The Perfect Breast
The "perfect breast" means something different to each and every one of us. For many women considering breast surgery in Sacramento, it can be hard to describe. At Kaufman & Clark Plastic Surgery, we often hear, "I'll know it when I see it." That's why photos can be so important during the surgical planning process. We invite you to browse our photo gallery and bring pictures of breasts that appeal to you when you come visit us.
Though your specifications for the perfect breast will be yours alone, there are some general characteristics to look for when you're planning a breast enhancement procedure. Cosmetic surgery results should create breasts that are symmetrical - in volume, shape and dimension. The nipple-areola complex should be proportionate in size to the breast mound and nipple height should be right in the center of the breast mound itself.
Restore, Reduce or Reshape?
Dr. Kaufman and Dr. Clark work with many women who were happy with their breasts in the past, but find their shape has, over time, become far from perfect as skin stretches and breasts sag lower and lower. This natural process can be reversed with a breast lift. Breasts no longer lie on the chest wall and nipples don't sag below the breast crease.
Other patients have been unhappy with their breasts for years. For women with overly large breasts, perfection includes the more proportionate look and increased comfort that come with breast reduction.
Patients who feel their breasts are simply too small or "empty" after pregnancy or weight loss seek an improved self-image and increased feeling of femininity through breast augmentation in Sacramento. In this case, the perfect breast has some volume to conceal the implant. The breasts do not droop and nipple height is typically around 18 to 20 cm from the sternal notch. For many patients whose body structure is fairly normal, the results can often be spectacular - almost like works of art.
