Frequently Asked Breast Augmentation Questions Answered by Orlando Plastic Surgeon
Dr. James Matas, Medical Director of the Advanced Centre for Plastic Surgery, answers some of the most common questions he hears from his patients regarding breast augmentation and breast implants.
Orlando, FL – Choosing to undergo breast augmentation is a significant and very personal decision for most women, reports Orlando plastic surgeon James Matas, MD. In his experience, women considering breast augmentation have lots of questions about the procedure itself, the many types of breast implants that are available, and the results they may be able to achieve. Dr. Matas has discovered his patients often begin their breast augmentation research online, and from there begin to formulate specific questions about their personal breast enlargement procedure. Ultimately, he explains, these questions are most accurately answered during a one-on-one consultation, as a detailed discussion of the highly-customized procedure depends on a thorough examination and conversation about the patient’s specific goals.
In a recent blog series on breast augmentation, Dr. Matas has answered many of the most common questions his patients ask about the procedure in an effort to provide a reliable, informational resource for patients who are beginning their journey:
Who Is a Good Candidate for Breast Augmentation?
Women who are 18-years-old and beyond, and in good health, can be candidates for breast augmentation, says Dr. Matas. While there is no upper age limit for breast augmentation, he explains that women who are in their late 40s and older often achieve optimal results from a breast lift combined with the addition of implants. During the consultation, Dr. Matas examines the condition of the skin and supportive musculature of the chest to determine which procedure, if any, is most suitable for obtaining each patient’s desired outcome.
How Can Breast Implants Change My Look?
Women are often surprised by the wide variety of options they have when it comes to choosing breast implants, Dr. Matas says. He offers a range of implant types, styles, sizes, and shapes, which makes it possible to achieve a look that is well suited to the patient’s figure and esthetic goals. Whether women want to achieve larger, firmer, more shapely, or more symmetrical breasts, he can typically create a custom-tailored breast augmentation plan to match their needs.
How Much Does Breast Augmentation Cost?
Every practice calculates the cost of procedures differently. At Dr. Matas’ practice, the cost of breast augmentation can vary depending on the length of the surgery and the price of the breast implants. The facility fee, anesthesia costs, and surgeon’s fee all fluctuate based on the time it takes to complete the surgery. During the consultation, once the breast implants and surgical plan have been determined, Dr. Matas provides each patient with an accurate cost assessment.
Breast augmentation can be a very rewarding procedure for women who desire to enhance the appearance of their breasts, adds Dr. Matas. He suggests that women considering breast augmentation find a board-certified plastic surgeon with experience performing cosmetic breast surgeries. Ultimately, Dr. Matas explains, a qualified plastic surgeon should provide valuable guidance throughout all stages of the procedure to deliver satisfying results.
