilled and highly trained.
Boob Job Surgery?
If you can’t find many doctors performing boob job surgeries, it’s because we prefer to call the surgery “Breast Augmentation”. It’s assumed the “job” being performed is augmenting, increasing the size of the breast tissue. Dr. Lane Smith is, not only, one of the leading breast implant surgeons in Las Vegas, however he’s ranked as one of the highest surgeons in the country.
Breast Implant Guide
The American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery put together a resource for women looking to learn more about “boob jobs”, which we do not prefer that term. We find it’s important to educate yourself as a consumer, and learn as much as possible about this life-changing procedure. In this guide, you’ll find pros and cons about breast implants, how the procedure is performed, how your breast implants will be placed, and what options you should consider. Or, visit our interactive narrative that will guide you through an online presentation.
Choosing the best breast implant surgeon is an enormously personal and individual choice. It is very important that your surgeon be well trained and qualified to do the procedure you are thinking about. An American Board of Medical Specialty should certify a surgeon. The American board of plastic surgery is the most important board regulating plastic surgeons and their training. You can also contact the American Board of Plastic surgery at their website www.abplsurg.org or call them directly at (215) 587-9322.
Even if a surgeon is board-certified that is still not a guarantee that the surgeon can perform the procedure to the level of excellence that you may desire. It is important to make sure your surgeon trained at universities that are well known for excellence. Many doctors receive training in foreign countries where the requirements for training are more lax then those in the United States. Currently the United States has the most rigorous and organized medical training in the world. Make sure your surgeon has done all of their training in the United States, especially medical school and residency. Also make sure your surgeon has trained at centers known for excellence.
