Breast augmentation is one of the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures in both the United States and the world. Estimates are that between 5 and 10% of all women in the U.S. have breast implants. Unfortunately, 25 to 40 percent of people who get breast implants end up having to undergo a secondary revisionary operation, according to the National Institute of Medicine. This may represent a significant health risk to patients and often causes financial burden, emotional duress, and physical pain.
Choosing to have breast enlargement surgery is a highly personal decision - some say one of the most deep-rooted emotional decisions a patient may make. Because of the popularity of this particular surgical procedure, patients are often presented with a host of alluring options, discounts and payment plans. The most important thing to remember about any surgical procedure, whether it is a life-saving emergency surgery or a pre-planned elective one, is that there are nuances and complexities associated with each individual patient, many of which can be assessed in advance. There is no one-size-fits-all implant; certain patients have bodies, skin or tissue that simply make their case more complicated. These patients, regardless of the operation they are having, need to take extra precautions to ensure they are in the hands of a seasoned surgeon.
Breast augmentation surgery has improved the lives and mindsets of countless patients, but it is also frequently denigrated through use of terms like "boob job" or images of only the most perfect bodies. Patients shouldn't expose themselves to potential risks by going to the surgeon that "all of the others" go to. So much of a patient's self-image revolves around this particular surgery. As such, patients need to do everything they can to ensure they are with a surgeon that helps them through the entire process from the initial consultation to surgery to the aftercare, and when necessary, the revisions and not one who is just ready to get to the next "boob job" in line. With Dr. Bindewald, patients can feel secure knowing they are in a skilled surgeon’s hands who has experienced complex surgical challenges and is an expert in handling them.
