Plastic Surgeon in Glendale Explains Keys for Optimal Breast Augmentation Results
Dr. Steven H. Turkeltaub highlights candidacy, implant selection, realistic expectations and choosing the right plastic surgeon as essential components to achieving excellent breast augmentation outcomes.
Glendale, AZ — According to the most recent statistics released by the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS), breast augmentation was the second most popular cosmetic surgical procedure performed last year. In addition to its ability to effectively enhance both the size and appearance of patients’ breasts, one reason this procedure continues to top the list year after year is its high rate of patient satisfaction, states Glendale plastic surgeon Steven H. Turkeltaub, MD. In fact, he notes that the satisfaction rate for breast augmentation is approximately 94 percent, which is greater than essentially all other aesthetic surgeries performed.
At the Arizona Center for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, Dr. Turkeltaub states that there are several situations in which a breast augmentation could be beneficial for a woman contemplating it. A good candidate should be seeking one or more of the following:
- a wish to increase the size of her small breasts
- a desire to improve the appearance of her breasts
- to look much more attractive in a variety of articles of clothing
- to correct noticeable breast asymmetries
- to replace volume lost as a result of pregnancy and/or substantial weight loss
- to address minor breast drooping in addition to experiencing volume loss
Along with the above criteria, Dr. Turkeltaub indicates that selecting the proper breast implants and having realistic expectations for the procedure are also imperative to achieving excellent results. He notes that implant sizers, in-office imaging technology and before-and-after photos are great tools for helping patients visualize potential outcomes that can realistically be attained. Furthermore, he encourages patients to do their own research and find answers to any questions they have about breast augmentation prior to proceeding with treatment.
In addition to all other factors, Dr. Turkeltaub stresses the importance of consulting with a properly qualified physician. “While your candidacy, implants or expectations are essential components, the key to achieving the highest level of satisfaction for your breast augmentation procedure is to choose a board certified plastic surgeon who can safely perform your operation with utmost care and efficacy for optimal results.”
