Midland Plastic Surgeon Answers Patients' Questions about Breast Augmentation

Board certified plastic surgeon Kevin Cook, MD discusses the many options available when considering breast augmentation and responds to common patient inquiries

MIDLAND, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 12/01/16 -- For Midland plastic surgeon Kevin Cook, MD, breast augmentation is one of the most common procedures he performs. According to Dr. Cook, adult women of all ages come to his practice seeking to enhance the appearance of their bustline. Whether they desire fuller breasts, more shapely curves, or a more youthful lift to their breasts, he listens to their motivations and goals and carefully explains their breast augmentation options. He believes that the more informed his patients are about the procedure, the easier the process is to navigate.

One of the most common questions Dr. Cook hears is: which breast implants will give me the look I want? When it comes to breast implants, there are so many different choices for patients to make, he explains. Silicone or saline; round or anatomical; smooth or textured; the options can seem endless, but the bottom-line for many of his patients is which one is going to best meet their physical and cosmetic requirements. During the initial patient consultation, he emphasizes the plastic surgeon really has to understand the body he or she is working with, and how it will likely respond to different implants and breast augmentation techniques. He notes that walking the patient through the various types of implants, incision methods, and implant placement options is vital to reaching a mutual conclusion that can yield optimal results.

Often, patients also ask Dr. Cook which augmentation approach he thinks is best for achieving the end result they desire. In some cases, his patients have not considered adding a breast lift to their procedure to elevate the bustline, reduce drooping, reshape the breasts, and add volume with one surgery, he explains.

Ultimately, Dr. Cook's consultation process culminates in a discussion about the cost of breast augmentation surgery. At this point in the process, he and his staff are able to calculate a price based on the variables he and the patient have discussed. The cost of each procedure can vary, he explains, and it is important to receive a customized quote that lays out financial obligations very clearly. He also advises that, if patients are concerned about affording the cost of the surgery, exploring any financing options offered through the practice may be beneficial.
