Cosmetic Breast Surgery: Lessons Learned From 56,000 Breasts

I’ve examined a lot of breasts – at least 56,000 – during my career as a plastic surgeon. How’d I get to that number? About 7,000 women have come to me for breast augmentation surgery. On average, I see each woman about four times – once before her surgery and three times afterward for post-op visits.

I Used to Have Perky Breasts: What Happened?

No crystal ball can predict if, how much, and how soon your breasts will lose their shape and firmness, and if you’ll need breast implants or a breast lift to return them to their former glory.

Looking for a culprit? You can blame the following for the droop (medically known as ptosis). Hint: the “p” is psilent.
