Sometimes having small breasts can make a woman feel self-conscious and insecure. This can lead to low self-esteem. Many women have chosen to undergo breast augmentation surgery performed by Adam J. Rubinstein, M.D., F.A.C.S. Dr. Rubinstein knows the only way to enhance your breast size after the loss of volume from aging, weight loss, and pregnancy is the surgical procedure of augmentation. Dr. Rubinstein is a board-certified Miami plastic surgeon, who has performed breast augmentation on several residents of Hollywood, who have visited his Aventura facility for the procedures.
What is Breast Augmentation?
Breast augmentation surgery is performed when a woman wishes to change the shape and texture of her breasts. It can also be used to enlarge the breasts by implanting silicone or saline implants. Augmentation surgery is one of the most common cosmetic procedures requested by women today which offers long-lasting results.
Who Can Benefit from Breast Augmentation?
Most women are excellent candidates for breast augmentation. Augmentation is suitable for repairing:
- Differences in breast size.
- Increasing volume after pregnancy.
- Replacing volume after a mastectomy.
- Improving a woman’s overall proportions.
- Creating a symmetrical appearance.
Sometimes it is easiest for a woman to combine breast augmentation surgery with a breast lift. This provides her with the fullness she desires while giving her the extra lift to prevent sagging. The added benefit is having only one incision and one recovery period.
Custom Breast Augmentation
When deciding on the size and shape of your breast, it’s important to have realistic expectations. When having a consultation with Dr. Rubinstein, be honest about what is going to make you feel more confident. The goal isn’t to try to achieve an exact “cup size”, it is about creating the best aesthetic shape while considering chest dimensions, as well as overall height and weight. Dr. Rubinstein has developed a sizing process that is unique to his office. Most women know what is right for their body shape while others, through distorted body image may not be clear about what is right for them. Dr. Rubinstein fits his patients with temporary implants so they can see how their clothing will fit and get a feel for the extra weight. This enables them to feel more confident about their new breast size after the augmentation surgery. Most doctors estimate the size of your breast implants. Dr. Rubinstein believes the woman should choose what is right and wants each patient to show him pictures they perceive to be too big or too small. He never chooses implant sizes in advance. Most women already have a size in mind, this allows them to have a candid conversation with Dr. Rubinstein regarding what look they wish to achieve. When Dr. Rubinstein begins the breast augmentation procedure, he fits patients with a temporary implant to test different sizes, feel and volume while maintaining the correct breast asymmetry. Many women have one breast larger than the other. While they are slightly different in size, it takes careful calculation to get the asymmetry correct. Once everything is satisfactory, only then, will Dr. Rubinstein place the permanent implants. Dr. Rubinstein feels that his sizing process provides his clients with an accurate way to gauge the results of their augmentation. After surgery, his patients routinely report that their “size was just right”, “the size was perfect”, and most powerfully, “this is me!” If you live in Hollywood, contact our office today to schedule a consultation with Dr. Rubinstein to learn more about breast augmentation at his practice in Aventura.
