If you are like most women considering breast surgery, it’s likely that you have been thinking about this for most of your adult life. As a teenager you may have spent hours anxiously obsessing over when your breasts would finally start to to develop. Or perhaps it was just the opposite. Maybe you started maturing before your friends and self-consciously wished your breasts would stop growing so fast. Or maybe you were happy with your breasts before you had children and are now dismayed to see that your breasts have become unrecognizable after pregnancy and breast feeding.
Whatever situation is true for you, when you are unhappy with the size and shape of your breasts, it’s hard to be confident that you look and feel your best. Sure, well-proportioned breasts have been a beauty ideal for centuries. But that’s not the only reason women have breast surgery. Many just want to be able to find a bathing suit that fits!
Breast surgery is so popular with the women who visit us from the Knoxville area as well as Johnson City, Cookeville, and Cleveland because it addresses these concerns, achieving great results with a short procedure and a relatively quick recovery time. In a recent study, 96% of women who had these three procedures said they are either highly satisfied or satisfied with their results. Pretty extraordinary, right? The most common comment we hear from our breast patients after surgery is that they wished they hadn’t waited so long to get it done.
So, how popular is breast enhancement? Dr. David Reath performs more breast procedures than you might expect in little ole Knoxville, Tennessee… the average is between 250 and 300 every year when you combine breast augmentation, breast lift and breast reduction surgeries. Although he is very experienced with a refined aesthetic technique, he never treats any surgery as “routine”. Our entire staff recognizes that although we do this every day, this is a first for you and we welcome your questions. That’s why it is so important for you to find a plastic surgeon who will take the time to understand your goals rather than rush you. This is one area where one size does not fit all.
Whether you are thinking about a breast augmentation, a breast lift or a breast reduction, you probably have an image in your head of what you would like your breasts to look like. You may not have thought of it this way but your ideal breast size depends on many things besides the physical: your personality, what you do for a living, what kind of exercise you like to do and so on. In order to achieve the results you want, your surgeon needs to be present, really listen and not be focused on a computer avatar.
Dr. Reath will tell you that even though breast procedures don’t take as much time in the operating room as some of his other procedures, he takes the most time with his breast surgery patients during their consultation. You may have to wait a little bit for an appointment, but you’re worth it, right?
