With nearly 300,000 breast augmentations performed in 2019, breast surgery has remained the number one aesthetic plastic surgery procedure since 2006. Given its immense popularity, you may be curious just exactly how a plastic surgeon performs breast augmentation. In his newest book, Shaping the Breast: A Comprehensive Approach in Augmentation, Revision, and Reconstruction, board certified Eugene plastic surgeon Dr. Kiya Movassaghi explains the most current innovations and trends in the field of breast surgery.
Shaping, not volumizing, the breast
Having served as a plastic surgeon in Eugene, OR for nearly 20 years, Dr. Movassaghi has performed thousands of breast augmentation, augmentation revision, and reconstruction surgeries. During his career, he has seen too many patients suffer from poor breast augmentation results. For this reason, Dr. Movassaghi argues that modern implant-based breast surgery must evolve away from simply volumizing the breasts and towards reshaping the breasts.
As plastic surgeons, it is our responsibility to provide patients with more than just large breasts; patients need breasts that look and function naturally and are unique to their body type.
According to Dr. Movassaghi, “While breast augmentation in the early part of the 21st century emphasized ‘bigger is better,’ patients are now opting for more natural-looking and proportionate breasts. Therefore, as plastic surgeons, it is our responsibility to provide patients with more than just large breasts; patients need breasts that look and function naturally, and are unique to their body type.”
Dr. Movassaghi explains that this transition is both timely and possible: in addition to a shift in patients wanting more understated aesthetic enhancements, innovations in surgical techniques and technology now allow surgeons to deliver superior shaping and more personalized results.
