Dear Dr. Togba,

Q.  This Christmas my husband gave me a breast augmentation. We’ve discussed my getting implants before but have been concerned about achieving a proportional balance for my body type. Beyond that, will they look and feel natural?

 A. Giving plastic surgery as a Christmas gift becomes more popular every year; many spouses share the decision, the concerns, and the pleasing results. Natural looking results can be attributed to several things: proper implants, the surgeon’s experience, and understanding of placement for the patient’s particular body type. There are many variations of implants: anatomical round, teardrop, textured, and smooth. The choice depends upon the body type, the breast shape, and the patient’s preference. We have before-and-after photos at our office to help you visualize both the pre-operative condition and the realistic post-operative result before making a decision.
